Nazrul Islam Molla was a student of Sikkim Government Law College, Gangtok. Nazrul’s excellent academic performance and friendly demeanour quickly earned him admiration from amongst his teachers and peers. He has consistently been amongst the top two ranks in his batch. A reward for his commitment and brilliance in his academic pursuits came in his 2nd year when the Chief Minister of Sikkim awarded Nazrul a laptop as a token of appreciation.
In addition to his academic achievements, Nazrul is also active in sports on campus, especially in football and cricket and captained the college football team. He is also a writer, often penning down short stories and poetry. Nazrul’s involvement with IDIA is not only as a scholar, but also as a member of IDIA’s volunteer team, as a Team Leader of the IDIA North East Sub-Chapter (Sikkim).
However, life has not been easy for this bright scholar from a village in the Sundarbans in West Bengal. His father was a vegetable farmer earning around INR 4,000 per month when Nazrul joined us as a trainee. Nazrul was about to cease his education and join his father in this vocation, before IDIA spotted him and recognized his potential.
