2006-Harish Chandra Das

Harish Chandra Das, orphan by death of his mother and lived on the begging of his mentally retarded father, is orthopaedically handicapped himself. This poor and destitute boy from Sandangar village of Bolangir District in Orissa (India) was given shelter by an Orphanage, Gram Mangal Pathagar which saw him through his Higher Secondary Education. Digjyoti came to his aid in 2006 to defray the expenses for his further study. Harish has successfully undergone the Teachers Training Course and hoping to get a suitable job in near future.
