SURAT: This diamond city has a Phungsuk Wangdu of the ‘3 Idiots’ fame in 24-year-old office boy, Shailesh Ghule, who has cleared his final CA exams with flying colours.

Unlike Wangdu aka Aamir Khan, Shailesh did not impersonate anyone to pursue his love for studies, but does have the same background. Living in a 12×25 room in a slum in Limbayat with a family of five, he has successfully stepped in the world of chartered accountants. He cleared his CA final exams with 220 and 210 marks in both the groups and ultimately plans to set up his own consultancy firm.

Shailesh, youngest son of housemaid Nirmala and textile loom worker Arun, a migrant Maharashtrian family, studied in Sarvajanik High school in Marathi medium and did BCom from IGNOU. While doing BCom he came in touch with Jay Chhaira, his tutor and employer, running the Institute of Professional Studies in Athwalines. He joined the institute as a student-cum-office-boy so that he doesn’t have to put any financial burden on his father and elder brother.

Many have seen Shailesh sitting quietly on the third floor steps of Tirupati Plaza engrossed in studies. Many have also seen him riding 7 km every day from Limbayat to the institute. “With a monthly income of Rs 6,000 I knew I could not expect money from my family. So I decided to work and earn for my education,” Shailesh told reporters. He did lose heart in between and left studies completely for two years, only to return with more vigour and clear every exam. After clearing his initial exams, he served his articleship and internship at Sushil Banadhiya and Sons and Kaniya Asava and Company. Chhaira, his tutor, said, “This boy always had the will to succeed”.

    Hi,

    Convey my sincere regards to your parents.Who given birth to a great son.

    No doubt, this is correct word as i heard from some where, the quote is that “if you born as poor,its not your problem but if you die as a poor then its your problem”.

    You shown to this young world that, to become super, no need of excuses like tuition,donation,fund,financial problem etc and this is the reason i am not able to study.

    regards
    bharat jain.
    Keep it.
