‘If I work while studying, what’s the harm in that? If the body is healthy then I will be able to focus on studies. A video of a 12-year-old boy selling newspapers in Jagtial, Telangana is going viral. This question pertains to that child. In this video the child’s answer is being discussed. Even state minister K. T. Rama Rao has praised the child’s confidence while tweeting the 43-second video.
In the video, a man took a newspaper on a bicycle and asked a child who was putting it in the shops and asked the reason for doing this work instead of studying. Jaiprakash, who is studying in 6th standard of Government School, replied with innocence that if he does it now, it will prove useful for the future. After the video went viral, our associate newspaper Times of India spoke to the child.
12-year-old Prakash said that he is doing the work of selling newspapers in the morning, not out of any financial compulsion, but out of his own volition. The child said, ‘I have been doing this since November 2020. After getting up early, the body’s immunity has improved by cycling and distributing newspapers. My body will be healthy and I will be able to focus on studies.
Telangana IT minister and senior leader KT Rama Rao said, “This video is from Jagtial Town. This is young Jai Prakash, who studies in a government school. Its confidence, clarity of thought and expression are superb. It says that what is the harm in working while studying in school. It will prove to be very good in future.
inspiration from big brother
Prakash thanked his elder brother Sai Krishna for this habit. Prakash’s elder brother Sai, who is in high school, has been doing this work for four months before that. Krishna said, ‘Mere education is not enough. You should also come to work. And putting up a newspaper is a great physical and mental exercise.’ He told that younger brother Prakash did not wake up earlier in the morning but now his habit and routine has improved.
Along with health, the focus on studies also increased
Krishna said that Prakash’s maths and physics are also getting better with this work. He said, ‘Now he knows how much strength and which angle is better for the paper to reach a certain height.’ At the same time, Anusha, the mother of both the brothers, told that this work is bringing self-confidence and self-reliance in both of them.
