When we run contests, we try and pick up as many calls as we can, yet many go unanswered, so for one to get through On Air, is a big deal.

One such lucky contest winner was Nikita Shukla, a third year law student at GLC, currently living at a hostel in South Mumbai This is her.

When Nikita came to claim her prize at , she requested to meet RJs (as listeners sometimes do) So I met her a few weeks ago.

Nikita is completely blind. Something her parents were not very excited about and wanted to get her married right after high school.

When Nikita refused and insisted on studying further, she was asked to leave the house. Father runs his own business btw.

Broke and without plan, Nikita bought a ticket to Mathura and was about to leave the city, when her friends convinced her to stay back.

Friends help Nikita secure a place in a hostel and continue studying to be a lawyer. But how much money can college students contribute?

Enough for her to pay her fee little by little. She's borrowed from friends, sometimes kind professors even. A few small scholarships.

But money was not enough to afford the luxury of three meals a day. For 3 years, Nikita has been surviving on only dinner. 20 a month.

Nikita didnt come to to tell me her story. She just came to collect a prize, but agreed to go on the record when i asked.

We raised enough to cover her tuition, hostel and canteen fee. My girl can eat three meals a day now. And become a kickass lawyer!
