How a Village Woman Became a Police Officer?

Aarati Hulle, Police Sub Inspector
Aarati Hulle, Police Sub Inspector

Recently I visited my native place Samdoli, near Sangli. There I came to know that a young lady from Maalwaadi, a nearby village was selected as a Police Sub Inspector in Maharashtra Police. That was an interesting story of determination and struggle in very adverse circumstances. As her village was just 10 Kilo Meters away from my village, I decided to meet her. I would like to share about her struggle and achievements here, which she shared with me.

Her name is Mrs. Aarati. Her mother is a vegetable seller, who lives in a small slum-like house in a chawl at Sangli. Aarati's father was expired when she was in 12th Standard. In 2005, Aarati was married to Pradeep Hulle, a farmer from Maalwadi. His financial condition was not good, and a sad thing happened. The village was affected by a dreadful flood. The family suffered from heavy losses. But in spite of this, Pradeep Hulle encouraged Aarati to study further. Accordingly, she completed her degree course in Bachelor of Arts externally.

Pradeep was impressed by Aarati's determination and brilliancy. He suggested her to appear for MPSC (Maharashtra Public Service Commission) exams. Accordingly she started to study for this competitive examination by buying used books from market. Without joining any class and without anybody's guidance, she successfully passed preliminary exams of MPSC. This gave her a great confidence and she prepared herself for further exams. Then she appeared for the main examination. As she was confident about her success in this examination, she prepared for physical examination too.

At that time Mumbai police was recruiting female Police Constables. Aarati appeared for this recruitment and was selected for the post of constable. Now it was turn of her physical training.

It was hard for her to live in Mumbai because of her poor financial sources. She spent her training days by eating Jhunaka Bhakar, a popular food in poor people of Maharashtra.

In the last days of training, the results of MPSC exams were declared and she was successful again. She was selected for Police Sub Inspector's training and then posted as a PSI at Mumbai.

In this period of her preparation for MPSC exams, and her selection as PSI, no one from her village and even from most of her relatives knew what actually she was doing. She did not asked for any help from anybody in spite of very adverse economic condition. All the credit of her success goes to her own abilities, determination and hard work, supported by her husband Pradeep.

Congratulations Madam Inspector, I salute you.

I would say that I salute both of them. Mrs. Aarti for her arduous efforts and her husband more so ever for standing besides her and chasing their dream even when the situation tried to knock them off several times...

I remember The famous dialogue from Rocky Balbua "It aint how hard you hit that matters, the thing that matters is how hard you can get hit and still keep moving forward..."

Mahavirmama great work of bringing out such stories from the so called common man whose real life is filled with great triumphs and sacrifices which almost always go unsung..
