Two office boys of an IT firm have proven that hard work and support from colleagues can help one rise above their adversities and achieve their dreams
Some may call it luck but for some others it is the sheer hard work that makes them rise from being a nobody to somebody.
The success stories of two office boys are proof of how hard work with a dose of luck help the determined achieving a higher station in life.
Till last month, Mallikarjun Pardish was an office boy in Real Page India, an IT company. But now he is a proud IT employee working with tech-grads in the same firm. Mallikarjun discontinued his higher studies due to a weak financial situation at home and begun his work as attender to contribute to the meager family chest.
“I worked as an office boy for five years and sometimes I used to do part-time jobs here and there. While I was working as an office boy, I also used to learn the basics of computer from the office staff. They were the ones who helped in achieving my dream to be an IT employee. Seeing my dedication and hard work, my company appointed me as Associate-I in the IT section,” beamed Mallikarjun.
“I have two children and I want them to be well educated. I am earning more now as compared to what I used to get before. In addition to working, I am also planning to complete my graduation and keep learning new things in my field so that I can grow professionally,” he adds.
Sandeep Kumar, who is also appointed as an IT Vendor in the same firm, is happy with his new job and new work profile.
“I discontinued my studies after Intermediate first year because of lack of finance in the family. As I was lowly educated, the only job I landed in was that of an office assistant. I have a family of five members and meeting everyone’s needs was becoming tougher by the day. But thanks to my new job, I am earning well as well as continuing my education. Recently I wrote my physics exam and hope to get through with good marks. I am greatly indebted to my colleagues who taught me computers and other technology related subjects. I am happy that I am no more referred to as an office boy,” says a proud Sandeep.
