Ravi comes from a village in Haryana called Gannaur. He has studied till Class 10th. He had to quit studies after that due to the financial constraints of his family. To make ends meet he started working as an informal apprentice to an odd job man. His earnings from this was meagre and he was always worried about his next meal.
One day as he was sitting with his friends in a tea shop, he met one of the team member of Taare zameen foundation. He was oriented about the course. His friends did not pay heed to it, but Deepak wanted to explore the opportunity. He went to the center and was impressed by what he saw and immediately took admission to the course. He was a dedicated student and came for his classes every day. He was also working at the time to earn and managed his learning and earning together with a lot of challenges. But this hard work bore good fruit for him. He was able to secure a job with a contractor working with BSES Rajdhani at Punjabi Bagh. With an assured income of Rs 15,000/- per month he is now able to take good care of his parents and siblings and is very happy with the respect he has earned among his peers and in his community.
