When the institution where she worked for seven years terminated her services one fine day, Veena S Nath had no option but to search for a new posting. She finally proved a point by securing the first position in the rank list of confidential assistants in Devaswom Recruitment Board. Veena rightfully deserves the top rank for her hard work and persistence in the face of adversities. It has also boosted her self-esteem.
Veena worked as a technical assistant in a major institution at Thiruvananthapuram on contract. Even though there were opportunities for getting a permanent posting there as data entry operator and confidential assistant, some political interference sabotaged her chances. Later, she was sacked towards the end of 2017.
After this, Veena took a firm decision to find a permanent job and started attending exam coaching at Confident, Thiruvananthapuram. She took training here for about a year and utilized ‘Thozhil Veedhi’, among other books. She has, in fact, collected all the issues of ‘Thozhil Veedhi’ in an year.
Veena faced some difficulties initially as she had started the exam coaching late, but soon overcame all such hurdles. She applied for several posts and wrote the exams. Veena hopes to secure a good rank in these tests when the results are announced. Meanwhile, she has found a place in the list of company/corporation/board CA grade 2. Her practical exam is over and she is awaiting the rank list.
Daughter of Ramanathan Nair and Sobhana Kumari of Muralika, Annur at Tirumala in Thiruvananthapuram, Veena has a degree in Economics and a diploma in commercial practice. Her husband N S Balamohan is an assistant engineer with the Department of Sports. Their only son V Nived Mohan is a Class 1 student. Veena also expresses her gratitude to her husband Balamohan and his parents Sreedharan Nair and Nalina Kumari for their support, which played a major role in her first rank performance.
Meanwhile, Veena has decided to continue her coaching classes even after taking up the new posting.
