'Egg vendor' gives free coaching to civil services aspirants in Bihar

'Egg vendor' gives free coaching to civil services aspirants in Bihar



Manoj Kumar Roy, now an Indian Ordnance Factory Service officer, sold eggs, worked as a vegetable vendor and even mopped the floors of an office to earn a living during his struggling days.
He sold eggs, worked as a vegetable vendor and even mopped the floors of an office to earn a living during his struggling days in Delhi. Sheer grit and hard work only helped Manoj Kumar Roy, who hails from Bihar, brave all odds and bag the 870th rank in the coveted central services exam in 2010.

Roy (35) - now an Indian Ordnance Factory Service (IOFS) officer - spends his weekends grooming poor students of his state to help them crack the UPSC exam.

"The service is absolutely free," he said.

Roy travels 110km from Nalanda, where he is posted as an administrative officer at Rajgir Ordnance factory, to Patna every weekend.

"When I cracked the civil services in my fourth attempt, I thought about many youngsters who could not afford the costly coaching," he said. "So I decided to extend my help to them." Roy said he was lucky to get his first posting at Rajgir in his home state. "I was allotted the IOFS on the basis of my rank in the UPSC exam," he said.

Roy started providing free coaching to deserving and poor children soon after he was posted at Rajgir. "Most of my students belong to poor or lower middle class families," he said.

Roy's mission is supported by his wife Anupama Kumari, a deputy collector in Patna City. "My wife has qualified the Bihar Public Service Examination," he said. "I asked her to coach and share her experiences with my students. She readily agreed to my request." Most of his successful students owe their success to Roy. Reshu Krishna, who scored the 13th rank in the BPSC examination and qualified for the post of deputy superintendent of police, said she had benefited immensely from Roy's classes.

"Sir (Roy) used to teach us geography and general studies," she said. "His tips were invaluable to all of us." Arun Kumar, who came 390th in the same examination, said Roy inspired him to appear for the BPSC exam. "I came in contact with Roy sir during my college days," he said. "When I failed to qualify in the UPSC examination and the Bihar Police's recruitment test for sub-inspectors, Roy sir motivated me and helped me crack the state civil services examination," Arun said.

As many as 45 students, who were trained by Roy, have qualified the recent combined BPSC exam of three batches

EVERYDAY SCIENCE


Q. Why are cloudy days cooler, but cloudy nights warmer than the clear ones ?


A. Because clouds do not allow the sunrays to fall on the earth. Moreover, clouds can absorb much heat radiation as compared to dry air. Both these factors prevent the earth from becoming too much heated. Hence, cloudy days are comparatively cool.


Q. Why does the ice not readily melt when salt is sprinkled over it ?


A. When salt is sprinkled over ice, some of it dissolves. As dissolution of the salt is accompanied by absorption of heat, the temperature of the system will fall below 0°C. Hence, ice does not melt readily.


Q. Explain how dew is formed.


A. The objects on the surface of the earth receive direct heat rays from the sun during day time and get heated up. During night, objects lose heat by radiation and their temperature falls. Those objects which are good radiators of heat radiate heat more quickly and get cooled below the temperature of the surroundings. Air, on coming in contact with these cooled objects, in turn loses its heat and becomes saturated with the vapour it contains. If the temperature of air is reduced to its dew point, the water vapour present in it condenses to form dew which collects on the surface of the cold bodies. Dew is generally formed on green plants, leaves and grass as they are good radiators of heat.

Milkman’s son Ravikant Singh who cracked UPSC against all odds! -

Milkman’s son Ravikant Singh who cracked UPSC against all odds! - 



Remember, it was Ravikant Singh, who gave a clean chit to IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal who was suspended in July for allegedly ordering demolition of a wall of a religious shrine in her sub-division within Gautam Budh Nagar, popularly called Noida.

Cracking the IAS usually means months of expensive tuitions and at least two or three attempts and it helps if you are in one of the country's big cities.However, two young men from Bihar whose financial means are modest, to say the least, have smashed that myth. The duo has made the grade merely out of sheer hard work and meticulous planning. A booking clerk by day at a remote railway station in West Bengal and an IAS aspirant by night, Ravikant successfully juggled the twin roles out of his dogged determination.''My father sells milk in the village. Our financial condition hasn't been good. That is why I decided to become an IAS, since it is considered impossible,'' says Ravikant, who has achieved 77th rank in the UPSC examination 2008.

