Somnath Giram, a 28-year-old tea seller from Pune, has been appointed as Maharashtra’s brand Ambassador for Education.
Somnath, who is a son son of a farmer couldn’t gather enough funds for his to pursue his BCom and thus, in 2008, he left his hometown of Solapur and came to Pune. There he opened a small tea stall in Sadashiv Peth. Slowly, his business grew along and he started to earn Rs 10,000 to 12,000 a month.
It was his desire to study, for which he tried relentlessly and gradually, he completed his BCom, MCom and then Chartered Accountancy (CA). Currently, he has started practicing as a CA, but his tea stall still exists. He has hired help to run it.
With Giram’s inspiring success story of “earn and learn”, the Fadnavis government hopes to encourage those youngsters who struggle for funds to complete their higher education.
The Logical Indian congratulates Mr Giram for his achievement. We hope his story inspires many others to work hard and chase their dreams.
