"My father set up all the facilities for us, and my mother brought me here," Vivek said and added that his mother and he were highly motivated by their professors. He said that despite the fact that they had both studied together, he had never imagined the two of them passing the exam simultaneously. Vivek said, "We're both really thrilled."

Bindu began reading novels to her kid while he was in class 10 in order to inspire him. Bindu became inspired while encouraging her kid to study for the PSC tests.
