Stories from the ground

Komal can stand on equal grounds.

Komal is a 14-year-old girl living in JJ Colony Bawana, North West Delhi, with her family. Her family consists of her father, mother, and three younger siblings. Her father, Luv Gupta, works as a cobbler, and her mother, Rinki Gupta, works as a seamstress to earn the bare minimum to support the family of six. As harsh as these circumstances might be, they never stopped her from thriving in life and academically. Being the eldest, Komal is a very responsible and hard-working person by nature. She has been a part of the Navjyoti Remedial Program since Class 1 and is currently studying in Class 8 and mentoring the junior students through Bal Gurukul within the Foundation. Some of her hobbies are art and craft and music, as she tells herself, she can craft useful items out of what is considered waste. As a curious student, she has always been fascinated by digital learning, and that’s where she started learning through the only mobile phone her family owns and came across Project Kaushal. The digital exposure she got during the period of quarantine led her to pique her interest in computer studies and pursue it. This was a big opportunity for Komal to progress in her studies and learn what she always wished to through the means of enrolling in coding classes, where she learned about robotics, data analytics, and she is even learning about AI from scratch. Before getting enrolled in any of these classes, Komal had no prior knowledge of the subjects mentioned and only knew the basics of computers. However, as time progressed and she started learning daily, she improved her theories as she was able to solve the questions provided in the assignments very efficiently. Among the many benefits of artificial intelligence and machine learning is enhanced problem-solving ability, which helps students like Komal to be quick thinkers and find logical solutions to problems before others. Thriving in a utopian fusion of the human brain and machine capabilities, artificial intelligence and machine learning are the next big realms to learn and work in. With an understanding of these technological facets, Komal can process them to create wonders. Her learning will not only be limited to the advantages of artificial intelligence but will dive deep into its deep potential to bring positive change. That’s where her knowledge of languages like Python, which she has learned, will prove to be a boon. While talking to Komal about her future aspirations, she showed interest in opting for science and computers as her major subjects and pursuing her dream of coding, as she loves the new and fascinating technologies and wants to contribute to them. She shows gratitude and is thankful to the Navjyoti India Foundation for providing her with this opportunity to learn efficiently through these courses, as she, along with many other students, cannot afford the paid courses on the market. With this, she feels confident and can stand on equal grounds in the long run.
