Name: Munna Ram
Father’s Name: Ram dhani Ram
Electrical Trainee
Manthan Jashpur Centre

Munna Ram was born in Depatoli a remote village in Jashpur district of Chhattisgarh. He has a younger brother and a younger sister who are still studying in school. Munna’s parents are very poor and don’t have proper house to stay. They live in a kutcha house and work as seasonal labourer in fields since they don’t have any land of their own. His mother too, collects wood and works in fields in order to run their family. This BPL family has seen days when they had to sleep empty stomach.

Seeing the plight of his parents, Munna dropped out from school at a very tender age. He decided to work as a labourer and support his family. He decided to work hard in order to change the standard of living of his family. He promised himself that he would educate his siblings with good education and make them successful in life unlike him. Even though the nearest school is eight kms away from home, he encourages his younger brother and sister to go to school daily and study well.

Since he had no specific job, Munna wandered along with his local friends and as we all know that “ An Empty brain is a devil house” they were indulged in all kinds of bad habits like alcoholism, smoking etc. His friends influenced him a lot.

At this point of time, MSK officials organized field mobilization program in Jashpur district. Munna learnt about this program and went for a counseling session. The MSK explained him the benefits of joining the short course. Munna was greatly relieved after the counseling session and thanked God for the opportunity to start a new and better life. He wanted to stay away from the old habits and also his old friends who wasted their lives by simply ruining their health and reputation in their village. His family too was very happy to know about the course. They happily sent him to enroll himself in the electrical training of the SGSY special project of the Govt. of India run by MGSSS in Jashpur town of Chhattisgarh.

Munna soon started attending the classes regularly. He was trained in the electrical field and the MPEP class. He preferred to be silent and shy in the initial stage as he belonged to a remote place unaware of the big wide world. He 24 always tried to dodge away in order to avoid questions from the trainers. However, his attitude changed after attending the MPEP classes. He soon began to ask questions to the trainers and also answered when the others remained silent. He was now confident and an inspiration to the other students.

As per the regular survey of MANTHAN, it was found out that he had attended all the classes without fail and his results showed that he had been brilliant among his fellow mates. This proved his commitment and dedication towards learning was true. Munna had been a cheerful student and a keen listener. He learnt from his mistakes and encouraged other class mates to work hard to be successful in life.

Today, Munna has completed his training from Manthan. His lifestyle is totally changed. He has become more serious and responsible towards life unlike before. He hates sitting idle at home and usually goes around in nearby towns doing small electric works.’’ He believes that experience will give him knowledge and knowledge would enhance his confidence level’’. He is determined to change the living condition of his family. He gives credit to Manthan for the complete turnover of his lifestyle. His siblings are now able to go to school by bus since he is able to pay the fare. Munna’s neighbors and friends are surprised by the sudden change in him and his family. His old habits have died and he respects his seniors.

Munna awaits his placement in a good company which will be done soon. His dreams have become bigger now. He has promised himself to save money to build a Puckka house and also support the studies of his siblings. Seeing his confidence level and responsible attitude his parents are overjoyed. They want him to settle down in a few years. He is ready to step into the big wide world to make a name of himself and earn respect in his society. In the mean time he is encouraging his fellow neighbors and counseling them to enroll themselves in Manthan’s training course. He feels that all his friends and the youth in his village should not waste their time take part in Manthan’s training course in order to have a better life and future.

Name: Karmu Ram Chouhan
Father’s Name: Ashat Ram Chouhan
Electrical trainee
Manthan, Pathalgaon Centre.

Karmu Ram Chouhan hails from Ruphdega, a small village 20 km away from Pathalghon. Apart from his parents, he has two elder sisters. Born in a BPL family, life had been difficult for him. His father being a seasonal farmer, made very less income and was hardly able to feed his family. Seeing the pathetic condition of the family, Karmu’ s sisters started doing odd jobs like housemaid and also as laborers in various construction sites. Soon Karmu’ s father became ill and bedridden. The family was shattered. A dejected Karmu had to drop out from school as he had no other option but to help his mom and sisters. Karmu was forced to take up the job as a laborer. The soft hands which once had books in them now carried bricks. Life was totally upside down for him. He and his sisters toiled hard to make ends meet. Having no family land, they were forced to work in fields belonging to neighbors.

Although he missed going to school, at this tender age, he had no time to even play or go around with his friends. Karmu’s parents were overburdened with the thought of getting their daughters married. Karmu was well aware of this. His situation had made him wiser and experienced at an early age.

