When Tina Dabi topped the civil services exams in 2016, she had come across as a reclusive girl, reluctant to face TV cameras. In little over two years time, that shy girl girl has now become one of the most loved and followed civil servants on social media platforms.
IAS topper Tina Dabi is fast turning out to be a star in her own right and it has nothing to do with her excelling in the civil services exams or her being recently conferred with the President’s Gold Medal.
The IAS topper in 2016 has built a sizeable fan base on Instagram, where she sporadically shares updates on whats going on in her life. Her Instagram page really became active during her recent trip to London with husband and All India ranked 2 of the same year, Athar Aamir Khan.
Even though both had preferred home cadres of Haryana and Jammu and Kashmir respectively, they both ended up getting Rajasthan cadres. However, this did not appear to affect Tina, who recently joined the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises in the Centre’s Narendra Modi government as an Assistant Secretary.
Her husband Athar joined the Ministry of Tourism in the central government as an Assistant Secretary.
Tina on Wednesday posted two close-up photos of herself on Instagram, where she now has more than 1,71,000 followers. Tina’s caption said that she was in Indore in Madhya Pradesh. She did not, however, explain whether her trip to Madhya Pradesh was work-related or personal.
In the first photo, Tina is seen attired in a simple yet classy suit. She looked every bit elegant as she smiled at the camera. The second photo is a close-up of the first. Reacting to the first photo, Tina’s fans agreed in unison that her smile was infectious as they commented with ‘Smile is the beauty of urs mam,’ and ‘apki muskan bohut e sundar hain’ sic comments. One user in particular complimented the IAS topper for her glowing skin. He wrote, “Please make a your daily skin care routine video mam ? coz u r prettiest.”sic
Both the photos of Tina also evoked reactions from husband Athar, who commented on her close-up photo with an ‘Authentic pic’ comment; while reacting to the first photo, Athar wrote, “Awesome.’
A day later, Tina posted a third photo in the same attire but with an inspiring Urdu couplets, Main akela hi chala tha jaanibe manzil magar, log saath aate gaye aur karwaan banta gaya. (I had embarked towards my destination all alone, but other people joined along the way and it turned into a convoy.”
Tina’s photos have received more than 35,000 and 45,000 likes respectively. Not so long ago, when Tina posted a series of photos from her trip to Ellora, her smitten fans had quickly asked to share her beauty tips with them. Responding to a fan, Tina had said, “Hahaha, thank you! The weather here, at present, is so soothing and pleasant that one looks good spirited even after the day’s work.”
