Joysar has done his parents proud. Son of a farmer, he has topped the list of
those who have cleared the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams from
Gujarat. The results were announced on Wednesday. At the national level, he
Joysar hails from a farmer's family in Nundhatad village in Kutch district.
It was his 4th and final attempt. He is first in his family who will serve the
government. "I'm reasonably satisfied with this result, though I expected a much
higher rank. Since this was my last attempt, I will have to accept this
outcome," Joysar told DNA. He said he could study for around 7-8 hours daily. "I
was a probationary officer in a bank. And during exams, I took leave and studied
for 12 hours a day," added Joysar.
A B.Com from a college in Bhuj, Joysar's optional subjects for UPSC main
examinations were public administration and philosophy. Joysar's roommate Manish
Ajudia secured the state's second rank (national rank 261) with zoology and
Gujarati literature as his optional subjects. Both Manish and Hitesh are the
first in their families to clear a civil services examination.
