Abhyas’s idol is Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and he wants to be a successful scientist just like Kalam. He is desirous of joining the Indian Institute of Technology and pursue research in physics. Speaking to ANI News, he says,
I credit my success to my parents. It might be a small thing for students like me, but for my parents it is a great achievement. After all the hard work they have done for us, they deserve it. With the annual income of Rs. one lakh we could only afford school fees and two meals.
Abhyas used to help his parents make samosas and also study simultaneously.
Overwhelmed at his son’s achievement, Subba Rao, Abhyas’s father said,
We have worked very hard for our son’s studies. My daily income is 500 rupees and within that income we had to manage everything.
