Rohtak: Man quit bank job to help wife top judiciary exam | Gurgaon News

ROHTAK: The proverb that “behind every successful man, there is a woman” has clearly become outdated and perhaps it’s time to rephrase it to “behind every successful marriage, there is a supportive spouse”.
Manjula Bhalotia, a mother of two, topped the Uttar Pradesh higher judiciary examination, the results of which were declared on Tuesday, but she could not have possibly achieved this feat without her husband’s unflinching support.
Manjula, who did her LLB from Rajasthan and MBA from the UK, said her husband Sumit Ahlawat quit his cushy bank job to babysit the children so that she could prepare for the exam. She had earlier worked with UK-based Barclays Bank for two years.
This was Manjula’s fourth attempt at the exam. Originally from Jaipur, she now lives in Rohtak and is currently posted as assistant district attorney in Jind. “During the lockdown, I felt the need to prove my mettle.
But it was getting tough to take care of two children, work and also prepare for the judiciary exam. It was then that my husband took the tough decision to quit his job as a deputy director at a bank and support me,” she said.
The couple got married in October 2009. Manjula said Sumit would take care of the children while she would do her job in Jind and dedicate the rest of the time to exam preparation.
She would keep the books with her all the time, whether she was at work or in the kitchen. “I would try to use every single minute of the day in my preparation. I was hopeful that I would crack the exam, but never imagined that I would be the topper,” she said.
Shamsher Ahlawat, Manjula’s father-in-law, said he was proud that she had brought glory to the family with her hard work and dedication. “I always wanted to achieve something. But, I never thought I would get the opportunity after marriage and giving birth to two children,” said Manjula.
