But four years ago, Sukanya's father, Baskar, died in a road accident. Now, after completing two years of study, the young woman's family does not have the money to support her studies. Sukanya still has two and a half years of studies to complete and requires Rs 20 lakh towards her fees to earn her MBBS degree.
Sukanya says her family lives in a rented home and nobody offers them a loan as they don't have any property to pledge. She now seeks help, or even a loan to get back to college.
Her mother B Sathya, who used to be a housewife, now earns Rs 10,000 a month by working for a private firm.
"She has been at home for a year and a half. We tried all possible things. Finally we are asking the government," says her mother.
With time running out, Sukanya's hoping against hope that help would reach her to fulfil her father's dream of serving others as a doctor.
