“I’d like to share with you a moment I am never going to forget. As I bid adieu to Pavan Sir in Sep-2009 before the Mains, having followed each and every advice of his, he closed the conversation by saying I’d score at least 350 in Public Administration no matter how strict the checking could be and that my name would figure in the Top 10, as I had mastered Pub Ad and other subjects, the way he perceived it was necessary to crack the exam. Eight months later, I got the reward of blindly following his advice and having full faith in him and found that I had scored 367 (183+194) in Pub Ad. My best wishes to him and all the civil services aspirants.”
