Struggles of our Life.
Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.

Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.

Turning to her, he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” “Potatoes, eggs and coffee,” she hastily replied.

“Look closer”, he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft.

He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.

Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.

He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

“Which one are you?” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”

In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it. Life is all about leaning, adopting and converting all the #struggles that we experience into something positive.

Mangal Singh has done PRITHAK proud. He is the first to be selected for an Exchange Program sponsored by the US State Departments. Mangal has now left for a yearlong study in Media and Graphics at the Santa Rosa Junior College in California, United States.

Mangal's family hails from a small village in Uttar Pradesh. His father moved to Delhi for a better living. His mother and sister decided to go back in the village while Mangal stayed with his father. He did his schooling up to 10th standard from Deepalaya. After that, he enrolled in senior secondary school and did well academically, while he also managed the house. His father is working as a tailor in a factory.

While at School, Mangal discovered his talent for art and creativity. Encouraged by his teachers, he worked further on his skills. After completing High School, he completed two-year Diploma in Art and Book Illustration and Computer Graphics, which was possible due to the sponsorship support from ShikshaDaan. He then went on to work in the field of graphic designing.

He is one of the Founding members of PRITHAK and also volunteered his time to teach Art & Craft to the students. PRITHAK has been a turning point-"I have learned organization skills, professionalism, improved upon on team building skills and will not be wrong in saying I have learned and built upon my leadership skills".

In 2015, PRITHAK got an opportunity to send in candidates for the CCI program that is sponsored by U.S. Department of State. We sent three candidates from PRITHAK. Mangal made it to the list of selected candidates. Apart from filling in a detailed application form, he went through tests for English language fluency and other capabilities. He did well throughout and Team PRITHAK was elated on receiving news of his selection.

CCIP (Community College Initiative Program) is an Exchange Programs - U.S. Department of State that provides a quality academic program at U.S. community colleges intended to build technical skills, enhance leadership capabilities, and strengthen English language proficiency. The program also provides opportunities for professional internships, service learning, and community engagement activities.
Participants spend one academic year in the United States and earn certificates in their fields of study. After completing the program, participants return home with new skills and expertise to help them contribute to the economic growth and development of their country.

"Teaching young children gave me a lot of patience levels grew; my role went beyond an art teacher- it was learning management of their joys and sorrows, counseling their family members, it was a challenge- mostly parents felt art & craft was a waste of time. It took the time to convince them that an extra-curricular skill helps the child develop confidence, builds their personality," says Mangal.

Mangal attributes much to PRITHAK-" Being associated with PRITHAK has been inspiring; to mobilize the neighborhood for educating their children, adopting healthier way of life, think about and plan for the future has been a big challenge but I am happy that we have been accepted by the community now we will take further steps".

Mangal is confident that he will be back with the sharper organization, management, and networking skills which will help him with PRITHAK's progress. He is also sure that his enhanced knowledge on graphics will help him professionally and he also hopes to teach more at PRITHAK.

GOOD LUCK Mangal!!
