New Delhi: Unfolding an inspiring and struggle filled journey of a visually impaired IAS officer, a book I: Putting the Eye in IAS reflects the author’s life, but is not an autobiography.

Having cleared the Civils in 2006, Rajesh Singh was appointed as an IAS after a long legal battle and intervention of the Supreme Court.

“Initially, it was very difficult to convince the whole system. There was reluctance to induct an IAS officer who is 100 per cent blind,” Singh said.  “It was the judgment of SC that I became an IAS,” he said.
