Abhijith attends Plus Two exam hours after father's demise
Iringalakuda: Abhijith woke up to the news of his father’s demise on Wednesday morning. However, he decided to attend the ongoing Plus Two exam, despite the heartbreak.
He called up his teachers and informed his father’s death. They arrived at his house to console the child. A few hours later he went to Iringalakuda St Mary’s HSS to attend the exam.
Abhijith’s father, Devarajan (48) was a cancer patient. He passed away on Wednesday morning 3.30 am at the Alpha Palliative Centre in Edamuttam. His body was brought home in the morning and the funeral was held by afternoon after Abhijith returned from school.
A Plus Two science stream student, Abhijith had been working as a balloon vendor and at petrol pumps since his father fell ill. His mother’s job was the only resort the family had for his studies, family expense and father’s treatment. For his SSLC exam in 2018, he had scored full A+ grades.
Knowing the situation of the family, under the initiative of CPM Pullur local committee, 3 cents of land and a small house was given to the family.
