The primary objective of both the state governments is to ensure backward and financially weak communities receive access to quality education at reputed international institutions. Through these schemes, the students can opt for higher studies in Russia, France, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Canada and Singapore.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
