INSPIRED BY the recent success of candidates from the city in the Civil Services Examinations, the Hindi medium students aspiring for the same success seem to have found a new strength and they have got back to their preparations with a new vigour.
The results of Civil Services examinations have brought laurels to the city as about half a dozen candidates got selected and many secured high position in the merit list this year. This city famous for its success rate in the civil services seems to have regained its the lost glory.
Brahmdev Ram Tiwari of PC Banerjee Hostel secured 37th rank with Sanskrit while 38th ranked Dayanidhan Pandey opted for Hindi as optional subject.
Son of a teacher from Basti district, Brahmadev Ram Tiwari got selected for six other services before the IAS which was his ultimate goal. He believed that there is no short cut to success and regular and systematic hard work proves fruitful.
Son of a bank official Dayanidhan has been earlier selected as Auditor and Tehsildar but he did not join as he was confident to make it to the IAS. He credited his success to his father.
Abhishek Krishna, scoring 27th rank in IAS is son of Prof Kailash Rai of Allahabad University. He cleared the preliminary examination immediately after completing his graduation and got selected to the IAS at an early age of 25.
The 144th rank holder Rukmini Atri cleared the examination in Hindi medium. Daughter of a renowned doctor SC Atri, Rukmini has been a meritorious students since school days.
Those who could not make it to the Civil Services this time around, as well the first timers have rededicated themselves to their studies.
Ramesh Singh, an IAS aspirant and an inmate of Sir Sunder Lal Hostel (SSL) said that the unexpected results have inspired the students to put some extra efforts to beat the competition.
The selection of many Hindi medium students has also encouraged the hostel inmates (most of them with Hindi as the medium of studies) and challenged the dominance of English medium students in the IAS.
The increase in selection to IAS this year is also due to inclination of students towards IAS as compared to Provincial Civil Service (PCS). The change is specifically due to reduction in number of seats in PCS, he added.
Sunil Rai of SSL Hostel who claimed to have got selected in the Indian Postal Services last year said that students went for traditional subjects which are still the favourite, but a change has been noticed in the subjects opted by the students for two to three years. More and more students nowadays opt humanities and even science or engineering students choose subjects like geography, history, psychology and anthropology due to increase in subjective questions in the competition.
Pramod Kumar Singh of PC Banerjee Hostel said that selection of candidates with subjects like Hindi, Sanskrit, History, Political Science and Defence Studies in the Civil Services signifies a change in the trend since last two three years.
The noticeable selection of Hindi medium students with high ranks has boosted the moral of students with Hindi medium background. However many students also said that luck plays an important role and wished that their luck supports them next time.
