The Hush Post: No Rao Study Circle no Khan Study Group, for UPSC topper, Anudeep Durishetty Google and YouTube were the biggest tutors.
Instead, they ensured they had a wi-fi connection. Like another successful IAS candidate Vivek Chahal from Jind in remote Haryana, who says, internet gives you everything, it provides a solution to everything.
If at all, in this day and age, coaching may not be the most important thing. Durishetty said that it wasn’t any coaching class but he spent most of his time on internet to prepare for the civils.
Sharing tips with the youngsters aspiring for the Union Public Service Commission test, Durishetty said: “It is not necessary that one enrols with a coaching institute. These days everything is available online and all one needs is the zeal and motivation to crack the exam. There are many websites, magazines and newspapers that can provide one with all the required information. Even then if someone has a doubt, YouTube is the best tutor.”
Already an IRS officer from Metpally village in Jagatyal, Anudeep said that his desire to work in the Indian Administrative Service officer’s role grew stronger while serving in his current position.” Being an IRS officer, you are limited to the revenue department. But once you are an IAS, you get to test limits in various departments. It brings responsibility. This realisation made me work even harder to achieve my goal,” he said. Another thing which pushed him hard was the fact that his father wanted him to become an IAS officer.
Durishetty, who has opted for Telangana cadre says,”This is the place where I was born and brought up and working here and making a difference with my work would be an honour. However, no matter where I am posted, improving health and education will be my top priorities,” he said.
Appearing his fifth attempt, the 28-year-old Anudeep was quite certain to never appear for the test again, in case he didn’t get through IAS this time. “I was exhausted and decided not to write the test again irrespective of the outcome of the exam. I just decided to give my best this time. Luckily, the odds were in my favour,” said Durishetty.
