UPSC Mains: ZFI, Haj Committee students among 30 successful Muslims

UPSC mains results out; 30 Muslims in the list of successful candidates


New Delhi: Pervez Naikwadi has always kept very close to his heart '786', the number considered auspicious by many in the Indian sub-continent. And when the results of the 2012 UPSC Mains exams were declared on Friday, he was not only in the list of the successful candidates but his rank was also the same - his lucky number '786'.


You may call it superstition or sheer coincidence. But Pervez believes that the number is lucky for him and helped in cracking the Civil Services exams considered as one of the toughest in India.


Pervez is not alone who thinks so. In fact when he met Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan first time after cracking the exam on Monday, he too was impressed by his rank.


"Pervez you are blessed by Allah", a smiling Chavan said the moment Pervez said about his rank.


But that doesn't mean Pervez denies the hard work needed for cracking the tough exam.


"Hard work and determination is the primary requirement for achieving any small or big thing", he said.


24-year old Pervez Naikwadi hails from Satara district of Maharashtra. His father, Azeez Naikwaid is Deputy Commissioner of Police in Patan district.


Pervez is so fond of '786' number is that almost all his belongings and electronic gadgets have its mark. His cell number has 786 and the registration number of his motor-bike too has 786.


He says that the number has become part and partial of his life. He says many times when he bought railway tickets, the ticket number had 786 as three digits. "Even my HSC  board exam seat number had '786' in it", he said.


Pervez had benefited from the free coaching provided by Maharashtra's Minority Development Department.


Interestingly, due to some technical reasons, Pevez was unable to get admission at this centre. However, timely intervention by Minority Development Minister Arif Naseem Khan helped him in getting the admission at the government centre.


A total of 30 Muslims have cleared the civil services exams from all across the country this year. Pervez Naikwadi and Shakeel Ansari are the two Muslims who are from Maharashtra.
