Today is September 1, 2015. Tomorrow is the deadline for putting up the final curriculum vitae (CV) at my college, IIT Delhi, for placements starting this season from December 1. I still have not created a CV for myself due to the dilemma which I have been going through for quite some time now. Should I go for placements and join the industry at some handsome salary or pursue my dream, IAS? So, should I play safe or take a huge risk which could cost me a couple of years of my life?
But, now I think, I have decided. Guess what? I am going for Civil Services preparation! My prelims is in August next year and my preparation level is ZERO. But, at least, I have done some basic research on what books and materials I should follow. I have also decided my mains optional subject to be Mathematics. I have a very busy semester here at IIT Delhi. But I don’t have time anymore and I must start my UPSC preparation NOW! I will try to give a couple of hours daily initially to the dream of my life. Come on, let’s do it. Phooooh…. Let’s start ab initio.
