Bhubaneswar: There is no shortcut to success and ceaseless hard work with strong determination never goes in vein. No matter how hard your life is, if you have set your goal and make endless efforts to achieve it, then no one can stop you.
This is exactly what it had been like for Kumar Biswaranjan, who cracked the UPSC Examination, results of which were declared yesterday. Beating all odds, Biswaranjan, son of a farmer, has ranked 182 in the civil service exam in all India level.
Born in a poor family in Beruan village of Jagatsinghpur district, Biswaranjan had experienced adversity during childhood. However, his parents never wanted the financial constraint to be an obstacle in their children’s studies. To give them good education, mother Minati came to capital city Bhubaneswar with her children in 2003. Staying in a rented house in Sector-3 of Niladri Vihar area, Minati started tailoring work to support her husband Benudhar, a farmer, to make ends meet.
Starting from scratch in a city like Bhubaneswar, Minati excelled in her work and now successfully running her tailoring business. Inspired by his parents, Biswaranjan worked hard and went on excelling in his studies.
A student of Saraswati Sishu Vidya Mandir in Niladri Vihar, Biswaranjan had ranked sixth in the state in Matric examination and eighth in Plus Two Science exam. He started preparation for civil service during his BTech days in IIT Guwahati. In November 2016, he went to Delhi to collect study materials and had been dedicatedly preparing for the UPSC exam.
With hard work and dedication, he cracked the UPSC Exam in 2019 with 182 rank. He had also secured 391-rank in the civil service exam in 2018 and worked in Indian Railway Accounts Service (IRAS).
With his achievement, Biswaranjan has certainly set an inspiration for many other aspirants of the civil service exam.
