Coolie qualified Civil Services - An inspiration

This coolie cracked Civil Services with just a phone, earphones and free Wi-Fi….

Being surrounded by books is routine for civil services aspirants, but for a for a coolie who cleared the Civil Services written test of the Kerala Public Service Commission, the preparation only consisted of his mobile phone equipped with the free Wi-Fi services available at Kerala's Ernakulam railway station, and a pair of earphones.

It's true: Sreenath K is a high-school pass out porter hailing from Munnar, the nearest major railway station from which is Ernakulam, who cracked the KPSC exam.


  • Sreenath hails from Munnar, a town in the Western Ghats mountain range
  • Sreenath has been earning his livelihood carrying heavy luggage at Ernakulam Junction in Kerala for the past five years
  • Unlike his colleagues, the bright coolie deftly balances luggage on his shoulders and listens to his digital coursework at the same time to prepare for the Civil Services-- his teachers speaking to him through the earphones
  • If he qualifies for KPSC after interview, the porter is likely to be a village field assistant under the land revenue department

I will keep studying while I work as a coolie because I have the pressure of running my house... I will keep studying and appearing for exams. If I appear for enough exams, I am bound to get a good job.

Sreenath K

A high school pass-out, the sharp coolie Sreenath has been taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi Internet service available at Ernakulam station to learn and mostly, to study for his Civil Services exam.

I have appeared thrice for the exam and this is the first time I used the Wi-Fi at the station. What I do is put on my earphones and listen to the study material as I carry the luggage or solve questionnaires in my mind. This way I can study while I work. I revise all my work at night when I get free time

- said the keen porter Sreenath

  • He said the free Wi-Fi service at the station opened up opportunities for him he never thought were available in the first place!
  • Several practice question papers, downloadable at a speed of 20-40 mbps, were amongst other things assisted the intuitive coolie to prepare for the Civil Services

Along with that, he got easy access to online examination forms, and above everything else, he saved money on books…
