Bangalore: Both these youngsters from Bangalore want to work for the nation.

While one dreams of joining the Armed Forces, the other does not want to work abroad. Both have been awarded gold medals by Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU).

P. Ravindra, who secured five gold medals, was at a loss for words when The Hindu contacted him on Tuesday evening.

“I heard the news just a while ago when my professor and principal called to congratulate me. I am elated,” he said. He also said that it had been his dream to join the Armed Forces.

R. Dileep, who secured four gold medals said: “I do not see the need to go abroad to study further. I want to study here and work for my nation,” he added.
