The subsequent line of the page shared by Tina had the answer as it said, “Because the life in us savours that which has been cultivated by the life in another.”

Tina also shared a small video of her night out with family members including her IAS topper husband Athar Amir Khan. In the video, Tina could be seen dining out with Athar and other family members. Although she did not identify her family members in the video, a group of people could be seen sitting inside what looked like a restaurant along with Tina and Athar, who hails from Kashmir.


As for the book that Tina is currently reading, the page shared by the 25-year-old civil servant from Delhi had quite a moving message. It said, “All our food passes through the hands of a hundred people before it reaches us. By adopting this mindset as you take your meals, perhaps you will become aware of how fortunate you are.”


Meanwhile, it appears that Tina has also updated the bio of her Twitter account with motivational poetry by renowned poet Majrooh Sultanpuri. This is how it went, “main akela hi chala tha janib-e-manzil magar, log saath aate gae aur karvan banta gaya. (I set off towards my destination alone, people kept joining me and suddenly it turned into a huge caravan.)”

Earlier this month, Tina had surprisingly stopped her fans from commenting on a photo, where she was seen blowing a kiss.

Both Tina and her husband are currently posted in Bhilwara as SDMs.
