Strong Determination and Hardwork Enlightens your way to Success – Govind Jaiswal (IAS Topper)

No need to be surprised on the success of Govind Jaiswal, IAS [Indian Administrative Service] officer, it is the result of his true struggle, hard work and strong determination towards his dream. Becoming an IAS officer was not only his childhood dream but its was his father’s dream also.

When Govind was of 22 years he cleared the civil services exam in first attempt and got 48th position among 474 candidates in 2006. Now Govind Jaiswal is an IAS officer and working as an assistant commissioner in Nagaland.

His father, Narayan Jaiswal rickshaw puller in Varanasi, his mother was a home- maker, he has three sister and one brother in his family. He shares a small room with his family, where concentrating on studies is impossible. Power cut daily for 12-14 hours was common and he had to listen taunts for his poverty as well. But he never lost hope and promised himself to achieve his goal whatsoever the condition may be. Whatever his father earned in a month, half of it would go for children school fees.

His father had a small land, on which Govind’s brother worked but as it never yielded much so his father sold the land out to send his son Govind Jaiswal to Delhi where he found environment for the preparation of IAS and made his dream true. When Govind Jaiswal was busy in his studies in Delhi, his father worked hard by pulling rickshaw the whole day so that he can send Govind some amount every month. His father’s feet are wounded badly and have not completely healed till today which restricted his mobility. To help his father Govind Jaiswal started taking tutions so that he won’t be a burden on his father.

Narayan Jaiswal only wanted his son’s dream come true and he didn’t sleep for 10 days earlier than the IAS result was declared. As Govind Jaiswal got the news of clearing the civil service exam, all of sudden tears came out of eyes as he had achieved what he and his father dreamt about. As his family got the news that Govind cleared the exam in first attempt they all started crying in happiness.

Govind Jaiswal said that he had no option other then to opt for civil services as for running successful business he didn’t had enough money and MNC jobs are not meant for people like him. So the only thing he can do was to study hard and believe in God and himself to achieve his aim in life.

Govind Jaiswal got many proposals of marriage and many of them offered a dowry up to Rs. 4 Crore, but he refused them and said right now he has to look after his father and job.

Govind Jaiswal wanted a good medical treatment of his father’s wound with his first salary, so that they can heal fast. Narayan Jaiswal, his father is the role model for him to fight any situation in life. His Inspirational Hero is President Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam for developing India and making it free from social crimes.
