PERAMBALUR: A boy, who ran away to Chennai to join as a helper in a mess after an unimpressive performance in the SSLC examination, was forced to join Class XII to finish as the second rank holder at the State-level in Accountancy and Auditing.

“I developed an aversion for studies after I scored only 272 marks in the SSLC. So, I ran away to Chennai and worked as a helper in a mess. But, my brother convinced me to continue my education,” said V Marudhupandian, the State second rank holder in Accountancy and Auditing.

Marudhupandian of Maulana Higher Secondary School  here scored a centum in the subject and got 1,025 marks securing 150 in Tamil, 118 in English, 157 in Commerce.

“I feel elated for securing State second rank in the subject I like the most. I dedicated this to my parents, brother and teachers,” said Marudhupandian, who wants to become an auditor.

School Correspondent Jabarullah Khan, Secretary Mubarak Ali and Head Master Annoor Batcha felicitated Marudhupandian.
