“Where there is a will, there is a way”- this proverb is a fitting example for the achievement of Ashok Kumar Muduli, a student of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS), who recently cleared the prestigious Odisha Civil Service Examination 2015, conducted by the Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC).
Ashok was born in a predominately tribal backward region village named Raisingh of Koraput district to Bibhisana Muduli and Malati Muduli. His father is a daily wage labourer and one of his siblings is afflicted with polio.
Ashok took admission in KISS in 2008. After completing BCA from KIIT University, he joined TCS through campus recruitment. His younger brother Prakash is now studying in KISS in Class 7.
His strong will power and determination to fulfill his ambition defeated all hurdles including poor financial condition of his family. His hard work and proper guidance of teachers of KISS brought him success, Ashok revealed.
Dr. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KISS & KIIT said, many students of the Institute have achieved success in various national-level competitive examinations due to healthy educational ambience and proper guidance of teachers.
Bisides Ashok, Pratyusha Mohapatra and Mousumi Mishra of KIIT have also cleared the Odisha Civil service Examination. Mousmi is placed at rank 143, while Pratyusha in rank 223.
Dr. Samanta congratulated Ashok, Pratyusha and Mousumi for their success.
