Ever since Kanishak Kataria, UPSC Civil Services examination topper, credited his success to his loved ones including his parents, sister and girlfriend, the Twitter has been buzzing with interesting tweets. Youngsters are calling him and his girlfriend as ‘couple goals’ and are thanking the 26-year-old Jaipur-boy for making a girl/boyfriend acceptable in society.
Kataria, however, thinks that his gesture has been blown out of proportion. Talking to the indianexpress.com, he said, “It was natural to credit someone who deserves it. She (his girlfriend) has been all on my side and deserves to be mentioned for her support like the rest of my family does. I did not expect that this will be highlighted so much.”
He said that there was no intention to highlight any issue in particular and he was just reflecting upon his life.
Reversing another trend, he has left his job at Samsung, Korea and returned to India with an aim to ‘serve the country’. He joined a Bengaluru-based start-up and has been preparing for the UPSC exam since then. He cleared the exam in his first attempt and had mathematics as his optional subjects. Kataria’s girlfriend reportedly lives in Japan and they have been in a long-term relationship.
