Yashodha Doddur

JNV Haveri
I'd like to become a Dakshana scholar and hopefully attend IIT
I am Yashodha, a hopeful student who came here for IIT-JEE coaching under Dakshana organization. Mt Father?s name is He manna and my mother is Shantavva. My father is illiterate and a daily wage labourer. At first I want to thank Dakshana for giving opportunity to students like me who cannot afford such coaching. Till 9th I didn?t have any idea about Dakshana. But at the end of the 10th std my teachers encouraged me in writing this exam. My parents had no knowledge about Navodaya and I came to Navodaya with a friend?s help and this is also same. My parents are trying very hard for me and my brother and sister. They don?t know about education, but they are trying hard for my education and they gave me till now all that I wished. When I wrote this Dakshana exam in 11th class I didn?t had any hope on coming here. Because at that time I was informed that this year the selection here among these 48.
Now, I feel happy to be here and at the same time hope for the IIT. I am sure if God wills along with my effort, your effort and teacher?s effort, I will get into IIT and I really try for it. My friends in Navodaya would tell me (in those days) that I am lucky because o got 1st ranf in 10th Board in school and was selected for Dakshana. But I say that as per my experience and observation, I have no luck but I think I got this because of my parents? luck. Really my parents have luck, I don?t. It is because of them and so I want to work for them and keep them happy.
When I heard, after coming here, that some people are serving the nation and the students by giving funds for organising this IIT coaching. I heartily felt the need to serve my nation to the best of my ability. My nation has given me much and I want to serve for it if not more, at least some thing. Dakshana is providing much more to us. I am sure that I and all my friends really use them properly and get a good result in IIT. With such good faculties and good supporters we can achieve our goal. We study hard and do smart study for achieving our goal. After hearing we felt that there is much to do and we can do as much as we want.
If everybody in India are like you (willing to serve India always) then India would be one of the topmost countries in the world. I sometimes think that if everybody suddenly leaves this corruption and learns humanity with no selfishness then I would imagine India to be the best. We are really inspired by all of you who have come from Dakshana till now. Along with this inspiration and motivation I got much more inspiration from my family background. My father is an optimistic person and I want to be so. You are giving much more to us than required. If we are not given vacation for 15 days it will be better.
Dakshana Foundation is doing a good job by helping talented people from poor families. It is the best organization in India. I want to serve for it after I get a career. There are many hopes and beliefs in me to get into IIT. I try as much as I can to make use of this coaching.
My hearty thanks to Dakshana Foundation for giving me this opportunity and for other students like me. I thank Navodaya Vidyalaya too for bringing me here.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my ideas and feelings.
