In a series of social media posts, he wrote, “Dear 2022, When you came I looked at you like a normal year because for every UPSC aspirant his new year starts after selection. So I never much expected from you but I was wrong. I still remember the 30th May when I saw my name in the holy UPSC pdf & I thought how lucky I am.”
He further wrote, “The person who never saw his name even in school board was lucky among millions of aspirants. You changed my life and your blessings are still with me. On 20th August I got engaged to the most beautiful woman that I have imagined. The place which never came into my dreams there I was standing and felt the difference when you cross the bridge, that is LBSNAA. Thank you 2022 for giving me the best friends for a lifetime and millions of memories at LBSNAA.”
