About Me

I am Anudeep Durishetty, IAS officer of 2018 batch and All India Rank 1 in the UPSC Civil Services Examination 2017. I secured this rank in my 5th attempt. Over the course of my long tryst with UPSC, I had learnt a lot from my mistakes and I consciously worked to rectify them. I intend this blog to be a repository of my experience so that you don’t repeat the same errors. You’ll find posts on my journey so far, preparation strategy for GS, essay, optional, answer writing and other peripheral aspects relevant to Civils preparation. Aspirants may post their queries in the comments section.

Apart from these, I also plan to write about topics of general interest that fascinate me. I am a native of Telangana and my hobbies are football, reading and meditation. I love Arsenal, Lionel Messi and Roger Federer.
