Kashmira studied for the top-level examinations for years without using social media, adhering to a schedule of 50 minutes of study time and 10 minutes of downtime. For the past 1.5 years, she has had to scale back some of her dental practise in order to devote enough time to her UPSC studies.

Even after twice failing, I persisted in trying harder and dreaming.
Kashmira had been checking the UPSC result online all morning. She lives with her parents and younger brother. By the afternoon, she made the choice to pause, treat herself to a biryani, and unwind. “I made the decision to stop thinking and simply wait. I placed an order for biryani because I was craving it. Just a few spoonfuls had been consumed when my mentor called to congratulate me. When I saw my state’s top ranking in the results, I almost fainted, according to Kashmira, whose overall UPSC rating was 25.

Kashmira studied for the top-level examinations for years without using social media, adhering to a schedule of 50 minutes of study time and 10 minutes of downtime. For the past 1.5 years, she has had to scale back some of her dental practise in order to devote enough time to her UPSC studies.”My mother used to show me newspaper articles of great people like Kiran Bedi winning UPSC and other top-level exams when I was a kid,” the woman said. I decided to apply for the UPSC because of that. I initially earned a degree in dental surgery and began preparing for the UPSC while practising dentistry in Thane.
In comparison to her prior tries, Kashmira stated she was more at ease after her third attempt at the exam because she had optimism. I didn’t have any expectations for the outcome, she admitted. But there was clearly optimism. When the results were revealed, I was in shock.Kashmira’s family began referring to her at home as IAS Kashmira Sankhe as a result of her choice to sit for the UPSC exams. According to Kashmira’s mother Pratima Sankhe, “We used to call her that and she used to smile.” “Even if it was only motivational, we knew she would pass the exam eventually. We supported her as a family over the extended hours of preparation.
We lifted her spirits whenever she felt down following a long period of study. She visualised things for herself as I had always advised her to.While her younger brother is pursuing an engineering degree, Kashmira’s mother, father, and older sister are all doctors. Kishor Sankhe remarked, “I was in my office when I learned of her first rank. I simply shouted in joy that my daughter had finally been appointed an IAS officer. What more could a father possibly desire in life?
Kashmira was a dentist, a career founded on public service, but she desired to do more through the civil services. Her preparation strategy for the UPSC has been to “read, repeat, rewrite, and revise.” She used to write her own notes because she likes to write. There is a wide variety of study materials on the market, so it can be difficult to select one. “I’d advise you to make your own notes and to keep looking. It’s crucial to improve the fundamentals and effectively present them in tests.Kashmira claims that since she is familiar with the people and culture of Maharashtra, she would like to be sent there. “However, I am open to anything when it comes to the civil services, as it will help me learn,” she said in her closing statement.
