To start off, born on 11 November 1993 in a middle class family with an elder brother and a younger sister, dad working as a tempo driver and mom is homemaker.
To describe am a cordial person with good leadership quality, value tradition and have strong faith in God. And have been living on high dreams to be executed and a few things I always keep in mind is “Everything happens for a good reason”.
Friends and family would describe family oriented boy and as someone who is trustworthy, emotional, organized, and traditional. Those who know would also describe me as someone who serves as a mediator when arguments and conflicts arise. When it comes to work and working with others, I provide stability and can maintain organization. I have the ability to handle details and to work hard.
We used to live in Vikhroli a small town in Mumbai suburbs and studied in a highly reputed school “Shree Siddhi Vinayagar English High School.” As my parents always used to say, “You don’t worry about the expenses for your education we are there for you, only the thing you all should do is study well and eradicate all our financial problems and make us feel proud.” I used to study well but even though used to get less marks in exams. It was a situation when I was in 5th std. got failed in math’s which was like a major attack for me, but I managed to come out of that situation. However, one day I heard my mom talking to neighbor worried about me that I am not studying well, was worrying about my future, and always use to murmur that if the same happens in future what would be our condition and all. By hearing this and seeing mom’s sad face. I just started thinking about my dad’s pain in educating us and their expectation from us, which made me study well, and even results used to support me this time.
In addition, even I had interest in cricket, used to play very well friends used to appreciate me, which made me feel high and thought of making career in it. I informed dad about it and asked him to join me in cricket coaching but he ignored by thinking as I am just talking as a child and he did not care about it. Suddenly, there came a new rule of government of not using a transport vehicle, which is older than 16 years in Mumbai. If anyone wants to continue with that vehicle it should be fitted with CNG which cost more than a lakh of rupee to replace diesel running machine with new CNG machine which was not affordable for us at that time. Due to which dad has to sell four wheeler tempos in scrap and buy a new tempo, but could buy only a 3-wheeler tempo of the money he could make in selling 4-wheeler in scrap.
This new rule has made us suffer a lot. Monthly income reduced and financial crunch of our family started, which made dad to change our schools as our school used to charge high fees which finds to be difficult for dad to pay. Therefore, we shifted our residency to Thane and joined a new school here named S.B.M Padwal Vidyalaya which is not a highly reputed school but good enough to complete our school era there in that school. Year by year our financial condition started coming at the track, which boosted my cricketing dreams and this time again I approached dad for the same and he made me join in cricket coaching class in central maidan, thane (W).
Under a reputed cricket coach in thane named, Sir Mr.Vijay Indap. I focused hard in my practice and at the same time used to manage my studies well.
Now my schooling life was on the verge of completion. Yes! I was in 10th and could not manage my studies and cricket properly so dad stopped me of practicing cricket. Even I want to score good in 10th std. I studied sincerely and was blessed with 73%. Parents were happy seeing results but I deserved more than that, according to the hard work and effort I put in. Everything was going on smoothly at the time the company where my dad used to do our transport business suffered a loss, which affected us too. This time I was matured enough to understand our family’s condition. I thought to support my dad and I started distributing newspapers in the morning. Until then, time for college admission came; I have no interest in becoming doctor or engineer. I opted for commerce stream and I got admission in V.K.Krishna Menon College. One of the strict colleges as I heard from my friends and no further information I had about the college. Anyways however, may be the college is I have to continue with it further as I have taken admission into it. In addition, after a month later I had many good friends with me who tops the lists is Sudesh Shetty, Ashish Sawant, Vanitha Konar, Niranjana Siddharthan. They were always motivating and good caretaker of me in college whom I will never forget in my life. Just like every college student, I too developed crush on a girl (not willing to name her) it was just an infatuation kind of thing not love and all. Later I came on to my track.
My dad’s business was turning out to be worse day by day. I just suggested dad to buy me a newspaper agency for me not a big agency just a small agency with 150 newspapers. Dad managed to buy it for me; I was a newspaper vendor now. I used to deliver newspapers on my own in the morning and then go for a computer class (MS-CIT) and directly to college. This routine followed until completion of 12th. I used to represent our college in college cricket team and it used to satisfy me my craze. I well balanced my cricket and studies. Got 69% in 12th and in vacations I got a call from my cricket coach to join his club free through selection. I got selected into his club and well trained in vacations – warm up exercises used to be very tough in which we have to run for more than 20 min. which also boosted my athletic skills.
I was pre planned to join the same college after 12th as I enjoyed a lot there and made me feel like my home but I do not want to do B.com just because my elder brother was doing the same. Other than B.Com, our college used to offer only one course for commerce stream students i.e. BMS (bachelor of management studies). I left cricket club, as I know there is a great competition in that game and to make a career in that field is very tough, so I gave up just representing my college as a craze. Started developing interest towards studies, as faculties I got was very friendly, motivating and supportive in nature.
Presently I am in 2nd year of the same college. A proud BMSite wants to be a successful business personality in life and surely will put in best to accomplish my dreams and ofcourse to make my parents proud!
“Life isn’t about finding; Life is about creating and will surely create it.!!!!!!!
