Of resilience, grit and perseverance: How an RMLNLU security guard cracked AIBE to become a lawyer

A year later, he was given the chance to be a security guard at RMLNLU, Lucknow. The opportunity to be surrounded by fellow law students instilled in him the zeal to see this dream through to its logical end.

Then, tragedy struck. After he graduated from law school in 2016, one of Verma’s 5 daughters was diagnosed with a brain tumor for which she was hospitalised for two years until she breathed her last around 2018. In order to sustain his family during this period and to deal with the exigencies, Verma continued working as a security guard with RMLNLU, at a cyber cafe and did other odd jobs intermittently.

Around this time, Verma began doing clerical work at a lawyer’s chambers.

“I rendered administrative assistance and would manage to make about ₹50-60 in a day. However, given the measly amounts at the lawyer’s office, I had no option but to keep my job as a security guard where I earned about ₹6,500-7,500 per month from 2013-2017, along with working at the cyber cafe, where I managed to make about ₹100-200 per day.”
