    yes sometimes ago i also felt that yes good education is beyond the reach of poor students because i have completed all my studies up to 12 in government schools & I am proud to be student from government schools & it is a such a big disaster that rich people make their students/children study in private schools but get their childs admitted in govt. colleges where only govt. schools should be admitted and the poor is left wandering is it what the society demands today especially in India where a man holding truth is subjected to harsh and cruel things this is indeed a very big irony

    It is true that majority of the talented students are unable to pursue their education due to poverty. The Government, Corporation, NGOs and many philantherapic organisations are lending their helping hand but those students are not aware of it. There should be a proper bridge to connect the two. The Students should find out resources they can avail by gathering informations related to it. The helping organisations should take steps to make sure that they cover majority of the poor talented students

    For really very talented students , the problem for fees is not that much as compared to academically mediocre students. For example, all the IITs are providing scholarship to the needy students joining them, The govt of Maharashtra is reimbursing the fees paid towards technical courses to the colleges directly for economically backward students, again any student who has scored more than 80% and are joining any college for the study of pure science like, Physics, chemistry, botany, zoology, Mathematics and statistics are given a scholarship of Rs.80000/- per year for next 5 years. So, as I told for talented students , good education

    i agree to some extent for the statement , but a no. of students still step backward in education due to their financial standards.even the govt tried to help them, they are still lack behind .
    eventhough every one is born with equal talent . some of them don't feel their responsibilities.
    even though reservations and scholarships help the poor , it couldn't reach to all.

    I think education loans and scholarships have made it easier for poor students to a certain extent.
