A new journey









Finally, after having cleared the civil services exam 2009 with all India rank 84, I have got my service allocation today. I have got into the Indian Police Service, which was my first choice. I decided to enter the civil services in 2005 after an incident involving my mother. A gang of robbers had broken into my house and looted everything after assaulting my mother. Although they were caught by the police and were punished in the court, I felt the police could have been much more efficient. I wanted to do more than just being cynical about our system and resigned my lucrative job to prepare for the civil services. I followed the Mahatma's saying "Be the change you want to see in this world".
In retrospect, I feel happy that my hardwork has paid off. However, this is just the beginning. There is no end to what an IPS officer, or for that matter any civil servant, can do to bring in a positive change to this society.
I hope this journey would be a fulfilling experience for me and for the people I serve.

Hey Vikraman,

I am so proud of you. Congrats!!!

And keep following the same path. Even though I rant about the same things, I never had the guts to go down the path. Glad to see a determined youngster like you to take this path. Hope you become successful and clean up the mess our system has engraved in itself. And more so I hope you don't get sucked into the very bad system that you are trying to clean up.

ALL THE BEST!!!!

Thanks to each one of you. I will do my best. But for now, I should learn everything that is taught to me. I hope in the next two years, I get groomed into a good police officer.

Vikram, you may know me from ECE department SRM 2005 pass out batch. I was following your status messages at orkut and stumbled on this blog post. I must say I am inspired. You are an example to 'how much someone can control his/her destiny, if one decides to'. Good luck with your endeavours and god bless you and your family.

Hi Vikram,
This is Rajesh - alumni 2001 batch. Your class mate too. I got the update from Saravana Iyyappan regarding your success and destiny. I wish u all the best. Be practical and refrain from blasphemous political factors. Wish u reach the level of SP on 2016 at your age of 33 and climb constantly to the level of ADGP on 2037 at your age of 54. Take care. Perform and progress.
