Success has no shortcuts. Success does not discriminate on your gender of family background, you work for your goals and dreams, the more you work for it, the faster and bigger success you get. There is no overnight success, only hard work and perseverance.
"Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence." - Colin Powell
Success does not see if you are a son of a businessman or a ragpicker, if you work hard for dreams, it will come to you. The story of a ragpicker's son clearing AIIMS in the first attempt will inspire you.
Asharam Choudhary, 20, a resident of Vijayganj Mandi belongs to Dewas district who scored 707, All India rank and 141 ranks in the OBC category.
Asharam even secured 2,763 All India rank in the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) held in May this year. The 20-year-old aspired to become a doctor since he was just 10 years old. He told a leading daily, that once studying in class V, he visited a 'Jhola chaap' (an unqualified practitioner) with his father. The quack prescribed a couple of medicines and earned Rs 50 in no time.
Perhaps, Asharam had determination, patience and a good mentor who could help him realise his dreams. He received coaching and guidance from Dakshana Foundation, a coaching centre in Pune that trains students from -impoverished families from rural India for various engineering and medical courses.
He tells The Hindu, "The adversities have never deterred me from continuing my studies. This was my first attempt [in AIIMS entrance test] and my teachers at Navodaya Vidyalaya, especially Amit sir [his Biology teacher], guided me in clearing the exam."
We wish Asharam Choudhary congratulations for his achievement and inspiring hundreds of students. Stay tuned to Laughing Colours for inspirational news and stories.
