A visually impaired woman from Tamil Nadu, who is all set to become the first IFS officer with 100 per cent visual impairment, says she is raring to go around the globe representing India.

The 25 year-old NL Beno Zephine received orders from the Central government last week asking her to report within 60 days.

The literature graduate said she was excited and wanted to travel to Delhi as early as possible to take up her responsibility.

Zephine’s concern over issues mattering in daily life while at school, even as basic as saving water, turned out to be her inspiration to give a shot at public service commission exams.

And the one year wait after clearing the papers in 2014 turned to be fruitful with the External Affairs Ministry sending her the orders last week.

Zephine said she was told that the encouraging policy of the Narendra Modi’s government had helped in overcoming any possible procedural delays in her appointment.

“I was told that I was eligible for IFS (though) persons with 100 per cent visual impairment had not been given posts earlier,” a jubilant Zephine told PTI today, while thanking the Prime Minister.

She said she had been informed about possible postings both in India and abroad and that she was raring to go.

Zephine credits her parents for what she has achieved, saying her father took her wherever she wanted to go in pursuit of her dreams and managing to buy every other book for this purpose.

Her mother would assist her in studying the books, sometimes reading them aloud.

A probationary officer with State Bank of India, Zephine has a big list of well-wishers she wants to thank.

Besides Modi, this included Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Central Ministers Jitendra Singh (PMO) and Pon Radhakrishnan, among others.

She also thanked her employer SBI and Boominathan of the academy where she undertook coaching for civil service examination.

Zephine is now pursuing a PhD degree.

Breakthrough for women cricket in city: UT batswoman makes it to India ‘A’ squad

While cricketers like Kapil Dev, Ashok Malhotra, Yograj Singh, Chetan Sharma, Dinesh Mongia, Yuvraj Singh have emerged from Chandigarh, no woman cricketer has ever managed to hog limelight like Taniya has.

While he has been longing to see his son Yuvraj Singh don the national colours again, Thursday brought in good news for former India player-turned-coach Yograj Singh: One of his wards, Taniya Bhatia, earned a berth in the women’s India ‘A’ team that will take on the New Zealand eves in a one-day (ODI) warm-up match to be played next week at Bengaluru.

While cricketers like Kapil Dev, Ashok Malhotra, Yograj Singh, Chetan Sharma, Dinesh Mongia, Yuvraj Singh have emerged from Chandigarh, no woman cricketer has ever managed to hog limelight like Taniya has.

The 17-year-old wicket-keeper cum batswoman, who learnt her early cricket lessons at the academy at the DAV Senior Secondary School, Sector 8, has become the first woman from Chandigarh to make a national team. Known to be a hard task master, Yograj trained Taniya for three years and always believed that the lean-looking teenager would one day wear the Indian team jersey.
Taniya, who has been dominating the women cricket in the region representing Punjab for five years, managed to impress the national selectors, during the recently-held ODI tournament for Challengers Trophy at Mysore. Her innings of 67 runs for the India Green team against the India Blues was the highest individual knock by any batswoman in the tournament.

Speaking to Newsline, Taniya said she felt that this was a step closer to her dream of representing the national squad. “It is an amazing opportunity for a young cricketer like me to have got a chance to play in a match against the Kiwis, who are very formidable and play high-voltage cricket. I played the Challengers Trophy matches with belief and confidence, I am happy that the selectors showed confidence in me,” she added.

While the selectors have also announced probables for the main ODI series that starts on June 28, they have not named the squad for the T-20 games. The Kiwis are scheduled to play five ODIs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru followed by the three T-20s at Alur in Karnataka.

The selectors decision to not name the T20 squad is extra motivation for Taniya, who could make her debut if she shines in the warm-up match. “I will have to keep my nerves and concentrate on delivering the goods. I am just thinking of doing well in the warm-up match whatever happens after that will be a bonus,” said Taniya, who has passed her senior secondary exams from DAV Model School, Sector 15, Chandigarh.

“Taniya is a young cricketer, who has managed to attract eye-balls in the recently conducted Challengers Trophy. She has miles to go.

“I am hoping to see her blossoming in the coming years,” said former India cricketer and chief coach Shanta Rangaswamy about the Chandigarh-born cricketer. Her parents, Sanjay Bhatia (Central Bank of India employee) and mother Sapna Bhatia were the ones who introduced Taniya to the game. The youngster emerged as the highest run-scorer (227 runs and 10 dismissals in four two-day matches
