Full of all vim and vigour, about 28-year-old Divya Shakti, who notched up 79th rank in union public service commission (UPSC) examinations, on Tuesday felt that human potentiality is inexhaustible and said like any other walk of lives, time has left scope for the improvement in the administration.

“There is no gain saying the fact that pools of talents have rendered their services for the nation and brought about sea changes in our country.
