How does clearing or not clearing the UPSC exam make you a winner or a loser? This is just one exam for a particular type of job! So what if you didn't clear it? Is everyone who is anyone doing UPSC-based jobs? What about Sachin Tendulkar, Aishwarya Rai, Bill Gates, Narendra Modi, Mary Kom? Have they all cleared the UPSC?
I am an ex- corporate strategist with an MBA and a B.E. degree. Currently serving as an IAS officer for the Government of India, a post I got after I achieved All India Rank 1 in the UPSC Civil Services Examination 2014. I happen to be the first disabled person to get this rank and have chosen this profession since I want to be a part of the Indian Growth Story.
