AIR-215, CSE-2020

CSE preparation, as we all know, is a roller coaster ride right from the moment we venture into it – full of emotions, surprises and drama.

I was fortunate to arrive at Nirvana IAS Academy at the beginning of my preparation, and the last 3 years have been pure gems. Here I found not just amazing teachers, but also very jovial and competitive batchmates.

I will begin by thanking Karam Sir, who is an extraordinary teacher and a true guide. Under his watch, I honed and worked on my weaknesses and strengths. His pedagogic style of teaching through informative stories remains a highlight of my classroom experience.

Wadhwa Sir’s teachings and critique really helped me grow as a person. He always stood by me in tough times, pushed me to think differently and devoted countless hours just so that all his students could go home satisfied from all doubts. His contribution in this journey has been of a true Alchemist.

Ruby Ma’am ever so strict yet very gentle and humble helped us remain stuck to our chosen path. I am especially thankful to her for being a strong pillar in our lives.

And finally, my peers who became friends for life in no time. From ‘Chaaye -side discussion to long, meaningful debates, all of us were getting groomed and growing in the most enjoyable manner.

I take pride to call myself a part of this amazing Nirvana family. As we often say, it was here that I truly found my friends, philosophers and guides.
