“Don't take it as a task, enjoy what you study.“
This is Prakash Rajpurohit's advice to all those planning to sit for the Union
Public Service Commission exam. All of 24, Rajpurohit has stood second in this
IAS 2nd Rank Prakash Rajpurohit'- 2009
On an average, he would study for 10 hours
daily. “The preparation is time consuming due to the vast syllabus, but if you
enjoy studying, it isn't difficult,“ said this IIT-Delhi graduate from Barmer,
He is presently in Ghaziabad.
An electrical engineer, Rajpurohit was sitting
for the exam a second time.
The only child of his parents, he considers them
his biggest strength. It was their pep talk that pulled him out of his dis-
appointment after he did not qualify in his first attempt.
“They ensured I didn't hang on to the disappointment,“ he said.
This year, however, he was confident of cracking
the exam and securing a rank. “My exams went well. I knew I would get it,“ he
However, he hadn't thought of sitting for the
civil services until after his graduation. “I was analyzing my options. Sitting
for the civil services appealed to me the most,“ he said.
During the one year of preparation, Rajpurohit
had his share of fun too. He didn't miss a sin- gle movie released in the
country. “I'm a movie buff. Movies were my only source of relaxation,“ he said.
For the last six months, Rajpurohit taught at a
local IIT coaching institute to keep his mind off the tension of results.
“I had to divert my mind from the results. Also, teaching is a great
stress-buster,“ said Rajpurohit, who was off to have dinner with his family at
some `nice' place, when Hindustan Times spoke to him.
