 KALAIGAON, Feb 19 – A rare example of honesty set by some schoolgirls here have come to light to inspire thousands of others. 

On February 12, a day after the Saraswati Puja, a few students of Kalaigaon Girls’ High School, who had been cleaning the school campus, found a bag on KR Road, in front of the school, containing eight thousand rupees and some important documents. Instead of sharing the money among themselves, the honest girls handed over the bag to Achyut Roy Choudhury, Headmaster of the school, who in turn arranged to return it to its owner one Ram Chouhan.

The happy owner offered some cash reward to the girls, but they politely refused, saying it was their duty. The girls were Sangita Deka, Priyanka Saharia, Sumi Nath, Kanak Lata Nath, Runu Deka, Mousumi Kataki, Parismita Deka, Santana Sarma and Rumi Deka.
