Ravi Kumar Sihag
UPSC 2021 final result has been released. In which 26-year-old Ravi Kumar Sihag, a resident of Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, has secured 18th rank across the country. But this is not the first time that Ravi has cleared the UPSC exam. Ravi has already cleared the civil services examination by securing 337th rank in 2018 and 317th rank in 2019. But Ravi kept working hard to fulfill the dream of becoming an IAS and this time he fulfilled his dream not only by securing 18th rank. Rather have achieved Paheli rank across the country in Hindi medium.
worked in the fields with father
Ravi told that from the time he started to understand, he worked in the fields in the village with his father till he completed his BA studies. Then father often used to go to the collectorate with the villagers with the problems of agriculture, irrigation or village. So that the collector can solve their problem. At that time, after hearing the praise of the collector from my father and the villagers, I was determined that I would solve the problems of the people by becoming a collector. But he could not become a collector in his initial attempt in UPSC. But I did not give up and kept working hard. After this, now I saw in my childhood my dream has come true.
Study in government school, start preparation at home
Ravi’s father Ram Kumar Sihag, who has cracked the UPSC exam thrice, still does farming in the village. While mother Vimala Devi is the duodenum. Ravi is the youngest of four siblings. Due to the weak financial condition of the family, Ravi did his early education in a government school. After completing his graduation in 2015, due to the weak financial condition of the family, Ravi started preparing for UPSC along with farming by staying at home. After this, in the year 2016, Ravi’s father barely collected the money and sent him to Delhi for preparation. Two years later, in his first attempt, Ravi cleared the UPSC exam in 2018. In which he was selected for the Indian Railway Traffic Service. After this he once again passed the exam in 2019. After which he was selected in the Indian Defense Ministry. But during the training itself, Ravi once again fulfilled the dream of his father by passing the UPSC exam.
English is also necessary along with Hindi
Ravi said that students preparing for UPSC are not confident about Hindi medium. While this is completely wrong. I myself am a student of Hindi medium. Despite this, I have not only cracked the UPSC exam thrice. Rather, Hindi Medium has also been topped. I think Hindi medium students can also clear UPSC exam easily. But to become an officer it is necessary to know English also. We cannot ignore English.
