Right from childhood Govind Jaiswal bore the brunt of India's class obsessed society. Son of a rickshaw puller, he was humiliated from childhood. From being thrown out of the house by his upper class friend's father, to being regularly taunted when he started preparing for his exams. From many of the taunts, he remembered one: "what will you study and do? Buy two rickshaws?"

They were a family of five, living in a single room house. At the height of their poverty they ate pickle with water. His father sold off the rickshaw he had, and some land, so Govind could go to Delhi and prepare for IAS. As his sister says, if Govind wouldn't clear IAS, they would be left with nothing, and they would surely die.

And here he is today. UPSC topper, and a man who everybody in his village wants to know. Wants to shake hands with. And they now tell him, "we knew you would make it."

Watch this video. Excuse the music, but the message is loud and clear. Nothing can come in the way of a man who has made up his mind.
