Many dream to clear the IAS exam and there are some who break records along with clearing the exam. In this article, we are going to talk about S Susree, Youngest IAS officer in Kerala who cleared the exam at the age of 23 and currently serving the country as an IPS officer.
Civil Services exams are considered one of the toughest exams in India to take. There are three parts of the exam which makes it even tougher. But, there are some UPSC aspirants who just not clear the exams but also set a higher benchmark for the next generation.
This story is of S Susree, a daughter of retired CRPF personnel who hung his boot to support his daughter in the UPSC preparation. His name is Sunil Kumar and he was part of the security team protecting then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
S Susree belongs to the Kollam district in Kerala.
A Life-Changing Moment of Youngest IAS officer of Kerala
S Susree was amongst the lucky ones who got a chance to present a bouquet to our ex-Prime Minister Singh and his wife Gurcharan Kaur.
When PM Singh asked about her dreams then she naively replied that she aspires to become a Civil Servant.
Further, Mr. Singh blessed her and knew that his blessing would motivate her so much that she would clear this mother of all exams in her first attempt.
A great example of good parenting
Susree is the right example of hard work and discipline. Moreover, she didn’t even take any coaching to clear the exam. Her father supported her during the preparation and he even left his job for her dream. He was part of the Special Protection Group who was then responsible for protecting Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
She was also guided by N Ramachandran (Former DGP of Meghalaya and Assam). But her real motivation was her meeting with Prime Minister Mr. Manhoman Singh which shaped her life of becoming a civil servant.