Ravikant had a colleague-in-arms in Keswendra Kumar, also a booking clerk from Bihar posted in Bengal. Both nursed similar ambitions since joining the railways four years ago. Their success has burst a myth.''You don't need to be in Delhi or other big cities for that matter to clear the civil service entrance test. All those who are struggling and aspire to make it big in life, keep trying and you will never fail in life,'' says Keshwendra, IAS rank 45. Kumar was allotted the Kerala cadre.

2008 batch UP cadre IAS and district magistrate Kumar Ravikant Singh was transferred from Gautam Budh Nagar, the UP district that generates 25% of the state’s total revenue and houses plants of multinational companies such as Daewoo Motor, Honda, BPL, LG, HCL etc., a reason why state political bigwigs don’t want independent-minded bureaucrats to rule there for long. Singh is now wait-listed, meaning that…
he has no office to attend till he gets a new posting.

Awe-inspiring: From Waiter to an IAS Officer (Top Rated Story)



Awe-inspiring: From Waiter to an IAS Officer (Top Rated Story)



Inspired by the spider, the Scottish king Robert the Bruce told his men, 'If you don't succeed the first time, try, try and try again'
K Jayaganesh's story is similar. He failed the civil service examination six times but never lost heart. The seventh time -- his last chance -- he passed with a rank of 156 and has been selected for the Indian Administrative Service.
Jayaganesh's story is inspiring not because he did not lose heart but also because he comes from a very poor background in a village in Tamil Nadu, and though he studied to be an engineer, he worked at odd jobs, even as a waiter for a short while, to realise his dream of becoming an IAS officer.
Read on for Jayaganesh's inspiring achievement, in his own words:
Childhood in a remote village
I was born and brought up in a small village called Vinavamangalam in Vellore district. My father Krishnan, who had studied up to the tenth standard, worked as a supervisor in a leather factory. My mother was a housewife. I am the eldest in the family and have two sisters and a brother. I studied up to the 8th standard in the village school and completed my schooling in a nearby town.
I was quite good at studies and always stood first. Coming from a poor family, I had only one ambition in life -- to get a job as fast as I could and help my father in running the family. My father got Rs 4,500 as salary and he had to take care of the education of four children and run the family, which you know is very difficult.
So, after my 10th standard, I joined a polytechnic college because I was told I would get a job the moment I passed out from there. When I passed out with 91 per cent, there was a chance for me to get entry to a government engineering college on merit. So I decided to join the Thanthai Periyar Government Engineering College to study mechanical engineering. My father supported my desire to study further.
Even while doing engineering, my ambition was still to get a job. If you look at my background, you will understand why I didn't have any big ambitions. Most of my friends in the village had studied only up to the 10th standard, and many did not even complete school. They worked as auto drivers or coolies or masons. I was the only one among my friends who went to college.
I understood the importance of education because of my parents. My father was the only one in his family to have completed school, so he knew the value of education. My parents saw to it that we children studied well.
In search of a job
Four days after I completed my engineering in 2000, I went to Bangalore in search of a job and I one without much difficulty. My salary was Rs 2,500 at a company that reconditioned tools.
It was in Bangalore that I started thinking about my village and my friends. I wondered sadly why none of them studied and worked in good companies. Because they had no education, they always remained poor. There was not enough money to buy even proper food. There was no opportunity there; the only place they could work was the tannery in the nearby town. If they didn't get work at the tannery, they worked as auto drivers or coolies. In short, there was no one in my village to guide the young generation.
I thought would I be able to help my villagers in any way?
Getting interested in the civil service examination
Till then, I had not even heard of something called the civil services examination. It was only after I went to Bangalore and saw the world that I was exposed to many things. I came to know that a collector in a small place could do a lot. At that moment, I decided that I wanted to be an IAS officer.
I resigned and went home to prepare for the examination. I never thought resigning was risky because I had the confidence and knew I would do well.
My father also supported me wholeheartedly. He had just got a bonus of Rs 6,500 and he gave me that money to buy study material. I sat in my village and studied from the notes I received by post from Chennai.
Failed attempts
In my first two attempts, I could not even clear the preliminary examination. I had no idea how to prepare for the exam, what subjects to opt for and how to study. There was nobody to guide me.
I had taken mechanical engineering as my main subject. That's when I met Uma Surya in Vellore. He was also preparing for the examination. He told me that if I took sociology as an option, it would be easy.
