“I am the only son of my parents. My father was a driver. Four years before he died in a road accident. Even our family came to know about that news through News paper only. After his death, our family income was totally dropped.
My mother also a sick patient and not able to go for regular job. At this terrible situation I was forced to go for job and to discontinue my education. But I was very much interested in studies. Our family income status put no hope for my education. Even at that juncture, I studied very hard but I was not able to fetch good marks in exams, due to my poor hand writing. My class teacher guided me to go for handwriting coaching class. But I was not in a position to pay monthly fees for that class. At this time I came to known about SEESHA through Jesus calls magazine at our neighbour`s home and it gave the information about Seesha that they are supporting financially several poor students through their monthly scholarships. Immediately applied for the same. Now I am also a beneficiary of Seesha since 2007, which gave hope in life and I have also joined the hand writing coaching class. Then, my hand writing was improved and I scored good marks. I have utilizing the Seesha scholarships for buying needed books for my exams. During my past days I was not in a position to pay for map book or note books or any of study material in class. I praise God and wholeheartedly thank Dr. Paul Dhinakaran and SEESHA for their humanitarian help which has transformed my life and given me a new hope. Now I have completed my XII std successfully”.
