Never too late to study


I finally got the opportunity to join higher secondary class 11 after 19 years I passed my SLC(School Leaving Certificate). By the grace of God I was accepted to be admitted by the campus chief" Balbir Negi in Kalika Multiple Campus, Pokhara". I am so grateful to Negi Sir.

 I was so excited to start my  further study. It was completely new experience for me . There were about 50 students in my class. All the classmates were like my children.  Many of my classmates were born few years later I passed my SLC. I was even older than some of my classmate's parents. I was so excited to enter into a new environment with campus uniform. 

Many students who came there for admission in Bachelor level would greet me saying "Namaste sir" thinking that I was one of the lecturers in the campus. Slowly my classmates became friends, I never felt any gap with the classmates as well as the lecturers. I had double advantage of being friends with the lecturers as well as students. Many of the lecturers were younger than me. Campus chief would visit our class sometimes and would encourage me. I would attend the class regularly as much as I could. Thus, I was familiar to everyone.

In the final exam we had to go to another campus to take the examination. There another interesting incident happened. As I was entering the entrance gate, the checkers were asking me why I was there and for whom. I said I went to take exam showing my entrance card. They let me in. Then found my exam hall. There were only few students before me. As I was looking for my seat, many students came to the door and were asking,"May I come in sir?"Every students approached the door were asking the same question or the permission to get in. But there was no teacher in the hall. I realized that they were thinking I was the teacher, I said, "Yes, come in." Then the students gushed in the hall and sat on their seats.  

After few minutes one lady got into the hall with question papers and the copies, then everybody stared at me curiously. I think, they came to know that I was one of the examinees  Anyway I did take the exam well and passed the  the exam well.

Likewise, I passed the higher secondary level well and became the topper in the campus. I was rewarded with cash prize which really encouraged me to go forward. We were sent to a government school for practice teaching for 45 days which  I completed very well. I got 45 marks out of 50 marks in teaching. Then I joined the Bachelor lever, and passed every exam  and I finished my bachelor level study at the age of 44. From tomorrow I am going to teach in a High School as an English teacher.
I am very glad to have the great opportunity of study in old age.  I am really thankful to my wife Tara for her encouragement and support to make my study successful. 
It was really challenging to manage time as a father and the single person to earn for living for the family of four and educate two children. I had never thought that I would study in the campus. But where there is God's will there is a way.. I am glad that I have been the inspiration and encouragement to many young people to restart their studies. 

Few days ago one my lecturers congratulated me saying " Congratulation! You are the topper in the bachelor level" I was so surprised haring that. It is all about God's mercy and grace throughout my life during the study as well.

It is never too late to study or learn. Anyone can learn anything in any age.
