Most of the toppers of the UPSC Civil Services Examination held last year had one thing in common. They all stayed away from social media, to avoid “distractions” moreover they considered it a waste of their time and stay focused on their preparation. Many of them even deactivated their social media accounts. So, at first attempt, it is difficult to find them online.
“I considered it a waste of my time. I deactivated my Facebook and Twitter accounts. I am on Instagram, but checked it only rarely, and then too, I only connected with a few people close to me,” said Kanishak Kataria, the all-India topper from Jaipur.
