98 year old man gets postgraduate degree from Nalanda Open University
Where there is a will there is always a way! 98 year old Raj Kumar Vaish is the shining example of this saying.
Raj Kumar Vaish has received his postgraduate degree at the 12th annual convocation of Nalanda Open University in Patna this week at the age of 98 years.
Vaish may be the oldest person to get a post graduate degree from this university as per reports.
Raj Kumar Vaish was awarded a master’s degree in economics by Meghalaya Governor Ganga Prasad at the convocation function of NOU, Patna.
His determination and focus gave such fruitful results.
Since he has difficulty in walking due to age, Vaish used a walker to go up to the stage and received his degree.
His son is a retired professor of National Institute of Technology (NIT) and felt proud when Vaish received the degree on stage.
