Sometime in 2016, we started our MGP program. Of the 86 students who joined us 74 people secured an Interview call. All these people ( whom we call our first Batch ) , we were in touch with settled down in prestigious services.
Except two people. Dhruv, this year secured Rank 99 and got IFS, and we had one more person remaining.
The curious case with this last person was that he had appeared for the Interview in his initial attempts ( In those days, with basic answer writing skills, and with limited content, it was easy to make it to the list ). However, he could not quite make it to the final list.
Demotivated, he left for his hometown. His father had passed away and a government job on compassionate grounds awaited him. However, he always wanted to become an Officer.
He was always in touch but stayed out of Delhi for two years During this time, he suffered loss of family members and flunked at nearly every exam he gave – including UPSC Prelims, State PCS and what not.
In 2018, we asked him to move to Delhi and make one last fresh attempt. He took up the CGP Program with ForumIAS Academy in New Delhi. He also wrote the State Services Examination, and until two days before the Mains examination was at the Delhi Center, working on his answer script and essay.
Shreyansh secured Rank 1 in BPSC, as and SDM. He is committed to the UPSC as the next goal meanwhile.
