"To complete these courses, either you have to be academically brilliant or to be smart enough, everyone cannot do this," he explained.
"People have to pay for these courses as well, but I was lucky, that I did not pay any cost," Vikraman said.
If it would have not been free of cost, it was sure that I would have not completed these courses because we can't afford that many fees," he added.
