Sindhu, a girl from the city, has bagged the 17th rank in the examination
conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) recently.
Sindhu, an Electronics and Communication engineering graduate, is the daughter
of Prof. K.L. Bhargava Ram and Prof. C.K. Nalinakshi, residents of T.K. Layout
Sindhu is learnt to have studied at Rotary West School, Sadvidya School and
National Institute of Engineering (NIE). She was said to have been selected in a
campus interview at NIE and worked for two years at a software firm in
Bangalore. After relinquishing the job, she prepared for an year for the UPSC
examination and came out with flying colours in her first attempt itself.
Sindhu chose Public Administration and Social Science as her subjects for IAS
examination, real tough nuts to crack for an engineer and she did it
excellently. Speaking to the media, Sindhu said: "A desire to excel coupled with
effort definitely pays. I took IAS coaching for a short time in Bangalore but
the rest of the hard work was my own."
