2016 Vahani Scholar

”Vahani has been an unexpected but incredible and path breaking experience of my life. I am deeply honoured and humbled to be part of this wonderful family. For me Vahani is life. It did not only provide financial support to achieve my dream but also a family, a group of friends to whom I can approach anywhere, anytime for any help I need and highly experienced mentors who are selflessly always there for us. I cannot express in words my gratitude for this fascinating and incredible life. Coming from a poor family in rural India, getting a higher education was something that I had previously only dreamt about.

Indeed, every life has difficulties and for me my education was the biggest difficulty and matter of concern. However, apart from this worry what I had was the drive and ambition. A dream of being successful and bringing change for my community. And deep down inside I always knew that god has surely kept something reserved for me which would be an elevator towards my success. And that amazing gift was Vahani, an incredible opportunity to realizes my treasured dream. No words could possibly explain how happy I was when I was informed that I had been chosen and will be sponsored by Vahani, to receive this scholarship.

Currently I’m perusing B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Jamia Millia Islamia University, New Delhi. After graduation I aspire to join Indian Engineering Services as according to me, looking at the current circumstances of the country and the condition of the society, in order to bring the real change, you have to be the part of the system.

You have to be the part of authority. And as an individual, I believe bureaucracy is the best platform to bring about a change. I know I will definitely stay involved and continue to serve my community no matter where I am. I will work hard so that one day I can have the privilege of helping students further their education in the same way Vahani has helped me.

Rightly said by Steve jobs that “those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are usually the ones that do” Though, I might not be the world but Vahani has truly changed my life along with many others. I feel privileged to be a part of such an amazing family, filled with such amazing people.”
