I'm Mahavir S Sovitkar now pursuing my MBBS at Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College , Sion Mumbai.
I completed my primary education from Fattechand Jain Mahavidyalaya , Chinchwad Pune. I got 91% marks in 10th standard.I gave my first attempt of Medical entrance exam in 2014 and I could able to get admission at Government Ayurvedic Medical College, Ratnagiri and a private MBBS medical college. As it was my dream to become a good allopathic doctor take higher education in that so that I can serve the society especially to the poor and financially disable people with my knowledge. But I found this dream will be dream only as I didn't get an admission in government medical college and it was difficult for my mother to pay fees of private medical college as she is being single parent to me and my younger brother. So I determined to take an another chance in 2015 to achieve my dream and to prepare again for an entrance exam. next year with the help of my mother and blessings of my father I could able to get admission in government medical college that to in the prestigious Institute like Sion Hospital, Mumbai.
After coming to Mumbai I realised that it's just a first step I climbed towards my dream there is whole staircase in front of me to reach my destiny. It's hard to survive in the city like Mumbai if you don't have supporting hand behind you to help you in needy situations especially in my scenario and that helping hand I got from Harjai Foundation.
It's was 2015 when first time we get in touch with Sanjay Harjai sir and the foundation. The foundation had offered scholarship to 7 students from our college and I was one of them. After that, now it's been 3 years the foundation is helping me, be it with course fees, hostel fees or medical books (which are quite expensive) so that it can relieve some financial pressure.
The kind words and the actions of Sanjay Harjai sir is not only helping the many more people like me but also inspiring us to help the needy people in whatever way you can and in near future when we will be financially stable we can also set benchmark by helping needy students and growing the sapling of Harjai foundation into a big tree.
Lastly I would like to say thank you Sanjay Harjai sir and Harjai Foundation for helping me to achieve my dream.
