VIT's Sahil Gupta secures 19th rank in Civil Services
Sahil Gupta represents those youth in the country who refuse to be bogged down. In his third attempt, this 25-year-old youth from Haryana has made his state, his family and his alma mater in Tamil Nadu very proud.
Gupta has achieved the all-India 19th ranking in the civil services examinations. A native of Jhajjar district in Haryana, Gupta, a BTech graduate from VIT University, earlier was selected for the interview after the main examinations. The results were a tad disappointing but it did not stop him.
"My parents fully supported me. They said they were prepared to go to any length to support in my preparation for civil services," he says. He then moved to New Delhi.
"It was during my third year that I started to think about what next after college. I was also wondering if I should pursue management. I firmed up my belief in civil services in the fourth year," he said.
