India is the land of villages, and because of this, we have a varied and rich culture. Every village in our country has its own identity, either it might be by culture or population or by nature. Even though some villages are small, their people have good educations.

India is a well-developing country. We have identified ourselves at the forefront in many fields. One of them is education. There are many exams in the world and India’s civil service exam is also one. It is one of the toughest exams in the world.

Many people dream of cracking the exam, but only a few achieve it.
But do you know there is a village in UP which has given the highest number of civil servants?

Yes, Madho Patti is a rural village in the Jaunpur District in Uttar Pradesh, which has given the highest number of Civil servants to the nation. It is said that the village is making a significant contribution to the country. The village has given India 47 IAS, IPS officers and State PCS officers. All these are presently employed in the offices of the Prime Minister and Chief Ministers.

Several people have chosen a career in civil services and some youngsters from the village have also found successful careers with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and the World Bank.

This successful journey began in 1914 when the first person from the village became an officer. It was Mustafa Hussain who started this streak. The second officer was in 1951. In 1953 another qualified for the CSE. Not just this, the village has broken a record after four siblings cracked the exam and got selected for the IAS.

There are a total of 75 houses in Madho Patti village, but the number of officers who came out of this place is more than 50. It is not just about sons and daughters of this village; daughters-in-law are also handling the post of officers. Students here start preparing for the Civil Services Examination from college time itself.

The village of Madho Patti has a population of around 4,000 and is inhabited by people belonging to the Rajput caste. In this village of officers, most of the population is dependent on farming. Wheat, gram, peas, pigeon pea, mustard, potato, maize, sugarcane etc. are cultivated in the village.

Surprisingly, this village has no coaching or facility to build officers or aspirants. The reason behind the success is only hard work.
