Prime Minister Narendra Modi had met Tanishka on April 1 when he was in Bhopal to attend the joint commanders conference. Her father Sujit Chandran died during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Her mother Anubha recalled that Tanishka was appearing for her Class 12 exams then. When her father died, she had two more papers to write. But she gathered courage and wrote the remaining two papers, and passed the exam with flying colours. “Wherever my husband is, he must be super delighted with his daughter's feat,” Anubha said.
