WHY MPSC ?
MPSC is meant for candidates who display great administration skills, meticulous decision-making, exhibit right judgment powers along with the ability to handle the difficult situations at all given circumstances. Most of candidatess opt for Civil Services for a red beacon or just to become famous, but as long as there is no commitment towards helping people and addressing their solutions – the real point of becoming a Civil Servant is suppressed.
Civil Services, unlike the private jobs and businesses, shouldn’t be approached with ‘what is there for me?’ Rather it should have an outlook of societal reformation, and candidates must see the bigger picture of what they can deliver for the nation and how they can bring positive changes in the current manifesto of society.
Unlike any other job which remains confined to the organization you work for, Civil Services gives an opportunity to work towards the country and its citizens. One who knows this service can understand why there is too much flux of people opting for Civil Services, even if we keep the power and status aside – theirs is still something substantial in the picture.
Civil services not only demand knowledge, which most of the MPSC aspirants traditionally think, rather cracking MPSC surpasses all the primitive approaches and seeks for candidates who possess a strong love, dedication, and commitment towards the nation.
“स्वसुख निरभिलाष: खिद्यसे लोक हेतो:” is a slogan in Maharashtra Public Service Commission. This was written by Classical Sanskrit poet Kalidasa, greatest poet and dramatist in the Sanskrit language. It conveys that “a human should be “selfless” who has no expectations for themselves. Whatever they do or have is for entire humanity.”
