Bengaluru: An ITI student who had left home to work in Bengaluru and support his family was encouraged by the PUC board officials to crack the PUC exam.
Deputy director of exams, Lakshmi and her staff supported 20-year-old Dhananjaya to aim high and enroll for PUC. He said he was enrolled in a private tutorial in Malleshwaram and was tutored by government teachers in Bhadravathi.
Teachers like Uday Kumar, Suresh and Sandhya, all helped him improve in the last 20 days before the exams. He took arts and scored 273 marks and cleared his exams.
"For a person like me who use to take files from one table to another, clean the table, and do all the job that a helper does no one cares, but the officials motivated me to enroll and clear the exams. I will do my graduation now and continue to work as a Group D Worker on a temporary basis until I pass my graduation," Dhananjaya said.
Lakshmi said, “Dhananjaya was very active and wanted to move up the social ladder, but did not know how. He used to work and later sleep in one of the office rooms in the night. Looking at his efforts and sincerity, we motivated him to take up higher studies. His parents are poor daily wage labourers at a farm field. And his siblings are also studying. His sister is doing PUC and her brother is working at a factory after as obtaining an ITI certificate.”
