Chitradurga: Rightly relating to the proverb “Where there's a will, there's a way”, the daughter of a vegetable vendor has topped the state in the Department of Aeronautical Engineering examinations conducted by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi.
Lalitha R Avali is the one who has achieved this milestone in the aero-science engineering section.
Her parents, K Rajendra and R Chitra have three daughters and they would like all three of them to get quality education and excel in life.
Lalitha had cleared the entrance test at Yelahanka’s East West College of Engineering, Department of Aeronautical Engineering and cleared all the exams for three years with the first rank. Due to this achievement, the college administration decided to give her free hostel facility. Currently, she has made her parents and Karnataka proud by ranking first in the state in the aero-science section.
Expressing their happiness, Lalitha's parents said, “For livelihood purposes, we have been selling vegetables from the past 40 years. We did not have an opportunity to get educated. Because of the poverty that we faced during our time, we could only manage to study till class one. We had decided that our children should not face the same phase, and should rather get a quality education. Now, our daughter has fulfilled our dreams and we are proud of her. Our efforts have paid off.”
Lalitha said, “My parents are my backbone. Only because of their constant support, I could achieve such a milestone. I’m very happy for what I have achieved. This is a small gift to my parents.”
She will be felicitated in the VTU campus on its 19th Foundation Day Ceremony to be held on February 8.
