Daijiworld Media Network – Thiruvananthapuram (MS)

Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 13: Breaking barriers with determination and diligence, S Aswathy from the capital city of Kerala has secured a remarkable achievement by cracking the UPSC examination despite her humble background as the daughter of a construction labourer. She clinched the All India Rank (AIR) 481 in the 2020 UPSC examination.

Aswathy's aspiration to become an IAS officer began during her eighth grade. However, she pursued her education at Government Barton Hill Engineering College in Thiruvananthapuram. After receiving a job offer from TCS Kochi during her final year, she decided to pursue her dream of appearing for the UPSC exams.

Initially juggling her job at TCS with UPSC preparation, Aswathy later resigned in 2017 to dedicate herself entirely to UPSC preparation. She sought coaching from the Kerala State Civil Services Academy and various other private academies in Kerala.

Despite facing setbacks in her initial attempts in 2017, 2018, and 2019, Aswathy persevered and achieved success in her fourth attempt in 2020. She attributes her success to focused content improvement and rigorous writing practice, which enabled her to present her ideas effectively in the examination.

Aswathy's father expressed immense pride in her accomplishment, highlighting her diligence and studious nature from childhood. Her mother is a homemaker, and her younger brother is employed in an IT firm. Aswathy's achievement serves as an inspiration to many, proving that hard work and dedication can overcome any obstacle.

    Whats wrong in being a construction labourer ? Your idea of promoting New world Order policies in order to destroy villages is scary and disgusting as well.
