Cattle rearer to scientist in Germany, inspiring story of Odisha’s Seshadev Kisan



You must have heard this adage: “If you set a dream, you will find a way to achieve it.” This saying perfectly suits Seshadev Kisan, also known as Sesha, who overcame all obstacles to become a chemical scientist and made Odisha proud. From herding cattle to landing a position at the prestigious Georg-August University in Göttingen, Germany, his rags-to-riches journey is truly inspiring.

But what’s even more motivating about her story is that despite getting all the comforts of life thanks to the opportunity to settle in Germany, live a lavish lifestyle and find love in the European country, Sesha is now back in Odisha just because he wants to do something for his homeland

Once upon a time he struggled hard to get a handful of rice, but now he owns a house worth thousands of rupees in his birthplace Sambalpur. Sesha is also ready to get married very soon. In a candid conversation with OTV, Sesha talks about her future plans….

Hailing from the Natideula village of Sambalpur, Sesha lost her mother when she was just one year old and her father passed away when she was 18.

Even after losing his parents, he did not stop dreaming big and giving up his study. In addition to herding cattle, he began to work as a salaryman during the holidays in order to take care of his family and defray his education expenses.

After completing his education at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, he was selected at the National Institute of Education and Scientific Research (NISER). Later, he did research with Professor Sven Schneider at the Georg-August University Faculty of Sciences (GAUSS).

Seshadev, who was congratulated by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik before leaving for Germany in 2018, laments that although he now has all the comforts of life, he does not have his parents by his side to enjoy them.

After his return from Germany, he is currently teaching 170 village children to become self-sufficient.

“I have adopted 170 children. Apart from me, some teachers have been hired to teach them. All I want them to be self-sufficient. I donated my old house to them. The children are taught there.”

He went on to add, “Before I left for Germany four years ago, I told the media that I would come back and that I would love to do something important for my homeland Odisha. And I kept my words. I have long plans. I will reveal it at the right time. It will be a surprise for everyone.”
