Binita Jain is KBC 10's first crorepatni!

Friday, October 05, 2018

The media reports that the first winner of Rs 1 crore prize for this season of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is Binita Jain from Guwahati. Binita, who says she’s feeling on top of the world currently, has a somewhat unusual story. An incident that took place about 15 years ago turned her life inside out. The Jains are settled in Assam and Binita’s husband would often travel to the neighbouring states on work. On one such trip in 2003, he left his home in Guwahati and never returned. “Those were the days when terrorist activities were at their peak,” recalled 46-year-old Binita, sharing her husband’s story. Binita believes that her husband was abducted by terrorists, never to return. After several failed attempts to find him by the family, Binita realised that she had to start taking control of her family’s finances even as she was waiting for her husband’s return. As her husband was the sole earning member of the family, with his disappearance, the responsibility fell on her shoulders. Said Binita: “I was distraught by whatever happened. But I gathered my courage for my children. Seeing their faces gave me confidence every day. I came out of the troubled times and started a new life.” She started taking tuition classes and began with seven students. “It started with few students and then as more started coming in, I knew this was my calling,” she said.Today, she teaches 125 students. Although her husband has been declared dead by the courts, she lives in the hope that he will return one day. The teacher further added that women, unfortunately, don’t know their real potential. “They are much more powerful than men. It’s all about discovering our true talent. We can also deal with tough situations better,” she smiled to say. We agree!
