UPSC Mains ‘High Order Thinking [HOT]’ GS Questions


1. India’s relations with Central Asia has been more symbolic than of substance. More than two decades of stagnation and cosmetic ties have diminished India’s prospects in the region vis-a-vis China. Do you agree with this assessment? Critically comment. What course corrections would you suggest to give boost to the ties?

2. It would be more productive to influence ASEAN countries and participate in their development, while at the same time , working to produce better relations with China. Do you agree? Critically examine.

3. Even though the G20 platform is meant to promote global economic recovery, promote sustainable development and discuss the roadmap for combating climate change, the recent terrorist attacks have brought terrorism at the forefront of discussions. It only shows that global prosperity and development is possible only in an atmosphere of peace and harmony. Comment.

4. What do you understand by the term ‘Maritime Silk Road’? Critically examine its implications vis-a-vis India’s interests?

5. The recent visits of the PM abroad have indicated a more inclusive policy for the Indian Diaspora. Analyze the role of the Indian Diaspora in India’s soft power diplomacy.
