Srinagar: Three siblings from Doda district who lived without mobile phones have cracked JKAS exams.
The trio who said that they don’t possess mobile phones hail from far-off Bhaleesa village in Doda and are based in Jammu now. The results on the exam were declared on Thursday evening.
They were identified as Huma Anjum Wani, Ifra Anjum Wani and Suhail Ahmad Wani.
As per details available with the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Suhail who is younger to sisters has secured 111th rank and obtained 1055 points followed by Huma Anjum Wani having 117th rank with 1050.5 points and Ifra Anjum Wani having 143rd rank with 1034.5 points.
Siblings Suhail, Ifra and Huma told KNO that they started preparations together for JKAS from 2021.
“Whenever we had time, we were studying. We maintained consistency which is the key to success,” said Suhail.
He said they would study for 6-8 hours on a daily basis.
Ifra Anjum said that their mother often remains ill and she had to take care of her besides managing domestic issues giving her little time for preparation.
They said their optional subjects in the exam were political science and international relations.
“Everyone faces problems in life but we must learn how to overcome them. Youth have got involved in drug abuse and social networking sites which is main reason for failures. That is why we were away from phones even in today’s era,” they said.
The trio said they would use their mother for anything urgent.
Their father Munir Ahmad Wani, who was working as labourer in Baglihar project and now a contractor told KNO said that it is a very proud moment for him and all people of J&K as his children have qualified JKAS without any coaching.
He said that since their childhood, their aim was to qualify IAS or JKAS.
Suhail and Huma Anjum have pursued masters in Political Science while Ifra has done Msc physics.
He claimed that his children would access the internet on their laptop by using their mother’s phone—(KNO)
