3 things you can learn from UPSC exam’s top 3 rank holders — Anudeep Durishetty, Anu Kumari and Sachin Gupta

IF Anudeep Durishetty of Telangana who topped the civil services exam 2017, symbolises perseverance, it is sheer determination which made Haryana’s Anu Kumari, a mother of a four-year-old child, the all india 2nd rank holder. Then, what you can learn from Sachin Gupta, who bagged 3rd rank in UPSC? Yes, it’s how not to…
get confused with overflow of information in today’s world of Internet. 
For the first rank holder Durishetty, who had worked in the Google as a software engineer and then joined Indian Revenue Service, this was his fifth attempt. He told TV channels how he had failed in three out of five attempts, but did not lose hope to emerge as India’s No 1. 
Let’s then take the case of Anu Kumari belonging to Haryana’s Sonipat. It was her second attempt, and she managed to secure All India Rank 2. Look at her determination. She left her private job, looked after her child and then prepared for 10 to 12 hours every day from a remote place in Haryana. And she succeeded to be the 2nd over-all topper and the first among the women candidates. 
Finally, the story of Sachin Gupta who bagged 3rd rank in UPSC will tell you about smart reading. In a TV interview, he said how internet makes you confused because an overdose of information does not necessarily give you better marks. His secret of success is about smart reading of select materials and repeatedly revise it.
