“It’s like a Dussehra gift for me. When I started working as a coolie, I would earn around Rs 400-450 a day, but since the luggage is easier to carry now a days, it has reduced my income to Rs 200-250 daily. I approached the railway ministry to absorb me in Group D job and I also met Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on October 7,  when she had come at a railway station to flag off Shatabdi Express but failed to get any assurance.”

Mone, also known as Mohit is a 25-year-old Coolie with a BTech degree. He completed his BTech in electronics and communication stream in 2015 as a regular student at a private engineering college located 60 km away in Faridkot, Punjab.

To support his family, Mone started working as a coolie. His father was a peon in irrigation department in Punjab. He has four sisters and two brothers to look after. He felt the need to support his family and started working as a coolie in 2012 at the age of 21. He continued his studies, and while doing BTech, he met Niveta. They liked each other and then tied a nuptial knot. Niveta is now pursuing MTech.

Times of India reported a coverage on Mone, and after it was published, his destiny took another turn. The vice chancellor Prof. Mohan Pal Singh Ishar of Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (MRSPTU) on Monday offered help to the couple. Mone is now being offered a job at a private engineering college. His wife Niveta Lal has also assured a job at after she completes her MTech in electronics and communication next year.

“After reading about Mone, The chairman of Baba Farid Institute of Engineering and Technology Gurmeet Singh Dhaliwal contacted me to offer the job to Mone Lal. The couple came to my office on Monday, and we assured the couple that her wife would also be considered for a job at the university after she completes her MTech,” said Professor Ishar, as reported by Times of India

Mone will be given a job as per his capability. He will be able to lead the life of decency.


The Logical Indian wishes Mohit and his wife all the best. Sadly, there are many “Mohit” in this country who despite being educated run for small errands due to lack of opportunities.
