Asha Kandara — a woman sweeper of Jodhpur Municipal Corporation — recently cleared the Rajasthan Administrative Service examination.

While Asha had always dreamt of becoming an IAS officer, she could not appear for the exam as she had crossed the age bar. Now, she will be joining the administrative services as a deputy collector.

According to The Week, Asha got married in 1997, but the marriage soon failed. She separated from her husband eight years ago and single-handedly raised her two children and managed to complete her graduation.

According to Financial Express, the 40-year-old appeared for the civil services exam in 2018. However, the results got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and she was left with no choice but to find an alternate source of income to make ends meet.

She took up the job of a sweeper with the municipal corporation.
