Selected in UPSC interview, there was no money to go to Delhi, then friends
Today tribals not only study, dress well and send their children to schools, but also appear in civil services exam to clear it and become IAS officers. No matter how backward different tribes were at the time of independence, today they are educated and participate in national development. Here is the success story of the first tribal woman from Kerala, Sreedhanya Suresh, who fulfilled her dream of clearing the UPSC exam.
Sreedhanya Suresh’s father was a daily wage labourer. His family lived in Pojuthana, a small village in Wayanad. It is one of the most backward areas of Kerala. Sreedhanya did not have basic facilities since childhood due to financial constraints of her family. He had three siblings. Sreedhanya and his family used to sell bows and arrows in the local market to support themselves.
Although Sreedhanya’s father earned less money, he never stopped his daughter from studying. In fact, he ensured that all his children get basic education in the village and become literate. Sreedhanya studied without any interruption in her education. He completed his 10th and 12th studies from Wayanad itself. Later, he did his graduation in Zoology from St. Joseph’s College in Kozhikode, Calicut.
Know- How was the UPSC interview for the last attempted candidates, these questions were asked
He applied for post-graduation in Applied Zoology from the University of Calicut and passed it with good marks. After college, he became interested in UPSC Civil Services Examination. Although he needed time to prepare for UPSC, he needed a job at that time, so he started working as a clerk in the Scheduled Castes and Tribes Development Department, Government of Kerala. She also worked as the Warden of the Tribal Hostel for Women in Wayanad.
Such was the struggle of Sreedhanya Suresh
Sreedhanya met IAS officer Sriram Rao during her job, who inspired her to join the civil service. She was inspired by his way of life at that time, after which he took the UPSC CSE exam seriously.
Sreedhanya took admission in coaching classes offered by the Scheduled Tribes Department. She did not succeed in her first two attempts but did not give up hope. In the year 2018, he cracked the UPSC Civil Services Exam Prelims and Mains. However, even after passing the exam, his troubles did not end there.
There was no money to appear in the UPSC interview.
Sreedhanya had good friends in life. At the time of UPSC interview, his family could not manage to book any train ticket for him to fly to Delhi. However, his friends deposited Rs 40,000 for him and sent him to stay in Delhi and appear for IAS interview.
Friends’ prayers and Sreedhanya’s hard work paid off and she cleared the UPSC CSE interview. She secured 410 rank that year and became the first tribal woman from Kerala to clear the UPSC Civil Services Examination. He is happy to take over the charge of Kozhikode District Collector Sriram Sambasiva. “It is a huge responsibility to take charge during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will give me an opportunity to learn and understand the administrative sector more deeply,” he told a news agency.
