S. Sushree IPS, a girl from Kerala – the first youngest person who passed the IPS in India
We all know that passing the UPSC Civil Services examination is not an easy task. When hard work meets proper guidance from experts and support from parents everything is possible. You can find many stories of grit that reinforce one’s belief in the inevitability of success in the UPSC Civil Services Exam. This is such an inspiring success story of Sushree, who qualified the UPSC exam in her first attempt and secured 151st rank and that also only through self-learning.
Some people think only candidates who can afford to spend a lot of money on specialised coaching can pass the prestigious UPSC examination. And some people think a particular group or people with a good status only can achieve success in UPSC exams. But you can find many inspiring stories of candidates who strive hard with dedication and determination and strike gold at the UPSC altar.
How this young girl from Kerala got the name SUSHREE?
Her parents shared the first letters from their name to give the name SUSHREE to their loving daughter. SU from her father’s name SUNIL and SHREE from mother’s name SHREEKALA joined and thus the name SU+SHREEV = SUSHREE.
His father Sunil not only shared his name but also sacrificed a lot for her daughter. At 44, he took VRS only to fulfil the dream of her daughter. He could have been in service for many more years and could climb many steps of promotion. But the loving father ignored everything and gave full support and help to his daughter for achieving the success in her goal.
