Securing the 51st rank in PCS-J, Shailja wasn’t just about books. She also showcased her agility and sportiness as a district-level badminton player. Her ambition for the judicial service was crystal clear early on, as she pursued her BA LLB from the reputed Ram Manohar Lohia National Law College in Lucknow.

Sudhanshu’s Ascent:

Just like his father and elder brother, Sudhanshu had a clear vision. With an unwavering focus on his studies after completing his LLB, he pursued the path of judiciary. Securing the 276th rank in PCS-J on his very first attempt without attending any coaching classes speaks volumes of his dedication.

Siblings’ Study Strategy:

Their study approach was unique. Shailja and Sudhanshu adopted a collaborative method, with one preparing a topic one day and the other the next. This not only fostered sibling bond but also ensured comprehensive coverage. Whenever doubts arose, they had their elder brother, Arijit, to guide them, embodying the family’s collective spirit.
