Madhopatti might be a small village in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur district but it is making a significant contribution to the future of our country. The hamlet, which has around 75 households, has given India 47 IAS officers.

How’s that for Incredible India?
According to news reports, the village’s first IAS officer was Mustafa Hussain, father of the poet Wamiq Jaunpuri, who cracked the Union Public Services Commission exam in 1914 and joined the PCS. Hussain was followed by IAS Indu Prakash who also secured the second rank in the civil services exam.

There has been no looking back for the village since. While many opted for a career in civil services, some youngsters from the village have also found successful careers with the Indian Space Research Organisation, the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and the World Bank.

Madhopatti village recently broke a record after four siblings from the hamlet cracked the exam and got selected for the IAS. One of them also served as the Chief Secretary of Bihar.

“You will find students studying in intermediate, going through guide books for IAS and PCS examinations. They start young and also try to brush up on their English since the medium of education in most schools here is still Hindi,” one teacher from the village said in an interview.

Madhopatti is only one of India’s many talented hamlets. Ghazipur’s Ghahmar village for example, is known as the Army village. Why? Because every household has at least one member in the Army.
