Vishal Dilip Bhujbal: A blessing in disguise for the Indian Railways system
Nowadays, many people in power turn out to be corrupt and abusive of their authorities. It is up to only a few to actually bring about a change in the world and push it towards the better. Such people are like angels walking among commoners; however, they are not actually angels or anything divine. They are just people like us who are working as social workers. Yes, you read that right- a large part of societal and economic development falls in the hands of social workers and activists. It is hard to find someone who is actually passionate about making a positive impact which is why it is important to actually celebrate and reward their efforts.
Vishal Dilip Bhujbal is one such person who is putting in his all as a social worker. Initially, this was not his plan for life and he had hoped to secure a normal 9-5 job like most others. However, Bhujbal was influenced by Bhaiyyuji Maharaj, a phenomenal charity worker. After meeting Maharaj, Bhujbal was extremely inspired and decided to dedicate his life to helping those in need. Bhujbal’s parents were initially hesitant of their son doing social work for a living since it is not a career that provides much in terms of monetary wealth. However, they soon saw the happiness and satisfaction that it brought Bhujbal to help the despondent and the weak in their times of misery and they instead chose to be supportive of his dream.
Bhujbal has done quite well in his career as a social activist and achieved many of the goals that he set out on. Recently he was appointed for a position in the Chakradharpur divisional Railway advisory committee of the Indian Railway. As we all know the Railways is one of India’s largest public-sector undertaking. Many people often take for granted the sheer size and scale of operation of the Railways. They often complain about the service and efficacy of the Railways but we all know that if one train is late for one day life would literally come to a halt. Bhujbal has been aware of this for quite some time and has been actively working towards solving people’s qualms around the railway system.
Chakradharpur which is a municipality in the state of Jharkhand is one of the busiest routes in the state. It also forms a major section of the South Eastern Railway known for its richness in the mining business. The route has a large number of passenger and freight trains passing through it at every hour of the day. Problems along the Chakradharpur route run galore and Vishal has been working hard to bring such issues to an end. With the help of several NGOs and charitable organisations, Bhujbal is trying his level best to bring development to the Railways.
In the year 2020, Vishal Dilip Bhujbal was awarded the title of “National Youth icon 2020” at Delhi. It is a great achievement especially at such an early stage of his career. Bhujbal still has a long way to go till all his goals are fulfilled and along the way, he is sure to help many more.
