The daughter of a tea seller in Madhya Pradesh has been selected into Indian Air Force’s flying branch after she cleared the interview on her sixth attempt. Aanchal Gangwal is among 22 selected from 6 lakh candidates who gave the entrance.
She has been receiving congratulatory messages from all over ever since her selection. In a message on Twitter, chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had congratulated her. A few days ago woman and child development minister Archana Chitnis visited her home and feted her.
Her father, Suresh Gangwal who runs a tea stall at the Neemuch bus stand stands a proud man today, but stood behind her daughter’s dream. “Now everyone in the area knows about my “Namdev tea stall” and I feel very happy when people come and congratulate me.”
