Kundapur: Education has no barriers, Migrant Worker Scores Distinction in SSLC Exam

Kundapur: Education has no barriers. The process of gaining knowledge doesn’t require better housing and basic amenities, but sheer will and dedication. Hanumantha (18), a migrant worker, worked hard on Sundays selling plastic materials to support his education and family but on weekdays, he concentrated more and more on studies. As a result, he passed the SSLC examinations with distinction (545 marks).


While parents these days rely on tuitions and coaching for their children, there was no one to guide Hanumantha. His school teachers were his mentors who guided him in the classroom and his parents, despite being busy with their work, supported Hanumantha in his studies.

Hanumantha is a native of Siggaon, Haveri. His parents migrated to Kundapur 16 years ago for better life. They live in a tent at Kalavar along with Hanumantha and his brothers. Hanumantha studied up to 2 standard in Siggaon but as his family migrated to Kundapur, he was unable to attend classes for 2 years.

When the family realized Hanumantha’s urge to study, his father Galeppa and brothers Ganga and Prashanth admitted him to the Government Higher Primary School, Kalavar. His sheer dedication helped him to excel in all subjects. His family even supported Hanumantha to continue his high school education at the Netaji Subhashchandra Bose High School. During weekends Hanumantha helped his family to sell plastic materials. He has lived upto the aspirations of his family by scoring 545 (87.20%) in SSLC examinations. His hard work has paid off and now Hanumantha wants to be a Chartered Accountant.

He has enrolled himself in Commerce stream in Government Junior College, Kundapur. The college principal Subramanya Joshi and his faculty have geared up to support Hanumatha in realizing his dream of becoming a Chartered Accountant. Hanumantha is a role model to students.

Hanumantha expressed his joy of passing with distinction and shared his experience with www.mangalorean.com saying, “We belong to a Dalit family. We had to migrate to Kundapur to support our family. My family supported me in every aspect of my life. I want to make my family proud.”
