“Like a dutiful son, I am now taking care of my parents and family”
Atul, a BA pass unemployed youth from Hardoi District in Uttar Pradesh has tried his hands at various places. From farming, to running a shop and even investing a huge amount on a vocational course, nothing could ensure a regular income. In between he got married and had kids. That added to his woes, as he could not sustain the expenses of his family and even his parents had given up by then. “Mere mata pita pareshan ho gaye the. Mujhe koste rehte the ki khaali baitha rehta hai aur khata rehte hai. Tab maine socha ki kuch toh karna padega. (My parents were fed up of me. They would taunt me about sitting idle and feeding on the household’s expense. That’s when I though that I will have to make something out of my life.)” He had almost made up his mind to venture to the city along with his friends to look for a job when he got to know about a security guard training course run by a DDU-GKY training partner in Hardoi. He instantly got enrolled and is now working with BCL Securities in New Delhi and earns Rs. 15,000/- per month with company provided accommodation.
