You are here: Ias Topper Interview
Narayan 119th Rank 2009

How do you feel getting into IAS and being the topper from NORTH EAST and also among GS category?

Certainly it gives me immense pleasure that I could be able to establish myself as one of the successful candidates that too from a remote region like North East. As regards to category, I stood second in position among the successful ST candidates, and the first candidate from my tribe (TIiwa Tribe) who has cleared the civil services examination for the first time like this.

What are you doing currently?

I am working as a lecturer in the Department of Political Science, Nowgong College, Assam.

When did you decide to appear for this coveted IAS examination?

I appeared in this examination for the first time in 2004. But I started my serious preparation from 2007.

What were your optionals?

Public Administration and Literature of Assamese Language

What books did you study?

I studied all the conventional text books which are generally followed by every aspirant. Magazines like CSC, YOJANA, KURUKSHETRA helped me immensely. 

Can you share with us the hurdles that came your way during the preparation of the examination and how you encountered them?

My achievement is a result of a long struggle that I have started right from my childhood. I lost my father when I was in class five. I was the eldest with my sister, and two brothers. At that stage we had to fight just to survive. I had to drop my schooling when I was in class nine. I failed in my first attempt in higher secondary final examination. Even I had to work in a college for nearly two years to generate the resources to sustain in Delhi.

Your suggestions to aspirants especially people coming from your area.

They need to work hard along with proper strategy and orientation. Talent is not a problem for the aspirants of this region but lack of proper awareness and guidance. Orientation and strategies are the main areas where they need to give more focus.

With CSAT around, what will be your suggestion to the candidates with regard to strategy to tackle the examination?

Don’t panic, it will ensure a common platform for everyone .Get the right guidance and work like there is no tomorrow.
