Roopa Mishra Interview

Roopa Mishra, the Indian Administrative Service examination topper for 2003, on Saturday said she strongly believed in leading by example.

"I aim to make a difference. It is not whether you are a man or a woman, but the kind of person you are what's important," Mishra, 27, said.

"The kind of spirit I have in me, I would do in the same way whether I am a man or woman," she said replying to queries from reporters at her parents' Shahidnagar residence in Bhubaneswar.

Mishra attributed her success to her faith in God and handwork put in for around ten months. She credits her husband Anshuman Tripathy, parents, in-laws and teachers also for the same.

"My husband is my friend and he initiated me into this system of examination," she said. Tripathy is a fellow at the IIM, Calcutta.

On her success in the Union Public Service Commission-conducted examination, Mishra said many factors went into

making a person successful, but one mistake could make everything crash.

The topper said she had done very well in the exam, but didn't expect to top the list. "It came as a bonus."

The news of her topping the exam came from a career magazine's office."I was thrilled, I wept," Mishra, the daughter of Danda Nirodh Mishra, an IAS officer, said.

Mishra studied science at the plus-two level and then switched to commerce, completing her post-graduation in management from Utkal University.

She briefly worked for a local TV channel anchoring programmers and taught at the Directorate of Distant and

Continuing Education of the Utkal University. She married three-and-half years ago.

Asked whether she ever dreamt of becoming an IAS officer, a beaming Rupa said: "Not exactly but I had many dreams at different times."

Mishra, who had public administration and psychology as her subjects, stayed in Delhi for ten months to prepare for the exam. "It is very important to chose subjects with care and I chose public administration as it is relevant and psychology as it deals with human behaviour which is interesting," she said.

Replying to a question as to why she chose to join thecivil service when she had a degree in management, Mishra said:

"I believe the civil servant is the biggest manager of all."

As regards her preparation, she said she did not slogbut had a clear idea as to how she would go about it.

Describing poverty in Orissa as an enigma, Mishra said: "It's poverty amidst plenty."

Mishra is the first IAS topper from the state since Prafulla Chandra Mishra in 1982 and Hrusikesh Panda in 1979.
