Ranchi, Rajesh Jha: Dr. Sufal Ekka is no less than an example for those who accept defeat due to difficulties and curse their fate. Dr. Ekka is the principal of ‘W John Multipurpose Boarding School’ and is running it successfully. He understood the value of education in his childhood, so despite the family’s financial condition not being good and getting married at an early age, he pursued higher education with his stubbornness.

Throughout the year one had to travel on the path full of forest, river-drain and pebble-stone. After passing the eighth standard, the mother said, now do not want to study further, because the father was paralyzed. He told his mother that whatever is the work of the house, you should tell me a day in advance. I will complete it before going to school or after coming from school. The mother agreed and he was admitted to the high school, but he had to walk 12 kilometers to reach this school. But fulfilling the promise made to his mother, he started commuting on foot everyday. In the summer days or on every Saturday morning, there was school, so we had to leave after getting up in the dark. Then even after being paralyzed, father used to come with me half way before sunrise. Despite being physically helpless, he had a desire that his children should study.
