This was the biggest set back for Amit and his family. The young son who was about to become an officer in the army returned home empty-handed. Amit's father was a government employee in Dhanbad. The courage he got from the son's job, now he was also broken.
He recovered from the crisis that his father died of cancer earlier. A mountain of troubles broke over Amit. There was no other source of income either. The 20-year-old Amit, who was struggling for himself, had the burden of marrying 4 sisters and teaching a younger brother.
He suffered a head injury during training, was in a coma for 6 months, when he regained consciousness, he came to know that he was out of the board.
Amit says, 'I had double trouble. On one side is the responsibility of the family and on the other side, starting a new beginning for yourself, studying again. I had a financial problem, so wrote a letter to the Navy Chief. He told me that I should be given at least a fixed job so that I can fulfill the responsibilities of the family. A few months later, when no response was received, he filed an RTI. From there, he was given the status of X Gresia and X Service Man with 30 per cent disability, but it was difficult to manage the expenses of the family.
In the first attempt in 2010, Amit qualified the NDA. He had the opportunity to join the Indian Naval Academy.
Amit's father was in Coal India and after his death, Amit was offered a job. This was a Group D job, which he did not want to do, but the circumstances were such that he had to do that job. He used to work at night and go to college and study during the day.
In 2014, he graduated from a college in Dhanbad. He then appeared for the CAPF in 2015. He was selected in that, he also passed medical, but before becoming final merit, UPSC disqualified him saying that you are not an ex-serviceman. Whereas, the Indian Navy had given Amit the status of ex-serviceman in writing.
Amit met then Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar in 2016 about this matter. He assured Amit and sent a file to the department, but even after several rounds of offices, his file was not approved. He got frustrated from everywhere.

Amit now lives in Dhanbad. All his sisters are married. Amit's younger brother has also got a job. This has given him some courage, but he is still struggling with his career. He says that the army believes that the injury is due to him, then why does he not take our responsibility.
They say that if there is a job facility in the country’s paramilitary injury, then why can't it be for us. X service man also does not get benefit. The child who is selected for the officer's post, he returns empty handed without any mistake, what would be the big problem. Why does the government not understand the stress that Mentally goes through, along with the physical problem.
