Prakash Fulwariya, a son of construction worker secured second rank in the state in Class 12 Arts Examinations.
Fulwariya of Loharawa village in Barmer district said he wants to become an IAS officer. His father, Channa Ram, works on construction sites. He has been bed-ridden for some time after a paralytic attack.
The young boy got 100 marks in Hindi and History, 99 in Hindi Literature and English, and 98 in Political Science.
“In our village, power cut is a big problem. Often my sister and I had to study using torch. On most days, there was no electricity at night,” said Fulwariya.
His elder sister, also in Class 12, scored 83%. Prakash is second among the siblings.
“For lack of resources, I will go to a nearby college for higher education. After graduation, I will prepare for the civil services examination. I want to become an IAS to help poor students like me who live in remote areas like mine,” said Fulwariya.
He said he didn’t know if he will be able to go to Jaipur or Delhi to prepare for the CS examination because his father, the only earning member of the family, was on bed. The boy scored 97% in Class 10.
