    Jaipur: Born to a poor, uneducated farmer Rohit Garhwal never let his roots stifle his dreams. Bred on a healthy dose of inspirational stories and harsh reality, Garhwal, on Wednesday, pulled off a feat most urban students deem impossible — the 22-year-old cleared the Common Admission Test (CAT) with 99.64 percentile.

    jaipurmanResults of the exam for the country's top business schools were declared on Wednesday. At least three dozen students from Jaipur cracked the test with more than 99 percentile.

    Akhil K Balachandran was the top-scorer from Jaipur with 99.99 percentile.

    Born in Guman ka Bas village of Sikar district, Garhwal received call letters from India's premier management institutes, including IIM-Ahmedabad, IIM-Calcutta, IIM-Lucknow and IIM-Lucknow (ABM).

    Garhwal said that there is no substitute for grit and hard work. "My father is an uneducated man but he wanted me to study well," he said, adding his father, Kishan Kumar Garhwal, a farmer in Guman ka Bas village, is his source of inspiration.

    "When I was a child, my father told me stories of great men like Lal Bahadur Shastri and Gopal Krishna Gokhale. He tough me the importance of education by narrating tales of Gokhale, who studied under street lamps at night," Garhwal said.
