New Delhi: In Indian society, most girls are considered limited to marriage. If you have to do something, fulfill some dreams, then they are asked to fulfill before marriage, then later the householder has to handle it. Due to this fear, either the girls start living for themselves before getting married or they ask their parents for time to fulfill some dreams. But Annu Kumari of Chandigarh proved these beliefs wrong on the strength of her dedication and hard work.
Annu had dreamed since childhood that he had to become an IAS officer. But they got married before the dream came true. But Annu did not let spirits dominate him. Even after marriage, she did not forget her dream and after becoming a mother she not only accomplished it by working hard but today she has become an inspiration for others by becoming a topper.
Born in an ordinary family in Sonepat, Haryana, Annu was very good at reading. Family members were keen to read and teach Annu. But Annu could not fulfill the dream while staying in her maternal home, fulfilled it by visiting her in-laws. Annu shocked everyone by finishing second in the entire country in the 2017 UPSC examination.
