SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) Congratulates Mr. Pankaj Kumar Mishra on his Achievement
Heroes are not extraordinary people, they are ordinary people who put in a little extra effort. These efforts pay them back well and separate them from the ordinary. One such hero is UPSC 2016 qualifier Mr Pankaj Kumar Mishra with an all India rank 414. He has made all of us proud. An alumnus of SRM university (2007-2011), he holds a B.Tech in Information Technology. He has always been dedicated and punctual throughout his life and this helped him follow the footsteps of success early enough, as he became the recipient of performance based scholarship and was the vice secretary of the SRM cultural club Rubaroo.
He has proved that with hard work and determination you can fulfill all your dreams. Nothing is impossible if you have the correct road map and follow it religiously. Pankaj is an ideal for all of us; whether we are preparing for the civil services examination or not, there’s a lot we can learn from him.
He was placed in TCS in the final year and worked in TCS Mumbai/Lucknow from October 2011 to March 2014. In March, he left TCS and started preparing for civil services. He decided to follow his dream. It was his love for serving the country that kept him motivated and he finally cleared the examination with a commendable rank. It was his fourth attempt this time but his willingness to not give up did wonders. He teaches us how one should follow their dreams and that never giving up is the key to success. He believes that smart work is better than hard work. He stresses on the importance of overall personality development rather than being solely dedicated to academics. This is what has helped him in his journey. We heartily congratulate him for his achievement. We are happy to have him as a part of SRM family"
