NOA salutes – 3

What is it about the recent UPSC exams that they are throwing up one inspirational story after the other?
Here’s one closer to home:
Rashmi Zagde, daughter of a Class IV employee in the Pune Municipal Corporation and a housewife, has cleared the UPSC exams – in her fifth attempt. A humble family background, the birth of a child and financial constraints didn’t deter her from attempting the prestigious exams.

Credit also goes to her husband Siddharth Zagde, who encouraged her at every step of the way and even sold his five acre farm and flat to fund her exam preparations.
Full story here in the Mumbai Mirror.
