About me

I never did well in school or college.

My only interest was in Bodybuilding and Weightlifting. The UPSC examination was the FIRST and ONLY competitive examination I undertook and was able to clear it three times in a row.

Joining the Indian Revenue Services IRS is the first and only job of my life so far. Honestly speaking, this is not because I have some exceptional talent or anything like that. I just used a lot of tricks and techniques to make my life easier, which I will share with you in this blog. But something extraordinary happened to me during my preparation days.

I fell in love with learning.
