28-year-old Divya Shakti, who finished 79th in the exams of the Civil Service Union Commission (UPSC), said Tuesday that human possibilities are inexhaustible and, like every other area of life, has time for improvement left in the administration.
“It’s no win to say that talent pools have served the nation and brought about fundamental changes in our country. Nevertheless, I believe that time offers enormous opportunities for improvement. The technological innovations will help future administrators make a name for themselves, ”said Divya Shakti, who passed the exam in the second attempt.

When asked whether she was confident of securing the top 100 finalist, she was somewhat open. “This is the beauty of UPSC. Even the number one doesn’t know where he or she is. I couldn’t clarify my preliminary round on my first try, ”she clarified.
Divya was born into a medical family and grew up there. After enrolling, she decided on PCM (physics, chemistry, mathematics). “All of our siblings are free to do what we wanted to study, and all three of us are now in other professions than medicine,” said Divya Shakti, who did her Masters in Economics in 2016.
Divya’s parents are on cloud nine today. “Your success means a lot and is also full of learning experiences. As a guardian, I believe that we should never enforce our decisions. Every sincere student is his best judge, and the guardian should work together and illuminate the dream that he has. Whatever decisions she made, she’s up to her, ”said Dhirendra Kumar Singh, Divya’s father, ex-superintendent of the State Medical University Hospital (GMCH), Bettiah.
