‘If the seeds of sanskar bloom in your childhood, then the future ahead becomes automatic’ - Amit Shukla (Vidya Bharati Alumni)
Hailing from Bhadohi area of Uttar Pradesh, Vidya Bharati alumni Sri Amit Shukla is a nationalist at heart who has spent most of his life serving in different governmental departments and finally joining the police force in Uttar Pradesh. He is a passionate social worker and has associated himself with several social projects. Recently he shared his experiences with Vidya Bharati via a short interview.
Mr. Shukla is an alumni of Shaheed Naresh Vidya Mandir, Khamaria Bhadoh (2004 batch), where he had studied till class 10 before shifting to Ram Sajivan Lal Inter College, Khamaria, Bhadohi to complete his schooling. In 2012 he passed his B. Tech degree in CSE from United College of Engineering and Research, Greater Noida.
From his childhood Mr. Shukla had only one aim, that is to serve his country, through whatever work he took up. From 2012, he started preparing for the UPSC examination and continued to attempt to clear it for the next three years without success. It was during this time that he became heavily involved with social work and from 2013 to 2017 he got associated with an organisation named ‘Sankalp Sansthan’. Over there he worked on several projects, but his main focus was to guide students who were preparing for competitive examinations, many of whom now successfully hold governmental positions in state and central level.
During this period he was also associated with ‘Navjyoti India Foundation’ (established by Kiran Bedi), where he worked as Volunteer Teacher and counselor. He taught science and mathematics to children of financially weak families residing in Jhuggi Hut Colony of Bawana, Delhi.
In the year 2015, Mr. Shukla, joined Delhi Government as a Vocational Instructor (IT). He imparted IT related knowledge to children of classes 9 to 12 in a government school of Delhi for 2 years. He has fond memories of those years as he thoroughly loved his work and his students are still in touch with him.
In 2017, Mr. Shukla joined the Department of Handicrafts under the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, as an IT professional and was posted in the regional office located in Lucknow. He worked there for one year and then subsequently, worked at Nehru Yuva Kendra, Kaushambi from October 2018 to June 2019 under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. Over there Mr. Shukla was responsible for guiding and training youths in different forms of sports.
Since July 2019, Mr. Shukla has been training to become a police officer in Armed Police Training College, Sitapur and joined the battalion in June 2020. He is presently working as Platoon Commander (Sub Inspector Rank), in Uttar Pradesh Police.
Speaking about the impact that his school has had on his life, Mr. Shukla stated that since he was a student, his school was the main force behind developing his intense passion towards social service and love for his nation. All throughout his life he has strived to help the people around him, and hopes that now that he has joined the police force, he will be able to serve and protect his country in the future as well.
Mr.Shukla carries a deep love and respect for his teachers and is still in touch with many of them.
Before ending the conversation, Mr. Shukla wished success to all Vidya Bharati schools and hoped that the institution of Vidya Bharati would grow from strength to strength, so that more students can get the opportunity to grow to their full potential.
