Nagesh, who scored 993 out of 1000 to top the Andhra Board Higher Secondary Examinations for the year 2009 can now fulfil his dream of pursuing his studies in BITS Pilani. NIRMAAN NGO and BITS Alumni promised to offer him financial and need based assistance for all four years of his college education.
As with any state topper, Nagesh secured direct admission to BITS-Pilani (University policy after the introduction of BITSAT). ‘Eenadu’ a Telugu newspaper reported that Nagesh would not be able to afford the education at BITS Pilani as he is from an economically disadvantaged family. Proud to be BITSian Rakesh Anugula, one of the founding members of the NGO Nirmaan got in touch with Nagesh (Mobile 91-9848319458) as soon as he came across the news. Another Proud to be BITSian Eashwar Koneru from BITS Alumni Association – BITSAA 75-80 batch swung into action and assured support from his batch. Eshwar and Nirmaan have confirmed Nagesh that they together will help pay his admission fee and first year tuition fee. They also promised that they will be open to help him in case if he needs additional assistance for his BITS education.
The initiative taken by BITSAA and Nirmaan for the education of Nagesh goes to show that when a mission is taken up with passion, there are no dreams too large and no frontiers beyond reach
