But, being from the village, she had to face some problems as there was no internet connectivity in her village. Instead, the 19-year-old had to travel a kilometre every day in the lockdown to avail the internet for her studies.
But, she would be really proud of her hardships as she has now secured a seat in a Government medical college in Akola by scoring high marks in the NEET examinations. However, paying the college fees was still a big issue for Dipti and this very the Master Blaster came to her rescue.

As things started to look difficult, timely help from the former opening batsman helped Dipti in getting closer to her dream. In association with the Seva Sahyog Foundation (SSF), Tendulkar ensured the 19-year-old is pursuing the doctor’s degree and thereby achieving the dream of becoming the first doctor from her village.
“My lifelong dream of becoming a doctor is now moving forward and becoming a reality at Government medical college in Akola. I promise I will work hard and one day I will be able to help other brilliant students of fulfilling their dreams just as Sachin Tendulkar Foundation helped me.”
