India truly gives some of the most inspiring stories that can spur up anyone. An 18-year-old prepared for his IIT from an open jail facility and cracked the exam. He prepared from the open jail facility as his father was a convict there. His father Phool Chand, after spending 14 years in Jail, has been moved to an open facility where he can go out for work in the morning but have to return to jail in the evening. His son Piyush has secured 458th rank in Engineering entrance exams of IIT.
Father stands by his son
The 18-year-old studied from his father’s cell in Kota jail as he could not afford much for his son Piyush to study. However, he did send his son to tuition classes for preparation. Piyush never complained and in fact, he is grateful to his dad for the courage he had shown and determination in keeping him at the facility and supporting him in studies. He also is grateful to the jail authorities for allowing him to study there. The jail authorities and his parents have expressed their happiness over the fact that his son has cleared the exams under adverse circumstances.
The Logical Indian salutes Piyush for his determination and proving to the world the anything is possible with hard work and determination. We realize how wonderful his family would be feeling, it’s a future they can look forward to with hope.
