AIR -404 CSE 2017
Hello everyone, my name is Saurabh Jassal, by roots I am from Himachal Pradesh and by heart I am from Delhi. After graduating from NSIT, New Delhi, I am working as Software Engineer.
I have secured AIR-404 in CSE-2017. I am very thankful to Nirvana IAS Academy in general and Karam sir in particular. It is a pleasure to be in this phase. I want to highlight some points about this academy, which has been instrumental in this journey and success henceforth.
FIRST, this is not like many mainstream coaching institute, here we are like a family, we have full support as regard any query, problem, be it related to preparation, career or personal.
SECOND, teaching methodology is unique; here focus is on discussion, debates, open houses etc. Here mentors talk to you and not at you, as batch size is kept within bound so that student-teacher relationship is not hampered. This is important in opening the floodgates of new thought process, mind set, outlook, so that one can analyze and have a balanced, logical and coherent view regarding various issues so discussed.
THIRD, as we know this preparation is ‘time’ as well ‘energy’ consuming, so it is advisable and logical to use these two things wisely. In this context, I want to draw a parallel, UPSC preparation is like labyrinth (Bhool Bhulayia) and we are like ones who have to cross it. Mentors are like compass or GPS who guide us. Since I had paucity of time due to job, these two things were efficiently used with the help of such metaphorical compass.
FOURTH, not sure whether one will witness success or not, one thing is sure i.e. one’s personality will be evolved and will be a better human being, which will definitely be helpful in various facets of life.
Lastly, I want to share two quotes, which are close to me:
“Hope is a good thing, may be the best thing, and no good thing ever dies”. – Shawshank Redemption.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue is what matters”. – Winston Churchill.
Thank you and Good Luck!!
