Hey everyone, seeing ki kisi ne abhi tak result ka kuch significant comment nahi kiya let me kick things off. I’m not clearing, this was my last attempt. Most people here might not remember me (or my bread puns) but I have been a longtime member of Forum and have been keeping a low profile for the past two attempts. I had sincerely hoped that this attempt would be “the attempt”, especially given that I have many friends who are in service already. I had hoped that it wouldn’t be much longer before I had the coveted three letters before my name as well. But if anything, I have learnt equanimity from giving this exam. I know will never have “another attempt, another mains, another fact sheet to memorise” but that’s just life. It’s neither bad, nor good, it just is. Life just goes on (a cruel thought to some and perhaps a comfort to others). So for me too life will go on, however this is a chapter I shall lay to rest.

To those who are still giving their attempts and are still in this exam process, hang in there. This exam will eat away from you, if you let it. It is your responsibility to yourself to not let it become anything more that what it is, an exam. Many people will try to convince you otherwise (particularly coachings) but it isn’t. At the end of the day it is another exam for another government job, which comes with its fair share of good and bad days, just like any other government job. I say this because as I currently type this message I’m sitting in a small village in Karnataka which has zero network but the most stunning views. Some of the most deprived tribal learners but also the most inane school politics that revolve around “kis teacher ko kaunsa staffroom mila”. So keep your head up and never let this exam limit you, in terms of how you view yourself, or how you view success.


Before I sign off, I have a lot of good people to thank, those who have stood by me and my seemingly endless journey. Firstly, my parents who have been subject to the process without any complaints and much choice. We do not realise it but our parents suffer as much if not more. My friends outside the UPSC circle who have been patient with my eccentric schedule and my lame excuses for not being able to meet (unke liye missing a hangout to attempt a test is quite lame- as it should be :p). My friends in the UPSC circle, my fellow comrades forged out of shared pains and joys @sstarrr @Steph_Curry @Rashmirathi @HeNeArKr @AzadHindFauz @Celeborn @Infinitybeyondinfinity @Jammu @KingSlayer23 and other veterans who have moved on to other wonderful things. As well as to the wonderful teachers who have helped me get as far as I got. I am yet to meet a teacher with the kind of insane work ethic that Dipin sir possesses. Most of all, thanks to Forum, for helping me find a space of my own, my friends, but more importantly for helping me fall in love with the prep journey all over again when i was feeling untethered and adrift. 

It’s not quite the sign-off I was expecting, but for one last time, let’s get this bread!

we had a good run, didn't we?  :)

It is a sign-off from me as well, time to explore new avenues, and who knows we might still find a way to contribute positively to society. 

@Steph_Curry @Celeborn @necromancer interview prep with you guys will remain my fondest memory in these 6 years. Damn, it was good!

Until next time :)

We did have a great run.

 I only have this photo for you to see. You'll get the idea.




This is a frustrated Kobe Bryant venting on Facebook on the night he suffered a season (and potentially career) ending achilles tear at the age of 35!! Almost everyone counted him out but he came back from that. And played 3 more seasons!! 



This man knew no quit, and so do you!!<3

Out in my last attempt, the 9th one, changed optional from Geography to Maths for the last one and took 2 years break. The real frustration is not being able to evaluate my performance in Mains with Maths, despite dedicating much more time to it. But it is what it is. Although a working professional, the pain is no lesser.

Dear Bread!!


I have known you for the past 3 years now. I have always admired your resilience and 'laughing in the face of adversity' waala attitude and will always do. You are among my first friends at Forum and our bond will stay forever. That's for sure.


I don't know what to say except for the fact that this exam, while significant, does not define our worth or the incredible potential we possess. Our efforts have not been in vain; the knowledge and skills we've gained along the way will always remain with us. Life often has a way of guiding us towards paths we never imagined but which ultimately lead to very fulfilling and rewarding destinations. This result is just a new chapter waiting to unfold for you.



You have inspired me and so many others in ways you don't even know. 


Thank you for everything! The screenshot below is from my notes (from sometime in 2021).












With warmest regards and love! 

Steph Curry (Utkarsh)

Mere pyaare Utkarsh, rulayega kya? But for real, you’ve been a constant and honestly made this process so much more enjoyable. The energy of that YPT group was honestly the stuff that people write about. Thanks for being a part of that magic. I know I shall always have a friend in you, and you shall always have a place in my heart, dost.

In for the 2024 Mains :)

Checked only with Insights, was scoring 116. 


The only contentment right now is being able to check all the boxes that an aspirant needs to check for prelims. However, real monster called Mains awaits us all !


Again, I am utterly pained by some of the finest people being eliminated by a very uncertain stage. There is nothing that we can say to console the stalwarts who have been eliminated. All I can say is: I carry the highest respect for you all for giving your best. 


For me, you all are successful for you and me both are aware about the intellectual and emotional growth that you carry within you. The rest of the world will take a little time to appreciate that but we as aspirants know what metal you all are made of and the value you can deliver ! 


You are successful because #Taiyaari_hi_jeet_hai and I am sure you left no stone unturned in the Taiyaari you did. Lots of love and respect for you all ! Wishing you good health and excellence for future endeavours :)

Bread, I don't know where to start from and what to say. You should just know this bread, you are one of a kind person who I have met in this UPSC journey and I would be forever grateful for that. You are strong and you have this amazing attitude which helps you deal with whatever comes your way. I remember when I didn't see my name in the list this time, I knew I had to talk to you, you have become that person for me.  You have helped me in immense ways that you don't even know. So, thanks for being there for me. 

I have been with you since the last 2-3 years, I know what you have gone through , how you have dealt with all the issues that came your way and what all you did. You did the best you could do and you could have not done anything better. Now this result, which doesn't define you or the capability you possess, is a way forward to do amazing stuff in life. I am sure you would be doing great in your life. And you will always have me their as a sister for you whatever be the circumstances. Bas itna hi.  Come soon and meet me :) 

@KingSlayer23 Bro, I have also known you since my 2022 mains, I know what kind of a person you are and what efforts you have made. I wish you the best for your upcoming endeavours. I know you will be doing great things :) 

To all, this was my 4th attempt and I didn't clear. No complaints, no regrets. 

Jo log mains de rhe hai fodd do, ache se dena. Good luck :)
