Atamjeet Kaur: An Iron Lady From Humble Background
By Gurseemapreet Kaur, Coordinator, NGO Mission Deep
Atamjeet Kaur’ Atam’! The iron lady was born n brought up in the holy city of Amritsar in a humble and decent family.
Her upbringing made her very thoughtful and strong in her dealings and aspirations.
Her perception says that
To big battles that can be won!!”
A small trophy for her passion carved her footsteps towards bigger goals n accolades. Hence, from a scratch, the golden story of this lady is webbed.
She has been facing struggles right from her babbling days. Her father became jobless due to specific legal reasons, and the result was that she was deprived of basic necessities. Habits Guide: How to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones
Hence, her childhood was not colorful like other children’s. But she was not less than a bibliophile as she shared a great passion for books n aspired for the journey to be the leading one and indeed thrive.
Her mother was suffering from severe illness and departed for heaven at her adolescent age, and this was not the end of her miseries.
Still, many more chapters were yet to be read, which was out of her innocent imagination!!
So, despite the minimal reasons, ‘Atam’ managed to raise herself with each book of her dreams n hard work.
So, finally, she reached the stage of education where she successfully gained the degree of M.Sc. Mathematics.
Hence, this woman crossing the furious tides of life, still managed well that medals shine on her shoulder.
Strange are the ways of God! When she felt that she could see the rainbow in her life as she completed her degree course and now looked forward to some good respectable job, but then the chapter of the book of her life came with dark pages as her mother died after an illness.

But the unique aspect was that she became more mature and bold in her life as life never served her with a silver spoon nor gave her a bed of roses for her peaceful sleep.
Atamjeet Kaur, Atam still had to visit her college because of her thesis collection. So, the caravan of the prinking roads of sexually harassing females often came across her path. But she never gave up.
Then came a ‘Midas Touch’ for her when one bright morning. While crossing a flyover, down below, she saw the little kids-the ragpickers collecting some leftover thrown food on the railway tracks.
She peeped into that susceptible life n felt the natural blessings of God in her life. On seeing the sight she decided to be strong enough n come out from the poison that weakened her.
So, she purged all bad experiences and moved forward, looking forward to better flavors of life.
To appease her inner pain that always pricks the dignity of a woman, she moved to a nearby slum area with her weapons which included- a blackboard, chalk, a few notebooks, and pencils. She felt that education could be the dawn of the prevailing dark age.
So, she started sharing her aura with the savage kids who never thought to study. But, her hard work molded many souls. So, a one-woman army created a battalion to turn the savage into civilized ones!
Later, she worked in CBSE school as a mathematics and computer teacher. So, her status became more refined as a guide n a torch bearer.
Who knows to fill the empty pitcher!”
Because of her own hand experiences, she turned out to be a refined person with an ocean of knowledge.
She was also nominated for the Global Education Excellence Award, International education award, and human Rights education Award.
Equally, she is nominated for National excellence awards, the national Pride Excellence Award, the Forever Star India Award, and the India Creative Awards for being a dependable weapon of society in providing education in slum areas.
In her life, motivational resources were rare, and still, her hard work, to her life, added the stars many.
She successfully made the world record by composing 551 poems in 48 hours in the World Book of Records London.
In a nutshell, the woman who faced numerous hardships n faced humiliation at every step of life, today, after crossing each furious tide, turned to be a robust feminine personality and is labeled as a motivational speaker by creating a unique example for womanhood.
Her distinctive personality made her appearance in the show Josh Talks when she proved her strengths as remarkable one, as well as in Jalandhar Doordarshan; she has given voice to her thoughts as a poetess.
Hence to conclude I would like to say…”In the prevailing dark age, such a woman’s personality is similar to the Sun’s Rays!”
Her strength takes her to the zenith. Atam, setting an example of courage in ample!
