Recently Mr. Nitin Kumar, an alumnus from Kurukshetra, Haryana shared his experiences with Vidya Bharati alumni portal team via a interview, whose excerpt has been mentioned below:
Interviewer : Mr. Kumar can you kindly give a brief background of your academic and professional journey so far?
Mr. Kumar : I am an alumnus of SMB Gita Sr Sec School Kurukshetra and passed my 12th examination in 1992. I did my graduation from University College (1995 batch) and Masters in Business Management from Kurukshetra University.
Presently I am working as Sr Manager in Maruti Suzuki at Delhi.
Interviewer : Are you associated with any kind of social work? If yes, please tell us more.
Mr. Kumar : Like most of other Vidya Bharati alumni, being associated with social work is a part of my life. For approximately 10 years, since my school days I have related to social service. Presently I support a charitable school at a small village Chhapna in Bulandshahr District of UP.
I am also passionate about environmental protection and support tree plantation drives, Specially fruit trees. I try and impart the values that I have learnt at my school to my 10 year son and feel extremely proud to see the same enthusiasm for our environment in him as he often helps me during tree plantation. Moreover my whole family makes it a point to provide daily food and water to birds as well.
Interviewer : Did Vidya Bharati have any impact upon your life so far?
Mr. Kumar : Since my early years I was encouraged by my school teachers to support others who are in need in every possible way. They made me realize it is the thought that is important, no matter how big or small the activity is. I have carried this lesson throughout my life.
Interviewer : Would you like to share any message with the students?
Mr. Kumar : I request all the students to stand together and to take small initiatives to support those who are less fortunate than you. It might be anything like giving them free educational materials like books or stationary, or helping them with studies etc. You can also help in tree plantations and taking care of them. The possibilities are limitless. Take the first step and do whatever satisfies you, without thinking about what others will say about you.
Interviewer : Are you in touch with your school and your batchmates?
Mr. Kumar : I visit my school whenever I am visiting Kurukshetra. Also I attend the yearly reunions without fail. We have made a group consisting of 40 to 50 ex students and regularly share information on social issues and social work done by our friends.
Vidya Bharati Purv Chatra Parishad thanks Mr. Nitin Kumar for taking out time and sharing his views with the community.
