< When failed twice - Nidhi gave just three months of the examination when she gave the first attempt and she could not even finish the syllabus. In the second assembly too, his preparation was not as it should be for this examination. By this time, she was also working and it was difficult for her to find time for studies. This was also the time when the householders started telling Nidhi that they gave a lot of time to their careers, now get married. If the elder child of the house is a girl, then this pressure increases many times. Nidhi did not want to give up UPSC's dream under any circumstances. He requested his father for one more last chance. This time she left her job and came to her home and started working hard day and night. He took the path of self study for the preparation of UPSC. Did not leave the room for months - Nidhi's dedication can be gauged from the fact that when Nidhi stepped into the house for the purpose of preparing for UPSC, after leaving the job, for the first time after 6 months, she saw the main gate of her house, that too to take the pre exam. .

Another thing to note with the preparation of Nidhi is that she breaks all myths related to the preparation of UPSC. Neither did he ever take coaching, nor join any group who are preparing for the exam, nor has anyone ever left his family from UPSC and also got selected in government job from where he can get guidance. Thus, wherever a candidate could get help, all the avenues were closed to fund, yet he not only succeeded in UPSC but also got good rank.
