My struggle for an education


Education plays an important role in changing the life of an individual. It helps to bring moral, social and economic development of the society. Happiness and prosperity of nation can only be brought by education as it
empowers minds of people that will help them to think positively and constructively and for the betterment of people of whole nation.

Life gives so many challenges to human being from cradle to grave as it has to pass through obstacles but facing challenge with verve is a biggest challenge. It can help a human being to remove from all turmoils and loopholes . Education is the only guide to face and dilute every kind of challenge with ease and yearns a human being to Iive a successful life.

Education is not about doing a degree it is all about how you settle yourself as a human being without avarice because society can rejoice with goodness and righteous of every human being. It can become easily free from any misery, violent act ,botheration, chaotic situation, vandalism and other abnormalities when

Everyone deserves to be educated and in modern era desire knocks everyone to have educational thirst even if it looks distressed and lacks supportive conditions. I also had a great desire to achieve high educational goals and in my childhood days i evidently got my inspiration from my teachers and highly qualified persons and during school days i was only thinking how can i make my dream fulfilled and blithesome but only going through my mind how to reach it.

I remembered only that i was on fire constantly with one ambition of achieving high educational fields and this thought was with me day and night. I had started to focus completely on my studies but in a wild goose chase way. Looking aweary and lack of proper educational family back ground put some kind of barrier on my way. I hold my nerves, toiled and put all my efforts to achieve my long and bright educational career. Allah’ s support, nice friendship environment and duas of parents i have removed from captivity and became able to follow my ambition with the realization that i would probably never left myself alone and Alhamdulilah got regular successes.

The day when i started my journey to my educational career was quite childish ,I was no way how to get basic tips of learning from my teacher and stumbled oftentimes. Started to develop a peer group with other students and enjoyed the company mixed with some callous approach of friends at times. From my beginning i was able to understand skillful teaching of teachers and what they actually want from student’s side is all seen and involved myself thoroughly in my preschooling times.

I passed my matriculation from Roup Reshi Islamia High school Kuchmullah and i had a great craving for writing from my childhood.I drafted many topics on different subject matter and didn’t actually share with friends and fellows but I used to concentrate all interest upon my studies. Then i went to Srinagar for my UG degree this move has really boosted my confidence for securing more educational degrees.

In the fall of 2006, I was determined to go for higher education and got admission in Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu. There I completed my PG as well as M.Phil Degree in Botany. During my stay at University i got the definite idea of which direction in have to take myself even it would cost me enough to cover my whole story but still my boosting power and passion of learning more and more didn’t give me any sign of negation. I did not find anyone to sympathize me thoroughly to settle my ambition. I consoled and consolidated myself to go for PhD and I ranked top in entrance test but one thing troubled me severely and gave me a grave fear that I found my home side lackadaisical to assist me financially. At any rate, I got only a half-hearted consent from my guide to continue for PhD that was not proved strong enough thus dreaming big went all in vain.

With my fewer degrees i found myself to earn something in a small private school then working in a Higher Secondary at Srinagar has helped me to economise some money and accordingly had been consumed on my house and the remainder of the family. Some friends and one or two relatives helped me all that what I could do but ofcourse that was not a great deal for me where i did earn much, most of it went in the direction of paying the household expenses.

From 2010 my fate has started to shine a bit brighter when fortuitously a teacher,Mr. Shakeel Ahmad Bhat, of a private school, GOUSIA INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION BATAGUND met me and offered to become partner of this school and i got big admiration in and around and made thorough deliberations over it with my soul and heart. This has worked nicely and i got big opportunity to work for the service of human kind when i started to teach students at my own school along with my two partners Mr. Abdul Ahad Mujahid and Mr. Molvi Irshad Ahmad. They has really inspired me and stubbornly i refused to change my plan despite attempts have been made to revoke my decision.

Then I got big a opportunity to adapt myself to earn while learning and refocused on my educational career again and completed my second PG and M.phil in Sociology. Working at my owned school has given life in my dead soul and created every kind of opportunity to achieve my long pending goals e,g PhD. Being an administrator of the school specifically i started to focus on my teaching line and for making my teaching skillful than before i completed my B.Ed and M.Ed. These two degrees have helped me enough to inspire the students during teaching and motivated me more and more to become a successful teacher in the eyes of students.

I contributed myself in different educational fields and wrote down number of articles to highlight the effective ways of teaching and remedial of boring teaching. I have worked with various news organizations like Rising Kashmir, brighter Kashmir, Kashmir reader and Kashmir horizon as writer and Columnist to highlight the pitilessness of people of Kashmir, tried my best to aware the people about their rights and enduring them to dare any penury condition with courage and strength.

This sort of writing has inspirited me and developed a vision of doing research in different educational fields and published number of papers in national and international journals. More so, this has given me a sense of recognizing right from wrong , at the ground level trying to prove truth can never be buried and it’s comeliness can’t be uprooted.

In the spirit of teaching i also got a chance to work as a counselor at Govt degree college Tral where i counsel the students with full spirit and in something great and innovative way. I always indubitably give them an opportunity to negotiate their dreams, enlight them with new means of achieving successes.

In teaching i behave like a friend, kindhearted and motivational guide besides i always instruct and motivate the students to accomplish all big achievements. So i love my profession very much and trying hard in bridging up students with a good future with honesty and dedication.

In life I have seen many storms and most storms have caught me by surprise. To achieve long educational career i learnt very quickly by showing patience and determination to make ambition fulfilled. In life don’t wait for action to happen and make it happen with hope and determination.

Finally may Allah reward me a fruitful success in hereafter along with parents, relatives and friends and also open an eye to remove us from all agonizing and trifling acts of this mortal world. Ameen!
