Tina Dabi Khan on Friday celebrated her birthday amidst her hectic commitment as the newly-appointed SDM for Bhilwara in Rajasthan. This was her first birthday after receiving her full-fledged posting as an IAS officer.
Her husband, also an IAS topper from the same year when Tina secured the all India number one ranking in the civil services exams, took to Instagram to post some of the memorable photos of both of them. The photos posted by Athar also had a heartfelt message for his wife. He wrote, “A very happy birthday to the most amazing person in my life!! May your every day and every moment ahead be filled with joy, happiness and love.”
During their training, both Tina and Athar spent plenty of time together while travelling across India and abroad. Some of the photos shared by Athar also included their time together while travelling. One photo in particular was seemingly from their wedding, which took place earlier this year.
While Athar is still on deputation in the ministry of tourism as an Assistant Secretary, Tina has swung into action in her new role as Bhilwara’s SDM. She is currently working on pushing the SVEEP programme of the Election Commission to raise awareness among people about voting. Rajasthan goes to polls on 7 December and Tina has taken upon herself to increase the voters’ participation in her district.
Speaking to Janta Ka Reporter earlier this week, she had said,”The experience of working as an SDM has been brilliant. The feeling of working amongst the common people is great. It gives me immense satisfaction when I am able to solve people’s problems. My top priority right now is to bring as many people to polling booths as possible for the upcoming assembly elections.”
Tina had married Athar this year and added ‘Khan’ in her surname later.
