"I credit my success to my parents. It might be a small thing for students like me, but for my parents it is a great achievement. After all the hard work they have done for us, they deserve it," Mohan said.
Mohan who wants to become a scientist like his idol, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam thanked his teachers for teaching him well.

He wants to pursue his research work in physics and will opt for top Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) based on his preference and other conditions.
Subba Rao, Mohan's father, said, "We have worked very hard for our son's studies. My daily income is 500 rupees and within that income we had to manage everything.
Delighted by his son's achievements, Rao said he wants to see him become a scientist someday.
