While our Chatralayam students from Rajasthan have done us proud, our alumni from central India aren’t far behind. Sakharam Muwel now works with the Madhya Pradesh Police force.
His is the typical story. Son of agricultural farmers, Sakharam hails from a village located in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar district. A famous tourist spot, Dhar is packed with amazing attractions that include forts, old temples and waterfalls. People flock to the place to witness its architectural wonder and stunning natural beauty.
Sakharam’s father has a two acre farm and the family cultivates wheat, corn ,chana dhal and soya bean. If the monsoon is normal, the family is able to get an annual net income of Rs 70,000 to 80,000.
Sakharam is the youngest amongst five children (four brothers and one sister). He joined the Bapu-Buddh AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys Indore, Madhya Pradesh in 2007 when he was in the 6th standard. After completing his 8th standard, Sakharam shifted to the Smt. Jamuna Bai Chanchlani AIM For Seva Chatralayam for Boys at Hoshangabad.
Sakharam’s biggest inspiration has been Swami Aishwaryananda Saraswati, the coordinator of our Madhya Pradesh Chatralayams. And the biggest lesson he learnt while living at the AIM for Seva Chatralayams in Indore and Hoshangabad is hard work and discipline.
Both those attributes that were instilled in him early on in life have held him in good stead. After completing his schooling in 2014, Sakharam enrolled in a government Polytechnic College in the region.
Alongside, he prepared for competitive exams and Sakharam appeared for the police exams in April 2017. He got selected and after a nine month training period, the big moment came in May 2018 when Sakharam got inducted in the Madhya Pradesh Police force.
The young police officer’s motto is to do Seva for society.
