It’s been nearly a year since 2016 IAS topper Tina Dabi Khan and the 2nd ranked topper from the same year, Athar Aamir Khan, tied the knot in lavish celebrations. From the day they got married, their social media posts have abundantly made it clear that the two have been madly in love with each other. However, seldom has Tina publicly expressed her feelings for her husband.
However, the Kashmiri bahu on Friday took to Instagram to announce just how proud she was of her husband from Jammu and Kashmir. This was after Athar, who was recently posted in Rajasthan as an SDO, posted a series of photos of his recent field trip. While posting the photos, Athar wrote, “Went to see the schools in the farthest part of my sub-division today. In our schools many things have improved yet we have a long long way to go.”
In the photos, Athar was seen interacting with the students affectionately. In other photos, he was seen having an intense conversation with locals, seemingly those who managed the affairs of the government school in the photo.
His photos evoked plenty of reactions from his followers with most admiring his humility and dedication to work. One user wrote, “he very picture that i needed for motivation. 😂 *yes, this is what i want to do*.. Keep doing such amazing social work and inshallah there will soon be a bigger better picture.🤗 Best wishes to you n tina di.” Another wrote, “Sir education system pr ziyada se ziyada dhiyan dene ki zaroorat hai thanks ki aap kisi school ka dora krne aaye.”
But, the most flattering comments came from Athar’s celebrity wife, Tina, who wrote, “So proud of you! Keep up the good work.”
Athar, who was working as an Assistant Secretary in the Union Ministry of Tourism on deputation, was appointed as the Sub-Divisional Officer for Badnor in Bhilwara in Rajasthan last month. This was just weeks after Tina received her first posting as the SDM for Bhilwara. With Athar arriving in the same district administration, both will be seen working together in future.
Just like his wife, Athar has hit the ground immediately after taking charge. Last month (see above), he had posted another set of photos as part of #SDMDiaries. Clearly, going by the response on social media, both Tina and Athar are inspiring millions with their dedication to public-spirited work.
