Hi as I can see in your code that the path you have mentioned for your Chrome driver is:

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "‪C:\\Test Automation\\Jars\\chromedriver.exe");

While the error is showing this path:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: The driver executable does not exist: C:\Users\tarin\JAVA-practice\Tutorial2\‪C:\Test Automation\Jars\chromedriver.exe 

So can you please check if if your have set the right path for your Chrome driver? May be that would resolve your issue.
