My story is about struggle, love and pain. My name is Subin K.K. I am from Pavaratty, Thrissur. I have a small and lovely family with my father, mother and an elder sister who got married. My father was a labourer, a coconut tree climber by profession. My mother who is very innocent was not willing to go for any work outside. She couldn’t even travel without a companion. My parents were highly supportive to me. My brother-in-law was also very friendly.
I had completed my degree, but the result was disappointing. I failed in the exams. This brought a lot of sorrow to my home. My parents supported me, but it was me who was very much disappointed and sad. I felt that I have lost the last chance to get a good job. My sister’s marriage had brought financial burden in the family. This forced me to go for some work. So I joined for painting work.
I had a love affair from my plus two days. When my parents came to know about it they together decided to propose her and make an engagement. Thus we went to her house. But her parents rejected our proposal. They said that I have no permanent earning and they are not interested to marry her daughter to a labourer. I and my parents felt very bad and sad. But my girl was ready to wait for me until I manage to get a good job.
In the mean time my mother came to know about the DDU-GKY project through the Kudumbashree personals. She forced me to enquire about it. Thus I met Shafeeq Sir, block co-ordinator. He motivated me so much. Later we met Linesh Sir, Centre Head, Mega Industries, Kunnamkulam. He encouraged me to join the course and I joined for the trade Sales person (Retail).
The classes were beyond words. It was a new experience for me. Teachers were very friendly. Linesh Sir (Retail), Raji Miss (English and Soft skill), Sukesh Sir (Computer) were our teachers.
At the end of our training programme we were presented for various interviews. I was selected by Trichur Fashion Jewellers Trivandrum as salesman trainee with a salary of Rs.8500. My parents were not willing to send me in a far away place. I was totally confused so I made them interact with my teachers. I had the confidence that they can demolish my parents’ fears. Luckily my parents gave me the permission to go, hence I joined on 1 April 2016 for my new job.
It was a risky job, but I was given training to handle difficult situations. I got a good amount of incentive. After one year I got an offer from abroad as salesman trainee so I discontinued my job. Now my marriage is fixed with my girl and I am going to abroad on January 12th. It is all because of DDU-GKY project. Thank you very much. My heartfelt gratitude to all my teachers and the persons who are related to DDU-GKY project. Thank you all.
