Thanks to Pandit, his son Deependra Kumar was able to show up for the JEE (Main) test carried out on Thursday at his designated center, the Suvidha Kendra Center, across from the Hazaribag police lines.
Pandit said: “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there is no public transport between Bihar and Jharkhand. Also, I was unable to afford a private taxi as it was charged Rs 30,000 for a round trip. “The financial bottlenecks and the unavailability of public transport did not dampen Pandit’s spirit, who plans to graduate Deependra as an engineer. The father-son duo made their way to Pandit’s motorcycle on August 31.
“It was a great relief to me when my son sat for his exam. Now we will return home and eagerly wait for the results to be announced, ”said Pandit before leaving for Betiah on Friday.