Karmu was unable to share his problems with anybody. He believed that he was destined to live the same way and the situation of his family would remain the same. His heart melted and he was full of grief.

One day as he walked back home from work, he saw an unfamiliar person at his house. On meeting the person he came to know that the latter was as an official from Manthan and had been to their house on a awareness program.

The official counseled Karmu and explained him he could change his destiny soon. He gave him detailed information about the “placement linked training program” run by Manthan in Pathalgaon. Karmu was overwhelmed to hear about the program. The low financial condition of his family and his responsibility as a son had abstained him from studying further. His poor father could have never imagined sending him to a good school. Karmu took it as a second chance from God. He always wanted to move ahead in life. He was greatly attracted by the short duration of the course and also because it was free of cost. His sisters too encouraged him to join the Training program since it was closer to their village. They persuaded him to go ahead and stop worrying about the family for the meantime. The support from his sisters incited him to join the training program. After taking blessings from his old mother and sick dad, Karmu started a new journey of his life.

Karmu enrolled himself in the Electrical course of training program in Pathalgoan. He had a burden to learn and therefore never missed a single class. He remained calm and always concentrated on what was being taught in the class. Coming from a remote village, it made him difficult to mingle with the other students in the class. He was very shy to talk to his teachers too. Even when he knew the answer to question, he preferred to sit tight lipped in class. In the short span of time, Karmu was given proper training in electrical field. He was very disciplined and always paid full attention in the class. He made it a point to reach class before time and take advice from his teachers regarding matters concerning his studies. The MPEP classes played a vital role in his life. A complete transformation was visible in his personality. He was now confident and never ashamed to speak up in class. The once “back bencher” was now found sitting in the first row. He excelled in his class and was an inspiration to the others as well.

Soon Karmu completed his training. He came out with flying colors. He got placed instantly at a reputed company in Haryana and is paid on regular basis. Karmu’s sisters are glad that they sent him for the training program. Times have changed for the Chouhans. Karmu is now able send money to his family back in the village. His dad’s health has improved as they are able to treat him and buy medicines from the money which Karmu earns. Karmu is a no longer a boy, he is a chaged man now. He is capable of taking major decisions in life. He dreams of getting his sisters married in reputed families and also construct a better house for his parents. His reputation has increased among his villagers. He has become a living example to the poor and deprived souls in his village. His story is a motivation to the other students and staff in the Pathalgaon center.

Trilochan Dehri, Manthan Pathalgaon Centre

Name: Trilochan Dehri
Father’s Name: Ganesh Ram Dehari
Electrical Candidate
Manthan Pathalgaon Centre

Trilochan Dehri was born in Mudaghon, a small town in Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh. Hailing from a poor farmer’s family they belong to the BPL category. Trilochan had to drop out of school due to the low income of the father and being the only child of his parents he had no option but help his poor father in farming. Apart from lending his hand to his father, Trilochan worked as a laborer as well. His small and irregular income was insufficient to make any major change in their lifestyle.

In course time, he developed friendship with the local boys. On days when he had no work to do, he spent his time loitering around with them. On one such day, he happened to meet one of our MSK staff who was on field duty. MSK officials had gone to that village for a mobilization program. The MSK staff felt an inclination towards Trilochan when the former saw him sitting idle under a tree with a lost look on his face. He invited him to the camp and after formal introduction, motivated and counseled Trilochan to join the short term training program. The MSK staff’s words greatly motivated Trilochan. He felt an urge to join MANTHAN’s training program (under Swarana jayanti Gramin Swarozgar Yojna) immediately. He ran home and told his father about the placement linked skill development program. He explained to his parents that he would be placed in a reputed company after completion of his training. Being the only child, the parents were quite reluctant, however after the MSK staff visited the family, they happily agreed to send their ward for the training.

Trilochan soon joined the electrical batch of the Pathalgaon centre. He was always very curious to learn. However, his way of expressing was quite different. He was unable to ask questions since his classmates teased him quite often. This discouraged him a lot, but he was still bend on learning from his teachers. Manthan’s dedicated staff made it a point that they would change Trilochan’s personality entirely before completion of the training. They took special care and paid attention on him and soon changes could be seen in him. Trilochan now became the smartest student among his classmates. He was able to speak up and his voice had become audible too. His friends stopped calling him names and respected him as his grades had increased in class. He thanks his teachers for the complete makeover in his personality. He was always willing to come to the front and present whatever the teachers asked him to do as unlike in the initial stage.

