Well, there is nothing filmy here. But she deserves the headlines.  Shubhra Saxena has topped the UPSC ( Union Public Service Commission) Exams this year.

She quit a well paying IT job to sit for the IAS exams.  An IIT-Roorkee alumnus ( in Paper Technology 2002), Saxena joined Oracles in Hyderabad in 2002 but shifted to Noida when her software engineer husband Shashank began working for CSC. Soon, Shubhra too joined her husband in the same company, but she was not satisfied with her job.  Itching to serve the rural population, she would deliver free lectures to students who came to her for guidance on rural development schemes.  And then came the IAS dream.

Born in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareli, Saxena had most of her education in Jharkhand as her father was an engineer with Coal India.

And the cherry on the top is that this year, all the top three positions have been bagged by female candidates. At second position is Sharandeep Kaur who has done her MA from Punjab University. And Kiran Kaushal has secured the third position. Woohoo! Go Girls go!
