The Tribune, Chandigarh, August 16, 2008

For someone who could not clear the UPSC examination way back in 1979, Vinod Sharma has come a long way. Today, he can boast of helping more than 300 students to clear the same examination.

The Punjab government honoured him with a State award for this achievement in the “Learned Profession” category at the State-level Independence Day function held at Ludhiana.

Vinod Sharma did not let despondency set in after failing to realise his childhood dream. In fact, he made a career out of his failure by first starting to teach children aspiring for the civil services at his modest home in the old part of Patiala and then went on to establish the Vidya Sagar Shastri Memorial IAS Academy. Two of his students - Ashutosh Jindal and Ankur Garg, have topped the UPSC examination.

Despite the long sounding name, the academy has always remained a one-man show. “Students come to the academy and it becomes my responsibility to make them realise their dreams,” he says.

Explaining the reason for his success, he claims he is the only tutor in the country who is single-handedly providing coaching in History, Sociology and General Studies. Students come to him from all over Punjab and Chandigarh, knowing very well that he is the man behind many success stories.
