FEATURED POST

Meet Merin Joseph, IPS – A young cop from Kerala

Merin Joseph is a brave and hard-working Indian Police Service – IPS – Officer. She is also quite beautiful replete with amazing physical features. Unfortunately, her beauty has become the talk of the town and people have just ignored the magnificent way she is working. There is no denying that Merin Joseph is a role model for young Indian girls, not just for Keralites.It is a matter of great concern that some section of Indian media has used sexist remarks for her. This also shows the prevailing patriarchal attitudes that we Indians have. Hopefully, officers like Merin Joseph will be a milestone in breaking the sad state of affairs.

Merin Joseph was born in Kottayam, Kerala. She has done schooling from New Delhi, as her father was working there. After completing schooling, she took admission St. Stephen’s College from where she has done B. A. – Honours. She was always considered a brilliant student. She was of double mind about further education after completing graduation. But, fortunately, she decided to go for Civil Services. She started preparation and took admission in a coaching institute in Mukerjee Nagar Delhi.

Merin Cracked Civil Services Examination in 2012 and got 188 All India Rank. Her first four choices of services were – IAS, IFS, IPS and then IRS. She couldn’t get any of the first two choices, as she belongs to General Category. She was settled with IPS and got her home cadre. After completing her training from NPA, Hyderabad, she was posted at Ernakulam, Rural as ASP – Under Training. From this very first posting, Merin Joseph attracted attention of general public, not for her looks but for her integrity and zeal to help people in need. She has always ensured to remain available on the call 24 hours if there is any need to anyone.

She was interviewed by the board of IMG Khan on the 6th of March, 2013, once she mentioned that she was not very satisfied with interview but she cracked it successfully with 188 rank and became IPS.

Controversies of Merin Joseph


Merin is not new to controversies. The Facebook post which had first appeared started it all. She became a national sensation and hence her name is being misused here and there.Recently, a fake Facebook Account of Merin Joeseph claimed that she is against the system of reservation. As people are aware of the fact that injustice was done to her because of this reservation system, some of them started to take note of the post. Merin Joseph had to use her social account to clarify that she has never made any statement and what’s being shared over the social media is wrong. Something like this had also happened with Tina Dabi, UPSC Civil Services topper – 2015.

Last year she became a trending topic in media because of her beautiful look. Along with many other news media even The Hindu came up with an story titled Pretty Tough Cophighlighting her beauty quoted her as the dashing young IPS officer who took social media by storm.
Merin had also objected to a news report which was published in DNA calling her one among ‘top 10 most beautiful IAS/IPS officers of India’. This was highly sexist report and the intension was just to draw eyeballs. Merin again comes forward and wrote an eye opening response to this news report.

Merin was also severely criticized for a picture that was widely shared on social media. In the photo, she was seen in a lighter mood – smiling – with rising Malayalam Super Star Nivin Pauly. Again, Merin comes forward and clarified the context in which the picture was taken by a Congress MLA.
