Joy in the life of a boy

Karthikeyan, son of a mill worker doing his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering in a private polytechnic walked out of the Singanallur police station on Wednesday morning with a smile written large on his face.The reason for the smile was that until Wednesday morning uncertainty loomed large on the prospects of he continuing his education because of his inability to pay the fee.

The boy who had scored 1,035 marks in Plus Two managed to enter the polytechnic but lack of resources threatened his education.The boy’s elder brother is studying in a reputed engineering college and has two sisters one is already into school while the other is a toddler.The father working as a coolie wasn’t able to mobilise the funds.

Not losing hope, the boy knocked the doors of the City Police Commissioner, P. Sivanandi who gave a patient hearing and entrusted the job to Deputy Commissioner of Police, P. Nagarajan and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Gopalasamy. The boy who resides in Singanallur was directed to approach the Singanallur Police Inspector, O. Vetriselvan.. Vetriselvan said that society should always owe a percentage of their earning to the community around. When the boy’s story was narrated three philanthropists immediately came forward to share the cost. All the three of them refused to even identify themselves and said that good deeds need to be done silently without making any noise.Not willing to embarrass the boy, police even decided not to take any photograph when the money was being handed over.

The boy was given financial help with a condition that the fee paid should be utilised well by scoring best marks and in return a lateral entry seat in an engineering college was promised to the boy when he completes the diploma. In return, the boy was asked to promise that when he starts earning, he would pay a minimum possible amount every month to an orphanage in Singanallur.
