Insecurities "I am blessed in that sense as I had a good school education and I did engineering from IIT Kanpur, hence probably I am not the best candidate to advice on these matters. However, I have some friends who have done exceedingly well without any star-studded background e.g. Saurabh Sinha (Rank 123 in CSE 2015). Added advantage of self-confidence that comes with such good background can definitely be compensated with high levels of motivation, hard work and continuous application of mind"
Wisdonm . Motivation is the primary key to success Working hard . Devicing smart ways Minimizing efforts Consistency
Friends & Family "My elder brother Mayank Tripathi has been the "Iron Pillar" of my preparation. Parents were the source of faith. My friends Shailja Umrao and Nitish Karnatak were constantly supporting me. Sanskrit preparation was possible only through heavy contribution and valuable inputs from Gopal, Saurabh Sinha, Vinay Benjwal and Priyanka Ahuja. I will always be grateful to them"
