Sweeper fulfills dream, becomes police officer
Roshan Gudia cleared the Jharkhand Public Service Commission examination in his fourth attempt.

Ranchi: Through his sheer grit and determination, a young man working as a sweeper in Jharkhand has bagged a job as the Deputy Superintendent of Police after clearing the state public service examination.

Roshan Gudia, who works as a sweeper in a primary health centre of Simdega district, cleared the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) examination in his fourth attempt.

He is a resident of Karamtand village of Khuti district. His father, Soma Gudia, is a retired army man.

Since his childhood, Roshan wanted to become a police officer. He would study hard and did not let the initial setbacks deter him. He took up a job as sweeper two years ago, but did not give up on his dreams. He continued his education.

Today Roshan is a happy man. "My dream has been achieved," he said.

His mother, Sunila, is also happy with her son's achievement. Tears rolled down her face on hearing the news of her son being selected for a police officer's job.

Like Roshan, there are many other poor students in Jharkhand who have qualified as state level administrative officers.

Mukesh Mahuwa, the son of a rickshaw puller, has qualified as a deputy collector. Mukesh, a resident of Bundu block on the outskirts of Ranchi, used to play the drums during the marriage season to earn money. His father, Nimai Mahuwa, is a rickshaw puller.

Similarly, Krishan Kumar, the son of a driver, has been selected as a deputy collector. His father, Bhuneshwar Prajapati, works as a driver in Hazaribagh.

The result of the JPSC examination was announced on Sunday night. A total of 175 candidates qualified for different posts.
