India is a country where education is given immense priority. This could probably be one of the reasons why education has also grown up to become a business sector that gains huge profits. Competition among the brightest students is so tight that students who are not toppers are left behind in the race of getting a good academic education and then a successful career.
However, there are exceptions. There are a few people like Mustafa P.C. who have run the race and also claimed the trophy, despite being considered not even eligible to take part in the competition. Who knew that a boy who failed class 6, hailing from a remote village in Wayanad, would one day own iD Fresh Foods a 100-crore company that sells fresh idli and dosa batter to many homes across Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Delhi, Mumbai, and even Dubai and become a role model and inspire many to overcome their constrains and fulfill their dreams.
And for all those who think that universities like NIT and IIM are only for a special category of students, Mustafa’s story says otherwise. His father was a coolie and his mother didn’t even have any formal education. Even then he graduated from these universities with top scores proving once again that anything is possible, just that one requires to identify his/her dreams and work towards that.
