Nobody can inspire us like great teachers can. They seem to come along at just the right moment, at a time when we need them the most. Great teachers show us things about ourselves we can’t see. They see potential in us that others, including ourselves, can’t or won’t. Above all, they give us the courage to find our own way with just enough guidance to show us that the impossible—or what we perceive as impossible—is anything but that.
Here’s a story of a man from Patna who is carving out civil servants in his Gurukul against gurudakshina of Rs 11, 21 or 51.
Dr. Motiur Rahman Khan, founder of the Adamya Aditi Gurukul in Patna, transforming the lives of the students aiming to become the future IAS-IPS Officers, charging just Rs.11 as fees.
Unlike the institutes that charge lakhs of rupees as fee, Rahman asks for a meager gurudakshina. Over the years, many students taught in the Gurukul have successfully passed the top competitive examinations of the country and have become doctors, engineers and administrative officers against a gratitude amount.
Armed with triple Master of Arts degrees, Rahman founded Adamya Aditi Gurukul in January 1994 and his students made history in the very first year. That year the state government of Bihar required to appoint 4,000 police inspectors and 1,100 students from the gurukul made the cut and were appointed for the service.
Education is the only way through which Indians will be aware about their rights and be connected to the main stream of the society – Rahman
Not just Bihar, but aspirants from Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Madhya Pradesh come to the gurukul to seek Rahman’s guidance. There is not even one competitive examination in the country where the students of Adamya Aditi Gurukul haven’t left their mark.
Born in a poverty-stricken family, he had faced a number of financial problems since his childhood. Having been through many ups and downs in his life, he always wanted to help the underprivileged so that they do not come across the cycle of poverty.
He says poverty is not a state of helplessness instead it is a symbol of success that will be. With dedication, hard work, and passion everything can be achieved, he says.
Are you wondering how Rahman manages his operations on such meager amounts? Well, as the students pass out with flying colours, they take the pleasure to finance the classes.
