WOMEN ARE clearly on top. Apart from the first two rankholders, there are five girls among the top 20 candidates of the UPSC examinations, the results of which were announced on Monday.

While Faridabad's Mona Pruthi is the topper, Gurneet Tej, a resident of Sahibabad in UP, is second. At No. 7 is Archana Nair, a management trainee at the Gurgaon branch of the American Express.

Pruthi, who taught English at the Maharaja Agrasen College in Delhi, says the path from William Shakespeare to IAS is not too difficult. "It needs a combination of logic, intelligence and hard work," says Pruthi, in between taking congratulatory calls on her mobile.

Meanwhile, a number of Lucknow candidates did the city proud in the Civil Services Examination 2005. Priya Goel (162 rank), Niharika Singh (191 rank), Manish Rai (247 rank) and Manu (277 rank) are just some.
