For many in India, securing a government job is a dream, and cracking the Civil Services Exam (CSE) is the ultimate gateway. But the path is arduous, demands immense dedication, and often leaves aspirants feeling lost. This is where IPS Hasmukh Patel steps in, offering inspiration and practical guidance through his YouTube channel.

DRIVING FORCE BEHIND YOUTUBE 

Mr. Patel isn’t just a law enforcement official; he’s a mentor who understands the aspirants’ struggles firsthand. “Having been through the hardships myself, I don’t want other aspirants, especially those lacking proper resources, to go through the same,” he shared with Indian Masterminds. Driven by this empathy, his YouTube channel has become a beacon for countless students navigating the competitive exam landscape.

His channel boasts over 93,000 subscribers, with each video garnering thousands of views. The secret to his success? Authenticity. Mr. Patel shares strategies and the emotional rollercoaster of being an aspirant. “They feel someone is guiding them, someone who understands what they’re going through—students who might not have that guidance back home,” he explains.

The driving force behind his channel is the desire to bridge the resource gap. “The struggle is common for every student who can’t afford coaching or proper materials,” he says. “Now that I am in a position to help, I share my experiences, focusing on building confidence and navigating the emotional ups and downs during exam season.”

EXAM PREPARATION STRATEGIES

Mr. Patel’s journey serves as a powerful example of determination. He debunks the myth that cracking CSE requires years of preparation. “I started by strengthening my general knowledge, a perceived weakness among Gujaratis,” he recalls. He devoured NCERT books for months but soon realized the need for a more exam-oriented approach. With just 20 days to go for the prelims, he turned to Tata McGraw Hill guides and completed his preparation. This experience shattered the notion that CSE is an insurmountable challenge.

His unique method involved translating English study materials into Gujarati for better retention. Interestingly, he skipped studying for the main exams 25 days before the test. “I thought I wouldn’t clear it with such limited preparation,” he admits. However, to his surprise, he scored a remarkable 825 marks.

Mr. Patel’s approach extends beyond just exam techniques. He emphasizes the importance of genuine motivation. “Back in my day, mock interviews focused on the cliche answer of ‘serving the country,'” he says. “But for me, CSE was truly about serving the people. Why lie about my intentions?” This honesty resonates with his viewers, reminding them of the service-oriented purpose behind the exam.

A ONE-MAN SHOW

Despite the channel’s success, Mr. Patel operates with a shoestring team. “A colleague from my office helps me shoot videos whenever possible, usually on weekends,” he explains. “They find purpose in contributing to something positive, and thankfully, the editing is minimal—we shoot in one take!”

THE CORE VALUE OF A TRUE CIVIL SERVANT 

His message to aspiring civil servants is clear: “Don’t chase money through CSE. There are better options if that’s your primary goal. Understand that money pales in comparison to the satisfaction of serving the people. There’s dignity and security in a government job, but more importantly, it’s an opportunity to make a real difference.”

IPS officer Hasmukh Patel’s story is an inspiration to countless aspirants. His YouTube channel is more than just a platform; it’s a guiding light, an unwavering desire to empower others through knowledge and experience.
