Odisha Chief Minister met Shesha Kishan who battled all odds in life to become a scientist

Bhubaneswar:9/9/18: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today met chemical scientist Shesha Kishan who battled all odds in life to become a scientist.

Taking to Twitter the CM wrote, “Meeting young Shesha Kishan who battled all odds in life to become a scientist was inspiring. Hailing from a tribal family in #Odisha, he topped NISER by his sheer grit and determination. Biju Babu would have been proud of him.”

The young scientist’s journey from grazing cattle in a village in Sambalpur to obtaining a position in the prestigious Georg-August-Universität Göttingen of Gottingen, Germany, is an inspiration for all.

Born in a humble agricultural family, Shesha Kishan suffered deep personal tragedy as he lost his mother at a tender age and father in his teens.

Despite immense struggles and suffering, he did not lose sight of his dreams and worked hard to achieve them. After he completed his school education at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, he was selected at the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) where he excelled.

As a promising chemical scientist he published many research papers in prestigious international journals. His work was recognised at the global level and he has now been admitted to the prestigious University of Gottingen, Germany as Research Associate.
