Ranchi, Oct. 6: A brilliant student of ISM-Dhanbad, Nishant Singh could not live to become an engineer. But after his death, he is helping many needy and meritorious students build their career and live their dreams.
The family of the 21-year-old, who died in a bike accident in Dhanbad on September 16 this year, has decided to start scholarships in his name at JVM-Shyamali and ISM-Dhanbad, where Nishant was a fourth-year BTech (petroleum engineering) student.
“We want Nishant to be an inspiration for those who have high ambitions and want to make a mark in the world by dint of hard work. Also, this way we may see Nishant in every child we award scholarship to. We are in talks with the two institutes,” said his sister Manisha, who is settled in Bangalore.
The criteria for scholarships and other conditions will be declared on Nishant’s birthday, which is on January 1.
Nishant, along with classmate Abhishek Kumar Sudhanshu (22), were riding a bike on that fateful day when a truck hit them on NH-2, about 18km from Dhanbad district headquarters. He was declared brought dead at hospital while Abhishek is still undergoing treatment.
