An IAS Officer can become an actor if he is passionated to become an actor . But an IAS Officer does not have time to do his job and also go for acting . He also need to take a lot of permissions from higher authorities . An IAS officer don't get leaves for entertainment purpose . An IAS officer should abide to the rules of the Government and work serve for the Government . So as an IAS officer it is not that easy to become an actor .
Hope this helps you .
This is a very subjective question. Power is relative, with respect to others and within an organization. To give you an example, An IAS of some big district like Moradabad have more power than the IAS in some small backward district. But this does not belittle the profession of IAS.
Similarly, an ISRO engineer/scientist working on Chandrayaan will have more salary then the engineer who has just entered the organization and working on some existing common project.
Therefore, both of them are relative to the work you do, where you're at, your experience, etc.
Hope this helps. Thank you.
All The Best as you have a dream to become an IAS . I suggest you to take B.Sc as there is science stream in your class 11 and 12 . You have many opportunities as you can do M.Sc or PhD after doing B.Sc . You have an opportunity if you fail to achieve your dream of an IAS officer . If you don't get selected for IAS then you have a chance of becoming professor .
Dream to become an IAS but have an other option also in your career . You should work very hard to become an IAS . But concentrate on your degree as Degree is most crucial to become an IAS as without a degree you are not supposed to write the prelims exam .
