S02E10: From Malom to Rome, journey of Rishikumar Khundongbam from Manipur.

Guest Speaker : Rishikumar Khundongbam joining from Rome, Italy
Phone Interview: Washington DC, USA and Rome, Italy
Language: Podcast in Meitelon/Manipuri.

FindingTheVoices is proud to feature the journey of Rishikumar Khundongbam from Malom to Rome as a Security Assistant working for the Indian Embassy. He shares very interesting aspects and opportunity and growth of his career. He grew up from a poor family, struggling with the loss of his father at a young age, joining as a constable and continued his journey traveling to traveling to different places (yangon and Rome). It’s interesting to hear about his intensive training experience. He shares the motivation given by his seniors to grow in his career path showing different opportunity and it’s encouraging to hear such stories of growth and opportunity without being touched by the corruption, bribing or knowing higher officials one so often hear, giving hope, hope to the common people that you can grow.

Also he has tips and advice for self defense techniques for girls. He has a great message to students on the diverse career option available.

One of our goal is to give student and parents an opportunity to hear from our own people about different career and job options. This will help to widen the young minds of Manipur to hear about other line of work. I have spoken to many students and the general perception of career option are limited to becoming a Doctor, Engineer or IAS officer. Other options are not much known amongst students as well as parents. Also there is the craze and pressure to join extensive coaching classes and wait for 2 to 4 years to get into the medical entrance exam. And within this span, there are many who would become depressed with low self-esteem, loose focus and stray away. We encourage that students go in the line which they have aspirations and interest in rather than being forced or pressured into the line of career parents believe in.
