A shining victory in the midst of poverty
Pookkottumpadam (Malappuram): Poverty and misery never stopped this young boy’s determination to score high marks in the last SSLC examination. Niyog, a student of Government Higher Secondary School here, grabbed A plus in all subjects overcoming the hardships in his life.
Niyog is the youngest of the three children of Jyothi and Rajappan, residents of Amarambalam panchayath. Rajappan is unable to go to work due to health problems. His mother works as a house maid and she is the only breadwinner of the family now.
The five-member family lives in a small house with metal roof built on three-and-a-half cent plot. They do not even have an electricity connection.
Niyog and his family are now struggling to find money to continue his education.
