Thirty-one-year-old Shalika Navodani of Belwood Estate in Galaha graduated from the Buddhist and Pali University in 2013. Navodani, a mother of two boys, today assists her husband in cattle farming and her Bachelor of Arts certificate could be seen hanging on one of the wall of their wattle and daub house. Her numerous attempts to secure a job by sitting for a variety of exams and applying for vacancies have not borne fruit.

“It was my husband who paid for my higher studies from whatever he earned from cattle farming. I’m not giving up. I want to help him in anyway I can. I may not be able to help him with my education but I can help him in his occupation,” Navodani said.  She said she hung her degree certificate on one of the outside walls because of the pain she is in and not because she wanted to belittle her achievement.

    We're always in such a hurry to give up when things are bad. Be patient. Trust. When you least expect it, something great will come along

    With your education which included analytical skills of looking at situations and getting good value , hopefully both you and your husband can make headway in his cattle farming ..you apply your ability , though it may look as if it has no direct bearing on your husbands work A basic degree would not make you a good teacher , for she or he needs professional training to motivate kids ,,so you apply your knowledge and your husbands skills and make a go of it .Wish you all success ,..i have followed the success of science graduates in the field of culinary arts where they looked at work differently and improved the texture and flavour of food ...
