It is rightly said that there is no age barrier when one wants to put forward a lending hand.
Vaishnavi Kumari, is a student of PTJM Saraswati Vidya Mandir, Hasanpur Rajgir, who had given her board exams of class X, just last year. After her exams as she had enough free time in her hand she decided to do something useful. Thus when most of her friends were busy relaxing, she started teaching children from the economically weaker section of the society free of cost.
She gives education to students of her area from class 1 to 8 at her home. She passes her knowledge to people who can’t afford to pay teachers, tution classes but are keen to study and learn new things. Recently, Vidya Bharati Purv Chatra Portal team had interviewed her which has been given below:
Interviewer: Kindly tell us something about your academic background.
Vaishnavi : I am an student of PTJM Saraswati Vidya Mandir, Hasanpur Rajgir, and had given my board exams of class 10 last year. Presently I am studying in class 11.
Interviewer: Kindly tell us something about your family background.
Vaishnavi : I stay with my parents and brother in Dakshin Bihar at Navada, Hisua
Interviewer: What kind of social work are you associated with? Can you tell us more about them?
Vaishnavi : I have always been taught to think and serve others before oneself by my teachers and parents. Thus I have always strived to associate myself with whatever social work I can do, along with my own education. So one day I thought that since I was a bit free after my exams got over why not help other students who are passionate about their education but cannot afford tuition fees. Knowledge increases if you share.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something about your school or Vidya Bharati in general?
Vaishnavi: As I have mentioned earlier, it was my school that taught and inspired me to serve my society and my country. It helped me to give a new depth to my life, for which I am very thankful to all my teachers.
The lessons that I had learned as a child have helped me to guide me in life. I hope that even in the future I can stay true to my path and continue to serve my country, friends, underprivileged and many more in whichever way I can.
