Srinagar, Aug 5: Like other toppers of Combined Service Examination -2011, 26- year- old Arshi Rasool believes that the lone mantra of her success was hard work.
Arshi secured 9th rank in CSE examination, results of which were declared by Public Service Commission on last Friday. Hailing from Moominabad locality of south Kashmir’s Islamabad (Anantnag) town, Arshi says that “even if you are intelligent, you have to work hard and I was able to achieve the feat only due to vigorous studies for 10-12 hours.”
“My success would not have been possible without the support of my parents and teachers,” she says.
Arshi, daughter of a vet, Dr Ghulam Rasool Shah and teacher Dilshada Jabeen, says that cracking civil service examination was her dream from childhood.
“ Even, when I was pursuing LLB , I appeared in civil service examination and cleared both Prelims and Mains examination, but I was declared ineligible for last round as I had not completed my graduation by then,” Arshi, who is presently, pursuing LLM at Jammu University, told Greater Kashmir.
Pertinently, after completing her 10+2 examination from Islamabad (Anantnag), Arshi did LLB from KC Law
College Jammu. Arshi has a word for youth of Valley. “We can compete with the best brains in the world but there should be motivation to succeed irrespective of all odds.”
“Firstly, I thank almighty Allah, family members and all well wishers for my success. This time I appeared for CSE and scored 1353 marks with 9th rank. Proper strategy, hard work, and patience paid dividends. I made books my friends and they proved loyal.”
