A vegetable seller, Raisa Ansari, is a Ph.D. holder from Devi Ahilya University in Indore but she was not able to find a job.
Prof. Ashutosh Mishra, former in-charge Vice-Chancellor and Head of the School of Physics at Devi Ahilya University, said that he remembered her. Her Ph. D. was not released, and she had also complained of not being able to give the viva for two years despite the submission of her thesis in 2004. The professor also said that after witnessing this trouble, other professors and his colleagues reached the department itself and got her Ph. D. in 2011. Raisa's mother, Ayesha Ansari, said that her all four children are well educated.
