Son of a poor tea seller set to become IAS officer after ranking 82 in UPSC

Deshaladan Charan the son of a tea seller is all set to become an IAS officer after he ranked a very impressive 82 in the recently announced UPSC results. Deshaladan hails from Sumalai village near Rajasthan’s city of Jaisalmer. His father a humble tea seller named Kushaldan Charan, runs a tea stall in Jaisalmer’s Chungi Naka square, and has had to go through various hardships in life.

Ever since his childhood, Deshaladan was considered a meritorious student and his father as a result left no stones unturned to support him at every step. When he was finding it difficult to fund his son’s education, Kushaldan took out a loan to make sure the studies didn’t stop.

Apart from having a humble upbringing, which further adds credence to Deshaladan’s ability, is the lack of good higher education facilities near Jaisalmer, despite which he managed such a good result.

This result by Deshaladan hasn’t just provided immense pride to his family members, it has also sent ripples of joy throughout his village.

Deshaladan’s story isn’t the only such success saga which has graced the UPSC examination.

It was reported in April last year that, Nirish Rajput the son of a tailor master, had cracked the IAS post by securing a 370 rank in UPSC. The 31 year old Nirish too battled poverty and used to live in a modest 300 square feet house in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhind district. Earlier he used to work odd jobs to make ends meet.

In another inspiring story, it was reported how Govind Jaiswal a son of a rickshaw puller had bagged a 48 in his very first attempt back in 2006. In order to keep his son’s dream alive, the father had sold his only plot of land to send his kid to Delhi for studies. Come 2016, Govind was the District Magistrate of East Delhi area.

The list of inspiring stories also extends to Ummul Kher who was disowned by her parents for wishing to study beyond the 8th standard. Despite suffering from a fragile bone disorder, she bagged an all India rank of 420.
