Dedication and true passion pay off in the end, no matter how challenging the whole situation was. A notable example of this is Merajuddin Khan a resident of Kashmir, who cleared his NEET UG through self-study. Merajuddin’s life hasn’t been easy and replete with struggles. Merajuddin Khan is the son of a Kashmiri street food seller. His father runs a barbeque shop and during rush hours when people flocked to this famous Tujae stall in Baramulla, Merajuddin used to help him also.
