I'd like to become a Dakshana scholar and hopefully attend IIT
I'd like to become a Dakshana scholar and hopefully attend IIT because my ambition has been to become an IIT?ian since I was a child. Everyone has to choose their goal. If we are unable to choose our goal then there is no meaning in our life. Life is a glorious gift and it should not go to waste. We should not keep it in the folding of a paper. When we remove one by one the folding we get new experiences. I want to make a proper use of my life by getting admission into the IITs. Then I will try my best to become an engineer and work for others. There is a proverb ?service to human being is service to God.? I would like to burn myself for others. I will work hard to become a good citizen and then a good engineer. My parents have a dream that one day their son will become a good officer and serve his nation, and that is my guiding force. For that alone I would like to attend IIT. My background is from a poor family. I got admission in Navodaya Vidyalaya and it became a turning point in my life. When I came in sixth class I didn?t know about competitive exams. I got inspiration from Navodaya and that is why I see Navadayas as temples of knowledge, motivation and everything else. I have gotten a chance to attend IIT coaching classes because I took admission here. I used an excellent opportunity which was given by Dakshana foundation. I think Dakshana is a very good foundation which has started such coaching classes for poverty stricken students. By using this opportunity every talented student can prove himself as a good engineer and fulfill his dream. As we know opportunity never comes twice, so we have to make a proper use of it and change it into gold. This is a real golden opportunity for me and I have to make it brighter. I would like to promise my parents that I will work hard and I will try to get admission into the IIT. It is said that India is a poor country or rich people. I think we have the potential in our young generation and I am part of that. It is today?s youth?s duty to change the saying to India is a rich country of rich people. Everyone gets an opportunity which can amend our whole life and it is dependent on us how to make a proper use of that opportunity. Because of the above reasons, I would like to become a Dakshana scholar and hopefully attend IIT. I promise all Indians that I will sacrifice my whole life to serve the nation. I am very much thankful to Dakshana.
