Awe-inspiring: The waiter who will be an IAS officer
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'
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.
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.
