The craze of government jobs in the country is such that every year lakhs of youth prepare for different posts. The number of youth preparing for SSC, Police, Army, UPSC is in lakhs. These youths have only one dream that somehow Sarkari Naukri be achieved. This is the reason that someone living from remote areas of the country to villages and towns will find someone who is doing a government job. However, even after this, there was a village in the country where a person got a government job after 75 years of independence.
Actually, this village is located in Bihar, where after 75 years of independence, a person from the village has got a government job. Rakesh Kumar, 30, a resident of the village has been appointed as a primary teacher in a government school. There is a wave of happiness among the people of the village due to this achievement of Rakesh. The villagers distributed sweets and celebrated each other’s cheeks by applying gulal to Rakesh in the joy of getting a government job. Actually, many types of facilities are also available with a government job. Because of this, when a person gets a government job, it is considered a great achievement.
Students went out for studies, but did not get job
Rakesh Kumar is a resident of Sohagpur village of Bihar. He has got the job of a teacher in Barkurwan village, which comes in his district only. However, government schools are also present in Sohagpur. But the people of the village do not teach here. The teachers who come to teach in this village come from other parts of the state.
Devendra Choudhary, a local leader, says that generations of people in Sohagpur village have taken up stable and well-paid jobs in Sohagpur village since independence. But there are very few ways to do this. Many students of the village have gone to the nearby big cities for studies, but till now no one could get a government job. Devendra Chaudhary said that Rakesh Kumar’s success has finally removed the dark cloud of misfortune from the village and the younger generation will be inspired by his success.
What did Rakesh Kumar say?
Talking about his success, Rakesh Kumar said that he feels that he has enhanced the value of his village. But his journey has not been easy at all. Rakesh, the son of a grocery store owner, had to cycle 20 miles every day to the neighboring town of Muzaffarpur, where he attended high school. To meet the needs of the house, he used to teach young students in his spare time.
Rakesh said the situation got worse when his father died in 2016. He said, ‘But I have tried to fulfill my father’s dream. They wanted me to become a doctor or a teacher. Now I have made his dream come true. Kumar hopes that the job will open new doors for him. Now he is planning to prepare for the state exams to become a civil servant.
