September 1st, 2015
Meet Sagar Ashokrao Bhagat (Right Side)
Qualification: BE (Computer Science & Engg.)
Previous Job: Security Guard at Woodland Heights, Chandivali-Andheri East
On 24th August, we posted a #MyStory submitted by one of our community members. The Story was about a boy named Sagar Ashokrao Bhagat,who was working as a security guard. Sagar was looking for a job suiting to his educational qualification. He has a BE degree in computer engineering.Bhagat took up work as a security guard two months back after failing to find engineering jobs.
- The conversation between Sagar and Sreejesh :
“While leaving for office, I noticed a young security chap on duty at the society gate, quietly reading a book kept in between his society vehicle entry register. It was something different for a security guard so I stopped and asked, “what are you reading?” “Java programming!” he replied in a humble tone.
It was a shock for me. “I have a BE degree and I stay with my Mausi. I am looking out for a suitable job and to keep things going I have taken up as a security guard!” he continued. “Sagar you inspired me today!!” came out of my mouth.”
We are glad to inform you that he has got several job offers. The story was originally posted by Sreejesh Krishnan on his facebook profile, who lives in the same building where Sagar was working as a security guard.
Meet Balinder Singh, The SSE aspirant who works as an ATM security guard. (Left Side)
- The conversation between Balinder and Harsh :
“Today while coming back from a party I suddenly realised that tomorrow is Rakshabandhan and in the same reference I looked at my wallet and found it little short for tomorrow since I am blessed with so many sisters for that auspicious day. I decided to go to my local ATM branch to withdraw some money but what I found when I reached there was so motivational that I decided to share it with you all. I saw this young fellow must be in early 20, Balinder Singh from Fatehabad, a guard at ICICI ATM branch sec-11 Panchkula with some books and was studying under street light. At once I thought it might be some comic or masala book he must have been enjoying to kill the time but after looking closely I realised that it was not. Unable to hold my curiosity I asked him ‘Bhaiya kya parh rahe ho’ at which with a big smile on his face he said ‘mein SSE k entrance ki taiyari kar raha hun’ to which I again asked him why he is studying under street light and not inside ATM equipped with AC and good light to which he humbly replied that after 12 midnight they closed AC and so he has to sit outside but which is absolutely fine for him.
We often blame our failures to the tough times we go through in our lives without realizing that failures are our own creation.The above quoted is a perfect example that success is not any 1 legacy nor the fate instead its kind of a 1 man standing match outcome in which opponent against you is your own hardships in your life.
I don’t really want anybody to go to this guy and help him financially because that might deviate him from has goal but what I would like to appeal is if anyone has some good books or can help him with his studies do help him and also if you can share this so that this can reach to more people and he can get best possible help in terms of achieving his goal because I really believe that he is truly a deserving candidate.”
