As rightly said by our Former President Late Dr. Abdul Kalam,”If you want to shine like a sun, first burn like a sun.”
This girl Divya proves that there is no substitute for hard work. Every evening, Divya spends her time here (at the railway station) to study and do her school’s homework in the lights near the Enquiry Counter at Railway station in Orai, Uttar Pradesh. Her plight and challenging conditions don’t hold back her sheer determination and passion for studying hard. Her parents reside near a temple close to Railway Station. They live without electricity. So Divya chooses to come to this station so that she could get some light to study.
In a country where equal opportunity is denied to many children, she fights like a warrior and faces these trails with a smile. If we look carefully, we will be able to find thousands of Divyas around the country who are dedicated enough to pursue their dreams but don’t have the resources that will enable them.
The Don’t Give Up World Team urges the community members to share this post as much as possible so that at least someone comes forward to help Divya. Let us all try to give a better future for her.
