Tuition centre gave me boost for Education
I Mariswamy, am the eldest son of my parents Mr. Monesh and Mr. Gangamma residing at Kalangeera Village, Manvi taluka of Raichur district, Karnataka. I am the only fortunate child in my family who could go to school because all my three younger brothers are taken along with my parents for daily wage earning. When I was studying in 7th standard immediately after the class I used to go for collecting firewood, water, for cooking food etc. I never used to get time for study. Very often in my free time I used to visit tuition centre in our village after completing my daily work in the house, where I developed friendship with few children who are part of tuition centre. They used to visit my house regularly and plead my parents, but my parents did not heed to their appeal.
