It is very well said that success comes to those who do the hard work. Without strong determination and dedication towards your goal, it seems almost next to impossible to achieve the dreams that you have in your life. And this 22-year old boy Hasan Safin has proved that. He became the youngest IPS officer of India after facing lots of struggle. Scroll down to read his inspiring story and to seek some motivation for yourself-
As we all know Civil Service is one of the toughest exams in the country and no one could crack without good preparation. Most of the candidates are willing to give this examination so that they can easily join the administration services which will help them to bring a positive change in society.
Hasan Safin also lived the same dream and worked very hard to crack the exam. He became the youngest IPS officer of India by qualifying the UPSC Civil Services Exam previous year with a rank of 570. Now he will be joining Jamnagar district as the Assistant Superintendent of Police on coming December 23, 2019.
He is a son of Diamond Mine Worker
He belongs to the small village Kanodar in Palanpur, Gujarat. His parents work in a diamond mine unit who could hardly earn and meet his son’s education needs. Even his mother used to cook chapatis in nearby restaurants to earn some extra money for him to support his higher studies.
In an interview, he told, “There were times when we had to go to bed without having food”.
He wanted to be an IAS but could not get through
In a telephonic conversation with TOI, Safin said, “I appeared again but could not clear the exam. Hence, I decided to pursue my career as an IPS officer and will sue this opportunity to serve my country”.
