new Delhi. Today on Labor Day, know the story of a laborer from Bihar who became a professor. Know how to overcome this difficult situation and achieve this milestone, know the words of Amrit Raj himself. ‘My father used to work as a laborer. The family’s financial condition was not good. I also used to work with them.
Success becomes an obstacle every time disease
My story of becoming a laborer to professor started in January 2017. When I entered the net for JRF, I was in the grip of terrible fever. There was a fever of 104 degrees. I could not even study. The result was that the first attempt failed, but did not lose courage.
Tried again in November 2017. This time too, he had dengue a week before the exam. The first night of the exam was a 104 degree fever. Did not sleep all night. Although given the exam, but this time also failed.
War from one life, professor’s dream on the other side
Encouraged as every time. Work continued and made a third attempt in June 2018. This time too life was ruined. Smallpox gripped before the exam. Failed again in the exam. Went to the hospital. There is no serious illness detected. I was completely broken. On one side was fighting the disease, on the other hand from JRF. Did not disappoint even after failing three times. Understood that life is another name for beauty. Troubles are the ones that can withstand them and are pursuing their dreams with positive thinking.
Who is amrit raj
‘My name is Amrit Raj. Born in Kishanpur, a small village in Jehanabad, Bihar. When I was born, there was no environment of writing in our village. Both parents worked as laborers. He did not even read himself, but he gave me plenty of opportunity to read and write. I studied class three in a government school in the village.
Stay in school
Seeing my inclination towards studies, then the maternal uncle took his city to Gunsa, because the atmosphere of studies there was good. There again, Mama got me enrolled in first grade again.
