When her son was in class 10, Bindu began reading books to encourage him to read, but it also inspired her to study for the Kerala Public Service Commission (PSC) exams. In nine years, she and her son will both be entering the government service.

While Bindu, 42, passed the Last Grade Servants (LGS) exam with a rank of 92, her 24-year-old son passed the Lower Divisional Clerk (LDC) exam with a rank of 38, according to the proud mother.

She explained that what began as a step to encourage her son to read led her to enrol in a coaching centre, where she later enrolled her son after his graduation.

Fourth attempt was successful

After three attempts, two for LGS and one for LDC, her fourth attempt was successful, she said, adding that her main goal was to pass the ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) supervisor exam, and passing the LGS exam was a "bonus."

Bindu, an anganwadi teacher for the past ten years, said her teachers at the coaching centre, her friends, and her son were all sources of encouragement and support as she attempted to pass the PSC exams multiple times.

Her son, who also spoke to the TV station, stated that while they did not study together, they did discuss certain topics.

"I prefer to study alone. Moreover, she does not always study. She studies when she gets time and after her anganwadi duties," he said.

"I had given a police exam a shot earlier, but my name came in the supplementary list," he said, adding: "This time around, I studied more for the LDC exam." Regarding her studying pattern, Bindu agreed with what her son said that she does not always study.

Took break till next round of exams

"I am the best example of what a PSC aspirant should be and should not be. By that I mean I do not study continuously. I start preparing for the exam six months before the test date. Then I take a break till the next round of exams are announced three years later.

"Maybe, it is due to these breaks in preparation that I never managed to clear the exams before now. At the same time, I am also an example of how persistence pays off in the end. If you keep at it despite the failures, you will eventually attain success," the anganwadi teacher said.
