A proud moment for father

It was a proud moment for 42-year-old Banwari Lal Jaatav. Like every day, he was working as a labourer under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA) near his village in Pipahera in Dholpur, Rajasthan. At that time, the village pradhan broke out the good news that Banwari’s eldest son Nitin has cracked IIT exam and has secured 499th all-India rank.


A good student who got better

Nitin has managed to study for free at Navyodaya Vidhyalaya and also took IIT coaching with the help of a scholarship.  Nitin has always been a good student, who scored 85% marks in Class X and 84% marks in Class XII. Now that he has cracked IIT, his family is worried about paying the fees. Nitin told Times of India, “As I am a Dalit, I don’t need to pay what candidates of general class pay, but still I need money. Though I have cracked it, money is still a matter of concern for the family as my father is a MNREGA worker.” Nitin wishes to pursue electrical engineering from IIT Kharagpur.


The Logical Indian applauds the grit and determination of Nitin that he had exhibited to overcome hurdles, compete in one of the toughest exams and make it through to one of the most elite institutions of India. Nitin hopefully will inspire many who do not have the means to quality education to aspire for greatness and achieve it.
