Utilities could be home calls for Shivia Hangloo
âI aspire to be a transparent interface between the people and the government. I want to serve people wherever I have an opportunity with honesty and dedication. If I get my country of origin, it will be wonderful, more like a dream come true, âsaid Shivia in Kashmir by phone from Chandigarh.
His family is originally from the Hangalgund area in Anantnag district in southern Kashmir and currently resides in Roop Nagar in Jammu.
Shivia did her initial education at DPS Jammu and completed her high school education in Chandigarh.
She took her B Tech from PEC, Chandigarh, where she is currently with her parents.
âMy father, Rakesh Hangloo, is the managing director of SBI here and my mother is an employee of LIC. I was born in Jammu so there are no personal memories as such. Unfortunately, I have only been to Kashmir as a visitor. But, yes, I am emotionally linked to my homeland, âshe says.
âThe decision to opt for the public service was well thought out. I took the motivation from my grandfather Durga Nath Hangloo who once aspired to be part of the public service but was unable to do so due to difficult circumstances, âsays Shivia.
âDuring my degree, I worked with a private company in Bangalore to do my internship and simultaneously work with an NGO at my college. Then I compared work in the private sector and the social sector. It was then that I leaned towards this area. I realized that I wanted to work where I could have the opportunity to connect more with the company. That’s how the public service turned out to be my calling, âshe says.
