The year was 1971 and the month of September had just commenced. I had just turned 20.
I was excited at the prospect of completing my graduation and was looking forward to pursue my post-graduation.

I was very keen to take a crack at the Civil Services competition. Many of my family members had joined the Defense Services – but no one had joined the IAS / IPS cadre.
