Cops pool money to reward physically-challenged boy who cleared Class-10
In a humanitarian gesture, some police personnel in Palghar, Maharashtra pooled Rs. 21,000 to reward a physically challenged 17-year-old tribal boy who wrote his Class 10 exams with his feet and secured 75.4% marks. Kalpesh Dhoda, from Kallole village in Palghar, was born without both the hands. His father works as a security guard at a firm while his mother is a farm laborer.
Boy's grit to study didn't let disability come in way
The boy's grit to study didn't let his disability and poor financial background came in the way. Dhoda, who studied at a government ashram school for tribals (a residential school) at Betegaon, appeared for his Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Examination conducted recently. The cops were moved by Dhoda's determination to invalidate his physical challenges. So, they decided to pool money for his higher education.
Boy's parents happy to receive money
Palghar's Additional Superintendent of Police Yogesh Chavan lauded policemen's gesture, who also assured to provide any further assistance required for his higher education. The emotionally overwhelmed parents of the boy were happy to receive the money.
