Furthermore, she received training at the judicial academy and attained the post of a Judge in the same court where her father once served tea.she is now ready to pronounce judgments and bring some justice to the world.
A modest girl tells Deccan Herald that she was not the only girl that tastes success and that there many others who shined despite financial crisis and hardships.Shruti said, “I always wanted to be associated with the legal profession. I wanted to be a judge. I sat for the examination and stood first in the SC category.” She made her dreams come and father proud.
