I main reason for choosing IAS was its work profile. One gets exposure in diverse domains like Law & Order, Education, Healthcare, implementing social schemes etc. Moreover there is people to people contact which adds to job satisfaction. The power to improve the lives of the most unprivileged is a big motivator

General Studies & Essay were the areas where I needed improvement.

Focus on content, structure & use of creative sentences giving analogy formed the basis of my strategy.

What do you want to say the lakhs of student who aspire to be an IAS officer?
Strategise well. Strategy is as important as hard work if not more. Hard work without strategy is useless. Last but not the least, Life is not about “I could or I couldn’t” but life is just about “I tried”. My advice to aspirants is to do synchronous classes for securing good marks in G.S.
