A.) Aditya Birla Group and its massive role/presence in my life?
Aditya Birla Group (ABG) : Reaching The Sun
The group has always proved its Integrity, Commitment, Speed, and Passion in Shaping the future, and Empowering the World.
Spread over 35+ countries 42 nationalities and 6 continents – 1 Group –> ABG.
Very much like the strong “Ultra Tech Cement” walls of my home stand firm in any season of year, it motivates me to stand firm no matter what life throws at me, because UltraTech hai jo “Bade Iradon Me Jaan Daal De”.
Idea that not just changed my life but everyone else’s too - From 10 Rs’ Idea scratch card to 398 Rs’ Unlimited Plan, Vodafone Idea always enabled me to stay connected with my family and friends wherever they are. Be it J&K or Kanyakumari, Be it Assam or Jaisalmer, there was no place I lost touch with my loved ones.
I can never forget the aluminum foil which made sure my mother never worries about me eating cold lunch in school, then the ball we used to make out of the foil and hit my school friends. Even those long hours spent in Pantaloons with friends and every new collection that we were ready to try “Styled My Change” and left some unforgettable memories deep down inside.
From my first ever Allen Soley Suit that I wore to red Peter England tie, from Van Heusen Shirts to LP shoes all became a part of me and made me Rise above the Rest and Be Everything that I Loved.
Being a great fan of Shahid, I use every product that he promotes, it introduced me to the awesome collection of Skult (abof) tees that are now a part of my daily casual lifestyle.
From those fresh fruits to daily groceries that we buy from “More” always directed us to stay fit and healthy.
Birla Sun life insurance has provided its protective shield to not just me but also to my family and made us “Buland” to face the uncertainties of life.
From call of Newspaper wala throwing “Hindustan Times” at my door to switching on my “Orient Fan and Ceiling light”, from my neighbor’s old Ambassador where I used to hide in my childhood to the car or bike I travel in daily, are all shades of Birla Group.
The Aditya Birla Group works in 5,000 villages, reaching out to 7.5 million people annually through the Aditya Birla Centre for Community Initiatives and Rural Development offering Healthcare, Education, Infrastructure Facilities, Vocational Training, and creating model villages in rural India so that even the less privileged can live their lives to the fullest.
It also has more than 1,30,000 people as a working member of its family – its employees.
Aditya Birla Group has always been there with me in every walk of life as an invisible hand. ABG is no separate but a member of my family and it will always remain the same for generations to come. Last but not the least ABG leaves its footprints on each of our lives daily whether knowingly or unknowingly we are ABG and ABG is us. From Mr. Aditya Vikram Birla who saw the dream to Mr. Kumar Mangalam Birla to made everything a reality “BIRLA has always been a synonym for Trust”.
B.) Challenges I faced and how I overcame them to achieve my ambitions?
As Rightly said that “Challenges are the stepping stone to success”. I feel that challenges are stepping stones to help a person in realizing the best way he can live his life.
Ever since my childhood I was not able to make it to the top 3 ranks of my class which unknowingly kept bringing my morale down year after year. Even though being one of those brightest students among others I always felt that I wasn’t that good as compared to others who were ranked high. Even my father always gave me examples of those people and suggested me to study like them which really made me unhappy with my performance. I even increased my study hours but wasn’t able to find what the real problem was, which led to overall decline of my interest in studies in subsequent years until I got the results of my 11th class and found that I was not studying at all. I was not able to grab things as I used to do before. My father even took me to career counselor where that guy after counselling for 15 minutes and asking some absurd questions formed a conclusion to what I will be doing in future and told my father that I doesn’t seem to be interested in studies and asked him to get me admitted to some Private College in my hometown for graduation as I am not competitive enough as others of my age. After my 12th class results were out even my father felt the same. There was something that I felt now going very wrong and was going to completely affect the next few years of my studies and my career as a whole that scared the hell out of me. At that very moment I planned a solo trip and started meeting some spiritual gurus and motivational speakers and saw that spark and energy in them attracted me and I tried to dig out the fact of the truth about my life which led me to the answer of my question of why I did not topped the class and that led me to loose my standing through these years and the answer that I got completely changed my way of living the life and helped me to sail through its crests and troughs.
“Don’t ever compare yourself with anyone in this World . Everyone is born with unique set of qualities. You can only win this race of life if you keep improving on yourself and to better yourself than you were yesterday and only this way you make your tomorrow better than today. “ - Saurabh Purwar
