Inspiring: Poor, Dalit family creates record for most Doctorates!Bhagwandas Ahirwar started working in 1973; at that time, he could barely make ends meet. He earned just Rs 165/- per month. Unfortunately there has not been much improvement in his financial condition over the years. But this did not prevent his five kids to acquire more than a decent education. All five children of Mr. Ahirwar have Doctorate degrees, earning the Dalit family the national record of having maximum members with PhD.
The Limca Book of Records has recognised the family's feat when it handed over a certificate on 21st August, 2016 attesting the family's India record of a single family with so many PhD degree holders. Mr. Ahirwar has retired as an Assistant Clerk of a school. He resides in Jhansi and presently teaches the street-children free of cost.
I salute Mr. Ahirwar and his wife for this great achievement of their children.
