ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsNothing is too difficult or unachievable when you set your heart to it and every other day, someone or the other proves this right with their inspiring stories. In today's edition, we'll talk about the inspiring story of Brijmohan Meena, a gardener's son from Jaipur who cracked this year's UPSC exam. Before the UPSC results were out, people would rarely notice Murlidhar Meena. For most people, he was a man quietly watering plants at the BJP headquarters in Jaipur. But today, people know him as Brijmohan's father and are congratulating him for his younger son's achievement. Pexels This was Brijmohan's second attempt wherein he got the 713 rank, but he says that he will appear for the exam next year again and try to improve his rank. Brijmohan said, "I wanted to become an engineer but my father and brother coaxed me to sit for the UPSC exam. I am grateful to my family for their support." He added, "My parents have made a lot of sacrifices for us. Though we were not rich, my father never denied us anything. He struggled to give us the best he could. I want to make my father and my family proud and happy." According to a report in Hindustan Times, 57-year-old Meena who studied up to class 5, is employed as a gardener in the PWD department and says that it was a dream to watch his kids become IAS or IPS officers. He said, "I was posted at the secretariat, the state legislative assembly and other government offices during my tenure. I used to see all the officers and I realised that if I could give a good education to my sons, they too could become officers." Twitter Brijmohan has cleared UPSC and his elder brother is a senior auditor in the Accountant General's office in Goa. Meena takes immense pride in his job as a gardener and says that he will continue doing his job, "I will continue to work. One should not give up working. I don't want to be a burden on my sons. Gardening is my passion. Even after I retire, I will continue to do something." When I call Brijmohan a gardener's son, I am in no way trying to demean him or his father. But, the point I am trying to make here is that when most of us are busy looking for an excuse for not being able to achieve our dreams, there's someone somewhere achieving their dreams despite having limited resources. Brijmohan and his father are two such inspiring people.
'Bandersnatch' is awesome, 'Man vs Wild' is awesome, but Netflix thought 'What would happen if we smash those two together?' Well, a great show is what you get. Netflix's latest interactive project is coming this April and the premise already sounds so cool and promising. The show which is obviously hosted by none other than Bear Grylls is called 'You vs Wild' and I honestly just want to take a moment to appreciate the name. 'Man vs Wild' has one basic premise - Bear Grylls attempting to survive in extreme conditions and climates. But, 'You vs Wild', as the name suggests, will put the viewer in charge and all the decisions will determine whether he succeeds or fails. Basically, the people who would sometimes yell at the TV saying 'he should've done this instead!' can finally get a real voice. Since Black Mirror's 'Bandersnatch' was such a hit with the audience, even though I doubt anyone ever even managed to actually finish it, an interactive survival show should kill it. Netflix, please make a thriller or horror interactive movie next so we can actually control some of the stupid decisions instead of calling the characters dumb. Thanks. 'You vs Wild' is set to premiere on Netflix on April 10th and all the eight episodes will be available at the same time.
