Among them is Ananth G, a student of Alva’s PU College, Moodbidri, Dakshina Kannada district. He has secured first rank in medical/dental, BSc (Agriculture), BVSc entrance tests, third rank in Indian System of Medicine (ISM) and Homeopathy and sixth rank in B-Pharma/Pharma-D entrance tests.

With an array of options to choose from, this achiever aspires to be a doctor. “I want to serve the people. So I am choosing the noble profession of medicine. I want to pursue my studies in Bangalore Medical College. In fact, I was totally disconnected from TV and mobile for the last two years,” Alva’s Education Foundation Chairman Dr M Mohan Alva has announced a cash prize of Rs five lakh to Ananth.
