Her UPSC Journey

After MTech, she started preparing for UPSC. In 2019 she gave her first attempt. Unfortunately, she was not able to clear even prelims back then.

Therefore her mind was divided in both and hence she was not able to clear it.

She was disappointed with the result. Having a brilliant academic record from the past now facing such failure was beyond her acceptance. But her sister played a big role in it and calmed her down. Then she explained that ups and downs are a part of our life. We should keep on moving for ultimate success.

The poem goes like this,

Waqt aane par Tujhe, bata denge aye aasman….Hum Abhi se kya bataye kya hamare dil me hain. ”

When the time comes we’ll prove it to the sky. Why should we tell you now itself, as to what’s there in our hearts?”

It is a famous line from a famous poem

“Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamare dil me hain”.
