In what appears as a great leap to social service, one engineer from Madhya Pradesh (MP) returns to his village after securing a covetous engineer job. Mr. Mastram Hathesh who graduated from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT) with material science and metallurgy decided to develop his village severed with under-development.
The young engineer pointed out that many individual from his village tends to leave their village for urban cities after securing government job.
It is speculated that many (Schedule Tribe) ST individual got government job through reservation.
“I feel that the benefits of reservation are being exploited more by the affluent class than people from underprivileged families living in rural areas. In my village, people still have to struggle for basic needs. Electricity supply is almost zero,” said Mr Mastram while pointing the hitch in reservation system.
What inspired the young engineer?
The idea of leaving a high paying job from the Bharat Oman Refineries Limited (BORL) occurred to him when no one from his village decided to turn up on his convocation day just because they were ashamed to show their faces before the people.
“Despite getting support and blessings from every villager, I was alone here because my community and family members feel shy to come out of the village and meet people. Development has not even touched the village,” said 21 years Mastram Hathesh.
“I feel that the benefits of reservation are being exploited more by the affluent class than people from underprivileged families living in rural areas. In my village, people still have to struggle for basic needs. Electricity supply is almost zero,” added Mastram, as reported in Hindustan Times.
