BUREAUCRACY

Kudos to newest IAS officer onboard -Aditya Srivastava (AIR-1)

Aditya Srivastava is not raving with excitement, but you can easily identify the emotional arousal in his voice as he shares his splendid victory. After all, he has topped the toughest and most prestigious exams in India– the Civil Services Examination-2023 – conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), the results of which were declared on April 16, 2024. And as you converse with him, you do feel the contagious excitement in the form of goose bumps – an involuntary action of your tiny muscles. In this off-beat heart-to-heart conversation, the 27-year-old says that it is unlikely that he would be smitten by the “IAS-snob attitude” and adds that it is alright to dip while preparing for the examination, but it is more important to bounce back as soon as possible. Check out the UPSC-2023 All India Rank -1 holder, Aditya Srivastava’s exclusive interview with Whispers In The Corridors (WITC) from the National Police Academy in Hyderabad where he is undergoing IPS training in Hyderabad (AIR 236). For the full interview read the May 2024 issue.
