“You only understand the pain of snakebite
When you are stuck by it”
Though a very old saying but it stands true for almost all the aspects of our life. We cannot understand the intensity of pain unless we have walked on the same path. The same is the case when it comes to this custom inspector residing in Kolkata.

He is originally from Uttar Pradesh but came to Kolkata when his father Jaishankar Tripathi migrated to West Bengal. The only reason for the shift of his farmer father was to give a better educational platform to Akash. He ran a rented shop in Kolkata and made sure that his children get a proper education.
Akash was always good in studies and after his school, he always made sure to help his father at the shop. However, there was one big obstacle in the path of this young boy. It was money.
Despite trying, it was really hard for Akash’s father to come to up with a necessary amount that would help him in continuing his studies. Maybe this young talent would have been lost in the darkness of poverty until people extended their helping hand.
Many times in his life he came across nice people who helped in paying his fees that helped him in continuing his studies. Now, he is just keeping the cycle of goodness alive by giving free tuitions.
In one batch he teaches around 150 students. He helps them in understanding distinctive aspects related with the world of competitive examinations.
