The Boy That Rode his Luck


Arjun is a bright little kid at 16. His big stature is, however, a boost to his sage. His academic surge through preliminary classes to high school remains an incredible tale told by everyone in his community. Everyone of his mates envy him and every parent compared their wards to Arjun in order to boost their academic performances. Many likened him to the Einstein of this century for his brilliance and creativity. He is a pretty little inspiration for every kid around

For so long since birth, nature blessed Arjun with the best parents in the world. His mum will sell her clothes to buy him a book. In fact, his dad once sold an apartment to ensure he took part in an exam. What else do you expect when you have a child who wouldn’t let you down? His parents never regretted any of those sacrifices. In fact, they have shown to the whole community that they would do more if they have to. They probably have got no choice anyway. Arjun is the only kid the couple had after 17 years of marriage. He must have turned the other babies to his brilliance. 

Not long after Arjun wrote and passed his high school exam, he was awaiting admission into the university when his glow hit a natural low unexpectedly. He lost both parents in a famous Indian train accident that claimed 93 of 94 passengers, Arjun being the only survivor. Some believed it is better for him to have died anyway. Things got really rough without biological and economic support.

As a strong kid, he put his sadness behind him really quickly. Now being admitted into the university he needed funds to proceed. He knows he needs a job for this. Arjun reached out to a friend of his in the neighborhood to fake a certificate, and he got employed as an intern in a top international firm where he became the manager’s favorite. His quality and closeness with the manager earned him a better offer. He was to be upgraded to a full time role. 

Arjun wouldn’t let school alone. He obviously wanted to return. He didn’t deny the full-time job either. But he was enrolled as an intern with a fake result.
