We heard a lot about the success of the students who come from humble background and their stupendous success at IIT-JEE exams. Now these Hero’s are setting examples for thousands other who migrate to others parts of the country for better educational opportunities.
Not only they have done our state proud by securing ranks in the IIT-JEE exams but they are now setting exemplary benchmarks for others on how individuals can make difference to the lives of others.
The four IIT students Jainesh Sinha, Harsh Pallav, Saurav Kumar, and Roshan Kumar have identified six children from the streets of Patna for future training for IIT-JEE exams.
They say this is their way of fulfilling a “give back to Bihar” promise they made their gurus at the institution.
“This group of IIT students was in the state during the summer vacation. I gave them the task of hunting for 5-6 talented children forced by poverty to work as child labourers,” says Abhayanand. “And they have done an excellent job.” Now, he says, it is for “the government and respected members of society” to come forward to sponsor the studies of these children.
The six children are to be presented before Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as well as prominent citizens at a show where they will display their talents. Said Jainesh Sinha, who was part of the search team and is now preparing them for the show, “They are gems. They need our help and support and I am sure they will blossom into geniuses.”
Sinha and his friends say they went around on a rigorous scouting trip, visiting street children, those living on railway platforms and others in remand homes.
Said Abhayanand, “We help talented poor students to crack the IIT entrance. But there are talents who will never be able to reach our institute as they don’t get an opportunity to study. We want society to ensure these talents study, otherwise it will be a national loss.”
