This post reaches your inbox after much deliberation, on a plethora of issues that we would like to brainstorm upon with our fellow aspirants— you!
Initially, after riding on the ‘high’ of your success as well as the ‘lows’ of many next-times, we thought of letting this particular aspect of bringing forth some points concerning us, go! But when we looked back and took a view from where we are standing right now, addressing some important factors that fueled our journey both positively and negatively, seemed inevitable.
There’s a very old saying— The amount of fire that engulfs the stone is directly proportional to the shine, that particular stone exhibits, after attaining the position of being called a ‘Gold’!
We did enter the fire barefooted, and we believe truly, that the fire has just started igniting our desire to emerge victorious. The results are a living testimony to the same. And if we talk about the most important component of that fire— it’s YOU—
You were the ones standing by our side in all the difficult times.
You are the ones who had faith in us that we will guide you in the right direction.
And today, we all stand vindicated!
In almost every field, be it politics, sports, bureaucracy, or business, it is observed that when a new entrant comes with an idea to create a positive difference, it faces retaliation from the existing establishments. In this case, the story of IASbaba, has not been any different.
Malicious attempts—Fake comments—Fake Profiles—Undue disrespect—Red flags of misinformation—Purposeful down-votes on every positive comments/compliments
… and those ‘fake fans’ emerged victorious with respective rankings of securing AIR-68 and so on.
Read this by Pulkit Garg , ranked 27 this year.
Pulkit Garg, Rank 490,CSE 2014. IIT Delhi 2014 grad
I was walking through the streets of Old Rajinder Nagar and Mukherjee Nagar last week looking for some test series to practice for this year’s prelims. (yes, yet again pre 😛 )
490th rank then … and today, Rank 27th!
Thankfully, we very well know how to live what we preach—Perseverance!
Some of the famous questions hurled at us—
1. When we launched 60 day program, we were questioned : How can you prepare for prelims in 60 days?
This post answered the question :
2. When we launched TLP program, they said it was a government program.
3. Even our traffic numbers were questioned.
Look at last 2 weeks data, we have far outpaced all our competitors.
4. People asked us do you have any address.Why will you not run away with our money.
That’s why we went to them and did the workshops.
These were just a few— ‘questions on integrity’ of not only on a handful of individuals but on an ‘idea’ that possesses the power to transform many lives. And by whom— those who preach ‘integrity’ themselves. Ironical!
But, when we were discussing this aspect, all we could come up with is a very fundamental question –isn’t this the story of all of our lives?
Vested interests—Pulling down—Negative mind-set w.r.t Competition—Spread of negativity
So, let us pledge to not get perturbed by the external artificial chaos and stay intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles. And always remember— it’s the lack of direction, not lack of time that is the biggest problem.
Without much ado, we would extend heartiest congratulations to those aspirants who with their hard-work and determination have reached the point of beginning a new journey towards building up a better society and also, having initiated a positive vibe all around them, by inspiring fellow aspirants to dream and work harder for those dreams to turn in to a reality.
For all those who could not clear the exam this time, let this be your story of fire, fire-works and passion. 😀 We promise you that you will always find us, by your side, assisting you in reaching the finishing line, in the best way possible.
We are extremely happy to have grown in to a community of like-minded and hard-working people who never fail to help us keep our spirits high. This is just the beginning.
Our aim shall remain put— Revolutionising the complete idea of learning!
All the best
