Journey of "Uike" who came from backward area and became IFS is inspiring the youth
It is easy to run away from the difficulties of life, every aspect of life is a test, those who are afraid do not get anything in life, everything is in the footsteps of those who fight. These lines fit perfectly with Rajesh Uike, who traveled from a backward area of Chhattisgarh to become the Indian Ambassador to a foreign country.
Before going abroad, IFS officer Uike paid a courtesy call to President Murmu
Uike, who hails from Kondagaon district, has written an inspiring story of success by overcoming difficulties. Uike, a 2006 batch Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer, was recently appointed as the next Ambassador of India to Tajikistan.
Rajesh Uike of Kondagaon will fulfill the responsibility of the Indian Ambassador abroad
Before leaving for Tajikistan, Uike paid a courtesy call on President Draupadi Murmu in New Delhi. During this, President Murmu presented the credential documents to Uike marking his official appointment as the next Ambassador of India to Tajikistan.
According to the Ministry of External Affairs, before Uike's appointment, the post was held by 1997 batch IFS officer Viraj Singh, who was appointed as India's Ambassador to Tajikistan in 2019. India and the Central Asian Republic of Tajikistan have traditionally enjoyed close and cordial relations. Now the responsibility of taking these relations to a new peak lies on the shoulders of Uike.
Presently Rajesh Uike is working as Joint Secretary in the External Publicity and Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi. His diplomatic career has included various roles in Indian embassies and consulates abroad, as well as various responsibilities within the ministry in New Delhi.
Uike has been very talented since his school days. He completed his schooling in Kondagaon and Sukma district. He received the National Talent Search Merit Scholarship of NCERT. Apart from this he also obtained gold and silver medals in Mathematics Talent Search Examination at High School and Higher Secondary level respectively.
Uike holds a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from NIT Bhopal and a master's degree in industrial engineering from IIT, Delhi. Before joining the Indian Foreign Service, he also worked for some time as a design engineer and operations manager in the automobile sector. Uike also served in the Indian Railways and launched an industrial start-up soon after graduation.
However, Uike, who had a special interest in foreign affairs and diplomacy, decided to go beyond this and do something bigger and he started preparing for the Civil Services Examination and also achieved success. Uike is now excited to take on his new role in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. Uike's focus and persistence towards his goals to fulfill his dreams amidst adversity inspire the youth to move forward in life.
