You must have been at a point in life where you might have felt that you were too young or too old for a particular thing. Happens to be, it all a fuss if you truly want to do something to make yourself proud.
Similarly, breaking the taboo, Jagarnath Mahto, Jharkhand’s human resource development (HRD) minister, applied for admission in class XI at Devi Mahto Inter College, Nawadih, a government-affiliated inter-college, in Bokaro district with an aim to complete his schooling. The 53-year-old wishes to continue his education after 25 years.
He had passed the class 10th in 1995 and has been facing criticism from other officials for his lack of education. Thus he wants to pursue further studies and complete the same.
“Constant criticism inspired to re-start my pending education. Ever since I was made education minister of Jharkhand, a section of people has been aggressive on my educational qualification. Then, I decided to begin my studies again,” the minister reportedly said.
He plans to pursue the Arts stream. “I will now carry on my education along with the education department. I am a politician. So, the subject of political science will be for sure. I will choose the rest of the subjects very soon,” he said.
When asked about how he will manage both schooling and the ministry, he said ” let me get the admission, first. I have just applied for admission today. If my application falls under rules, I will get admission. Thereafter, I will think about striking a balance.”
This proves the fact that it is never too late to start anything in life.
