Don’t stop until you are proud Updated On 2018-01-22
Life goes on, whether we chose to move on or stay behind, locked in the past, thinking of what could’ve been. Myself Akhil Babu hailing from Thrissur. Life seems so nice to me at present. But it was not the case in the past. My father was a drunkard, who usually caused lots of trouble in the home. My mother and grandmother went for household works and my elder brother would go for stage decoration works.
I was not at good at my studies and I failed in my plus two examination. I was sure that I can’t become someone great in life. The truth is that I was not really serious about my life and career. After my plus two I started working in a fish market, then I moved to Malaysia in search of another job. After couples of months I returned back home and then got a job at Ernakulum in a sales shop with a salary of Rs 10,000.
Even though I had a job with a favorable salary, I wasn’t happy because my heart always reminded me that I could have got better life if I had studied well during my schoolings. All these regrets vanished off when I successfully completed my Retail (sales person) course of DDUGKY Project. We came to know about the course from Joseph Sir and Linesh Sir. Both of them gave us hopes for a better life and career if I successfully manage to complete the course.
I joined in the 7th batch of Mega Industries Thrissur. Classes were excellent, informative and motivational. Rejitha Miss (retail), Neenu Miss (IT) and Raji Miss (computer) were our teachers for the respective subjects. We were taken for interviews at the end of the course. And I was selected as the salesman trainee at Kalyan Silks, Kozhikode with a salary of Rs.8500.
I and my family was very happy getting this great opportunity. I was sure that this job would give me a better life and reputation even if I am not a graduate. Thanks to almighty for everything I received. Heartfelt gratitude to all my teachers and every personals behind DDUGKY Project. Special thanks to Joseph Sir and Linesh Sir for bringing me to this project.
