Dream come true

Jadu Behera , S/o- Bhagabat Behera aged about 17 years belongs to dalit (SC) family of Uluda village of Nachinda Panchayat under Bhograi block in the district of Balasore. His father is a landless and daily laborer. His family’s main occupation is  fishing in the Bay of Bengal in rented fishing boat. Due to poverty of his family he left the college while he was studying in +2  Arts (Intermediate).  In this circumstance, one of his friend gave an idea to go with him to Hyderabad for working in a bakery factory. His friend  promised him for Rs.6800/- salary per month, along with food and accommodation  in free of cost. So Jadu  agreed in this proposal and left village with him in the year 2015.  But when he started to work, he felt that the work is much more than that was promised earlier and at the end of month he received Rs.6000/- instead of  Rs. 6800/-.The accommodation they provided was also not conducive to stay , it was very unhygenic. Also as promised he was not provided with food .So several times he felt sick. The owner of the factory did not pay any attention towards his health. His health condition deteriorated and he felt severe pain in his stomach.  So with the help of his friends he left the job secretly and returned to Odisha in the year 2016.

When he reached his family, all members astonished to see the health condition of Jadu. So immediately the family took him to the hospital at Balasore which is 75k.ms away from the village. The doctor after different tests told he is suffering from severe Gastric. After long treatment he was cured. In the mean time, the incident of Jadu came to the notice of staffs of PECUC. The members of VCPC of Uluda village informed the matter during the VCPC meeting. So immediately PECUC staffs visited his house and talked with him and his parents. During the conversation, it was found that Jadu was interested to continue his study, but his parents were not supportive for his study. Rather they wanted their son to earn money due to their poor economic condition. In this situation, Jadu became confused.  PECUC staffs counseled Jadu’s parents continuously and made them convinced to rejoin his son in +2 Arts (Intermediate). Then Jadu rejoined in the college and passed out in 2016. Now he is applying for Certified Teacher (C.T.) course to be a teacher. He is creating awareness among the children not to discontinue study until the age of 18 years. Now Jadu is happy staying in village with his family. He is dreaming to join as teacher and teach many more like him. Jadu and his parents gave thanks to PECUC for their inspiration to open their eyes.

But now Jadu could not qualify in Odisha Teacher Eligibility Test (OTET) and consequently not find a place for Certified Teachers (CT) Course in Govt. College. Further, he tried his hand in Private College, but he could not afford the course fees as it require high amount. Though, his dream is to be a teacher, but the economic condition of his family did not allow him to stay long without doing anything. In this circumstance, he is now receiving computer training and for gaining more practical experience, go to a computer DTP and designing centre nearby market.
