August 12, 2022: 42-year-old Bindu and her 24-year-old son, Vivek, caught everybody’s attention with the unique feat.
Bindu cleared the Lower Divisional Clerk (LDC) exam with a rank of 38, while her son passed the Last Grade Servants (LGS) test with a rank of 92.
Bindu’s first three attempts - two for the LGS exam and one for the LDC-were unsuccessful. She finally made it on her fourth attempt.
Bindu, who has been teaching at an Anganwadi centre for a decade, said her family and instructors at her coaching centre were a constant source of inspiration and support.

Vivek expressed his happiness about passing the exam with his mother.
"We went together to coaching classes. My mother brought me to this and my father arranged all the facilities for us. We got a lot of motivation from our teachers. We both studied together but never thought that we’d qualify together. We’re both very happy", says Vivek.
The mother and son attending classes together at a coaching center was a delightful scene for people in the region also. At home, however, they never endorsed combined studies.
The mother and son credit their teachers at Coaching Centre, Babu and Razaak, who guided them to achieve the feat. Bindu also won the state award for best Anganwadi teacher in the years 2019-2020.
