Dr Birendra Prasad Yadav, IAS has become the youngest candidate to crack the UPSC Civil Services exam at the age of 26 with an all India rank of 64 in his very 3rd attempt in 2004. Dr Birendra Prasad Yadav, IAS, the son of Government employee, hails from a marginalised family from the jamui from Bihar.
Despite his vulnerable economic conditions, Birendra Prasad Yadav excelled in studies from the very start and landed in the Bihar Veterinary College, Patna college course of veterinary science. Driven by a strong will, he used to work 12 hours a day straight for three consecutive years while preparing for his UPSC exam.
He has defied all odds, including casteism discrimination, to crack the most prestigious competitive UPSC examination of India. Coming from a poor conservative backward family, his achievement is really worth applauding. He has become a source of inspiration for many poor aspirants trying hard to make a mark in this world of cut-throat competition.
According to this budding civil servant, coming from a backward underdeveloped region and belonging to a backward community has acted more as an insight for him to study the horizontal differences that exist in the society. Moreover, his first-hand tryst with social ostracisation has also provided him with vivid solutions to such deep-rooted problems as an administrator.
