A young man aspires to be not just a graduate; he also aspires and dreams of acquiring an MBA degree or an IAS qualification. All this was not just for himself, but also for his family as well. Background: After he graduated, he had a few more dreams in his heart: to lift his family, give them all the comforts and necessities a person could give. But the universe had something else in its mind for him. At the age of 24 his father expired suddenly, a lightning bolt fell on him and his family.
He needed to take the mantle of the entire family responsibility on his young shoulders. It took him and his family years to come out of this grief. Just like Lord Shiva had to drink the most potent poison (Halahal) at the time of churning the sea of eternity - to get the jewels and precious nectar of life (amount). This nectar was available to Devas and the Asuras but not for him- he had to digest the poison of suffering - that of losing a parent at a young age. Similarly, he had for his companion, this poison of grief.
His grief multiplied when the so-called well-wishers and friends did not come forward to help or console him. They had nothing to offer to mitigate his suffering. But his love for learning and education, his understanding converted this hurt into strength. He had a wife and daughter to support, apart from his younger brother and his wife. Since his father was employed in the government, he was offered a job in the same institution. Some people advised him to get a job which would give perks along with the pay. But the brilliant and confident mind chose not to go on the off-beaten path. He had unshaken faith in what he envisioned. He asked his brother to take the job offered by his father’s government department.
He picked up the gauntlet to transform his and his family’s life. The values he had learnt, the principles he believed in, the faith he reposed in his abilities and skills made him take a different path than the one suggested by his friends and well-wishers. He opted to take a degree in teaching that is B. Ed. When he started teaching after graduating, as a teacher – the pay was very low– very insufficient to support his family and extended family. He was underpaid, the mind seeking excellence was not satisfied with this, and the financial shortfall forced him to look for work elsewhere, some extra income apart from his school job.
After the school job, he took some extra tuitions from mid-afternoon to close to midnight was his daily routine all the weekdays to close the financial gap. He took over the expenses of his extended family and their children – from sustenance, medicine to education and the smallest needs were satisfied by him, but who helped did not acknowledge his contribution and were ungrateful to him. Another emotional setback for him, his light of education and love for learning gave him the power to transform his life’s vision and use that force to unlock his bright future.
Due to his confidence, value-based teaching and great motivation, his students got so confident and efficient that they could face the challenge of taking their exams in any situation and come out with flying colours. He also passed on the same confidence and power to a few of his colleagues – so they also took over tuition assignments with the same confidence and success. But just like the Gods and Asuras got Amrut, he also got the nectar of success - a measure of gratitude from his students and their parents – their happiness, satisfaction and a new direction in life for students, his decision to take teaching as a profession got justified truly.
With excellent and unique teaching methodology, value-based approach - he made the parents & children happy. He also made his other colleagues happy and grateful, as he shared his professional contacts with them. To extend this happiness – he felt was his life goal. So, he decided to start a company – EASYCONCpT, which gave quality teaching at reasonable rates in Mumbai to students who needed educational help and also made his colleagues grow. We plan to grow this happiness like sunlight.
Let’s spread it to change and make our new India by spreading the light of teaching.
Someone once said that we meet no ordinary person in our lives, if given a chance everyone has something amazing to offer. We take pride in the fact that our foundation is built with the strength of positive intention of problem solving. A bunch of ordinary people with an extra ordinary passion and vision to create a breakthrough in the system of education and learning for life is the unbreakable founding stone of our institute.
Where most businesses start with the goal to earn profits and make money, our founders did not research on which field or industry had more scope and earning potential. Our path started with identifying the burning problem of students and teachers with profit making as a secondary goal.
With exemplary leadership, great work culture, willingness to learn and grow and a passion to make a difference, we tread on a path with many challenges and opportunities.
Life is an undulating road, full of potholes, speed bumps, bends, twists, hills, mountains, valleys and unforeseeable obstacles. To foresee every aspect of life and always being prepared is a myth. We can change the course of life gradually with small changes that can have a big impact that will help in living a happier, more fulfilling, more successful life.
A few days ago I asked my team mates, “Where are we going?” and they said you point the direction and we go that way. Being a charismatic and thoughtful leader is not easy. It needs selflessness, thoughtfulness, mindfulness, preparedness, acceptance and also readiness to carry a huge burden.
At the beginning of our journey, we just had a handful of teachers who set out on a mission to do something to solve the pressing problem faced by students and teachers and establish a holistic learning plan.
On this journey we were joined by many special people from diverse backgrounds. Right from experienced teachers to fresh graduates, to women who wanted to come back to the workforce after a break, with no boundaries to religion, age, gender or experience, we have built a team with many starting at level zero and becoming experts. We are a proud equal opportunity organization.
Our Founder Mr. Santosh Dubey: The Guru - An example of great leadership with vision and attitude that cannot be described in words.
