Do or Do, Never Die is the spirit I embody.
I come from a region which is called backward in a developing country. There was deprivation everywhere around me. So, I grew up with a penchant towards public service and wanting to influence a change and be a change agent from inside the government.
The circumstances lit a passion in me for public service but entering Civil Services in India is a herculean task, especially for someone from the so called General Merit grouping. The competition is cut-throat.
I pursued the dream sincerely for 4 years to get into IAS. I couldn’t, but as they say, aim for the moon, if you miss you will at least hit a star. The efforts yielded a fruit on 23rd December 2019. The never die spirit helped me get through Revenue Services in Karnataka, instead. I secured 19th Rank in the state and got selected for the post of Assistant Commissioner for Commercial Taxes.
Not my dream job yet, but I am half way there. I am onto preparing for Indian Administrative Services now. I did it while I was working with Societe Generale Global solution Center , a French firm operating from Bangalore, India as a Specialist System engineer. I have studied Computer science Engineering for graduation.
Apart from Public Service, my interests include History, Psychology, and the Law. I also try to write when I get a chance. If you have any assignments for writing articles on public administration and Indian Polity, do message me. I’d love to pursue an opportunity to pen for blogs and newspapers..
I have also been previously associated with with many prestigious civil services training institutes such as Vajiram and Ravi, Unacademy, ForumIAS, InsightsonIndia, Prep Academy, UPSC Summaries among others – creating content for them in freelance capacity.
This platform serves as a conduit for me to express my opinion about some of the most important issues and incidentally make this a portfolio for my Freelancing Career.
