For two hours every morning and evening, both the platforms 1 and 2 of the railway station turn into a #coaching class

For two hours each morning and evening, both the platforms 1 and 2 of the railway station set into a #coaching class for young personalities who are aspirants for the #civil services: The Indian Administrative Service, multiple bank examinations, the state civil service, even approach to the IITs and IIMs.  

It all started in 2002-03 when a little group of students began coming to Sasaram railway station to study. Soon the Sasaram railway station study groups have converted an institution. Senior students — both those who have been victorious and those who have not — get to the station to mentor younger boys in what has grown a ritual over the years. 

The reason is: Sasaram station has current 24X7. And the energy never goes. Often, the boys are from Rohtas, the district in Bihar that is hit by Left-wing insurgency. In several villages, either there is no power or the electricity is only occasional. These boys see a government job as the end of their efforts and take benefit of the well-lit station to sit below the lamp-post to study.  

The station has confirmed its role in shaping careers and has really issued 500 identification cards to the boys to allow them to come and go easily, using the platform as short open classrooms. Some boys don’t go home at all, opting to rest there at night. They utilize the platform to take lessons and tips from seniors: Not just for the written tests but also for interviews. 

The coaching includes sets of questions on a diversity of subjects: Current affairs, mathematics, reasoning, and language.....what a Jugaad. Wherever there is a will, there is a way !!
