You all might be aware of the Indian Government initiative to empower the girl child, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao program, but how many families in India do not discriminate between a boy and a girl in real sense. I think, hardly 5-8 percent of Indian families have an equal approach to both sex and rest all discriminates at varying levels. I too faced this discrimination in my family itself; we were six members, my father, mother, three brothers, and I. Since my childhood days I was discouraged at every walk of life, from the school selection, clothes selection and even for food distribution among the siblings. I was admitted to a not so good school with a very nominal fee, while brothers went to top private schools. I was married at a very early age when I was in the 8th standard and didn’t even know how to write my name properly. My studies were stopped and I was forced to learn the housework, which I was not willing to do, and why I would, I was a child only and like any other children I too wanted fun and unconditional love from others.
After a couple of years one day I decided to run away from my home along with my friend to Ramkrishna ashram at Belur in West Bengal. I had heard a lot of this ashram from my father that they help poor people. At Belur math, they thought us as an orphan and admitted us to one school run by NGO. This NGO was doing social work to protect the girl child from health-related issues and to spread the awareness of health among the general public. I was admitted to class 10th and from there my studies got resumed and I was happy about that. In our school, one lady manager from NGO was regularly visiting to encourage us. I was amazed by her fluent English and her body language, and she became an ideal to me. I adored her and was fascinated by her persona, and wanted to become like her. One day I went to her and asked about her, she said- I am posted as a director of this NGO and also have good working exposure of government services also. This awakened curiosity in me and I asked her- Ma’am I too want to become like you, how can I reach to your post? She jokingly said- What, are you planning to capture my job and we both laughed. Then she said- Dear, just focus on your studies and rest all you will get in the due course automatically. She said that because of the MBA in healthcare degree and her dedication towards work she got everything in her life, and guided me to purse MBA In healthcare to become like her.
Then time passed on I got admission in an engineering college and started pursuing B.tech in Electrical engineering in Kolkatta. After completion of my graduation, I got one job in a software company and worked there for three years but the level of contentment was not full and something was missing. Then I recalled my old NGO’s days and became nostalgic about those happy and cherished moments; I remembered the persona of the director madam. Suddenly it sparked in me that why not to pursue an MBA in healthcare itself to get all those missing things in my life. I called that NGO and asked whereabouts of that director madam, they said that she got promoted to the vice-chairman post and they gave me her mobile number. I immediately dialled her. It really shocked me she still remembered me even after six years gap. I shared my planning regarding the MBA in healthcare and asked her the best college to take admission. Without any delay the first college name she said was Asia Pacific Institute of Management (AIM), New Delhi, she said to get into AIM to achieve all your aim.
I started enquiring about that college. The college has a good reputation of 24 long years of experience of successfully running the Management College and from last year this college has started MBA in healthcare program in collaboration with top Russian University, RUDN University, Moscow. There are many benefits of this program from AIM which my director madam had referred to are as follows
So this year I have taken admission in this highly reputed and well connected B-school for my MBA in healthcare program in Asia Pacific Institute of Management (AIM), New Delhi. I have paid my college fee from my saved money from my software earning. Faculties here are well learned and highly professional and so is the college infrastructure. I am fully satisfied by everything in the college. All of my current seniors have got paid summer internship program in top notch multinational companies like J&J, Fortis, Apollo, Himalaya, GSK and many more from the healthcare sector and as per them there are long list of companies waiting for them to hire in final year with the start of placement season.
This news of my success has changed the mindset of my parents also and they have now become a pro girl child and they are now praying God to make them grandfather of girl child only.
