Amazing story of a Nagore nursing student

We got a request for help from a student who is studying B.Sc Nursing at Madras Medical College. Our member Venkatramani Balasubramanian referred this student. He is from Nagore (Nagapattinam dt) and secured 488/500 in SSLC. His father, a fisherman, is a drunkard and is not with the family now. His mother is mentally challenged and is in an asylum. He has a younger brother studying +2 now. Bala's father published a special story about him in Indian Express after the SSLC exam as he emerged the district topper amid all difficulties in life. That article fetched him support from the District Collector for his HSC expenses.

This boy faced some health problems right after the +2 practical exam and was hospitalized. So, he could not attend the public exam. He later appeared for supplementary exam. He secured around 1050 and got admission for BDS, but chose B.SC Nursing as job opportunities are very bright. He is in the first year now.

His uncle, a school teacher was paying his fees and mess bill. Since his uncle's daughter has also joined Engineering, he is not in a position to support him now. He is an amazing boy and we decided to help him for his mess bills. HM trust sent DD for Rs. 10000 towards his 4 months mess bill on March 28th.
