A very touching story. Boy from poor family gets place to study in France. Straight As JPA scholar Sugan Selvarajah didnt have money to buy initial clothes etc. Didnt give up but went to Malacca govt CM office to ask help, and succeeded!
And read about how he improved his English. From old newspaper collected by his mom for recycling! Puts most of us to shame for the excuses we give. Really touching to read about it.
Kudos to the parent for their responsibility and state govt for support.
But PSD (JPA) should have been proactive to help such cases in 1st place. Must improve the system.
Good luck to Sugan!
