My Journey (मेरा सफर) – Aditya Rana

Aditya’s Journey

मैंने सन् 2003 में अपने इंटरनेशनल कॉल सेंटर करियर की शुरुआत की और सन् 2009 में कॉल सेंटर इंडस्ट्री को अलविदा कर दिया। इन 6 सालों में मैंने कई MNCs जैसे Vanguard, Tele-performance India, Serco International, Convergys, HCL और Wipro में काम किया। Sales Executive से शुरूआत और फिर Supervisor, Team Leader, Group Leader, Assistant Manager और Operations Manager तक का मेरा सफर बहुत शानदार रहा।

I started my international call centre career in the year 2003 and bade it bye in 2009. In these six years, I worked with various MNCs, i.e., Vanguard, Tele-performance India, Serco International, Convergys, HCL, and Wipro. The journey from Sales Executive, and then Supervisor, Team Leader, Group Leader, Assistant Manager and Operations Manager had been incredible.

अपने इंटरनेशनल कॉल सेंटर करियर को खत्म करने के पीछे कारण ये था कि मैंने कई गरीब युवाओं को देखा जिनके पास नौकरी नहीं थी। मैं चाहता था कि मैं उन्हें अंग्रेज़ी में सक्षम करुँ ताकि वो भी कॉल सेंटर इंडस्ट्री ज्वॉइन करके अपनी जीविका चला सकें। उन दिनों कॉल सेंटर इंडस्ट्री ने जबरदस्त रफतार पकड़ी थी। वो अच्छी सैलरी देते थे, साथ ही कई सुविधाएँ भी जैसे घर से Pickup और Drop, कम्पनी में फ्री खाना, अच्छा Incentive वगैरह, लेकिन कॉल सेंटर ज्वॉइन करने के लिए जिस एक मुख्य चीज़ की ज़रुरत थी – वो थी अंग्रेज़ी बोल पाने की काबिलियत.

The reason I left the call centre industry was that I witnessed a huge underprivileged youth population without jobs. I wanted to equip them with English speaking skills so as to enable them to join call centre industry and earn their livelihood. Those days, the call centre industry was in a boom. They were well payers. They also provided facilities like pick & drop, the meal at work, great incentives, and so on; but the core skill one needed to have, was the ability to speak English.

चूँकि मैंने हिन्दी मीडियम स्कूल से पढ़ाई की, किताबों से अंग्रेज़ी सीखी, अपनी Communication Skills को सुधारने के लिए coaching Institutes ज्वॉइन किया और फिर कॉल सेंटर ज्वॉइन करके अपनी fluency को निखारा, इसलिए मैं चाहता था कि मैं सभी जरूरतमंदों, विशेषकर हिंदी माध्यम के स्कूलों के लोगों को यह भाषा सिखाना चाहता था।

Since I did schooling from a Hindi medium school, learned English through books, joined coaching institutes to improve my communication skills and then, joined call centre industry to gain fluency; therefore, I wanted to teach this language to all the needy, especially the ones belonging to Hindi medium schools.

मैं उन दिनों दिल्ली में दिलशाद कालोनी में रहता था जहाँ मैंने Spoken English सिखाने का एक इंस्टिट्यूट खोला। सन् 2009 से 2012 तक मैंने 3000 से ज्यादा Students को English पढ़ायी, जिनमें से करीब 1000 से ज्यादा ऐसे बच्चे थे जो गरीबी रेखा से नीचे जीवन व्यतीत करने वाले परिवारों से थे।

I lived in Dilshad colony, Delhi those days; where I had set up a coaching institute for Spoken English. From the year 2009 to 2012, I taught English to more than 3000 students; out of which nearly 1000+ belonged to BPL families.

