“You were suffering for past years”: IAS topper Tina Dabi’s cryptic post prompts fans to link gut-wrenching lines to failed marriage with husband Athar Aamir Khan


IAS topper Tina Dabi has never publicly spoken about the upheaval in her personal life involving husband Athar Aamir Khan, not even when reports emerged that the affable civil servant from Delhi had filed for a divorce with mutual consent. But, her latest cryptic posts have prompted her fans to link them to the traumatic experience that she has been going through in her marital life.

Tina shared her book reviews while highlighting the key passages of books. Lines highlighted by Tina talked about adversity in life and why one must never be dejected by the uncomfortable developments. One passage underlined by Tina read, “Don’t get dejected by the difficulty of it and you will succeed. Life has a surprising way of working out its problems. The only thing you have to do is have faith and keep at it.”

Another excerpt read, “Yes, things were hard at times but everything turned out to be all right in the end. And what is what matters, Moni. Everything will be all right in the end. If it isn’t, then it is not the end. ”

Sharing her post, Tina wrote, “This is a late post. I read a lot of books over the past couple of months. I have penned my thoughts on a few in this post. I have included excerpts that I found the best. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.”

Soon her fans began to link her writings to the civil servant’s personal experience. One wrote, “Ma’am ! If we deeply dig this whole thing directly relates to what you were suffering for past years . This way you are conveying how things were hard during yr marriage years. Yes ! This is a sane way to express and clr mind post Divorse also..and yes thanks for the books’ suggestions.

Both Tina and Athar exchanged wedding vows in 2018 soon after completing their training programme at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy for Administration in Mussoorie in Uttarakhand. Soon after tying the knot with Athar in 2018, Tina had updated her Instagram profile by proudly identifying herself as Tina Dabi Khan. Her bio had then described her as a “Delhiite, Kashmiri Bahu, IAS, in that order.”

But she decided to remove ‘Khan’ and the other description from her Instagram page in March this year triggering speculations that all was not well with the duo.
