JEE Advanced 2017 Result: Daily Wager's Son In Odisha Clinches 582 Rank

New Delhi:  When nationwide students were excited about their JEE Advanced 2017 result, on 11 June, it was a moment to rejoice for Bikash Das from Odisha's Jagatsinghpur district. Beating poverty through sheer determination, Bikash Das has added one more to the tales of hard work and perseverance. The son of a daily wager from a small village has cleared the much coveted JEE Advanced 2017 and has secured 582 rank in the Scheduled Caste (SC) category. Bikash Das, who belongs to a family that comes below the poverty line, is now eligible for a seat in the IIT.

When asked about his son's success, father Bijoy Das said that Bikash had never been to an English medium school. He studied at the primary and high school in the village and was good in academics.


"I am a farm labourer. I toil in the field to earn my livelihood. Despite severe fiscal constraints, I prioritised my son's education. From his primary school days, he showed brilliance in studies in Manapur upper primary school. I saved money for his studies. I am really happy now," Das said to PTI.

"My father is my inspiration, guide and philosopher. He sweated it out to financially support me in my studies. He never made me feel the pangs of poverty. Whatever I have achieved today is only because of him," Bikash said.

"Parental support with hard work has paved the way for my success. I never believed in shortcuts to achieve success," he said.
