It was my first attempt. I was the Second member of Board-2 on that day.

(I feel a little nervous in Interview. I have tried my best to recollect virtually everything that happened in the Interview room. After document verification and other official formalities, I was told to wait outside the room no. 02. At around 10:05 am the first candidate came out of the interview room. He gave a disappointing appearance to me and said “Uff Technical ne le li aaj meri”. I crossed my fingers and prayed to the Almighty God. The attender asked me to wait for the bell. After a few minutes, the bell rang. I took a deep breath and opened the door)

One answer regarding UPSC attempt, I am in a doubt whether I should have said NO on UPSC attempt or should have given an indirect answer. Whatever be the result, The Experience was amazing.

ALL THE BEST TO ASPIRANTS.
