Kudos to Roshan, Mukesh and many others for sheer determination & grit

In today's fast paced life, we fail to take note (many-a-times) of many exemplary instances of sheer individual brilliances which are not commonplace.

The stories (real) of Roshan Gudia & Mukesh Mahuwa, as appeared today in newspaper are couple of such examples.

Roshan, working as a sweeper in a primary health center of Simdega district did not lose his hope, neither his determination. He cleared the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) examination in his fourth attempt. From now on he will work as a DSP.

Mukesh Mahuwa's story too is in similar lines - son of a rickshaw puller and he used to play drums in marriages. He qualified for the post of Deputy Collector.

Unfortunately the national newspapers did not divulge more information on the same. I understand they would be busy in covering other issues. To me, what they did, appears to be more sensational than who is the mother of Ronaldo's son or what Paris Hilton did after being released from jail. Hopefully some responsible newspaper will cover these two pieces of information. I feel interested to know about these two individuals - what really motivated them to achieve a seemingly impossible task, given their present economic and social backgrounds.

Anyway, KUDOS to both Roshan and Mukesh - as well as many others who cleared the hurdle despite their impoverished background and current state. They serve as sources of motivation for common people like me.
