Story

Hello, I am Rakshita. Being the youngest in the family, I grew up with utmost care and love.  I lost my loving mother when she was just age 36 due to a prolonged illness. She had to undergo multiple bronchoscopies, multiple tracheostomies and multiple esophageal dilations which warranted prolonged hospitalizations. My caring father had to battle both with the financial constraints and the health of my mother. All these procedures, surgeries, hospitalizations and medications pre and post surgery required huge amounts of money. We had to pledge whatever we had, took personal loans and even borrowed privately to meet up with the expenses. For a battle of nearly 3 years and with just one major and final surgery to go, the expenditures kept sky rocketing. My father was able to get a small amount through the Prime Minister's Fund in bits and pieces for the final surgery, which was helpful only for a part of the total expenses. Post surgery, 6 days later, my mother passed away August 22, 2012, leaving all of us shattered.

I have a loving sister who is a nurse by profession. She is working hard to move to the UK only to lift up our family from all financial constraints. She secured an overall 7 in the IELTS examination recently. Due to the new strain of Coronavirus there in the UK, my sister is being held back here. She will be attempting IELTS again in the meantime.

My father and mother are very caring. They took care of nearly 8 of my cousin brothers and sisters from the time they completed their matriculation until they secured employment and married. We accommodated all of them in our house for nearly 12 to 15 years. The last cousin brother who left us was as recently as last month after he secured a job in Wistron, Kolar. Five of my cousin sisters and brothers got married; all of them were brought up with utmost love and care by my father and mother.

My Education and Passion:
I am an artist and I paint portraits and sell them, thanks to the courtesy of some good and helpful souls who are behind my success in Art. I also play guitar and sing on stages. I was crowned as Miss Cluny in my PU College. I have won several medals and accomplishment certificates in painting, fashion shows, etc. On the education front, I love Maths. In my PUC, I secured 96% in Mathematics. I am now admitted to Acharya College in the Computer Science stream. Along with my education, I will still be pursuing my painting and music as it fetches me some money to pay towards my fees.

My Ambition:
I intend to become a well-known and outstanding computer science engineer and an artist. My intention is to earn and serve the needy and the deserving.

Others:
Once my elder sister is employed abroad, my father is determined to help at least a minimum of 10 handicapped people by giving them prosthesis/equipments on my mother's death anniversary.  On my mother's birthday, we have been serving food to homeless people on the streets in Shivajinagar. Every year, we visit them and give them a good meal on December 15th.

Current Situation:
Post COVID, my father has lost his job. He spent his life serving others, but  is in acute distress now.  I am worried about his health too.  Two or three of our family have helped us for the food. My father is in fact depressed due to the current situation of our family. He is 53 years old now and still wants to work hard to save the family. We pay EMIs for the home loans and other personal loans amounting to Rs. 35,000 per month. Now with no income, I feel a much more bitter battle staring at us. From a huge burden of 35 lakhs, my father was able to bring it down to 11 lakhs currently (working for 18 to 20 hours a day), but this has abruptly stopped after he lost his job now.

For all the good deeds of my father and mother, I hope that something positive happens as a blessing. Until then, the future looks very bleak and dangerous.  I Need help Please..!!

UTILIZATION OF FUNDS:
The funds collected through my valuable donors is intended to be mainly utilized for all my educational purposes.  Breakup is attached as a document.  After my successful completion, I take pledge in helping and donating for other deserving and the needy.  I would make every effort to keep this cycle widening.   Helping others wholeheartedly is a direct service to God.  Once again, I thank all my donors for your most valuable help.
