Indra Lohar is our daughter. A girl belonging to a nomadic tribe of Garia Lohar in Kathumar tehsil in Alwar (Rajasthan) has scored 83.22% in Class XII science this year. With almost no resources, Indra has proved to the world that luxury isn’t necessary for educational merit.
With limited old books, Indra remembers studying under the streetlights late at night so as to avoid the honking of the vehicles passing by the circle where her family’s old shanty is located.
Thanks to TOI-Jaipur that covered Indra’s first story, she could open about her dream of becoming a doctor. This drew huge help from people in Jaipur who are now ready to sponsor her education and other living expenses for higher studies. We’re grateful.
Team JWB has taken charge of Indra by asking her to put our contact number in her phone’s speed-dial in case of any emergency while living in Jaipur. Till the time she is in the city preparing for the medical entrance exams, we vow to walk beside her and protect her from any bad. This page is for all those who want regular updates on Indra Lohar’s upcoming life and dreams.
In this new journey, we truly seek your support and encouragement.
