Recently Akkili Suresh attended the Joint Administrative Test for MSc(P.G) entrance examination, conducted by IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) of India. This is considered one of the most prestigious institutes within India.
On his entrance exam, Akkili Suresh achieved 61st Ranking from all tests conducted countrywide, thus making him eligible to join the MSc (P.G) Mathematics courses within IIT college.
Although Akkili Suresh had passed these extremely competitive exams, he was still required to pay the college tuition, equivalent to $2,500.
Because his family was poor and could not afford this tuition, his father came to Sri Kaleshwar and asked for his help to join the prestigious IIT. Sri Kaleshwar immediately accepted, and offered to donate the entire fee for his courses during his 2 years at the institute.
Akkili Suresh deeply thanked Sri Kaleshwar for making his dream come true and vowed never to forget his kind generosity.
