Everyone has their struggle story and someone who has seen struggles will surely see success. We can always hear some inspiring struggle story around ourselves, we see how people living around us face all the problems and succeed in life. Here we have brought you a new inspiring story from a small village of Rajasthan. A girl fulfilling all her duties is set to become a judge now. Sonal Sharma daughter of a milkman her day begins at 4am, helping her father in milking cattle, cleaning the cow shed, collecting dung and even distributing milk at times. Now, this 26-year-old, who has received three gold medals for topping in BA, LLB and LLM examinations, will be posted as a first-class magistrate in a sessions court in the state after a year’s training. Sonal, the second of four children of milkman Khyali Lal Sharma, has qualified to become a judge in her first attempt at the Rajasthan Judicial Service (RJS) examination of 2018.
The exam results were declared in November 2019 but Sonal was placed in the waiting list. As some of the selected candidates did not join the service, the state government issued an order on Wednesday asking the wait-listed candidates to join.We were confident of Sonal’s selection. But she fell just one mark short in the general cutoff list and was put in the waiting list,” said her mentor Satyendra Singh Sankhla.Later, she got to know that seven candidates who got selected had not joined the RJS-2018. Sonal then filed a writ with the Rajasthan high court in September this year.
On Wednesday, she got the high court notification to join on one of the seven seats that had remained vacant.
Sonal never attended a coaching centre or received tuitions, as her father could not afford it. She cycled to college early and spent hours in the library making notes as she could not afford to buy the expensive books. On December 22, Sonal had received the gold medals at the MohanLal Sukhadia University convocation.
“My parents have worked hard to provide the best education to us. My father took numerous loans to meet the expenses in educating us but never complained. Now I can give them a comfortable life,” said Sonal.
Sonal, while helping her father in his business, studied at a corner of the cow shed while she prepared for the RJS exams. Her study table was made of empty oil cans on which she read and wrote.
“Most of the time my chappals would be smeared with the cow dung. When I was in school, I felt ashamed to tell my classmates that I was from a milkman’s family. But now, I feel proud of my parents,” she said.
This is one of the stories we have for today but in India we have these types of stories everywhere. It takes lots of patience and effort to reach a level where someone wants to be. People who consistently keep working surely get success. As it is said, work in silence lets your success make noise.
