There is no age limit for a study or knowledge, and must say very well said quote and a old man who absolutely define this line. Yes, a 97 year old man, who had graduated in 1938, has appeared in an exam for a post-graduate degree of Nalanda Open University.
And the inspiring man named Raj Kumar Vaishya wrote in English and used 23 sheets in his M.A. economics part one exam. He sat for three hours in the examination centre like the others, most of them younger than his grand-children, the official said.
Official added “Despite heat wave that forced people indoors, Vaishya surprised all of us including young examinees, when he appeared at examination centre,”.
Raj Kumar says “I have appeared in exam and now I am a step closer to fulfilling my dream,”
Born on April 1, 1920, in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly town, Vaishya retired in 1980 as a general manager in a private firm in Koderma (now in Jharkhand). He did his graduation from Agra University in 1938 and got a degree in law in 1940. He said he failed to study for a Master’s degree then due to increasing family responsibilities. And now all he want to complete his dream of education.
