All about passion to serve your country

Another story about a passionate educated topper who is more focused on serving his country.

Yesterday results of 2008 Civil Services examinations have been announced. Adapa Karthik from Khammam, Andhra Pradesh has topped the list. Well, every year we have someone topping the list. What’s so special about Karthik?

He opted for Civil Services “to contribute for development at the grassroots level“. So he chose IPS and is currently undergoing training. Also, unlike most, he did not opt for his home cadre. According to his mentor, he is a “highly spirited service-oriented boy committed to serving the people”. He looks at Civil Services less as a career option, more as a real service.

Did you know that he had won a scholarship to Harvard Medical School, but the “socially committed” youth decided to stay back in India and join the civil services.

This is one of the best I have heard so far. He is an inspiration to so many. His parents must be so proud of him.
