“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. “– E.B. White
And I rose one morning and decided to be the part of AOGES, Adding the much needed GYAN to the lives of kids. Our dream was clear but the path was less taken by.
As I stroll back in time, I see so many fallen leaves, so many footprints that left their impression and so many things that have changed. AOGES is growing every day like a kid. I still remember those days when a group of 20 like-minded, confused and scared people held several meetings in the college mess. There was no other place to go! Discussing new ideas, evaluating work, making new policies all on those four or five tables joined together surrounded by a bunch of college students who had just one question deep inside their hearts, will this work?
Our workstation was a small cubicle where planning and execution was put into effect. Adjusting your schedule, working endlessly, standing for hours at a Xerox shop to get outstation letters printed, early morning wake up calls for work on Sundays, hostel rooms filled with inventory, rushing for placing orders, buying material, pheww! AOGES has shown us from real hectic to tensed days. Work has never been boring. Some believed, some left, some are still toiling hard to make it work.
And today, after almost a year and a half, we have a nice decent office space where morning starts at 7 and the day ends at 8. The entire day is the same old routine with hustle, bustle everywhere. Things keep moving faster, faster and faster with every passing day and you keep falling behind your schedule trying to catch up.
There has not been a single day when I left office without learning something new. AOGES has taught me that there is no substitute for hard work. I LEARNED THE VALUE OF HARD WORK!
As they say ‘No one has ever drowned in sweat.’
