Decisions determine destiny -- how true these words are for Mrunal More and her family. Instead of giving in to pressure from relatives, Mrunal's father, a rickshaw driver, decided not to be an obstacle in helping her achieve her dream to become a doctor, but encouraged her to study further.
To which, she has validated with panache, by securing good scores in her exams. Last year, she secured admission at Sinhgad Dental College to pursue a bachelor's in Dental Surgery. A 10,000 INR scholarship every year from SIF helped her pave this path to Dental college. It has been an arduous journey for Mrunal. The family's stress on education is paying off. Mrunal's brother is studying to become an engineer.
