HAVERI: Lakshmi Shivasali, the daughter of a paan shop owner has secured 1,811 all-India rank in the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) this year and is set to secure a seat in a government medical college. She had qualified last year too, at rank 55,212, but had to opt out being unable to afford a private college education.
“The journey to becoming a doctor will begin and all this has been made possible by the support of my father and mother. All my teachers also encouraged me a lot. I put tremendous effort into NEET this time, and took coaching in Bengaluru too,” said Lakshmi.

Lakshmi’s father Manjunath said, “My wife and I don’t have any educational background and from my small business, we cannot afford to pay the fees for a private college seat. But my daughter has achieved this as promised. We are really happy,” he said.
