Nilesh Gaikwad has a come a long way, just like his UPSC preparation.
He started in the year 2015 and fulfilled his dream in 2020. This however does not mean he is not academically inclined. Nilesh cleared the tough IIT-JEE examinations in his first attempt and graduated from IIT Bombay. After working for a year at a private firm, Nilesh quit to follow his UPSC-CSE dream. Why did he want to prepare for UPSC-CSE just when he had achieved the ‘middle-class’ settled life?
As a college student, Nilesh was never interested in UPSC-CSE. However, as an employee in an IT firm, Nilesh looked upto his boss. He wondered what motivated his boss to wake up everyday and navigate through the rigors of work. He understood that his boss had found the purpose of his life in his job.
That’s when Nilesh realized he was unable to fulfill his purpose or express his passion in a private job. “Owning a car, buying fancy gadgets and earning in lakhs — this did not drive me. Unfortunately, a private job just gives you that and nothing more.”, Nilesh said. Hailing from a small town, Nilesh wanted to go back to roots and do something for many such small towns in India. After a quick research, the idea of UPSC-CSE struck him.
He left his fulltime job to prepare for UPSC-CSE and gave nearly 4 attempts. In his 3rd attempt, he got selected for Indian Defence Accounts Service post. While undergoing training, Nilesh prepared once again under the guidance of Civilsdaily mentor Pravin Sir and finally became an IPS Officer.
