UPSC aspirants in West Bengal

They do not show much interest in UPSC exams. Every area in India has its own opinion and stereotypes regarding their career choices like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar where power is mostly demanded among people. Punjab, Haryana etc are mostly interested in sports, foreign, army etc and Gujarat, Maharashtra where money and business is demanded as a career choice. Mostly because Bengalis are fun loving people and they do not like working all day and having stress. They do not take a lot of work loads and live their lives simply and happily. It is also a fact that they are intellectual people and they like to be in the surrounding of the same kind of people. In their opinion, IAS is not a job for intellectuals. They are mostly interested in becoming doctors, engineers or teacher’s.
There is also an other reason behind this and that is that mostly for government jobs, Hindi speaking candidates are preferred so most of the IAS and other government jobs are taken by northern side residents especially from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar etc.
