We sometimes don’t acknowledge the sacrifices a public servant makes to fulfil their job. For us, government job means, settlement of lifetime, but if you look at administrative department that includes IAS and IPS civil workers, we never give them due credit.

A quora user named, Kamal Raj very well quoted of how a pregnant police officer was seen on duty during pandemic, and it was only in the news for a day or two. 

It would’ve been much longer on the headlines, if that was a movie actor.
