last 2 years were very tough for me. I was giving my whole time to a single goal and was completely immersed in the studies. Never visited anything apart from India Gate in this period, that’s too I visited on the first day of my arrival in Delhi. Deleted all accounts on social media to prevent loss of time, stayed away from classmates, friends, and relatives as well in this duration”.

Finally, on 5th April, the result got declared, about those moments he says on his quora account that on that day, his friend downloaded the PDF first but he didn’t see in his phone because he wanted to see the result in his own phone, so I downloaded the PDF and searched for Pradeep, I got four results in that second was mine with AIR-93 with Roll No-0812761.

It was truly a great moment for me, I was feeling top of the world. I shouted angrily at that moment. All my hard work has been paid off. It was like a dream for me, I couldn’t sleep the whole night thinking it can fade away. After that, I must have attended almost a thousand calls and messages from well-wishers and friends.
