From Khowai in Tripura to UPSC, learn Sumit Paul’s journey

Agartala: The Tripura boy Sumit Paul, who secured the 530th rank in the recently declared UPSC civil services exams 2020 results, has an encouraging story to share. A long journey that started with a lesser known Khowai’s Sonatala village ended with a bang in securing a good rank in UPSC Civil Services Exam.

Paul did know little that he would join the Indian Administrative Services one day but had a clear idea to hit something big. His academic career says it all. After his primary schooling in Sonatala Senior Basic School, he took admission to Khowai higher secondary school. After passing 10th board, Paul came to Agartala and studied for two years at Umakanta academy. Paul cracked the IIT entrance and completed his graduation from the oldest IIT of the country, IIT Kharagpur.

“I got a campus placement with a good salary structure. The job was quite high-paying but it failed to fulfil my aspirations from life. I worked for seven months at a stretch and then decided to quit the job to prepare for UPSC exams. It was 2015, when I started my preparations and in 2021. I finally cracked the prestigious exams,” said Paul in an exclusive interview with RiseEast.

While speaking about his experience, he said, “Cracking UPSC is not easy but if you are determined to crack it, no one can stop you. With the advent of technology, anybody can study anything from anywhere. I think preparing for UPSC has become easier but the efforts need to be persistent”. When asked about how it feels to crack the most important exams of the country, he said, he is feeling great and he can easily get IRS or IPS but he wants to invest more time.

“I want to appear for the exams once again. The preliminary exams are scheduled in October so I am very busy with the preparation right now,” he added. While giving suggestions to the aspirants, he said, “I think students should stick to the basics and study hard determinedly. There is no alternative to hard-work in UPSC.”
