Ambalapuzha (Alappuzha): Abhinash Chethri from Bengal has excelled in the public examination conducted by the Directorate of Higher Secondary Education in Kerala by scoring A-plus grades for all the Plus-2 subjects. He could achieve this incredible success after learning Malayalam language and attempted the public examinations held in March-April just like other native speakers here.
Abhinash who came to Kerala six years ago, went for private tuitions to learn Malayalam. He studied at Maria Montessori Central School at Ambalapuzha for Class-7 before moving to Government Model Higher Secondary School for high school education. He then joined KK Kunjupillai Memorial Higher Secondary School for higher-secondary course.
Abhinash is addressed as ‘Bhai’ by the people of the quaint countryside of Ambalapuzha in Alappuzha district. He is a familiar face as he distributes newspapers in their homes. When the newspapers published the Plus-Two results on Tuesday, the natives were quite surprised to find Abhinash’s picture among the list of students who bagged full A-plus.
Abhinash was at his native place in Alipurduar district of West Bengal when the HSC results came out. He is the son of Geetha Chetri who hails from Ramjoda in Alipurduar. It was Abhinash’s sister Pooja, who came to Ambalapuzha first. She worked as a beautician here before bringing here family too. She then met Ambalapuzha native Sharath Ashok and had tied the knot.
Even though his brother–in-law supports his education, Abhinash began distributing newspapers to find income for his personal expenses. He would complete his job early in the morning before attending the school.
Abhinash had scored A-plus grades for all the subjects in Secondary School Leaving Certificate examination too. He is preparing to attend the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test for under-graduate medical admission.
