appeared for civil services examination,” Bhushan told HT.
Jaipur-resident Ayushi Sharma, who secured AIR 155, had
completed her engineering from Ganga University in 2013, but had always aspired
to become a civil servant. “I have been preparing for the civil service
examinations for the past one year...As a child, I always wanted to become a
