After my UPSC results, someone came up to me and asked: “Now that you’ve succeeded after a long journey, you must have learnt a lot of lessons along the way. If you were to meet your younger self who is starting his preparation just now, what advice would you give him?”
I wrote this speech trying to answer that question. I titled it Letter to My Younger Self and delivered the talk recently to a group of bright, enthusiastic aspirants at the Ravindra Bharati Auditorium in Hyderabad.
Sharing it here so that it reaches those who couldn’t attend the event. Hope you find it useful.
