Chenchu man shows the importance of education

Dasari Anjaiah, a 40-year old man from Chenchugudem in Chandampet mandal, has dared to sell the source of his family income, a milch-buffalo, to help his elder daughter Anitha (19) pursue her dream of becoming a teacher.

Incidentally, Anitha is the first Chenchu tribal girl to complete Intermediate education from Nalgonda district. After completing her Intermediate in 2013-14, the girl failed to clear the entrance test to get admission to Teacher Training Course (TTC), completion of which would make her eligible for Second Grade Teacher (SGT) post.

Finding that his daughter was passionate to pursue the TTC at any cost, Anjaiah approached a private college in Devarakonda and admitted Anitha in the management quota by selling his only milch-buffalo for Rs. 20,000 and borrowing some more money from his relative to pay the first year fees.
