IAS Topper 2009 Shubhra saxena
Shubhra Saxena stood first in the CIVIL Service Exams held in 2008-09.
New Delhi: It was the urge to serve the country's rural population that made 30-year-old Shubhra Saxena to quit her well-paid IT job four years back and prepare for civil service examinations, says the UPSC topper.
"It is a very good feeling. Every person achieves victory at their own pace," an elated Saxena said, minutes after the news trickled in that she topped the 2008 civil services examination.
She attributed her feat to her "loving" parents and husband, saying they "were very much supportive when I expressed my desire to appear for civil services."
The software engineer, an alumnus of IIT-Rourkee, said she quit her well-paid IT job as she always had a urge to serve the rural population, who are deprived of of even basic facilities such as education and drinking water.
.All the best.
