My focus was to cover targeted syllabus every day. UPSC demands consistency & sometime I felt that I was not consistent but my father encouraged me for same.

As Pradeep “My few friends also helped me in cracking this exam. I have achieved this feat by doing self-study. At one time, I thought to stop preparing for IAS, but my father encourage me not to lose patience & do hard work. Self-motivation is the key to achieve any goal, whatever you want to achieve. Don’t listen to what others are saying; listen only of your inner.

Pradeep’s father Sukhbir Singh said that he had shifted his family to Sonipat in early 2000’s for his children’s education.

“I had told Pradeep to make constant efforts to become an IAS and do not think about from where I will bring money for his study. Today, he made every Haryana resident proud. He told me that UPSC has declared results and when I asked him about his result, he came close to me and said he had topped the exam by hugging me. I want to tell all farmers’ and labourers that their children have more appetite to become an IAS”, his father added.
