Sanjoy Mohanta

Following the newspaper report, we selected Sanjoy Mohanta, a student from a remote village near Balurghat in Dakshin Dinajpur, who scored over 83% in 2010 Madhyamik examination. We talked to Mr. Manabendra Chakrabarty, Sanjoy's teacher. He told Padakshep that nearly 80% of the people in Sanjoy's village live below poverty line. Sanjoy's father used to be carpenter till an accident robbed him of his ability to work. In a family of four, his mother has to work and his elder brother has to share his time between studying B.A., taking tuitions and working as a labour to support the family. Padakshep will make sure that Sanjoy can concentrate on what he likes to do, and that is pursuing his studies. Sanjoy is now getting ready for his undergraduate studies in a good college.
