UPSC topper Ira Sehgal: If you are determined to do something in life, can nothing be possible? Today we are going to tell you the story of a woman IAS who has done many things to fulfill her dream. the challenges faced firmly. Ira surprised everyone by securing the top rank in the UPSC exam in 2014. She is the first woman candidate to do so. Suffering from a particular disease since childhood, Ira got to hear so many taunts throughout the world, but Ira did not give up. Instead of looking at his potential from someone else’s point of view, he trusted himself and did something that big people could not do.
what’s wrong with ira
Ira has a disease called scoliosis since childhood. This causes problems in the spinal cord and deteriorates the body structure. For this reason, Ira’s height also did not increase. But he never let this disease come in the way of his success. Ira was born in Meerut and did her early education. When Ira was born, she was just like a normal child, but as she grew older, this disease started appearing. His parents got him treated a lot but to no avail.
This is how I got inspired to become an IAS
Once in Ira’s childhood, curfew was imposed in his city and all the schools etc. were closed. Then he asked why the schools are closed, then he got the answer that it is the orders of the DM. Ira was surprised to hear that the entire city could be shut down on someone’s orders. That’s why she thought that she too would grow up to become DM. Seeing the problems faced by PH candidates with increasing age, his decision became more determined.
Totally selected four times
Ira gave the UPSC exam a total of four times. He was selected four times in which he got IRS thrice. In the fourth time, Ira not only passed the UPSC exam but also got All India Rank One. With this, Ira became the country’s first differently abled candidate who topped the UPSC exam.
Ira advises other candidates that you yourself know your capabilities, never give this opportunity to someone else to tell you your limits. Have dreams and fulfill them but also remember that UPSC is not everything. Life is ahead and behind it as well.
