Chauhan, a resident of Khandala Khushal village in MP’s Alirajpur district has six other siblings out of which only two have been able to continue their education. The rest had to give in to the financial constraints of the family.
Speaking to The Quint, Chauhan said that not all students are as privileged as she is.
“There is no real education going on in the colleges, there are no books to read from, and no playgrounds in the college. Many children are not able to study because we don’t have enough to afford education outside Jhabua,” she said.
