सिविल सेवा में मेरी सफलता-एक यात्रा

MY SUCCESS STORY
SOME OF MY FRIEND ASK ME MY SECRET OF SUCCESS IN CIVIL SERVICES EXAM 2007 WITH RANK OF 122 (AIR). IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO TELL EVERYONE SEPARETLY. SO I AM POSTING MY STORY ON BLOG SO THAT ANYONE CAN SEE IT.
“WHERE THERE IS WILL THERE IS SUCCESS”
Pawan Kumar(122nd Rank)

I would like to start from my family background. I was born in Mainpuri district. Mainpuri is known as the less developed and less resourceful town such as less guidance, less power supply and very few educational facilities. I had to face these challenges when I begin to prepare for Civil Services. Mainpuri was so unaware that for years none had been selected in state or civil services. In fact in my family also there was no such person who could guide me but even then I started preparation. My father is an inspector in Uttar Pradesh Police and my mother is a housewife. My parents not only motivated me but also encouraged and provided enough resources for making a career in civil services. At the age of 21 I appeared in the State Civil Services Exam and fortunately I got success in the very first attempt and was selected for Treasury Services. Afterwards I was selected for the posts of Dy. SP and SDM in two successive attempts. Finally I joined as SDM and I worked in Lucknow, Bareilly and Ghaziabad.
In 2006 when I was posted in Bareilly as SDM my younger brother Shyamu was preparing for the UPSC. He suggested me to make an attempt for UPSC. I did not consider it very seriously but at the same time my wife also forced me to appear for the UPSC. Then I became serious but it was a huge gap of 5 years. Then I decided to have less significant posting somewhere in Lucknow so that I could prepare for the UPSC. I got posting in Directorate of Sports as Asst. Director. With my childhood friend Satyendra Sagar (Presently working as Finance Officer in Govt. of UP) I started preparation. After a long gap I felt some problems like changed syllabus, negative marking in prelims and new trends in GS mains but the consistent encouragement of my family members and teachers and Sagar helped me to fight with these hurdles. Some of my friends who were preparing in Delhi provided me the valuable notes. I took the chance in selection of the optional. In fact in state civil services I always opted for Law and Public Administration. In this time I was not confidant with the Law so I decided to go with History because History is a consistent subject and Public Administration was my natural choice as I had wide behavioral experience of administration.
Before prelims I took one month leave from my office and one and half month leave before the mains. It did not have the enough time but I managed all the things in this limited time. Due to the shortage of time I couldn’t prepare World History properly. For mains I went through the whole syllabus and made notes on every topic in both optional and in the second phase of preparations I selected some topics and worked out them effectively. In the meantime when the mains were going on I was transferred to Ghaziabad and I had to join there with charge of SDM. So half of schedule of mains I completed from Lucknowand and half from Ghaziabad. Finally with the blessings of the almighty God and hard work of mine, I got success in the mains and was called for the interview. Again for the interview I couldn’t prepare well because in my sub-division By-Election was declared and my full time was engaged in it. When the election was over very little time had left for me to consult for interview. Nearly all the coaching institutions had finished the mock sessions for interview. Then there was only way for me to consult the experts individually. Some noted institutions in Delhi helped me. My friend Sagar who unfortunately could not succeed in the mains and Mukteshwar ji from Lucknow came to my house in the meantime and discussed valuable topics with me and gave their valuable suggestions. I cannot ignore the personal attachment of Arunesh Singh, Vikas Divyakirti, S.P. Jha and Shekhar Tripathi.
My interview was on 28th April 2008(Afternoon) in the board of Parveen Talha. Board asked me 60% qust. based on my administrative experience and 40% on my biodata, hobbies and academic background. Ultimately my interview was much satisfactory . I got 122nd rank (It is very good with Hindi medium and in SC category). Lastly I would like say that where is will there is success. Right approach in the right direction always leads to success. My hard work and strong determination was crucial for my success. I cannot forget my well wishers and my brothers Pankaj (Asst. Commnr. UP Commercial Tax Service), Hirdesh, Shyamu,Bajesh (IAS 2005 Uttranchal cader), my wife Anju and above all my parents who always saw great dreams for me.

Respected Pawan Kumar
Sir,

Toady I opened your blog with pre-concive mind to go through the litreature written by you as u had discussed yesterday night.But it was striking in my mind an administrative officer from law brackground and have writing skill/intrest in litreature.

while opening your blog, I was thinking offcourse as usal like other person that-your sucesses story/journey of IAS?

Their is specific reason behind that is ,specially in India every Father/ Mother & individual have the dream to become IAS. So my father always motivate me in childhood to become IAS and prepare for that accordingly. I always say to father OK ,I will -but this is the only lie with my father till day. U will surprise to know that even I had never fill the form for the same beacuse in my heart before start I HAD ADMIITED MY DEFEAT IN MY MIND AND HAVE MADE THE CONCLUSION THAT I CAN NOT BECOME IAS. Though I was very admire and fascinated about administrative jobs. And finally with my belief I become engineer.

So when I had an opportunity to meet with you yesterday and have spend tiem arround ne and half hour. Yesterday I was thinking what a great achivement a sucesses in IAS for which I have a fear upto that extreme that even I couldn't appear in exam.

Yesterday I would wanted to know that but couldn't ask due to " PURUSH SULABH LAZZA".....

While going through blog I was found your suceesses journey and really came to know the secret (jeast) and really it's truth as I can say as per experience today
" There is will there is win"
This is not reading statment rather it's realizing statment and now I got learning for me from the above line is that

"Don't lower ur GOALS to the level of ur abilities,
Instead raise ur abilities to the hieght of the GOALS".


The statemnt have real weight & insipirations for others,If the statment given by the person who have performed that jouney/ after experience/ achievment.

Some lines coming in my mind( What I feel) which really fit with your character/personality and which expalin in u in totality

A fish said to water
" U can't see my tears beacuse I am in U"
Water replied
" but I can feel ur tears beacuse U R in me".

I mean apart from your profesional sucesses, ur such a nice person also , what I had feel in great tiem with u.

I hope & wish u will be always inspiration for ourselves /coming generation and not only ourselves rather country will be proud on U.

Since in our professions, we always put the things in ratonal way, so If something defferd in words, just take my meaning about it and aslo pardon/excuse me If something...........

Thanx & regrads/Vijay/NTPC
