Amid protest at Delhi border, a farmer’s daughter clears UPSC, becomes IAS- she will serve the farmers

Ever since the three farm bills were passed in both the houses of the Parliament, farmers have been holding several protests and staging dharna around the Delhi borders. Protest doesn’t seem to be getting over in the national capital.

Meanwhile, a daughter of a farmer has surprised everyone by clearing India’s toughest exam UPSC. Clearing UPSC exam needs some serious piece of hard work, grit and determination. Students who get started on the path towards achieving their goals always give their heart to pull off something special.

Everyone dreams to clear the Civil Services Exam, but very few are fortunate to crack the exam. Today, we are talking about such a woman named Tapasya Parihar who cracked the exam in just her second attempt, while there are many people who do not dare to appear for the second attempt.

This story is quite inspiring. If you come to know the story of Tapasya Parihar, you will be perplexed for sure. The 25-year-old Tapasya comes from an underdeveloped village of Narsinghpur has secured 23rd rank in the UPSC results. She hails from Jowa village which is about 10km from Narsinghpur (Madhya Pradesh). Her father is a farmer and mother is the Sarpanch of the village. She did her schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya Narsinghpur. Thereafter, she completed her graduation in Law from ILS Law College, Pune. After completing the law, she started preparing for UPSC. Later on, she went to Delhi to prepare for the exam and she joined a coaching class there, but her experience was not up to the mark with the coaching class. She subsequently started self-preparation.


Being a daughter of a farmer, she had gone through a lot of struggles, but she never gave up and accepted all challenges in a positive manner. Despite all the difficulties and hardships she had faced, Tapasya touched the pinnacle of success.

When asked about her pre-college life, she said, “I decided to pursue civil services after I got my 12th board exam results. I had got a good rank in the merit list and that is when I decided that I would prepare for UPSC CSE.”

How did you decide to pursue law? “My stream was science in twelfth std., but I didn’t want to go for engineering. Moreover, one needs to be a graduate to appear for the CSE. Therefore, I chose law keeping in mind my long-term goal of joining civil service, as I believed the study of law would facilitate better administration.”

She has now become a source of inspiration for many youths who dream to be IAS or IPS. She has achieved what others dream of. Many people read her inspirational story and get motivated. Let’s praise her for a big achievement.
