Meet Dr. Ramesh. A Journey from Kallakurichi to University of Technology at Sydney.

Updated: 6 days ago

Another well example for the Hard Work Never Fail slogan. Dr.Ramesh who pursuit of success from a rural government in Kallakurichi district. He did many odd jobs to support his studies and the family during school days. His father Krishnan is a small farmer who is typically weighed down by agricultural loans. The family lived in a hut. His mother Selvi was crippled and Ramesh’s elder sister dropped out of school after 7th standard due to family situation.


Despite the struggles, Ramesh was keen to study. He scored 448 out of 500 with a centum in Mathematics in his SSLC. He had to travel seven kilometers one way on his bicycle to reach the higher secondary school in Sankarapuram. And he had chores to complete before leaving for school: he had to pluck the green leaves and vegetables from the farm and sell them in nearby villages.
