A resident of Nakodar town of Punjab, Surinder has worked as a tea seller all his life. His 23-year-old daughter, Shruti, passed the Punjab Civil Services (Judicial) Examination in the first attempt, and topped in the SC category. After finishing her training at the judicial academy for a year, she is now set to serve as a judge. She completed her graduation from Guru Nanak Dev University, and went on to study law from Punjab University.
“I always wanted to be associated with the legal profession. I wanted to be a judge. I sat for the examination and stood first in the SC category,” Shruti told Deccan Herald.
The locals felicitated Shruti for this achievement. Like many fathers, Surinder Kumar also knew that his daughter would achieve something remarkable in her life, but he had never thought that she would get such a respectable position at the same place where he had been selling tea for many years now.
