Munish Sharma, a Delhi biochemist turned MBA, has stood second in the Union public service commission (UPSC) exams.
He doffs his hat for his success not to textbooks, but to newspapers:
“I did not study too much, just read The Hindu newspaper word to word. I loved it.
“I read the newspaper, I wrote the exam.
“I did not shut myself in to study for hours. I continued reading the papers,” he said, adding that his mother, who also loves newspapers and reading was his main inspiration.”
