The retirement of peon Sumitra Devi in Ramgarh, Jharkhand on Monday was a special occasion, not just for her but locals also. It rarely happens when people come to attend the farewell ceremony of a retiring peon. But Sumitra Devi was no ordinary peon. With hard work and struggle, she ensured that her three sons studied well. Her dreams came true when all her three sons became successful.

Sumitra’s elder son Virendra Kumar is a railway engineer, her second son Dhirendra Kumar is a doctor and her third son Mahendra Kumar is now the district collector of Siwan in Bihar. Even as her sons became so successful, Sumitra didn’t leave her fourth class job at CCL township in Rajrappa. She continued working, inspiring other women and retired as a proud woman, reports Hindi daily Dainik Jagaran.

On Monday, her three sons attended Sumitra’s farewell function. While the mother got emotional seeing her three sons together, Sumitra’s colleagues felt proud of working with her. During the event, chief guest Dhirendra Kumar offered her a shawl and flower bouquet. He also praised Sumitra’s long tenure and good works done by her. Dhirendra said that retirement is a part of life but it becomes an emotional occasion. The honesty and dedication with which Sumitra Devi has worked are inspiring, he said.

Sumitra’s sons also shared the secrets of their success and how their mother worked hard to give them a good education. They said that all three of them decided to something good in their lives after seeing the mother’s struggle. Mahendra Kumar said that no job is difficult in life. Everything becomes possible with honest hard work.

        Great for the care she took. But do you think the stupid caste system did not help her kids? I read they are from SC and so reservation effect came into play.

                                If you wish to compete China and stan it is in our interest to make all men or women from any community self capable which was not be possible without supporting those people ...with less resources,guidance etc ......Making one organ left to fail will ultimately failure the w body .....And remember ...The general candidate were well aware about the notification and the seat allocation system...It's cowardly to say that u got seat becoz of reservation..yes these are poor people and they need reservations But you on the other hand.....from good family background and well surrounded with educated and economically viable people.....If you have caliber why then you failed to get seat in your own general quota ..... General also have their seats reserved for them .... those SC STs are not invading your seats.....??? Blaming others doesn't going to hide ue incapabilities....Remember that.

                                  While leaving and sting a w community on their own won't do good to this country either.Putting cloth on your eyes and glorifying the false truth about Indian social structure/culture just not going to make any good ....Surviving on low resources is way to difficult than just by saying derogatory remarks....
