The declaration of final results of the Uttarakhand Judicial Service Civil Judge (Junior Division) Examination, 2016 on Wednesday brought good news for Dehradun based Ms. Poonam Todi, who topped the exam.
With her father being an auto-rickshaw driver, Ms. Todi's achievement is being lauded throughout the country with congratulatory messages appreciating her hard work and perseverance continuously flowing in. Ms. Todi completed her M.Com from DAV (PG) College in Dehradun in 2010. This was her third attempt at the examination.
The youngster attributed her success to her family, who she calls her rock-solid support. Speaking to the Times of India, she said, “My parents never pressured me to join a job to supplement the family’s income. Instead they always encouraged me to study further, which is why I was able to complete my M.Com as well as law degrees.”
Her mother also beamed with pride, and was quoted as saying, “Poonam’s achievement is a message for all parents that daughters can be a family’s pride.”
