Bilaspur, May 17 : It is often said: "Where there's a will, there's a way". The saying has been proved this time by a 25-year-old Ashish Singh of Chattisgarh man who has passed the State Public Service Commission (PSC) exams despite his visual impairment.

Ashish lost sight in both the eyes in childhood when he was a standard four student. Despite many efforts by his family his eyesight could not be restored.

Ashish Singh, the younger of the two sons of Prahlad Singh Thakur was raised under his grandmother's care. She always believed in him and often said he would become a District Collector one day.

"Apart from studies, Ashish was also active in sports and extra curricular activities. We always had faith that one day he would definitely make a mark in his life. The credit for his success in Chhattisgarh's State Public Service Commission goes to his dedication, devotion, and hard work," said Ashish's father Prahlad.

Ashish likes listening to music and enjoys playing chess. And, he expresses his indebtedness to friend Alok Bhople for giving him the moral and mental support.

"We have been together for the last 18 years; besides my education Alok has helped me in day-to-day life. I can call him my true companion or "life partner", as he has remained a sweet shadow for me," said Ashish.

Bhople used to read out passages from the text books while Ashish listened patiently as he prepared for the State Public Service Commission exams, a relatively tough examination for State administrative posts.

"Alongside obtaining a university degree in Bachelors of Arts, Ashish's interest in administrative services strengthened. He started preparing for the PSC examinations while continuing with his college studies. Watching his dedication, I always believed he would succeed," said Alok Bhople.