Trilochan feels that, had he not been in the training today, he would be either loading trucks with sand or else cultivating land with his father. On reaching his village, the joy of his parents has no seen no bounds! They are pleased to see their son who is more serious towards life and confident in getting a good job now. They are waiting for his placement. His father regrets denying him the permission to join the class earlier.

Within this short period of time Trilochan has not only gained respect from his juniors and seniors in the training center but also from his friends and villagers. His friends compliment him and his village friends feel inferior when he greets them. Trilochan encourages them to join the short term course and many of them are determined to follow his footsteps. They too want to develop their self confidence and determination like Trilochan. His outspokenness and enthusiasm has attracted the attention of his villagers. They have started taking suggestion from him and he too at times goes around doing electrical works at their homes.

Trilochan’s mother dreams of getting him married once he gets placed in a reputed company. The MPEP classes truly made him an optimist and goal oriented person. As he waits for the placement, he counsels his parents that "the best is yet to come" and "better days are ahead"! He plans to buy a small piece of land in the future and build a house attached with a shop and let his ageing parents take care of it.

Life was hard for his father in order to support the studies of the six children. Vikas being the eldest son understood the misery of his parents. He joined hands with his father in cultivating vegetables in the small piece of land in the backyard of their poor kutcha house. However, the income from the vegetables was merely enough to provide for the basic needs of the poor family.

Soon he was very unhappy with the pathetic state of his family. He started doing odd jobs like daily laborer in construction sites etc. He started helping his family with the meager sum of money which he got. His parents were sad too because they never wanted Vikas to do such odd jobs and toil hard under the sun in such a way. At one point of time, his father fell ill . Due malnutrition the condition of his other three siblings was not that great too. Sleeping on the rice sacks (gunny bags), they would usually have cold due to the wet floor. They had to share the little food which they got and hardly ate three meals a day. At times their house would completely be wet due to the poor roof and the mud walls. The total income of the family was insufficient to buy medicines and also provide food and the school fees of the children.

Vikas was very disheartened, he was helpless. He could not find a better job in his area. Luckily one day, while going home after playing hockey in the village ground, he came across MSK mobilization camp which was going on nearby. He went there out of curiosity and saw some unfamiliar faces sitting there and talking with the village youths. After enquiring he learnt that those people were from MANTHAN and had come to spread awareness of the (Swaran jayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojna – Special Project program in the village. Vikas went and met a MSK official. After the counseling session, he felt ray of hope in him. He went home that day and though about the program. He discussed it with his mother and sister. They encouraged Vikas to join the course in order to gain some technical knowledge because they never liked to see him carrying heavy things for others as a laborer. Next 30 morning, with a new hope and blessings from his mother, Vikas went to the centre and enrolled himself in the electrical course of Manthan’s program.

Vikas was very attentive in class. Though he remained silent initially, he always paid attention to the teaching in the class. He rarely mingled with his classmates as he always feared that they would laugh at him because of his poor background and launguage. Gradually, he started interacting in class. He felt greatly motivated in (Manthan Personality Enhancement Program) MPEP where the students were given teaching on personality development, grooming etc. Vikas soon shone as a star in the class, he became the favorite of his teachers and his friends circle increased too. He now helped his friends who were academically poor in the training. He never hesitated to come up and explain. His sincere dedication and hard work was clearly visible; he became a motivation to the teachers as well. Manthan’s record suggests that he never missed a single class and was always on time for the class. Vikas is now fully capable to do all of electrical work which he learnt at the MGSSS centre.

Vikas completed his course successfully within no time and awaits his placement in the next batch of placement. His teachers believe that he would soon rise as a star wherever he would be placed. His friends and family are amazed to see such drastic change in his personality. He himself says that had he not been to the training centre, life would have been completely zero and monotonous. His outlook towards life has changed completely. He has become more optimist and definite towards his goal to become a successful man. Vikas dreams of supporting his brother and sisters financially for their studies. His parents have also decided to build a better house with the help of Vikas.

When she returned she came to know that she is going to be a mother soon. Left with no other options she had to live with her parents like any other village girls. The days went by and two years passed in between she had became a mother of a cute little baby girl and meanwhile her father also left them alone as bcoz he does not wanted to carry their burden. Left with no choices her mother took 36 the charge to feed the family but as we all know for a aged lady to work and feed people of a family is really a tough business. So, her mother had to work as a daily labourer to feed them. When there was work they used to feed & when there was no work it was really hard without food. On those days they had to sleep with empty stomachs filled with water only. The days were getting tougher and tougher to pass.

She proved again and again in the training sessions and finally topped the Batch.
