How Sandeep Kaur, a peon's daughter scored success in UPSC exam
Thursday, 13th May 2010
Sandeep Kaur's visits as a young girl to the office of her father's boss had steeled her resolve to be on the other side of the table that her father served.
Her father Ranjit Singh was a peon, and worked in the office of the sub-registrar of the Revenue department, cleaning away the used glasses, cups, dustbins etc.
On Thursday, Kaur's dream came true when she ranked 138th in the open merit list of the All India Civil Services Examinations. A civil engineer from Punjab Engineering College (PEC), Kaur is from Ramdasia scheduled caste. She hopes to better her rank in the reserved category list yet to be declared.
