Patna, Sep 26: Cracking competitive exams like the UPSC takes an immense amount of hard work, passion and determination. And when circumstances are tough and resources scant, it becomes all the more challenging.
This youngster from Bihar however has proved that no hurdle is too high to overcome. Anil Bosak, son of an ordinary cloth seller from Kishanganj, has cleared the UPSC with flying colours, securing the 45th all-India rank.
An IIT Delhi graduate from the 2018 batch, Anil cleared the UPSC in his third attempt. In his earlier attempt he had secured a ranking of 616, and decided to appear again this time.
His father Binod Bosak is proud of his son's achievement, and termed it a 'dream'. "It was very difficult (initially). I think this is a dream. I am not educated," he told NDTV.
The family lives in a small house and Binod makes ends meet by selling clothes on his bicycle. Binod said that just the fact that his son had qualified for IIT Delhi had made the family happy. "I thought now he will work. But he said he will prepare for the UPSC. His teacher also helped him a lot, he even offered to help monetarily," he said.
Congratulatory messages have not stopped pouring on the family ever since the results were announced. The family has been busy sharing sweets, answering phone calls and posing for cameras.
Anil's brother Babul said that his achievement was a great moment for the entire district.
The UPSC results were declared on September 23. A total of 761 candidates cleared the civil services examination.