Even with sociology as the main subject, I failed in the third attempt. But I was not disappointed. I knew why I was failing. I didn't have proper guidance. I started reading newspapers only after I started preparing for the examination! So you can imagine from what kind of background I came from.
To Chennai for coaching
When I came to know about the government coaching centre (external link) in Chennai, I wrote the entrance examination and was selected. We were given accommodation and training.
Because I got tips from those who passed out, I passed the preliminary in my fourth attempt. We were given free accommodation and food only till we wrote the main examination. After that, we had to move out. I didn't want to go back to the village but staying in Chennai also was expensive.
I tried to get a job as an engineer but my efforts turned futile. I then decided to look for a part time job so that I would have time to study.
Working as a waiter in Chennai
I got a job as a billing clerk for computer billing in the canteen at Sathyam Cinemas. I also worked as the server during the interval. It never bothered me that I, a mechanical engineer, preparing for the civil services, had to work as a server. I had only one aim -- to stay on in Chennai to pass the examination.
Attending the interview in Delhi
After I got the job at the Sathyam Cinemas, I was called for the interview. As counselling was my hobby, a lot of questions were asked about counselling. I was not very fluent in English but I managed to convey whatever I wanted to. Perhaps I did not articulate well. I failed in the interview.
Preliminary again, the 5th time
Once again, I started from the beginning. Surprisingly, I failed in the preliminary itself. On analysis, I felt I did not concentrate on studies as I was working at Sathyam Cinemas.
I quit the job and joined a private firm to teach sociology to those preparing for the UPSC examinations. While I learnt the other subjects there, I taught sociology. Many friends of mine in Chennai helped me both financially and otherwise while I prepared for the examination.
Sixth attempt
I passed both the preliminary and the main in the sixth attempt but failed at the interview stage.
While preparing for the interview, I had written an examination to be an officer with the Intelligence Bureau and I was selected. I was in a dilemma whether to accept the job. I felt if I joined the IB, once again, my preparation to be an IAS officer would get affected. So, I decided not to join and started preparing for one last time.
Last attempt
I had to give the last preliminary just a few days after the previous interview. I was confused and scared. Finally, I decided to take the last chance and write the examination. Like I had hoped, I passed both the preliminary and the main.
The interview was in April, 2008 at Delhi. I was asked about Tamil Nadu, Kamaraj, Periyar, Tamil as a classical language, the link between politics and Tamil cinema etc. I was upset since I did not wish the interviewers at the start and they did not respond when I said thanks at the end. Both the incidents went on playing in my mind. I just prayed to God and walked back.
The day the results were out
I was extremely tense that day. I would know whether my dreams would be realised or not. I used to tell God, please let me pass if you feel I am worthy of it.
I went to a playground and sat there meditating for a while. Then, I started thinking what I should do if I passed and what I should do if I didn't.
I had only one dream for the last seven years and that was to be an IAS officer.
156th rank
Finally when the results came, I couldn't believe myself. I had secured the 156th rank out of more than 700 selected candidates. It's a top rank and I am sure to get into the IAS.
I felt like I had a won a war that had been going on for many years. I felt free and relieved.
The first thing I did was call my friends in Chennai and then my parents to convey the good news.
Warm welcome in the village
The reception I got in my village was unbelievable. All my friends, and the entire village, were waiting for me when I alighted from the bus. They garlanded me, burst crackers, played music and took me around the village on their shoulders. The entire village came to my house to wish me. That was when I saw unity among my villagers. It was a defining moment for me
What I want to do
I worked really hard without losing faith in myself to realise my dream. My real work starts now. I want to try hard to eradicate poverty and spread the message of education to all people. Education is the best tool to eradicate poverty. I want Tamil Nadu also to be a literate state like Kerala.
Just take my example. I could come out of a poor background to this level only because of education. I didn't get any guidance when I was young. So I want to give proper guidance to the youth in the villages. They have the ability to go up but there is nobody to guide them. I want to be a guiding force to such youngsters. As I come from that background, I understand them best.
Reservations
I strongly feel that reservations are needed to uplift the section of society that is at the bottom. Unless you lift them up, they can't come up. As they had been at the bottom for thousands of years, they are not equipped to compete with the higher sections of society.
Now that I am going to be an IAS officer, I will move to the creamy layer in reservations. My children would be from a background that is totally different from what mine was. If I continue taking the benefits of reservation, I would be doing injustice to society. So, I will not take the benefits again.
