Daily wager's son clears JEE (Advanced) in Odisha
A daily wager's son from a village in Odisha's Jagatsinghpur district has cleared the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced), clinching 582 rank in the Scheduled Caste (SC) category.
Bikash Das, who belongs to a family that comes below the poverty line, has secured 582 rank in the SC category, and is now eligible for a seat in the IIT.
His father, Bijoy Das, said, "Bikash never studied in an English medium school. He received his education at the primary and high school in the village and was good in academics."
"Parental support with hard work has paved the way for my success. I never believed in shortcuts to achieve success," Bikash said. MPOST
