Kerala “Coolie” cracks Kerala Public Service Exams using free wifi on Railway station.


Need inspiration? nothing can inspire you better than this story of a coolie who cleared the Kerala Public Service Commission (KPSC) by using the free wifi available at the railway station he worked.

Shrinath K, 27-year-old from Idukki district was a coolie at Kerala’s Ernakulam Junction Railway station in Kerala. He downloaded the study material & used to listen to it while he worked for 24 hours.

The BJP government launched the Digital India Campaign in 2015 because of which free WIFIs were made available on the railway station with the help of Google & RailTel at all the big stations across the country. This was the miracle that helped Shrinath change his life. Srinath previously had given 2 attempts but the father of 1 daughter this time managed to score an impressive 83 Percent in the examination.

Shrinath told the media that  “The government may or may not call. Given how competition is so high these days, the vacancies might get filled up with people who scored even higher,” . He will now start preparing for Railway Group D examination for this year. With parents, his wife and child dependent on him, Shrinath is only hoping to land a job that can assure him a monthly salary.
