GANDERBAL: A specially abled student from Ganderbal District of Central Kashmir qualified the recent NET and JRF despite the hardships and physical hindrances, making the inspiration for the others to achieve the goal despite the unfavorable situations in life. The story is about a student from central Kashmir Ganderbal district .The said student requested for anonymity to disclose his name.

While narrating the hardships of his life he talk with Kashmir News Bureau team:  "Life has been a very tough lesson for every one of us, it teach us how to struggle, how to survive and finally how to achieve. It comes with happiness and sorrow. Someone thanks for the former while other curses himself for the latter. But life carries both for every creature on the earth,at the right time and right place."

"Yesterday it was my turn, when I heard about my NET Result. I was happy to see that I have qualified for JRF (junior research fellow). What is worth mentioning here is that my total score was 63.33 which was exactly the cut-off for JRF in OM category and that made me more delighted as I belongs to a PC (physically challenged) student category. I started counting myself in UNRESERVED quota. But behind this achievement lies a lot of sacrifices and hardships which I am accustomed of irrespective of any task. I studied hard for my exams. It was my 3rd attempt and I always believed that I have to make it this time at any cost. My preparation span extended upto 2 and a half months during this period I was consistent  and committed towards my goal.

I also qualified JKSET in my first attempt in 2018, for which I received appreciation from my family and friends. I completed my higher education from Nigeen higher secondary school. Later I joined Gandhi Memorial College from where I completed my B.A. In 2014 I got selected for M.A political science in Kashmir University."

"My family has been very supportive to me throughout my life. My brother acted as the foundational stone of my academic career, he was always there with a helping hand. Almost for every exam he was there to pick and drop me. I remember the time when i was in  class 12th attending my annual examination, it was a math paper and my brother was busy at home with some paper work.

As he saw me getting ready for exams he skipped his work and got ready to take me for exams. In between the paper time  the invigilator saw a man in park with some papers in hand which was the pending work my brother left at home, apprehending that he might be translating someone inside the examination hall he went towards him to inquire about his presence in park. When my brother narrated him the whole story of his presence in the park. The invigilator was very happy and came back to me and said "is that person sitting in park your brother" I said yes.He then replied "You are very lucky to have brother like him you should be thankful to him through all your life"

"My friends always lend their shoulders whenever I need them. I spent time with them and we always have a lot of fun. I never lose any opportunity to join their company. They too had a big contribution towards my academic life. They were always available to facilitate books and notes for me.

My educational life was very tough, right from schooling days I had to struggle a lot for what was an ordinary task for other students. I was not so regular to school, college or university owing to lack of physical access but I managed my self-studies at home. University classes were of regular mode and those years were crucial for me. But it is rightly said that 'When you go in search of honey you must expect to be stung by bees' .I am a great believer of time and most importantly what it taught me is that, I have to do it of my own, for there would not always be others to help me out."

"At last my simple message for viewers is never lose hope,life brings laurels to everyone. I strongly believe in the dictum that 'success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life. It’s about what you inspire others to do.”
