Don’t step back in your failures, failures increases sweetness of your success Updated On 2017-10-23


At the beginning, nothing seemedto be smooth in my life. There would be many situations in our life that we may feel like we are a useless fellow and helpless like a feather in the storm. Introducing myself, I am Prashobfrom Orumanayoor, Thrissur. I am the eldest son of my parents and I have one sister and two brothers. My father, Preman is a centring worker who was not able to go for his work because of his health issues. My family was a joined family. My mother, Sobhana was not much courageous to go for any work outside. I belong to an SC family.

My studies were broken due to the financial problems of my family. My sister got married at the time when I had just completed my plus two. My sister’s marriage brought a huge financial burden upon our family. My dreams about studies stopped with that. I started with aluminium fabrication works in order to help my father. My earnings were very small but it was a relief for my father. But I was not happy enough. I alwaysdreamt about getting a good job and a good earnings.

Meanwhile, my mother started with Mahathma Gandhi National Employment programme though she was afraid to go for any job. She was an active member of Kudumbasree also. This wasthe turning point of my life. At that time I was very much fed up with the dust which was produced at my work site. My family was on huge financial crisis. My brothers’ education was also about to stop.

My mother came to know about DDU-GKY project through the Kudumbasree personals. She was very much confused about the course. She often thought that it would be a fake one. Our Kudumbasree chairperson was very familiar with our family situations. She led us to ShafeeqSir, Chavakkad Block Co-ordinator. He was such a good person that he behaved as he knew us for years. He answered to my mother who has doubts about the course. Her main doubt was that, is it sure to get a job after the studies.

Shafeeq Sir suggested us Mega Industries Kunnamkulam. My mother and I went to the centre. It was another world which we met there. Centre head Linesh Sir convinced my mother. We decided to go with them. Classes were very useful. Our teachers had very thorough knowledge about their subjects and they were friendly too. There was, Linesh Sir for Retail sales, Sukesh Sir for computer and Miss Rajifor English and soft skills. Those awesome days were too short to end.

Our training centre Mega Industries locates at Kunnamkulam. I joined there for the trade sales person (retail). It was a three months NCVT certified course. Our batch started on 15/01/2016 and ended on 29/03/2016

Before ending my studies I appeared for an interview at Mega Industries Thrissur for Trichur fashion Jewellers Trivandrum. We met Don Sir, HR manager of Trichur Fashion Jewellers Trivandrum. I was selected over the first interview. It was a festival day for my family andmy parents cried out of joy.

I joined for my first job at Trichur Fashion Jewellers Trivandrum on 04/01/2016. My starting salary was Rs.8000. But with incentive and all now I am receiving Rs.12000. Our family’s debt has been reduced. My both brothers are studying very well. Another happy thing to share with you is, that I have told you earlier that my family is a joined family; I gave some financial help for my cousin’s marriage. Now before taking any decision in my family my parents takes my opinion too. I feel very proud. My parents do the same about me. Now I have been working here for two years.

Even though my studies were broken I got a white collar job. It is all because of DDU-GKY programme and Kudumbasree personals. I have no other enough way to show my extreme gratitude to my teachers and Kudumbasree personals. Thank you all. Thank you very much.
