I'd like to become a Dakshana scholar and hopefully attend IIT
A Letter to Sir

Dear Sir,

As you told to write as you are writing to your dearer one and being undeviated from your words I made you one of my dearer and telling all my feelings.

I am not so bright or so called scholar student and accordingly I had thought that I would never be associated with the Dakshana as it was taking the top-top filtered students upto 5th or 6th rank holders and I was an average student holding 10th, 11th? ranks. The day when I got to know that I have been selected for appearing the test I was surprised. But everybody, even my brothers, sisters also told that I got that only because of the reserved ?quota?. Sir, I hate that system. I had gone so harrassed that I was totally reluctant to even appear the test. But somehow I appeared and also got selected. From that day I accepted that no, there is no case of unfortune. God have given me a chance and I should not reject that. Moreover my father is a simple sivil servant, the only person having some income and all the 7 members of my family are dependent over him in all respects. When I was selected for the Navodaya, that day I was happy that though I have not got a job to add some money to my father?s income but I had saved some of his money. Before getting selected to Dakshana foundation I was thinking I will be a lecturer or any high school teacher because with the limited finance I could never be able to afford for any simple coaching. My friends used to tell about their facualties in their coaching centre but It was the first time got to know how are the facualties, how they teach, in what respects they are different from our school teachers. When I got this auspicious opportunity from that day I had strongly determined that there needs only one person to change the life of a generation. When that could not be I. Before I did not have any single reference without text book and here I am getting plenty of it. I am, and will try to my level best to use them appropriately, sufficiently. But I think the main problem will be my dullness. I am interested on neither subjects. When I completely understand something that day that subject is much more liking than that of other. For that only I am afriad of that if I won?t qualified for the IIT then what will I do? Almost all my effort I will put into the selection/entrance dragging from the CBSE syllabus. And if I won?t then where I will get a job to be a helping hand for my father and how will take the responsibilities of education of my younger brother/sister. Now the 1st term examination of CBSE is approaching, how will I face that?

Ok whatever be that I have come here for the IIT coaching and setting that in front of my sight I am practcing, and learning with the level best hard work taking care of my health. I would like to be an electric engineer and after all ?low aim is high crime?.

Thanking You
Yours sincerely
