Stay Hopeful, Stay Unstoppable!

A grandfather who did not allow me to go to school forced my father to re-marry, and a step-mother who forced me to do all the household chores, at the tender age of 8! And all this in spite of moving to Delhi for better livelihood prospects. A fearsome condition, I wanted to shout loud at everything that stopped me from going to the school.

But then, this was not all. Today, I am able to finally stay happily together with my mother and two brothers, albeit in a small house. My mother works day in and day out to make our lives better, and it is her sacrifices that motivated me to dream of becoming a teacher one fine day, inspiring people to become better human beings.

However, to me, studying in a government school still meant lack of opportunity to study in some better school, it meant that because all my mother could earn was spent in keeping our shelter and getting us food, we were studying in poorly maintained government schools, which is not easy. Toilets so small, they either always stink too badly or remain water-clogged in rainy seasons, and don’t have water for the rest of the times. Safe drinking water seemed a fantasy and each day to school was a struggle for basic amenities. Many times it influenced me to not to go to the school, but my mother always said that if you face the fear with courage, the world will come around to tap your back and will support you.
I believe that it was a similarly optimistic attitude of our school principal that attracted the good from around us, and so Lo and behold! Yuva identified our school and undertook to transform it. What I now love about my school is not just that how beautifully it has changed with fresh new wall colors and educational paintings hanging on those walls and in our classrooms, but most importantly, how clean it has become with spacious new toilets, as big as my room back home. And, that I don’t need to worry about drinking water anymore as it is purified. Now, I feel safe at my school.

I question myself whom to thank for this new gift, my teachers, parents or Yuva Unstoppable? Then I feel it’s the Almighty who wants to see me happy after a struggling childho
