An Interview with Delhi Police Exam Successful
Cononstable Lalit Mann, S/O Sri. Jasbir Singh Mann, has attained success in Delhi Police exam which is no ordinary feat, given the tough and very competitive nature of this exam for which hundreds of thousands of young students appear every year. The exam tests both the physical and intellectual qualities of the candidates. Mr. Mann comes from a middle class family of rural background without easy access of resources and proper guidance. He is a role model for all the aspirants who aspire for success in this exam.
The Interview by KLA Begins :
KLA : Congratulations on your success. Please tell us about your family background?
Mann : My father is a farmer and my mother is a housewife. We are a close knit family. We have a large family in the village which includes uncle, aunt and cousins. We are a source of help and support to one another. However, if someone wants to prepare for competitive exam, rural background will be challenging. There are no good books available. There are no educational resources. There is no one to guide properly. Nevertheless, my family stood by me when I was preparing for this exam. The family members constantly encouraged me and motivated me for the success.
KLA : Tell us about your educational qualification?
Mann : I have completed class X from Jai Mann Public School and my class XII exam from Alipur Govt. Boys’ Senior Secondary School. I did my graduation from Delhi University. Thereafter I went on pursuing my MA from IGNOU.
KLA : What makes you interested in a police job? Who is your source of inspiration for this job?
Mann : I have always been interested in joining the police force from as long as I can remember. I have always wanted to serve my nation and help people. The police force gives the opportunity to serve the nation and help the people. I have the blessings of my elder brother Kuldeep Mann and my parents. They were the source of my inspiration. They taught me to stand strong during tough and challenging times. I think, a competitive exam is like a battle that you cannot fight alone. It is difficult to sustain without the support of your family members. While you have to study and write the exam, the support of parents and family members motivates you to continue studying. When your family members support you, they put trust in you. They believe, you will fulfil their dreams and when you realize the expectations of your family members, you are motivated to study. If you have no one to motivate and support you, it is natural to think for whom are you toiling, why are you struggling so much but when your parents support you, you have a goal and motivation to achieve your goal because that will make everyone happy.
KLA : Are you trying for other exams? If yes, what are other exams?
Mann : Yes, I am trying for some other exams like SSC CGL etc.
KLA : What is your career goal?
Mann : I want to lead a decent life in police or any other career with enough salary package to take care of my family.
KLA : What advice would you like to give to students who are trying for success in competitive exams?
Mann : I would want to tell them to keep their goal always in mind. They should make a time table of study hours which they should follow strictly without any distraction. I would also want to tell them not to get disappointed after they have failed in any exam. If they feel disheartened and disappointed, it will affect their success in other exams. So my suggestion to them is not to feel depressed or disappointed because one failure in an exam is not the final failure. They should feel encouraged by failure so that they can put in more effort and more focus in the forthcoming exams. This would prove rewarding for their next exams and they will certainly be successful.
KLA : What was your preparation strategy for written exam?
Mann : I used to study for 4 to 5 hours every day. I relied on the books published by Kiran Prakashan for reasoning and Maths. I practiced Maths from Kiran 6500. Kiran Prakshan books offer complete solution to competitive exams. Their reasoning and maths books are especially unique and any one who seriously prepares using these books will gain a lot of practice which would help them in achieving success in these exams. The important point I want to mention here is that practice is very important and when you practice from the best books available in the market which are tried and tested you can improve your chances of success. In my case, Kiran Prakashan books proved very useful.
KLA : What was your preparation strategy for physical exam?
Mann : I did not make any strategy for physical exam. I was always physically fit. I was always interested in sports and I participated in all sporting activities as a result my physical fitness was always up to the mark. I have developed a strong stamina which has been possible because of my interest in sports. However, what applies to me may not necessarily apply to all others. For some students who are trying for police job, it may be necessary to develop strong stamina, which cannot be developed in one day. So if they are trying for a police job, they should pay sincere attention to their physical fitness.
KLA : Which newspaper and magazines did you read for preparation ?
Mann : I did not read any newspaper for the preparation but I read Pratiyogita Kiran (magazine) and books on GK which were sufficient for the GK part of this exam. Now what is right for me may not be right for everyone. If I did not read a newspaper, it does not mean you should also not read a newspaper. Everyone has his or her own strategy, hence they should make their strategy tailored to their needs. I found everything required for GK in GK books and Kiran’s magazine. Others should make their strategy based on their interests, need and convenience.
KLA : What is your suggestion or recommendation regarding books to pass this exam?
Mann : You should read Kiran Prakashan books for Maths and Reasoning. In order to keep yourself updated with General knowledge you can read any magazine. I read Pratiyogita Kiran. I also studied Lucent’s book for General Knowledge.
KLA : What was your daily routine while preparing for this exam?
Mann : I did not make any special routine for this exam. I devoted four to five hours every day for this exam. My daily routine has always been to get up early in the morning and then go for jogging. After spending 45 minutes to 1 hour in the park doing exercises and running I used to come back home, take bath and have my breakfast. After that I used to study till lunch time. After the lunch I used to rest for a short while and then I would sit down to study for an hour or so. Then in the evening I would again go to the field to play some sports like cricket or football or any other sport. After coming back in the evening, I used to sit for study for an hour or two hours and then I used to take my dinner and go to bed thereafter.
KLA : How many hours did you study every day?
Mann : On an average I used to study for about 5 hours every day. The five hour study was divided into one or two hours of sitting throughout the day. I would also mention that I never counted the hours of study. Some days it would be more or on some days it would be less.
KLA : Thanks and all the best for your future.
Mann : You are welcome.
