In this story of hard work and perseverance, a man chased his dreams with extreme diligence and the whole universe put all its energies together to help him achieve success.
Sreenath K hails from Munnar in Kerala and has been working as a coolie at Ernakulam railway station for the past 5 years.
While carrying the load on his head, he didn’t lose focus on preparing for the state civil services exam.
Even while slogging hard at work, he would utilise every opportunity to study and cleared the written test of Kerala Public Service Commission this year.
Speaking to NDTV, he shared how he used the free wifi available at the railway station to his advantage. He said:
I have appeared thrice for the exam. What I do is put on my earphones and listen to the study material as I carry the luggage or solve questionnaires in my mind. This way I can study while I work. I revise all my work at night when I get free time.
Sreenath is yet to appear for the interview and if he clears the 3rd stage, he’s hoping to work under the Depart of Revenue and Land as village field assistant.
The man is not willing to give up on his dream of getting a stable job anytime soon as he said:
I will keep studying. While I work as a coolie because I have the pressure of running my house, I will keep studying and appearing for exams. If I appear for enough exams, I am bound to get a good job.
Well, we wish him good luck!
