IAS topper Tina Dabi Khan is known for her social media dominance and has often used the platform to keeps her fans abreast of her escapades. Such is her popularity on social media that the young IAS officer from Delhi has built a considerablly large fan base on Instagram within a year of taking up her posting as an IAS officer. Not too long ago, we saw a glimpse of acting skills when she teased her fans with a short boomerang video capturing her dramatic expressions, capable of giving heartache to her four-lakh plus fans on Instagram. Now the IAS topper’s fans are applauding her Rangoli with a Bollywood twist.
Last week, Tina gave us sneak peek at her Diwali preparations as he began preparing for the festival of lights. Dressed in a leaf green kurta while taking the help of some locals in Rajasthan in deciding for Diwali decorations, Tina embarked on her festival shopping.
Days later, Tina informed her fans on Instagram with a photo of a candle in a candle holder with several lit diyas (lamps) below. It was clear that the IAS topper had put in plenty of hard work in making what appeared to be a unique and exquisite piece of Diwali diya.
She didn’t stop here. Tina also posted a photo of another fabulous piece of creative work when she shared a lampshade decorated with marigold in a toran like shape.
Tina’s Diwali celebrations reached its culmination with the designing of the much-needed Rangoli, which is an integral part of the festival. In one video, Tina could be seen extending a helping hand to her IAS topper husband Aamir in preparation of Rangoli. But what made the design even more special was the music attached to the video. Tina chose the soulful rendition of Bol Do Na Zara by Armaan Malik and Amaal Mallik from the 2016 film Azhar starring Emraan Hashmi and Nargis Fakhri.
While posting the video, Tina simply wrote, “Festive feels.” But the choice of her deeply romantic song for the occasion signifies her deep love for husband Athar, who took to Instagram to wish everyone ‘Happy Diwali.’
Her creativity received instant approval from her fans. One fan wrote, “Love u both mam.” “Happy Diwali mam, my role model and big fan of you,” commented another user. Similar flattering comments followed from other users.
While Tina had secured the all India number one ranking in the UPSC exams in 2016, her husband Athar was the holder of the all India number two position the same year. Both fell in love during the training and got married last year. Later, both were posted in the same city, Bhilwara, in Rajasthan.
