Success is not a destination, but the road that you’re on. Being successful means that you’re working hard and walking towards your destination. You can only live your dream by working hard towards it. Such is a story of Jodharam, resident of Dadavas, Barmer who succeeded in NEET UG 2019 examination.
Seeing his financial condition, initially, Jodharam made his mind to become a labourer. He was all set to go to Mumbai, but his teachers motivated him for the NEET exam. After giving the exam four times, he finally achieved success in the fifth attempt. Jodharam secured AIR-3886 and 1209 Rank in OBC category with support of ALLEN Career Institute.
Jodharam is a resident of Gudamalani, a town and Tehsil within the Barmer district. There are about 400 houses in the village of Dadavas. He is the first in his village to become a doctor. Jodharaam said that most of the youth in his village and the surrounding areas migrate to other states to work as a labourer after class 10th. This is due to lack of awareness.
After completing MBBS, he wants to help the talented students of his village and support them in their studies.
Parents are NREGA Worker
Jodharam’s family is financially weak. They have about 6 bigha of the land but due to drought, there is not enough harvest. There is cumin or millet cultivation with which the family needs are fulfilled.
Jodharam has two sisters and one elder brother. Brother was good in studies but due to weak financial conditions, he could not study beyond Class 8th. Father Narigaram and mother Sugani Devi are uneducated and work as NREGA labourers. Their house is not well constructed.
Jodharam studied in a government school and secured 64 per cent in Class 10th. Seeing the financial condition he decided to work as a labourer in Mumbai. But his uncle supported him and helped him to study up to Class 12th.
From failure to success
Jodharam worked hard and prepared for the exam but did not succeed. He did not lose hope and achieved success in the fifth attempt. After Class 12th, Jodharam went to Jodhpur and prepared for the exam, but did not succeed, his rank was 1.5 lac. After this, he prepared for the exam by staying at home. This time he secured 35000 rank. In the third year, his rank was 17500 and in the fourth year, his rank was about 12000.
Seeing his strong determination, his uncle supported him to study at ALLEN Career Institute. Where he got a scholarship on the basis of his talent and financial condition.
“These students are Jewels in rags. The aim of Allen Career Institute is to provide the opportunity to each and every child of the country. They are the future of our nation and our goal is to provide them with the facilities, which they are deprived off” says Sh. Naveen Maheshwari, Director of ALLEN Career Institute.
