Dr. Sandeep Singh, M.A. Punjabi, M.A. Journalism, M.A. Law, Women’s Studies, and a Ph.D., sells vegetables on the streets of Amritsar. With such an impressive academic acumen, he sells vegetable on Amritsar streets from his cart with a smile on his face. He recently gained fame as a post on X by Punjabi Journalist Gagandeep Singh highlighting his status went viral.

 

“Ph.D. Sabzi Wala - Dr. Sandeep Singh, holding degrees in M.A. Punjabi, M.A. Journalism, M.A. Law, Women’s Studies, and a Ph.D., is compelled to sell vegetables on the streets of Amritsar. Despite dedicating 10 years to Punjabi University as a Contractual Professor of LLM, he couldn’t secure a permanent job. Due to financial instability, he chose to sell vegetables in his hometown, Amritsar” Gagandeep posted on X.

 

When asked on why he chose to sell vegetables he claims that he is aware of his abilities and acumen. He has worked hard to achieve his degrees and has no regrets nor shame about his employment status. He also stated his dismay on the interview process stating that the interviewers usually have a predetermined decision which deems the rest of the process a mere formality.

 

Assuring the younger generations currently pursuing their studies, he says that all our destinies are unique. There’s no need to feel dismayed about their futures. He has spent 11 years as a contractual professor at the Punjabi University but couldn’t secure a permanent position. He left after being disheartened at the politics that took place in the campus.

 

He says that he has spent countless sleepless nights and has worked very hard for his degrees but he is content with selling vegetables.

 

On social media, the public had mixed reactions to the post. When some users commented on the sorry state of Dr Sandeep Singh, some questioned his job as a vegetable seller since he has many qualifications to apply for better jobs. Besides, some users commented on the situation in Punjab, stressing on the lack of job opportunities. Unemployment is a key issue faced by the country and Punjab is no exception in this regard. In every election, political parties promises job to the unemployed young people when they came to power yet they remain only as hollow assurances.
