Anmol Sher Singh Bedi, son of an educator, made Amritsar proud by grabbing the 2nd rank in the civil services examination.

As soon as the result was out on Wednesday, congratulatory calls poured in for Anmol, 23, a computer engineer, who achieved the feat in the first attempt.

“This is a dream come true. Since my childhood, I have aimed to be a bureaucrat,” quipped Anmol.

Anmol’s father Dr Sarabjit Singh Bedi is an educationist and his mother Jassi Bedi is associated with an NGO. The boy gives credit to his family, especially his sister Gursimran Kaur Bedi, for his stupendous performance. “They were the guiding lights,” he added.

Anmol said he will go for the Indian Foreign Services. ”India is growing by leaps and bounds. I want to play a pivotal role in it,” he added.

The boy said he used to study around eight hours a day. “I didn’t stick to any particular strategy. I just remained consistent,” he said.

Anmol said he never let his motivation level come down. “Even low scores at times during school days didn’t bog me down,” he added.
