In a classic case of the underdog striking it big, Raju and Brijesh Saroj, christened “the Pratapgarh brothers” by the media, hailing from a poor dalit family, have shown that will power and a focused mind can surmount the greatest odds. They are all set to enrol in an IIT after having secured the 167th and 410th ranks, respectively, in the joint entrance exam. The ministry of human resources development did well by acknowledging the boys’ feat and waiving their fees. This shows that merit shines through, reservations or not.
