"To be the best, you must be able to handle the worst" : Vinod Kumar Nandem (RRB PO)

“Till the full stop doesn’t come, the sentence is not complete”: Amrendra Kumar (IBPS RRB PO)

I am Vinod Kumar Nandem, From Kadapa,Andhra Pradesh.

I have read many success stories on Bankersadda and got inspired. I'm really glad that now I'm writing mine. So it all started in the year 2014, after completing my Post graduation (MBA-2012), started working for a Tractor Dealer Company in my Hometown. After completing of Two Years I didn't have any Satisfaction in my work then I decided to left out. After few days I started my preparation for Banking and other Competitive exams, After So many Struggles and Narrowly Missed Failures Finally I reached my destination Karnataka Vikas Grameen Bank (Officer Scale 1)

Though I wrote a couple of exams before appearing for IBPS PO and Clerk 2014, that was my first real exam after putting lots of efforts. I was waiting for the results, it takes me three months only to realize that I wasn't Selected. Then the reality hit me. I was down for few days. Didn't talk to anyone. I lost all my hopes. It's been a year.

People started questioning my decisions and the most common ones were 
" You could have gone for a  Private job" or why are you depending on your parents. These days getting govt jobs is not easy". I couldn't give the answer to any of those questions. Because I hadn't has any doubts with myself. However, I resumed my preparation. 

If I can do it, each one of you can do it. 
It doesn't matter which Category you belong to. 
It doesn't matter how old you are. 
It doesn't matter whether you come from Economically Backward Family. 
If you have a Dream and the perseverance to Achieve it, You too Can Taste the Success.

Note: In between these years I also Appeared in So many Private Banks like Karnataka Bank, Karur Vysya Bank, and LIC AAO, LIC ADO, even SSC also...

Though in between in this Journey the thought of giving up my dream crossed my mind often But I Never Give Up. It's true that if You don't get what you wish, something is better than that is Awaiting for you. So those who have been writing exams and Newbies don't give up. 
One day all of your hard work and tough times would pay off. And from that day all your worries would become history.

I would like to thank my Parents and Especially my brother Ashok Kumar Nandem ( Backbone of my Success) and a few of my friends and other people who stood with me, Last but not the Least Bankersadda and team Adda247.
