The story of the struggles of Ekansh Saxena, the topper of B.Tech IT in MMMUT, is heart-wrenching. It was not all that easy for Ekansh, who got the second highest package (Rs 42 lakh) in the placements for session 2022-23. With a determination to eradicate his weakest pulse (father’s blindness) he threw himself into it and the result is visible. Ekansh Saxena, a resident of Puranpur in Pilibhit district, was in high school in the year 2016-17 when his father developed glaucoma. Due to this he lost his eyesight. Despite adverse circumstances, Ekansh had secured 10 CGPA in high school. His mother was a teacher in a private school. When I got admission in MMMUT in the year 2019, I did not even have money to pay the fees. His maternal uncle deposited the fees.
Getting the scholarship brought some relief. In the second year of B.Tech, along with his studies, he started doing an online job in ‘Coding Ninjas’ for Rs 20,000 per month. Life was just getting back on track when last year his father suffered a paralysis attack on his right side. The mother left her job to take care of her son’s future and her husband. During this time, Ekansh got an internship in Expedia at Rs 60 thousand per month. Considering his efficiency and dedication towards work, Expedia itself offered him a package of Rs 42 lakh.
