“I realized that the life ahead of me was more important to me.”
It was said that Shireen Shahana, who appears to the world to be a wheelchair-bound and ambulatory girl, has set an example for many by cracking the Indian Civil Services Examinations.
It is one of the toughest competitive exams not only in India but worldwide with a pass rate of just 0.2%.
Shireen Shahana’s parents worked as daily wage workers and were married to a man who abused her. Education was the only way out of these situations.
But the day after her Masters exam in 2017, she accidentally fell off her roof. This left her almost completely paralyzed. According to the newspaper Express News, her sister Amina says that after the death of her father, there was an accident (with Shireen). His memory was also weakened by the fall.
His hand was unable to hold a pen. In such a case, clearing civil service exam seems like a dream.
He was completely bedridden for a year and a half. After that, her health improved so much that she was able to use a wheelchair.
But even then, he did not lose sight of his destination and cleared the Junior Research Fellowship (NCT-JRF) exam, which is required for a person who wants to teach at the college level in India.
He told the newspaper Indian Express that after the accident, he learned to accept himself and his life.
