Despite all odds, 21-year-old Ansar Ahmad Shaikh, son of auto-rickshaw driver, has been able to crack the prestigious UPSC examinations in his first attempt. He is also the youngest candidate to crack the civil services.

Ansar managed to secure an all India ranking of 361.  After the results were declared on Tuesday spates of well wishers have been calling and visiting Ansar.

Ansar hails from a family that lives in a rented home at Shelgaon in Jalna — a place in the drought-hit region of Marathwada, Maharashtra. His father is an auto-rickshaw driver, while his mother works in fields. From childhood he has witnessed his alcoholic father abusing his mother.

Ansar, who will turn 22 on June 1, went to Shelgaon Zilla Parishad School and graduated in Political Science from Pune’s Fergusson College. After coming to Pune to join College, he had to change his surname to a Hindu surname “Shubham” to get accommodation and food without hassles. In 2015, he passed his graduation and in the same year appeared for UPSC and opted for Political Science.

With constant support from his mother and brother, every day he used devote 13 hours for studies and finally cracked the UPSC in first try.

Not only a minority, but Ansar also belonged to the OBC category.


The Logical Indian congratulates Ansar for his feat. We wish him all the best for his future and hope he will be able to contribute to make India better.
