Roke Tujhko Aandhiyan Ya Zameen Aur Aasman
Paayega Jo Lakshya Hai Tera
Lakshya To Har Haal Mein Paana Hai...

This song ideally suits this women who is a true fighter in herself. She never let any of her difficulties to stop her from her ambitions.

Let me introduce you to her, she is Pranjil Patil who is 30-year-old India's first visually impaired woman IAS officer. She gave her UPSC exam in the year 2017 and secured the 124th rank. On 28 May(this year), she took the seat as the Assistant Collector of Ernakulam district in Kerala. For a year as part of her training period, Pranjal Patil will hold the position of the Assistant Collector.

She hails from Ulhasnagar, Maharashtra, Pranjal Patil lost her vision at the age of 6. Yet, she lost her vision but the desire to do something enormous in her life never declined, and one day she did it!!
It was the year 2016, and she was just 26 and it was then, when Pranjal decided to prepare for the UPSC exams.

And in the first attempt she did it. She secured all-India rank of 773.

After such good rank, she was offered a job in Indian Railway Accounts Service (IRAS), BUT as her vision was not weak, she was not deemed fit for the job.

This decision by IRAS was a huge setback to her and to prove herself again... she started her preparation, she worked double harder this time and she scored 124th rank in UPSC 2017.

What's more fascinating is, she didn't take any coaching classes for her UPSC exam as Patil thought - it would build an unnecessary pressure on her. She solved only mock papers and attended discussions.

Patil took charge as the Assistant Collector of Ernakulam on May 28 and their she got a warm welcome in Kochi.

"Considering I arrived just three days back, I am yet to interact with a lot of people in Kochi; but I did notice right away that because Kochi is tourist friendly, everyone is very accustomed to receiving new people in the city."

Pranjal Patil, you fought all odds and became an inspiration for many of us. Respect!
