9. One interesting thing about this year’s UPSC result is that all Top three candidates belong to the difference religious background. Tina belongs to a Hindu family. The second rank holder Aamir Ul Shafi Khan is from a Muslim family and the third rank holder Jasmeet Singh Sandhu is from Punjab and belongs to a Sikh family. It’s mere a coincidence but this result for 2015 has surely reflected the genuine soul of Indian secularism.

10. Now the last thing about her is  an optional, unverified yet interesting information. She is an adorable and beautiful woman but she is still single 🙂 as per this blog post, She is not committed to anyone till now and not even looking for any committed relationship at this moment. If you are even little aware about UPSC exams , you must be knowing about the hard work and the level of commitment it demands to excel and hence why she had no time for these boyfriend-girlfriend things.

  1. It was a nice article but I was expecting more about her preparation strategy. What I personally feel forums like blog or social media should avoid talking about cast and religion. When we are celebrating success of any one we should discuss efforts. Slowly we would be able to finish all these things from our society only by ignoring these issues.
