My Story: I Want To Read In An English Newspaper That A Roadside Bookseller’s Daughter Becomes A Chartered Accountant

The Logical Indian

August 10th, 2016

“I’ve been selling books here since last ten years with my husband. Unfortunately I didn’t get proper education due to family problems so I haven’t been to school, but my husband has studied till 10th grade. A decade ago we started this roadside bookstore where we provide books at the cheapest rates, most of our customers are students who have helped me in learning English. Everyday I try to learn new English words from the books, I get to learn so much from these books. Over the years I’ve been able to speak fluent English and that’s a Personal achievement for me. There have been people who have laughed at us saying those who aren’t educated are running a roadside bookstore, but such criticism has never affected us. We couldn’t obtain education but we made sure that our kids get proper education. Our son is in college and our daughter just cleared her 12th grade with 99 percentile and now she aspires to become a Chartered Accountant.

Any Message?

Few years later I hope to read in a newspaper that, A roadside bookseller’s daughter becomes a Chartered Accountant and made her parents proud”
