In a Court where her Dad sells tea, Daughter is now a Judge

Children are known by Parent’s identity but The proudest thing you can give your parents is when they are known by your identity… it takes a lot of hard work, dedication and discipline to create your own identity which your family can say with proud She/He is “MY” Daughter/Son !.


23-year-old Shruti from the small town of Nakodar in Punjab’s Jalandhar district cleared the Punjab Civil Services (Judicial) exam in her first attempt. After a year of training, she will join a Jalandhar court as a judge.

What makes her success remarkable is the fact that her father, Surinder Kumar, has been selling tea in the same court complex all his life. Little did the proud father know that one day his daughter would walk through the doors of the same court as a judge.

After getting a degree in law from Guru Nanak Dev University in Jalandhar, Shruti studied for a master’s degree in law from Punjab University, Patiala. In an interview with Deccan Herald, Shruti said, “I always wanted to be associated with the legal profession. I wanted to be a judge. I sat for the examination and stood first in the SC category.”

Victory comes to those who never give up despite all the hardships and struggles !
