I'm proud of Keshvendra & Ravikant. It is their hardwork which has paid them. I'm motivated by these two railway booking clerks-turned-IAS officers. They proved that it was the hard work & great determination which could make one reach to the top where he wants to go. Above all, these two guys have supplemented confidence among distance learners who apprehensive about job opportunity.
