Mr.SarathBabu is a resident of Madipakkam area in Chennai and he stressed up many times in his speech that his Mother was his Inspiration and the sacrifices she made only turned up his life. He shared the struggles and hurdles he has undergone in paying fees and starving for food. This hunger fire has kindled the thirst for knowledge too and the fruit of which he got admission in BITS (Pilani) and also become an Alumni of IIM (Ahmedabad). The students were awestruck to hear the determination and self- confidence and the hard strive he had to do well in his studies.
