At that point of time I was feeling alone without my parents, but my Bua Ji Prima (father’s sister) took care of me as her son. My father gave all my expenses to my Bua Ji Prima. I did my study of class 3rd in my village school, but when I was 10 years old, my father and mother came here and took me away from Varanasi to Bareilly. There I started my study in perfect way: I did my 4th - 8th class study from Bhartiya Sishu Mandir Bareilly and my high school and intermediate qualification from R.N. Tagore Inter College Bareilly. In 2007 and 2009 I participated in a computer quiz which is held in all U.P. level, and in 2008, I got first prize in that quiz.
My father, Om Prakash Singh wanted to make me an engineer, but I couldn’t get good enough marks in high school and intermediate. That’s why I couldn’t qualify for admission in IIT AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Exam) UPTECH, and that’s why my father became angry with me and said that now I should make my way myself, “What you have to do in your life, you decide; I will help you from money. After this incident, I went to New Delhi and joined the Mittaal Group of Ind. Near Laxmi Nagar. Far away from my father and mother in Delhi, I was not happy. But what should I do when my father told me, “Don’t show your face to me until you have gotten a perfect position in the perfect job with a perfect life?” Okay, so from that day to until now, I have been doing what my father said to me.
After Nw Delhi, I came to Varanasi and joined Netambit Infource Pvt. Ltd. I was working as a advisor in this company for a year was really happy there, but all of sudden the branch manager resigned and the Varanasi branch closed. I had no way to go. I was really tense because I had became unemployed. But after three months I came know about S.M.V. Wheels from my best friend Shanu Singh.
After that I came to this company and gave interview with Mr. Pravin Singh and Mr. Naveen Krishna, the MD of this company. After a few days, I got a call from Pravin sir, telling me that I had been selected; he said I could come and join on 29 February.
I really enjoy the work of this company, but Mr. Pravin said that having a motorbike is important for field work. After hearing this, I was very worried because I don’t have a bike. I thought that I might be fired if I couldn’t manage to get a bike. One day after staff meeting, the MD of SMV asked me if I had gotten a bike. I had no words to reply because I couldn’t manage to get a bike. After that, I took a long breath and said, “Sir, I can’t manage a bike, but if there is another way, please tell me because I don’t want to leave this company.” After that, Naveen sir said to Pravin sir, “Pravin, give Shani a bicycle if he agrees to do his field work on it.” After that, Pravin sir came to me and asked me, “Do you agree to do your field work from a bicycle?” I replied, “Yes, of course I will!” And the next day I got a new bicycle. I am really happy that now I am working full time in this company, and I give thanks to Naveen sir and Pravin sir. I promise to SMV that I will do my work with honesty. Thanks SMV for being with me!
