According to Wikipedia, Pradeep Gawande was born on December 9, 1980, in Maharashtra. He is three years senior to Tina, having passed the civil service examinations in 2013. He is a licenced doctor who earned his MBBS degree before taking the UPSC test.
Gawande is the Director of Rajasthan’s Archeology and Museums and has been collecting Churu for a long time. Pradeep describes himself on his Instagram handle as, ‘IAS 2013| Rajasthan Cadre| Medico| Marathi Presently posted as Director, Archeology & Museums Rajasthan’.
Tina was previously married to Athar Amir. They were both Rajasthan cadre officers. The pair had stated that they fell in love in their training session. Since the Hindu Mahasabha labelled their tale as love-jihad, it was a hot topic of conversation from Delhi to Jammu and Kashmir.
