Jabbar zaroor paas honge

"Fight till death". This is the greeting text composed by my friend VK in his cell phone. Currently, he is technical head in a media organisation. I found this, when he had become part of senoirs' team in his previous company, however, not in top slot. I've found him always ready to move ahead wheather it's mid night or wee hours. Perhaps, this is the only secret of his health success and of course, power, he has achieved till date and still looking ahead.  
Today an item in Economic Times caught my attention :

65-year-old appears for class X exams. Undeterred by past failures, a 65-year-old grocery shop owner in Uttar Pradesh is appearing for class X exams for the 44th time. "Jabbar is 
taking the exams at a school in Fatehpur district (around 200 km from Lucknow) as a private candidate," district inspector of schools PP Maurya said. "He would be probably the oldest student enrolled with the UP board. His determination to pass the exam has impressed us all," added Maurya. "I am quite confident this time I would be able to make it," Jabbar told reporters on Wednesday after coming out of the examination hall. Jabbar, a resident of Bindki village in Fatehpur, has opted take the exams in English.
Jabbar's story is inspiring. We should struggle till achievement. I'd like to mention here another story. Rajiv Ranjan, a CA by profession. He had decided two things. One, to marry his beloved and two, to become Chartered Accountant. Despite all possible worldly hurdles including severe heart attacks to his father exactly on the eve of examination day, he met his targets. Now, a happy father of a lovely child. Highly energetic. Like father, like son.
We should wish Mr. Jabbar, all the best. Go ahead Jabbar bhai.
