New Delhi, May 12: Sky is the limit for this young Political Science student from Lady Sriram College. Tina, who topped the civil services this year has becomethe pride pf her family...yet again. Her mother, Himali tells the media, "Tina is my hero. She worked exceptionally hard, and I wish I can tell you how proud I am. She is my hero."

Tina, meanwhile says, "I have been preparing for a long time. When I was in the eleventh standard, I decided I wanted to crack the civics."


"I had a strategy, and I focussed on the key subject that will get me through. And that's why I majored in Political Science in my bachelor's degree," she said.

Speaking about her routine, Tina said that after topping her college, she studied for a year at Wajiram Coaching Centre. However, studying is not all she does. She paints Magubani paintings, sings, debates and was also a part of mock United Nations.

She realised how important gender equality was in her college. And therefore, she chose Haryana as her state cadre. "Haryana is an interesting state. Despite the development all around, it lags in some specific social indicators, the most important being gender equality. My time at LSR has taught me the important of equality for both sexes," she said.

Her father, sister and cousins are equally proud and consider her as an idol for everyone.
