The sudden death of father

Elder brother also died months later

It was only a couple of months after the death of Himanshu's father that his brother also died. Himanshu was shattered and broken. After this, he lost focus on his studies and began living at home.

Uncle took care of him

Then, his uncle took care of him and sent him to study. Himanshu had by then decided to clear the UPSC exam anyhow. He worked hard day and night and fulfilled his dream by securing 26th rank in UPSC in the very first attempt.

Himanshu was weak in academics

Himanshu Nagpal belongs to a village in Haryana and did his intermediate education in the Hindi medium. He wasn't very smart. When he visited the college for the first time, his father also went there with him. Seeing the list of toppers there, his father said to Himanshu that he wanted to see his name on the list. When his father was returning home, he met with an accident and died.

One has got to start from zero while preparing for UPSC
