Berhampur: Ganjam Collector, Vijay Kulange was pleasantly surprised when he saw a COVID patient studying for his Chartered Accountants examination sitting on his hospital bed.

The officer was on a visit to MKCG Medical College Hospital in Berhampur. He clicked a photograph of the patient and shared it on Twitter. The photo shows the man with his books and calculator spread out on the hospital bed. Wearing a face mask and spectacles, he can be seen talking to three people standing next to him in PPE kits.

Kulange praised the patient’s dedication while sharing the picture on Twitter. “Success is not coincidence. You need dedication,” the IAS officer wrote.

“I visited Covid hospital and found this guy doing study of CA exam,” he said, adding, “Your dedication makes you forget your pain. After that success is only a formality.”

Although the picture has gone viral getting more than 10,000 ‘likes’ on the microblogging platform, there is a divided opinion. Some Twitter users praised his efforts, while others felt his bed could be given to a more needy person if he is ‘good enough to study.’