Nov 2012 की बात है। मैं एक दुकान पर खड़ा था जब मुझे ये पता चला कि मेरी एक Student ने Institute सिर्फ इसलिए छोड़ दिया था क्योंकि उसका परिवार रु. 300 महीने की फीस देने में भी असमर्थ था। हालाँकि उस वक्त मैंने उसकी मम्मी से कहा कि वो उसे बिना फीस के भेजें, लेकिन इस घटना ने मुझे ये महसूस कराया कि देश में कितने ऐसे लोग होंगे जिन तक निःशुल्क शिक्षा पहुँचाने की ज़रूरत है!

It’s about Nov 2012. I was standing at a shop when I got to know that one of my students, Shabnam, left the classes just because her family wasn’t able to afford the monthly fee of Rs. 300. Although I convinced her mom to send her without fees, yet this incident made me to think how many such people needed to receive education for free!

31 Dec 2012 की रात मुझे ऐसा सपना आया, मानो किसी ने मुझे अंग्रेज़ी को देश के हर कमजोर व ज़रुरतमंद व्यक्ति तक पहुँचाने के लिए प्रेरित किया। यह संदेश शायद एक मजबूत विचार के कारण उत्पन्न हुआ, जो मेरे अवचेतन मन में कहीं न कहीं पहले से ही व्याप्त था कि मेरी इस सोच का विस्तार कैसे किया जाए! लेकिन जैसे ही सुबह 4 बजे मैं उठा, मैंने तुरन्त अपने सबसे करीबी दोस्त मुजीब खान को फोन किया। हमारे बीच करीब एक घंटा फोन पर बातचीत हुई और फिर करीब 5 बजे वो मेरे रूम पर था। करीब 3 घंटे चले उस विचार विमर्श के बाद हमने एक वेबसाइट बनाने का निर्णय लिया गया। उस वक्त YouTube और Android App की पहुँच आम आदमी तक नहीं थी।

It was 31st Dec 2012, I had a dream that night. It was a message sort of, as if someone propelled me to explore English Education to as many deprived people as I could. This message probably triggered owing to a strong thought, which had been pre-occupied somewhere in my subconscious mind that how to expand my vision! So, the moment I woke up at 4, I immediately called my best friend, Mujeeb Khan. We discussed over the phone for about an hour, and then, at about 5, he was in my room. After 3 hours of discussion, we decided to create a website. Those days, YouTube and Android Apps weren’t quite in reach to people like today.

4 महीने दिन रात मेहनत करके हमने Study Material तैयार किया। मैं हर कन्सेप्ट को कागज़ पर लिखता था और मुजीब उसे Computer पर। April 2013 में हमने www.englishwale.com डोमेन खरीदा। हम एक ऐसी वेबसाइट बनाना चाहते थे जिसके ज़रिए अंग्रेज़ी सीखने के लिए ज़रूरी हर तरह का Study Material लोगों तक निःशुल्क पहुँचे।

After four months of extreme hard work, we prepared the study material. I would write each & every concept on a piece of paper, and Mujeeb would further draft it in a computer file. In April 2013, we booked a domain (www.EnglishWale.com). We wanted to create a website to provide all the necessary study material to the needy individuals for no cost.

हमने वेबसाइट बनाने वालों से बात की इस बारे में। सोच बडी थी, लेकिन न पर्याप्त पैसा था और न ही इस तरह की वेबसाइट बनाने की काबिलियत। July 2013 में मैंने बैंक की सरकारी नौकरी Join कर ली और दिल्ली छोड़कर चला गया। मुजीब भी अपने काम में व्यस्त हो गया।

We had words with web developers on it. Our vision was intense; but, we neither had money to invest nor the ability to create a website on our own. Helplessly, in July 2013, I joined a government bank and left Delhi. Mujeeb got back to his current work too.

