Gulam Shaikh, Star Bazaar

Gulam Shaikh, a young boy from Sakud village in Beed district, lives with his parents who are daily wage farmers and his siblings, of which one is deaf just like him. A SSC pass-out student, Gulam has seen hardship when his studies used to get effected when he was forced to work in the farms and had to work in the tea stall after his education. Serving tea to people for 12-14 hours a day for an earning of Rs 3000 a month wasn’t his dream. He always aspired to become big and earn as much money as he can. And for this he left no stones unturned. He completed his HSC through correspondence and then turned to Pankh when he realised that his education wasn’t enough to get him a job. Gulam now works with Star Bazaar and can easily support his family and dreams.
