Kartika Gehlot, the 23-year-old daughter of a high court judge's driver, cleared the Rajasthan Judicial Services exam and secured the 66th rank.
Karthika had graduated with a law degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi earlier this year and had been eager to don the judicial black robes.
She was unable to enroll in offline classes because of Covid-19 pandemic so she chose online coaching through the Utkarsh app, which helped her pass a state exam that is considered tough to crack.
Despite the delay in classes and exam schedules being thrown into a quandary by the pandemic, Kartika was focussed on achieving her goals and went about preparing for these exams.
She points out that classes were accessible at all times of the day, thanks to the Utkarsh app which provided her with quality content to excel in the examination. This, according to Kartika helped her a great deal in preparing for the exams.
Talking about this achievement, Dr. Nirmal Gehlot, the CEO and Founder of Utkarsh Classes and Edutech said, “The judiciary is the bedrock of the democratic system. It needs sharp and smart people like Kartika to ensure that justice is delivered to everyone.”
WORD FROM KARTIKA’S FATHER
"She used to occasionally see me go to work and drive key judicial officers to the court. At the young age of 12, she had said that she will wear the black coat of the judicial officer soon,” says Rajendra Gehlot, Kartika’s father.
“Since then, she has been completely focused on achieving her dream. Her mother's efforts in inspiring her and offering support by all means also deserve special mention,” he added.
