In Basant Vihar in Kota, there is a slum over the drain made for the drainage of dirty water where there are about 200 houses. Out of these, one half-pucca house is of Vishal. He lives here with his parents and two siblings. The economic condition is quite deplorable and the family comes under the BPL category. There are broken doors that fall when a strong wind blows. If the tin-shade roof drips in the rain, then the biggest challenge is to save the books. Class Eight passes the father of Vishal named Buddhi Prakash roams from street to street and sells vegetables on a handcart. The illiterate mother, Shefali, was a domestic help for running the poor family. Despite adversaries, parents taught the son. Father Buddhi Prakash stated that ‘there are only books in the house in the name of luxury. Most of the house is dark but the small room outside has a zero-watt bulb in which all three brothers and sisters study.  All three children’s books are kept neatly in a wooden cupboard.

There is no TV in the name of convenience in the house. Similarly, sister Varsha studied with patience and got good marks in NEET-UG 2022. She wants to study BDS.  Younger brother Bipin is also studying in class 12th and has passed class 10th with 93 percent marks.

Similarly, elder daughter Varsha proved herself through self-study and is now preparing for admission in BDS.

It Would Not Have been Possible Without Kota

Father Buddhi Vishwas said that all this has been possible because of Kota. Here, children got an educational environment. Son Vishal was also inspired by the students around him becoming doctors and engineers. This was the reason that these children also dreamed of becoming engineers and doctors and got good environs at Allen. Now both are moving towards success. Kota is fulfilling the dreams of lakhs of students.

Students in the Street Here

Vishal told that whenever I heard and read about Kota, there was always talk of students preparing for medical and engineering entrance exams. Students were seen in the streets here which became my inspiration. I had thought then that I would study hard. After this, I was very much inspired by the movie 3 Idiots and decided to become an engineer. I told this to my parents too. My parents fully supported me and asked me to focus on my studies and they will take care of everything else. Papa goes to the big vegetable market at three o’clock in the morning and brings vegetables. Then place vegetables on the handcart and sell them by hawking them in the residential colonies. He earns Rs 300-400 a day. Mummy goes to three houses to wash the dishes and wipe the broom.

When Father’s Shoulder Got Dislocated

Vishal told that while selling vegetables on the handcart, their father was hit from behind by the motorcyclist. This hurt his shoulder. Due to the shoulder dislocation, the father could not sell vegetables on the cart for several months. During this period, it became more difficult to run the house. He had to stay at home for about 4 months. Then Mother ran to the house. After a few months, when I started working, my mother used to accompany me. Father used to make calls in the colonies for selling vegetables and mother would drive the handcart. After that, he could continue with the work of selling vegetables.

Gas Found in Ujjwala Yojana

Vishal said that first food was cooked on the stove in the house, then the Ujjwala scheme came. They applied for LPG connection in the scheme and through this, the gas stove came into the house. Now gas is available at a discounted rate but still, the family makes an effort to save every penny. For this, food is cooked on the stove for several days in a month. Gas is used for 10-15 days so it does not cost much.

Allen Support to Elder Sister

Son of Vegetable Vendor Vishal’s elder sister Varsha is preparing for the medical entrance exam. She had also taken admission in Allen in 2017-18, Allen encouraged her by giving a concession in the fee. Good marks also came but due to adverse family circumstances, she could not progress. After this Allen continued her studies from the study material itself and this year on the basis of category rank, admission in BDS is expected.

True Success

Naveen Maheshwari, Director, Allen said that this is a real success for us. Allen is always ready to encourage such children to study in adversity. Under the Allen Gudri ka Lal Scholarship, Vishal will be given a monthly scholarship during his graduation for the next four years.
