60-year-old Sumitra Devi’s retirement as a peon in Ramgarh, Jharkhand, went down as a special event on Monday. A farewell ceremony this big is unique for a retiring peon, but Sumitra’s achievement is no less than remarkable. In the long years of struggle and hard work, she has been able to ensure that her three sons were well provided for and that they had all comforts to study well. And now, her struggles have paid off as all her sons have become successful professionals.

The elder son Virendra Kumar is a railway engineer, the second son Dhirendra Kumar is a doctor, and third son Mahendra Kumar is now the district collector of Siwan in Bihar.

Although her sons became  professionally successful and were ready to take care of their mother, Sumitra Devi was determined to continue her Group Four job at CCL(Central Coalfields Limited) township in Rajrappa. She wanted to retire as a proud woman and inspire others to work hard.

Her farewell ceremony on Monday was attended by her three sons. It was an emotional sight to see her leaving the office for the last time, and all her colleagues came to bid her farewell. She was given a shawl and a flower bouquet from the office.

Sumitra’s sons also shared their success story and how their mother devotedly guided them and ensured a good education for them. They told that they had decided long back to do something good in their lives after seeing the constant struggles and hard work of their mother. Mahendra Kumar said that no job is difficult in life. Everything becomes possible with honest and hard work.


The Logical Indian salutes Sumitra Devi and all the mothers making great sacrifices for their children, while also being an unlimited source of inspiration.
