“Kabhi kabhi kismat ka taala aakhiri chabhi se bhi khul jata hai”

“Here is what Shubham has to say”:

Before I start my interview I would like to thank my soulmate who always motivated me in my thick and thin. She never gave up on me and believed in me that I will cross all the hurdles in life.

I want to thank my parents, friends and my teachers who always supported me in my bad times and a special thank to those who criticized me.

I would like to share my journey from scratch to win:

IBPS released the reserve list of IBPS SO, I didn’t get through even though i cleared the cutoff marks. The only problem was the age issue. I was shattered and Heart Broken.

1st april 2019

Finally the day has come. It seems some angleI was sitting on my head. The day was not like other usual days. I got final selection in BANK OF INDIA as a specialist officer(MARKETING OFFICER).

I just want to say one thing:

“If u have started something then u should be honest and dedicated towards it. Success will be yours”.

Lehron se darkar nauka paar nahi hoti.. Koshish krne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti..
