Success knocks the door of those who are diligent and consistently devoted. The way to accomplish in life is not about being rich and affluent, it takes grit and determination.An inspiring story shared by the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) chairman Shrikant Madhav Vaidya recently, is a testament to the same. On Twitter, Vaidya introduced the world to Arya Rajagopalan, who is the daughter of a petrol pump attendant.

Arya’s father has been working as a petrol pump attendant for nearly two decades now. Arya is a proud graduate from the National Institute of Technology (NIT), and is now headed to join one of the most prestigious colleges in the country.

 She will be now pursuing MTech in Petroleum Engineering. In a tweet, Vaidya shared the good news which delighted and inspired several netizens.

The inspiring feat has left social media users in awe of Arya’s achievement and her father’s consistent effort over the years.

The young student, who is earning plaudits from all corners, also received a word of praise from Hardeep Singh Puri, the Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, who congratulated her.“Arya Rajagopalan has done her father Sh Rajagopalan Ji & indeed all of us associated with the country’s energy sector immensely proud. This exemplary father-daughter duo are an inspiration and role models for Aspirational New India,”wrote Puri in a tweet.Speaking to Republic, Arya’s father extended his heartfelt gratitude on behalf of Arya towards the people who sent their best wishes to them. Signing off, he also expressed the hopes he has pinned for his daughter’s future. "It would be wonderful if my daughter gets placed in Indian Oil Corporation, the same company I worked for since 2005," Mr. Rajagopalan was quoted as saying.
