Deaf youth from TN bags All-India 750th rank in coveted UPSC exam
“I had all the qualities to work in a company yet I was rejected. That is when I started studying for UPSC,” he said.
CHENNAI: He topped the State in the hearing-impaired category in Class 12 exams, scored 80 per cent in his college and now, 27-year-old D Ranjith has done it again — this time in UPSC exams. When companies turned him down during placements, rather than giving up, he kept aiming for the stars.
“I had all the qualities to work in a company yet I was rejected. That is when I started studying for UPSC,” he said. A resident of Coimbatore, he travelled all the way to Chennai for training and bagged the 750th rank. His family is positive that he would land in the Internal Revenue Service with this rank. Ranjith aims to help the disabled community.
