For over a year Anish M Joseph, a research scholar at University of Hyderabad, has taken the responsibility of being the eldest son of the family. Having taken the path of research, the 25-year-old scholar from Kannur in Kerala aspires to become a teacher in the future.
The GATE scholar is a second-year MTech student of computational techniques. He has been giving home tuitions to a Class XI student which earns him about `4,000 a month, apart from his GATE scholarship of `8,000. “Since I joined MTech, I have managed to send home around `7,000 every month as I teach physics and mathematics thrice a week. I save enough money for my personal needs here and send home the rest,” said Anish.
Anish thinks it is necessary to utilise even the free hours with something that is useful for his study. “By teaching school-level maths and science, I am revisiting my basics. Things have changed much in school curricula and being in constant touch with basics is always good,” he says. “I have to travel a bit, which is hectic but that is also a way of much needed distraction from studies,” admits Anish.
If you ask him about his future plans, Anish would admit that he loves teaching. “I have drawn inspirations from a few teachers and would be grateful to them throughout. They are the one’s who gave me the direction,” says Anish.
