IAS topper Tina Dabi Khan is arguably the most popular civil servant to have come out of one of the toughest competitive exams in recent times. The young IAS officer has become a heartthrob of sorts by routinely setting social media on fire with her adorable posts. The officer, who now identifies herself as a Kashmiri bahu (daughter-in-law), is now driving her fans crazy with her latest mehndi (henna) design with a cute short video. Not only are her fans fervently commenting on her mehndi design, but also her wink and ‘cute dimple’ noticed in the video.
Tina did not write any caption while posting the video. All she was seen doing was flaunting her latest mehndi design. As she displayed both sides of her hand with beautiful design, she also winked at her fans. And, as expected, this cute video was enough to drive her fans crazy.
One fan ‘the_may_princess’ wrote, “So beautiful mehendi? and those tiny dimples in ur cheecks were so cute that i watched this again for 4 more times.” User ‘chako_junior’ detected a similarity with the two-stage exams of the IAS as he wrote, “Both sides of that hand remind me of prelims questions and identical twins.” There were others who sought to know why she had not included her IAS topper husband Athar Amir Khan’s name in her mehndi design. “Can’t see Athar sir’s name in that design.” commented one user. Another user, Panwar Pritam, asked, “Ma’am, you also wink?” User Vijay Kumar borrowed a line from film Simmba starring Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh to write, “Aankh mare ladki aankh mare.”
Earlier this month, Tina had travelled to Kashmir to celebrate Eid with her in-laws. While in Kashmir, she shared a photo with her husband and a child. This had triggered a debate on whether it was time for the IAS topper couple to start a family.
Tina, the IAS topper in 2016, and her husband Athar, the All India 2nd rank holder in the same year, had fallen in love soon after their results were declared. Both decided to get married during their training period with their wedding functions being attended by top politicians and bureaucrats last year.
