BA graduate selling kulfi

Sanjay Kumar, a BA graduate from Bhagalpur district of Bihar who dreamt of a Government job faced unemployment issues in life and later went on to become a ‘Kulfi Wala’. Struggling and working hard, Kumar has managed to stay happy and create a positive atmosphere around himself.

Kumar sells kulfi on the streets on Kashmir since 20 years. According to him, when he didn’t get a job in his hometown, he shifted to the valley to feed his wife and 2 children.

“Your education is your biggest asset. But job isn’t a guarantee. Bihar has number of uneducated people getting paid for government jobs while those with degrees are working as masons. I didn’t lose hope when I was jobless. Instead started working on my own.” He said

Kumar earns around Rs. 300-400 per day. According to him, its sufficient to pay college fees of his children and give them 2 times food.

“My earnings were more when Kashmir’s tourism was good. The pandemic has reduced my sales but I’m grateful to God for providing me with what I have. My daughter is doing Post Graduation in Economics and my son is pursuing Engineering. They make me feel proud everyday.” said Kumar

“Kashmir is a beautiful place. People all around the World appreciate this place for it’s beauty. The locals are very helpful. However, the youth needs to stabilise itself. Get up and start your own work. Don’t wait for anyone to help you.” He added

This Kulfi Wala is not only hard working but has proved to be an idol for many especially the unemployed youth these days.
