Every war story has two parts to it: the victors and the vanquished. Such stories celebrate the champions, yet they recount the fortitude and the grit of the conquered. UPSC is one such colossal battle— not only of very high stakes but also of very fine margins. But what makes it distinct is, in this war, there are just victors.
Heroes are created out of thin air and promising careers are decimated beyond repair. Victors are cherished long after they cross the Rubicon while the vigour, valour and the valiance of the very many brave martyrs simply die away— untold, unheard and unsung.
