Baramulla, Dec 29: Bringing laurels to the valley, a 26-year-old youth, Syed Adil Zahoor from Hajibal village of Baramulla has qualified the Indian Statistical Services examination.
Adil has become the second person from Kashmir to qualify the ISS exam.
The first Kashmiri who has qualified the examination was Haji Altaf of Bandipora who qualified the exam in 2001 and is currently holding the position of Deputy Director General.
Adil is currently serving at the Block Development Office Qaziabad as Accounts Assistant. He cracked the ISS examination in his first attempt.
Adil, is a resident of Hajibal village that is some 20 kilometers away from main town Baramulla and is one of the villages identified by the Government of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir as a tourist destination.
Adil did his initial schooling at Middle School Hajibal and passed his 12th standard from Boys Higher Secondary School Baramulla. He holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Government Degree College Boys Baramulla.
He has done his Masters from the University of Kashmir and later on qualified the Junior Research Fellowship in 2020.
Aadil comes from a middle class family but the financial constraints did not deter him from dreaming big.
“My father, Syed Zahoor Ahmad works as a junior assistant in a private school here in Baramulla. When I was a student, my father used to earn 50 rupees as salary a month. Later on, it was 1500 per month. But the financial constraints during my studies didn't deter my studies as I was always encouraged by my family,” Syed Aadil told Rising Kashmir
He said that living in a remote village where there is a lack of basic facilities, especially in terms of the internet, transport and good schooling makes it very difficult for the students here.
“Students here have to go to other places to use the high speed internet, and have to travel on foot 20 kilometers for higher studies. Many times, I thought of dropping out and saying goodbye to studies but the support of my father encouraged me to keep going," he said.
Besides parents, Syed Aadil gave credit to his teachers specially Ali Mohammad Shah, Dr. Anwar Hassan, Dr. Tariq and Dr. Parvaiz for their unrelenting support and encouragement.
“My father and especially my teachers helped me a lot financially as well as emotionally,” he said.
Netizens were all praises for Adil and congratulated him for his feat.
In a message to youth of Jammu and Kashmir, Adil said that there is no substitute for hard work.
"There are no excuses, no substitute for hard work. Always keep a positive attitude and work hard towards your goal," he added.
