Education might be a right in India but as most of us know, it’s not easy to get an education and even tougher to get a decent sort of education. Due to the deplorable state of public education, there are a high number of drop-outs every year. However, there are also those who fight all odds to earn an education.

A 17-year-old rickshaw puller from Bakhtiyarpur, Bihar, Paras Kumar works all summer vacation so he can afford to buy books. He recently passed his matriculation examination with a second division.
