Inspiration - They sold samosas to educate their son, he did them proud with 64th rank in IIT-JEE
Subba Rao says that they have always spent as much as they could on Mohan’s and his sister’s education, never even saving for the future.
Outside a faded blue room in one of the narrow lanes of KPHB colony, the smell of freshly fried samosas pervades the air. Today, the small workshop and kitchen wears a festive mood as the family sets to work preparing 300 samosas instead of the usual quota of 200.
“My son has secured 64th rank in this year’s Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced and has topped JEE mains. People are coming home every now and then to congratulate him. So, we are making extra samosas,” says V Subba Rao, who runs the workshop, his eyes aglow with pride.
V Mohan Abhyas, his son, has secured the 64th rank in the JEE Advanced exams with 310 out of 366 marks. In the JEE Mains results announced in April, he bagged the all-India sixth rank and the top rank in south India.
What’s more, Mohan also topped the Andhra Pradesh Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (AP EAMCET) this year and secured the fifth rank in the Telangana State EAMCET.
