Ranchi: Through his sheer grit and determination, a young man working as a sweeper in Jharkhand has bagged a job as Deputy Superintendent of Police after clearing the state public service examination.
Roshan Gudia, who works as a sweeper in a primary health centre of Simdega district, cleared the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) examination in his fourth attempt.
He is a resident of Karamtand village of Khuti district. His father, Soma Gudia, is a retired army man.
Since his childhood, Roshan wanted to become a police officer. He would study hard and did not let the initial setbacks deter him. He took up a job as sweeper two years ago, but did not give up on his studies, or hope.
Today Roshan is a happy man. "My dream has been achieved," he said.
His mother, Sunila, is also happy with her son`s achievement. Tears rolled down her face upon hearing the news of her son being selected for a police officer`s job.
Like Roshan, there are many other poor students in Jharkhand who have qualified as state level administrative officers of Dy SP rank.
Mukesh Mahuwa, the son of a rickshaw puller, has qualified as a deputy collector. Mukesh, a resident of Bundu block on the outskirts of Ranchi, used to play the drums during the marriage season to earn money. His father, Nimai Mahuwa, is a rickshaw puller.
Similarly, Krishan Kumar, the son of a driver, has been selected as a deputy collector. His father, Bhuneshwar Prajapati, works as a driver in Hazaribagh.
The result of the JPSC examination was announced Sunday night. A total of 175 candidates qualified for different posts.
