In our country, there are countless individuals who were compelled to leave their studies midway due to familial responsibilities. These responsibilities sometimes included financial obligations or caring for elder members of the family. However, once these responsibilities are fulfilled, many of them revisit their educational aspirations at a later stage in life. They prove that education is a lifelong journey and there is no set age to start your life again. Here is a brilliant example.
A woman named Nidhi Agarwal, who works as a Strategy Lead, shared the story of an autorickshaw driver in Bengaluru who showed remarkable resilience and embraced school books again.
Despite having completed his class-10 exams in 1985, he decided to give pre-university course (PUC) exams a shot. And he did!
He is currently writing his PU exams and has already finished writing the English exam. He has two kids, one in class 3 and another in class 6, and he walks through life with a smile on his face!
“Introducing Baskar ji, my auto companion today. He faced his English paper today, he is writing PUC exams this year after cleaning 10th in 1985. Father of two, with kids in 3rd and 6th grade. His enduring smile was truly motivating!” Nidhi wrote on social media.
