Chob Singh, a son of a small farmer, from a village in Rajasthan’s Dholpur district has overcome all hurdles to crack the prestigious National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET).
Singh, who studied under lanterns for the most part of his life, secured an All India Rank of 330 in Other Backward Caste (OBC) category and 1,413 AIR in general category.
Hailing from Basiyalalu village, around 15 km away from district headquarter of Dholpur, Singh’s journey to success has not been smooth.
His father, Ramsahay Singh, has only three bighas of agricultural land and also works as a construction worker in the village to support his family of five, including two sons, a daughter and wife.
“I myself worked in the agricultural fields while studying in a village school to help my father,” the 20-year-old said.
Ramsahay said that he faced difficulty in arranging for money for his children’s education but “eventually god has blessed them”. Singh’s elder brother is in college.
