Success inspires success - Prince Dhawan (AIR 3, CSE 2011)

For any new candidate who starts thinking about making a career in Civil Services, it is of great magnitude to take a look at the toppers and their thoughts, expressions and advice on virtually most of the topics such as what to read, what was their strategy; from where they took help etc.

You need to have the imaginations and drive to make things happen. One of the secrets to success is recognizing that motivation follows action.

When Prince started toying with an idea of serious preparation for Civil Services Examination he was confused a little bit about his optional subjects and was mulling over the humanities subjects which are performing and producing very good results.

The major aspect about most of these humanities subjects was that these can be prepared within 4-5 months where as Electrical Engineering requires at least one year time to prepare effectively.

Love with own subject, Electrical Engineering was impulsive; but, not a very good success-rate and as it is chosen by a limited number of candidates were making things puzzling for Prince.

On this front, the biggest motivation came from his senior Prakash Rajpurohit (AIR 2, CSE 2009) who achieved success with Electrical Engineering and Mathematics.

Prince had also been tracking the success of Muthyala Raju Revu (AIR 1, CSE 2006) and Supreet Singh Gulati (AIR 2, CSE 2007) who earlier achieved success with Electrical Engineering as one of the subject.

As Prince says, “after talking to Prakash sir, I firmly made up mind to accept my own subject Electrical Engineering as first choice and while selecting my second optional, I considered the advice from Supreet Gulati sir who recommended not to pick both Science/Engineering subject; that is why, for second optional subject, I gave preference to the best performing subject these days - Public Administration.”

The strategy worked, the advice proved to be the instrument in his success that has come to him in his very first attempt.

So, reach out to people whom you trust, who can show you’re the right direction, continue putting in hard work and remain focused on the goal, god willing, success will be yours.
