Indoor training

So that they can also become officers that citizens like instead of getting scared.

Outdoor Training

This includes and parade exercises. The main motive of the parade is to enforce discipline in the candidate. The exercise aims to maintain the physical physicality of the candidate so that they can protect their region in the case of crisis.

When he meets them he tries to motivate the young candidates for higher missions. He asks them to fulfil their duties lawfully and become a police officer that people love and respect.

Respect for the Parents

Moreover, he touches his parent’s feet daily before starting our day.

Tips for Youth

Sunil Sir laments that today’s youth are not giving respect to their parents as they should. They are busy with their work and forget about their parents.

Parents play an important role in anyone’s life, and they are the only ones who will genuinely worry about you. Therefore, according to him, everyone should pay due respect to their parents and respect them for the care and love they provided us.

Special Events in His Career

When the interviewer asked him about an event in his career that is of great honour.

He responded that police officers do five to six things in a year, which is newsworthy and makes him a hero.

But instead of doing two to three jobs in a year, Sunil Kumar Singh made strategy and tried to keep trying to work as a good police officer 365 days in any way he maintained the law in order and fulfilled all his responsibilities carefully 365 years.

Lessons to be Taken

Being a Civil Servant is a status of prestige and reputation, but rather it is a responsibility.

A Responsibility to maintain the law and order of the country.

As an IPS officer, you should try to help the current citizens of India, as much as you can.

The status of police is not very good in the eyes of a normal citizen. They generally see the Police force as violent and brutal forces, who like to beat people.

But this is not the case, the Police force is there to protect citizens and to maintain law and order.

Therefore every police officer should try to demolish this prejudice, and maintain a new definition of Police Force.

Moreover, today’s youth are forgetting the importance of their parents. They are more career-oriented and forget about their parents. As they get older, they transfer them to the old age home.

But this is wrong, parents are the only people who love and care for you unconditionally.


Today’s generation should take a lesson from the journey of Sunil Sir.

We, UPSC Pathshala introduced him, to remind you about the main motive of civil service as you are today’s youth and future of India. Hopefully, this article helped you in getting the required dose of inspiration for your preparation.