अब हमने इंटरनेट के माध्यम से वेबसाइट बनाना सीखा, हालांकि हम कई प्रयासों में असफल रहे। अब यह आसान हो गया है, लेकिन उन दिनों ऐसा नहीं था, हमारे पास कोई पर्याप्त प्रशिक्षण सामग्री ऑनलाइन उपलब्ध नहीं थी। फिर भी, हमने कभी उम्मीद नहीं हारी। हम सीखते रहे। आखिरकार, अक्टूबर 2014 में हमारा सपना सच हो गया; लगभग डेढ़ साल बाद। हमने वेबसाइट बना ही ली।

Now, we learned how to create a website with the help of internet, we failed in several attempts though. It has become quite easier now; but it wasn’t so those days, we had no adequate training material available online. Still, we never lost hope. We kept our learning on. Finally, our dream came true in Oct 2014; nearly one and a half years later. We eventually created it.

हम धीरे धीरे उन लोगों तक तो पहुँच रहे थे जो इंटरनेट के बारे में जानते थे, लेकिन उनका क्या जिनके पास न कम्प्यूटर था और न ही ऐसा फोन जिसमें इंटरनेट की सुविधा। एक बड़ा सवाल फिर सामने खड़ा हो गया। ऐसे लोगों तक पहुँचने का बस एक ही तरीका नज़र आया – एक किताब।

Although we were gradually reaching people through our website now, yet we had a big question before us – what about those who neither had a computer nor a mobile, not having internet facility either. And then, the only solution we could think of was to introduce a book.

मैंने अपनी जॉब के साथ-2 करीब 6 महीने रोज़ 3-4 घंटे काम करके Englishwale.com English Speaking Book लिखी और June 2015 में इसे पूरा कर लिया। आज 4 साल बाद यह पुस्तक Flipkart पर इंग्लिश स्पीकिंग कैटेगरी की सबसे प्रसिद्ध पुस्तक बन कर उभरी है और साथ ही, हम इसकी 1 लाख से ज्यादा प्रतियाँ गरीबी रेखा से नीचे जीवन व्यतीत करने वाले बच्चों तक निःशुल्क पहुँचाने में कामयाब रहे, लेकिन इस पुस्तक की शुरुआत इतनी आसान नहीं थी।

Along with a hectic job profile of mine, I somehow managed to devote 3-4 hours a day for the next six months and completed my first book in June 2015, popularly known as “Englishwale.com English Speaking Book”. After four years today, this book has become the best seller on Flipkart in its genre and we’ve successfully sold 4.5 Million+ copies so far through our various e-commerce partners and a strong offline distribution network of dealers & distributors. As well, we have successfully distributed its 100000+ copies to BPL students for no cost at all. But, the beginning of its journey wasn’t that easy.

शुरुआत में हमने इसका एक प्रिंट निकाला और दरियागंज के लगभग हर पब्लिशर से मुलाकात की लेकिन इस पुस्तक को पब्लिश करने में किसी ने कोई दिलचस्पी नहीं दिखाई। मुझे याद है, एक Publisher ने कहा था, “चप्पलें घिस जायेंगी”। मैंने भी बड़े प्यार से उन्हें जवाब दिया “तो हम नंगे पैर चलेंगे। हम थक तो जायेंगे लेकिन किसी भी हालत  में रूकेंगे नहीं।” 

We took our book to almost every single publisher at Daryaganj. No one at all showed any interest to publish it. I recall a publisher ridiculing me, “Chappalein ghis jaayengi”{Your slippers will wear down}. I politely responded, “We will be walking barefoot then. We will possibly get tired, but we will not give up under any circumstances at all.”

अब हमने खुद ही किताब की 1000 प्रतियाँ छ्पवाने का फैसला किया। उन दिनों एक बार में 1000 से कम प्रतियाँ छ्पवाई नहीं जा सकती थी। हर महीने की सैलेरी से पैसा बचाकर हमने Nov 2015 में किताब छ्पवायी। अपनी वेबसाइट और किताब के बारे में लोगों को पता चले, इसके लिए हम कई बार मैट्रो स्टेशनों के बाहर खडे होकर खुद ही बताते थे। Dec 2015 में हमने अपनी किताब को Flipkart और Amazon पर भी उपलब्ध कर दिया।

Now, we decided to print its 1000 copies on our own. Those days, there wasn’t a choice to go for less than 1000 copies in one print. Having contributed a significant part of my salary every month, I finally got its first print in Nov 2015. To do branding, Mujeeb and I, sometimes, would stand outside metro stations and let people know about our brand. In Dec 2015, we made our book available on Flipkart and Amazon too.

