Rajouri boy emerges as inspiration for youth after qualifying for KAS in first attempt – education
A young boy from Kashmir, Gouhar Arzoo Chaand, who excelled at Kashmir Administrative Services (KAS) 2018, has emerged as an inspiration to hundreds of young people in the valley.
Hailing from the remote mountainous area of Thanna Mandi Tehsil in the Rajouri district, Gouhar placed 29th on his first attempt at the highly competitive exam without the help of a coach.
Gouhar finished his elementary education from Government High School Behrote and then studied at Government Degree College, Thanna Mandi for his graduation.
“Despite finishing my bachelor of science, I chose sociology as my optional subject for entry to KAS because I was interested in reading about social issues in my environment,” Chaand told ANI.
Now, many students visit Gouhar for study tips and ways to pass competitive exams like the KAS without training. Gouhar’s cousins and friends also follow his advice for studies and want to excel like him in the future.
“We firmly believe that nothing is possible without the blessings of the Almighty. So we are grateful for all the blessings. My brother has put in a lot of work and perseverance in his studies. I am very proud. He studied at a government school and qualified for the KAS without any training, ”Arzoo Chand, Gouhar’s sister, told ANI.
“Any student who needs Gouhar’s guidance and help is welcome. I hope my brother can inspire the children of the valley to be successful in their academic pursuits, ”he added.
“We are very inspired by Gouhar’s academic achievements. We continue to follow their advice and learn by observing their study patterns, ”said Saima, Gouhar’s cousin.
Gouhar’s parents are proud of their son and appreciated his talent and hard work in qualifying for KAS on his first try.
“It was my childhood dream to qualify for the Kashmir Administrative Services, but I couldn’t do it. However, my son has accomplished this feat and I am proud of him. We are grateful to the Almighty, ”Farooq Chaand, Gouhar’s father, told ANI.
