What makes you to entered into the field of competitive exams?
After finishing my post graduation I took some time off to reflect on my career path. I always knew I wanted to do something with real, grass-roots impact. Of course there is nothing better than serving your country.

I have appeared for Civil Service Examination as well. The preliminary stage is common for both CSE and Indian Forest service exam. The pattern is also quite similar.
What motivated you to give the second attempt?
In my first attempt I had not prepared well for my second optional. In the second attempt I had more clarity of the subjects and consequently could plan my preparation better. Since I was completely focused on the examination, quitting was never an option. I kept telling myself try, try and try again and you will definitely succeed.
What books or material did you use to prepare?
I prepared on my own without any coaching and relied on NCERT books for general studies paper along with newspapers and internet. For my optionals, I used my notes and textbooks from college. There is no substitute for self study. Coaching may provide a direction to one’s preparation but even then it’s the consistent hard work which pays off.
Why you chose the Field of Civil Services as your Career?
I always wanted to be in a field in which I could contribute to society. Development and environment are two of the most pressing concerns of the time and being in Indian Forest Service will enable me to work at their interface.
What would you suggestions for students who are appearing in UPSC IFS Mains 2015?
It’s natural to be stressed before an exam and in moderation it may enhance one’s performance. However, one should learn to manage the anxiety. Planned and timely preparation will help in coping with exam blues.
