Ramesh Kumar Solanki

Ramesh Kumar Solanki

Ramesh Kumar Solanki�s father is a leather worker in Siwana village in Barmer, Rajasthan. Their combined family income is a meagre INR 4,000 per month. An affinity towards law seems to run in Ramesh�s genes, given that his elder brother too is already studying law at NUJS with the help of scholarships and bank loans to bear the burden of the high costs of a legal education from a national law school.

Ramesh completed his schooling from JNV Pachapadra with 78.8% score in CBSE exams. A young student with a keen desire for learning and razor-sharp intelligence, Ramesh�s will to pursue law rests on his ardent desire to make a difference through grass root-level law practice for the local community in his village. Ramesh is also one of the rare IDIA scholars to have tasted success more than once in the immensely competitive CLAT examination. Inspite of securing admission to RGNUL, Patiala in 2012, Ramesh could not take admission due to lack of funds and had to drop the idea of joining a national law school. Though disappointed at the loss of opportunity, he was not someone who could be discouraged to give up his fight. And fight he did! Since June 2012, Ramesh toiled each day to attempt CLAT and AILET again in 2013 and passed the AILET with flying colours, securing a rank of 32 and gaining admission at NLU-Delhi and also at NUJS through CLAT 2013. This twin success has not overwhelmed Ramesh, who thinks that these are merely stepping stones towards his goal of representing all those who lack the clout and power to take their battles to the mainstream.
