When 4 Siblings From The Same Family Cracked UPSC Within 3 Years
The UPSC is widely known as one of the toughest exams in India, with three stages including the Prelims, Mains, and Interview. Despite many candidates successfully passing the first two stages, they are often rejected at the third and final stage. However, the Mishra family from Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh, has an exceptional story to tell. All four siblings in the family have cracked the UPSC, becoming IAS-IPS officers.
The head of the Mishra family, Anil Mishra, is a manager at a Rural Bank. With his wife, he raised their four children in a two-room house, with the desire that all of them would become officers and make him proud. Anil worked hard to provide them with the best education possible, and his children were equally studious. The eldest son, Yogesh, was the first to start preparing for the Civil Services Examination. After he became an IAS officer in 2013, the other siblings followed suit and worked tirelessly to prepare for the same exam.
In 2014, Madhavi Mishra secured All India 62 rank and became an IAS officer, just one year after her brother. Then, in 2015, Lokesh achieved success by securing the 44th rank, having studied Sociology as an optional subject, which was the same subject as his brother Yogesh. The youngest sibling, Kshama Mishra, cracked the exam in the same year and became an IPS officer, securing 172 AIR.
In just three years, all four siblings became IAS-IPS officers, a remarkable achievement that brought great pride to their family and community. Their success serves as a testament to their hard work and dedication, as well as the supportive upbringing they received from their parents.
