Initially, a school dropout, he had to take up farming after his father’s death. Officially, he was seventh pass but he somehow managed all his day to day chores in personal and professional life.
However, his life changed when his five daughters made him realise the worth of education and inspired him to continue, explaining to him the fact that education has no age limit.
Abiding by their call, Meena on Tuesday took his first exam of BA final in political science stream in Udaipur from the Vardhman Mahaveer Open University.
Speaking to IANS, he said, “I had to drop out from school after Class 7 as my father passed away and there were many challenges in the family. I got into farming to earn livelihood for my family.
“When I saw, it was not earning me significant returns, I went to Udaipur and started working in supplying labour to private factories. Then I entered politics and there was no looking back,” he says.
