Chandigarh, November 28

In testimony to his boundless passion for knowledge, 65-year-old Pakistani man, Dilawar Khan, has etched his name in history by shattering societal norms and enrolling in Class 1 at Government Primary School, Khongai.

His extraordinary decision has earned him accolades, with the school administration applauding his commitment to lifelong learning and recognising the positive effect it is set to have on society.

Hailing from a financially-challenged household in Dir Upper, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Dilawar was forced to prioritise supporting family over pursuing education. However, the passage of time has not dimmed his childhood dream. Determined to complete his education at an age when many contemplate retirement, Dilawar is challenging both familial responsibilities and societal expectations.

His story serves as a beacon of inspiration, particularly for those who, due to personal reasons, may have had to leave their studies or postpone them. Dilawar’s journey encourages the pursuit of knowledge as a lifelong endeavour proving that it is never too late to embrace education and defy the constraints imposed by age and circumstances.

Netizens on Instagram have taken note of Dilawar’s courageous step, showering him with cheers and admiration for his resilience.
