Vishakha Yadav and Navneet Mann- Their inspirational journey

Vishakha Yadav, who secured 6th rank in the exam is a resident of Kuran Garden in New Delhi and used to study for 10 hours a day to score well in the exams. Vishakha gave up her multinational company job and appeared for the exams. She failed the first two times but did not lose hope. The third time was the charm for her. She succeeded! Vishakha was felicitated by the Delhi Police and her proud father ASI Raj Kumar distributed sweets in his department yesterday. 

Twenty-five-year-old Navneet Mann, the daughter of a Delhi Police inspector Sukhdev Singh Mann said she was a bit stunt but was extremely happy and satisfied to have secured the 33rd rank in her second attempt.

She was at the hospital when she received the news. “I immediately called up my father and informed him. Even though I couldn’t see his initial reaction, I was extremely happy and more than satisfied with the results,” she said.

Navneet was a science student and wished to do Masters in Business Administration from one o the IIMs. She had planned to secure a high paying job in a multinational company. She said, “I started questioning myself and gave a good thought about it. I asked myself If this is what I want and will I be happy even after 10 years? Then my father suggested me to try for UPSC. I thought about it for over three-four months and then started working on it.”

She completed her B.tech in Computer Science from Indira Gandhi Technical University, Kashmere Gate, in 2017. After this, she appeared for the UPSC exam and was ranked 501 in her first attempt. She went ahead to join the training for the Indian Defence Account Service in Pune but not being satisfied with her post she tried again and succeeded.

On being asked about the study hours she said, ” I studied for six-seven hours on an average daily, followed my routine, stayed focus. At times, when I felt I missed out, due to college exams or training, I always made it a point to read newspapers. It’s very important that you stay updated with current affairs and that really helped me a lot.”

Being motivated by her father, Mann said, “my father has been my biggest motivation. I have had the first-hand experience of watching him handle tough situations. There have been days when he came home only once in a week and trying to handle demonstrations. He always shared his on-ground experiences with me and that motivated me. I wasn’t afraid. In fact, it made me realise how all this is part of public service.”
