Super Cop Or Super Mom? Well, Decide For Yourself

When duty calls, you can't give any excuse especially when it comes to serving the nation as an officer of law. This woman constable posted in Jhansi gave meaning to it by a powerful display of her devotion at work. Being a mother of a six month old daughter, it started to become difficult for her to look after her daughter. She had no one she could rely upon.But she didn’t give up on any one of them and showed the power of being a woman on duty or more of a mother.

Challenges to a mother

Archana Jayant Singh (30), hailing from Agra was posted at Agra in 2016 as police constable. She was a mother of two daughters. Elder one lived with her family in Kanpur but the younger one being only six months old required more time and attention of her mother. Because Archana’s husband was employed in a private company, he was unable to look after her. So she had to do it all by herself. That’s when she showed true power of motherhood and started to take her daughter to her workplace. Every day she took her daughter to work and did her job as well with the same efficiency as ever. She had no idea what she would get in return for her dedication both as a mother and an officer of law.
