Inspiring Success Story of A Railway Porter

Stacks of books are routine for civil services aspirants, but for Sreenath K, the mobile phone, and earphones are his lifeline.

He prepared for the exam with the help of technology. Making use of the free Wi-Fi at the Railway Station, Sreenath downloaded the study material.

He studied not only in his free time but also while carrying heavy luggage on his shoulders, listens to his digital coursework, his teachers speaking into his earpieces.

Throughout his work, he listened to course material and solved problems from test papers to prepare for the Kerala Public Service Commission examination.
