Farmer’s son brings laurels to J-K, secures 2nd rank in IES exam
Tanveer Ahmad Khan, a farmer's son from Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, has brought laurels to the Union Territory by securing the second rank in the prestigious Indian Economic Services (IES) examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
Hailing from the remote Nigeenpora Kund village -- about 80 kms from here -- in south Kashmir, Khan did primary schooling from Government Primary School, Kund, and later from Government High School Waltengoo, officials said.
Khan has been a bright student from the very beginning, secured third rank in University of Kashmir entrance test and got himself admitted in the post-graduate course in economics at Kashmir University, the officials said.
Continuing with his brilliance, he achieved another feat by securing Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) during his last year of the post-graduate programme, they said.
Khan, who achieved the feat in his maiden attempt only, remarks that it was a hard struggle, but he never lost hope.
“I worked very hard and considered my first attempt as my last attempt and in the end I achieved this feat,” he said.
While appreciating the government for initiating several educational reforms, he suggested there was a dire need to revamp the basic education system.
“Government has initiated various steps for educational reforms and we should also focus on other aspects like research centers in all colleges with full-fledged faculty and priority should also be given to other lesser opted subjects,” he said.
In his message to the youth of J-K, Khan said they should think out of the box and look for alternate career choices.
“The youth of J-K are brilliant who can excel in every field and they should look for alternate careers than the conventional ones,” he said.
