Inspiration - This Tiny Village in Uttar Pradesh Has 75 Households — and 47 IAS Officers!

 
In the tiny village of Madhopatti in Uttar Pradesh, the unexpected is routine. Fewer than 0.004 percent of the people who write the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) exam every year make the final cut.

This village, in Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh, also holds the record for four siblings who have all cleared the exam. These four brothers are, in descending order of age, Vinay Kumar Singh, Chatrapal Singh, Ajay Kumar Singh, and Shashikant Singh. Vinay Kumar, the oldest, cleared the exam in 1955. He retired as chief secretary of Bihar. Chatrapal was chief secretary of Tamil Nadu.

The first civil servant from Madhopatti was Khan Bahadur Syed Mohammad Mustafa (father of poet Wamiq Jaunpuri). He joined the civil services (then the Indian Civil Services, during British India) in 1914. There seems to have been a bit of a slow-down after this, since the next person to clear the exam was Indu Prakash in 1952. But things have been going strong since then.

Despite the number of people from this village who have made it to India’s elite bureaucratic service, it still lacks basic amenities. Roads are potholed, electricity supply is erratic, medical facilities are very basic, and there are still no coaching institutes for IAS aspirants.
