KNOW HOW A VISUALLY IMPAIRED CRACKED THE UPSC EXAM

Nothing is impossible if you have the will to do it. This line suits well with this 30 years old visually impaired lady Pranjal Patil from Ulhas nagar in suburban Mumbai district. She lost her eye sight at the age of six but she didn't lost any hopes of becoming an IAS (Indian administrative services) officer. She cleared UPSC (Union Public Service Comission) exam in very first attempt. Soon after this she was offered a job in Indian railways accounts department but later railways department refused to appoint her as of her 100% blindness. I was disappointed but i didn't gave up i went with second attempt to improve my rankings and i did it. said: Pranjal Patil She cracked the UPSC exams in second attempt too and this time with a better rank. She scored 124th in all of India. She joined as Assistant Director at Ernakulam district in Kerela. All the eyes are on me says Pranjal Patil. She added that one should not take his/her disabilities as an obstacle. She said that the doors of opportunities should be open for all and not restricted by disabilities. She's an political science graduate and did her masters in international relations from Jawahar Lal Nehru university followed by M.phil and PHD. She lost her eye sight after her eyes got exposed to sunlight. Japanese philosopher Daisaki Ikeda and late astrologer Stephen Hawking are her role models. Its a proud moment for her parents as they stood right by her side in all the good and bad days of her life. Currently  she'll be working as assistant collector as she has to go through the training to understand the working of various departments.
