Shakeel Ahmad Dar is the first boy from Shagund village who will go on to become an engineer.
Srinagar: Living in abject poverty, 19-year-old Shakeel Ahmad Dar has made his mother and a village proud.
Shakeel has cracked the JEE or joint entrance examination. He is the
first boy from Shagund village who will go on to become an engineer. In a
two room structure they call home, the four members of Shakeel's family
share the space with goats.
"It has been very difficult to study in such circumstances where you
have goats in one room and have to study and live in the other room"
said Shakeel Ahmad.
His journey has been far from easy but he's well on his way to fulfill
his dream. With some help from the army and the Centre for Social
Responsibility and Leadership or CSRL, Shakeel qualified for the IIT
Advance exam after he was selected for the Kashmir Super 30 student
programme which offers intensive academic training free-of-cost to poor
but meritorious students
But, despite this Shakeel's future is uncertain. With no money for fees for either IIT Advance or admission to NIIT Srinagar.
"I was eligible for IIT Advance but I had to opt out because I had no money, Rs.
10, 000 for exam fee," he said. While Shakeel has already qualified for
NIIT, he doesn't have money to pay the fees. "Sir, the fees is Rs. 1.25 Lakh annually and I cant afford that. You can see our background. How can we afford Rs. 6 Lakh for four years."
Nine years ago, his father's death forced young Shakeel and and his
brothers into work. But, his mother Fareeda pushed him to continue
She once sold her traditional cloak or Pheran to pay the son's fees.
"What can we do now. If you please help .. If some one helps us. We
can't afford his fee. I was telling my son that I will go and meet Shah
Faisal (Kashmir's youth icon and IAS 2010 batch topper) and request him
for help" she said.
It’s always crazy when it comes to hacking of internet and computer embedded devices. It’s just amazing that the most cryptic and legendary systems can be broken down. How a few lines of code could topple huge corporations thus crippling the computer networks of the whole country and bring an entire organization to its knees.

As professionals we hardly put any thought into our body because we like working. We sit on our computers, staring at it’s screen without thinking about any of the consequences. These health tips were given by my dad, who is an orthopedist, when he saw me crouched over my laptop all day.

skills and improve knowledge of computers and gadgets in Nigeria.
However, I.T training centres are much more advanced, because they
deliver a higher level of training in information technology and offer
