Namastey to all, my name is Riya Barjaure. I am doing my college in Indore at Prestige Institute of Management and Research (Department of Law). I have to pay my full fees before exams this coming month, without any deduction in fees. I am not able to pay the whole amount because of my family’s financial condition. As we all know many people lost their jobs in this pandemic my family is also going through a tough situation for the last year.
My father is the only person in my family who works, and he used to run a small business making plastic boards but now because of the pandemic he cannot find a job, on other side my grandmother is also suffering from paralysis and has been bed-ridden for the last 2 years. So my father has to gather money for her medical expenses, family’s ration and the fee of my college and my brother’s school. Because of all of these family problems he is suffering from mental stress as well. If I do not pay the fees my college will not allow me to give the exams, and I will not be able to complete my graduation. I will have to leave my studies in the middle of the session. I belong to a backward caste, so my family background is not that much good from the beginning.
I am the first one in my family to pursue higher education. I want to become a lawyer someday and I am currently in the third year of the integrated course of BCom LLB. I am in a private college and there is hardly any scholarship that I could get. The fee for my course is Rs.50,000 per semester and we are unable to pay the fee for this academic session. My father has been paying my fee in installment and I requested an extension from my college but they refused and now if I don’t pay the fee- 1,00,000 I will have to drop out from my college I do not want to leave this college, so if it is possible for you all, please contribute and help me complete my college. I will always be thankful to you all.
