MEGHANA.K.T Rank 465, UPSC CSE 2019


When God has gifted us with everything, we still complain of our frivolous shortcomings. It can be lack of time, lack of sleep, not able to meet friends, lack of motivation .. it’s endless..!!

And here is a story that can inspire thousands and millions of students.

Meghana’s grit and determination to succeed helped her overcome her visual-limitation and make it into the final list. There are more probable chances that she can get into Indian Administrative Service (IAS).

From the entire team of IASbaba we would like to congratulate MEGHANA K.T.

Kudos and Salute to her unwavering faith, consistent efforts, determination and hard work which has helped her to become an IAS.


From Meghana K.T- 

“It could be a dark, dusky and a dull day, but you can always choose to light up your soul and emulate energy to the world”

I am Meghana.K.T, I have secured AIR 465 in UPSC CSE-2019. I do not have clarity in what I see, I do have crafted clarity in what I foresee. A vision within keeps me going breaking all the barriers and crossing over all the impediments.

I did not want to settle for anything less, and what kept chanting in my mind was only civil services.

In this journey of conspicuous meditation, I have received incredibly great support from many places and from many wonderful people. My heartfelt gratitude to everyone.

To make special mention of IAS BABA, it was inevitably part of my preparation.

I gained new wisdom and direction in understanding Kannada literature under the guidance of Indhushree Mam. Her answer papers were great source of reference and helped to mould my answers as per the demand of the questions. This enabled me to perform well in my optionals. I take this writing to genially thank Mam for such aan affable support…:)

IASbaba’s initiatives like TLP (Mains Answer Writing), TRP (Interview Preparation) help in expanding aspirants horizons of understanding a particular topic and to  nurture analytical approach to the same.

The free content available on the website is of best quality and crisp summary makes it easy for the dedicated aspirants.  It was very helpful in my preparation.

Adding to that, the mock interview sessions were very cordial and the pannel helped me in boosting my confidence and grooming my presentation skills.

I would also like to thank Yeshwanth Sir, Mohan Sir who were very encouraging and supportive.

On the whole I would like to thank the Institute from bottom of my heart.

For all the aspirants who are targeting the upcoming examination, If I can do it with a so called visual limitation, you all can definitely do it.

Design your strategy, stick on to it, and be unflinching to any enticing distractions.

I followed 5 point strategy i.e.

1. Basic books(NCERTS).
2. Core books (multiple revision of few books only).
3. Syllabus and previous year question papers(Keep falling back on these 2).
4. Test series (It’s not what you read, but its what you write on the paper that will get you in the final list).
5. Current affairs  (the ability to connect it with the conventional topics).

Its not how widely you read throughout the year but what is important is what you recollect on the day of exam.

Remember Revision is the only key for success“.




Thank You