Oct 2016 में एक student ने मुझे ईमेल किया था कि किताब के साथ-2 अगर Video Lectures भी उपलब्ध हों तो ये सभी students के लिए फायदेमंद होगा। 3rd Nov 2016 को मैंने Spoken English Guru YouTube Channel पर अपनी पहली वीडियो से शुरुआत की। July 2017 तक करीब 200 Subscribers जुड़े थे। Aug 2017 से मैंने लगातार वीडियो अपलोड करनी शुरू की और मुझे खुशी है कि आज 34 लाख से ज्यादा Subscribers का साथ मुझे मिला है; हालाँकि एक Teacher होने के नाते मेरे लिए ये ज्यादा मायने रखता है कि मेरे कितने Students सीखकर अपने जीवन में आगे बढ़ पायें।

In Oct 2016, I received an email from a student suggesting me to make video lectures too, to benefit students through visual material as well. I uploaded the first video on my YouTube channel (Spoken English Guru) on 3rd Nov 2016. Beginning was tough. I could gain only 200 subscribers in first 9 months. From Aug’17, I became regular in uploading videos. Now, it overwhelms me to have 3.4 million+ subscribers with me. However, as a teacher, what matters more to me is not the number of subscribers; but, the number of students who succeed in their lives.

मैंने May 2018 में Android App लाँच किया। आज 25 लाख से ज्यादा users इससे निःशुल्क अंग्रेज़ी सीख रहे हैं।
I launched an Android App in May’18. It has 2.5 Million+ users as of now, learning English for free.

15th August 2018 को मैंने अपनी एक और किताब “Spoken English Guru Daily use English Sentences” को लॉन्च किया।
On 15th August 2018, I launched one more title, i.e., “Spoken English Guru Daily use English Sentences”. 

आप सभी students/subscribers के प्यार और सहयोग के लिए बहुत-2 धन्यवाद। दिल से इंग्लिश सीखने का प्रयास करिए, आपको अपने जीवन में बहुत कुछ हासिल करना है।
Thank you so much for your love and support, my dear students. Give your 100% to English learning; you have to achieve a lot in your life.

Hope you loved this article. Your love and support is my motivation. – Aditya Rana

Just remember; be honest in your preparation and have patience. Don’t skip the lessons; or their respective practice exercises. Good luck!

    Hello Sir,
    When I was completely defeated because of campus interview rejection because my English communication was very bad and my confidence level was also down, just searching some videos, I saw one of your videos. So, I again charged up to try again. Still my PG have been completed and all campuses has gone. I haven’t selected any of one. My technical skills are very good instead of communication.
    After watching your video, I learnt a lot. Now I can communicate with confidence but there is a lot of mistakes in speaking to me. I am still learning.
    After 3 month, I have to go out of my city for getting good technical job. I hope in this three month I can correct my tiny little bit error. And I hope you also help me for that.
    Thanking you.

        मैं आपका शुरुआती स्टूडेंट्स हु जब आपके चैनल पर 90k subscriber थे, आपके इन मत्त्वपूर्ण प्रयासों से मुझे इंग्लिश सीखने में बहुत हैल्प मिली।
        मैं इतना ही कहना चाहूँगा कि आप सच्चे मायनों में हमारे hero हो, आप हमारी अंग्रेजी की वजह से हीन भावना आई थी उसको समूल नष्ट कर दी।।
        बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद आपको।।

I feel that laziness is the biggest enemy of one’s life I have experienced many times. laziness stops me from doing something big. on top of that, you never let your will power go off. you faced all obstacles firmly. You have become a source of inspiration for many. I wish you the best for your future endeavour.
