Meet Srikanth Bolla, He was born #blind.
He cleared the Andhra Pradesh class X board exam with over 90% marks. But the board said he could only take Arts subjects after that. He was denied admission to the science stream in class XI because of his disability.
Having been denied the opportunity, He decided to fight for it. He sued the govt and fought for 6 months. In the end, He got a government order that said I could take the science subjects but at his ‘own risk’. He worked hard and managed to secure 98 percent in the XII board exams.
Then he applied for #IIT and other good engineering colleges but did not get any hall ticket in India. He then applied to universities in USA and got into the top four. Then he went on to become the first international blind student to be admitted to the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He then came back to India to bring change here.
He founded Bollant Industries. Today, it’s annual turnover is more than 80 cr rupees. He didn’t become a burden to anyone but he funded about 3000 students in attaining free education and provided livelihood to hundreds of people with disabilities through his company.
