Alikka at 71, passes class 10 with A+ to his credit
Kalpetta: Passing out class ten with A + is very common nowadays, but not easy at the age of 71. With will and determination Alikka has rewritten this and passed class 10 with flying colors, two A+ in Information Technology and Hindi and an A grade in Chemistry to his credit.
For obtaining the driver’s badge for driving auto rickshaw, Alikka restarted his studies that was terminated at class four.
Once coming to know about the law that permitted only those with eight standard pass to obtain the driver’s badge, Alikka reached the RT office. The officers taunted him asking why not look for other jobs.
But Alikka was not ready to give up. He joined the Saksharatha Mission programme three years back. First he passed the seventh class and then the tenth.
And now Alikka is gearing up for the twelfth standard.
