Govind, who was up in the ancient city of Varanasi, was shaped by his father’s hardships as a rickshaw puller trying to support his family. But then Govind’s mother became ill, adding to the already unstable financial situation. Govind’s father had to sell his rickshaw in a last-ditch effort to raise money for her medical care.

Jaiswal’s father never wavered in his dedication to his son’s education, even after experiencing the pain of losing his mother in 1995. Fed up with seeing his son thrive, he helped Govind all the way through high school and college. Driven by his father’s steadfast support and sacrifices, Jaiswal set off on the difficult journey to Delhi to prepare for the UPSC examination with unwavering purpose.

Even in the face of financial hardship, Govind’s father did everything in his power to support his son’s academic endeavors. He was a relentless worker who embodied the spirit of parental perseverance and sacrifice.

Motivated by his father’s unwavering perseverance, Jaiswal committed himself fully to his studies, eschewing the luxury of making several attempts at the UPSC exam. Rather, he was determined to succeed in his first venture, even though he knew it would have a significant effect on his family’s future. After years of arduous preparation, Govind Jaiswal’s dream of becoming an IAS officer was realized in 2006 when he triumphed and achieved an amazing All India Rank of 48 in the UPSC test. His story serves as a tribute to the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges with tenacity, willpower, and steadfast family support.
