Rag picker’s son battles hardship, gets MBBS admission in AIIMS

Dewas: A ragpicker’s son, Asharam Choudhary, has got admission for MBBS at the All India Institute for Medical Sciences in Jodhpur.

Reflecting on the same, he said, “I want to thank my parents and Navodaya Vidyalaya, and also Dakshina foundation for providing me financial help. A doctor in my village inspired me to choose this profession, when I was in fifth standard.”

Father of Asharam said, “My son completed 12th standard and then got admission in AIIMS, Jodhpur. We do not have sufficient money, and are expecting help from others. We have been helped by a few people in the past, including the Additional District Magistrate.”

Asharam’s neighbour hailed his dedication and said, “Despite no light, he used to study, Asharam did a lot of hard work, and we are very proud of him. We are proud that he belongs to our village and despite his father’s poor financial condition, he worked very hard.”

Asharam is an inspiration to many and he has proved that if there is a will, there will always be a way. (ANI)
