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.”
