People in Jaipurs Shyampura village have a reason to rejoice these days. After all, it’s not everyday that somebody from the village cracks the UPSC ? the toughest exam in the country. The person who gave them a reason to enjoy is 29-year-old Manoj Kumar Rawat, who secured the 824th rank when the All India Civil Services Examinations 2017 results were announced recently. Rawat, who’s a candidate from the Scheduled Castes (SC) category will most likely be an IPS officer soon, something, which he always aspired for.

After completing his BA from Rajasthan in 2007, Rawat joined the Rajasthan Police force as a constable. However, his dream was to always become an IPS officer. As fascinating as it may sound, but Rawat derived the inspiration of becoming an IPS officer after he watched Sunny Deols movie Indian.

While still working as a constable, he completed his MA in political science in 2012. In 2013, he left the police job and became a lower divisional clerk at a court. Then, in 2014, he left that government job and started preparing for UPSC. Speaking as to how people ridiculed him for leaving the government job, Rawat told Hindustan Times, People asked me, have you gone mad People long for a government job and you are leaving one. Do you think it’s that easy to become an IAS??

Unaffected by what people thought and perceived, Rawat took coaching from Delhi during 2015-16 for the exam. He cleared the exam in the fifth attempt. He cleared prelims thrice and the mains once.

Speaking about his journey from a constable to an IPS officer, Rawat told The Indian Express, Working as a constable has helped me to understand how the legal system functions in our country. Even administrative issues such as sanctioning of leaves and people friendly methods of policing matter a lot when it comes to the smooth functioning of law and order system. It’s likely that I will be given IPS cadre and then I would try to use all those lessons.

However, he threw these charges under the bus and said, I was looking for materials for a question I wanted to ask the government in question hour.
?When I was looking for question material, I deleted too many messages as my phone storage was full. What the media has shown or seen, I don’t know. I would never do such things or see such things, he added.
