Note: Click on the links and then answer on respective questions!


Welcome to Day 33 of TLP Phase II. Please understand that the next 12 weeks are not meant to test your knowledge. Most of you are giving your first attempt and its really important for you to self assess yourself over the fundamentals of various subjects. And even if you have appeared for CSM before, it is always desirable to brush up your basics before you go on to attempt highly analytical and thought provoking questions asked by UPSC. TLP Phase I was designed precisely for that. Moving on to Phase II, we will cover all possible issues of contemporary importance as well as touching upon various aspects of static subjects.

Please be sincere and regular in this phase of your preparation because what you build here will become the foundation of phase II of TLP.

1. The demand for criminalizing marital rape has come from various social quarters, notably women activists. It is often argued however, that the institution of marriage is so sacred and sacrosanct to the Indian society that the decision to criminalize marital rape can be counterproductive and it won’t make much of a difference. What do you think? Discuss.

2. The recent decision by the state of Bihar to ban alcohol is a well intentioned move, however, past experiences have shown that prohibition can’t curb the problem of alcoholism. In fact banning alcohol creates even more serious socio-economic problems. What is your view on this issue? Discuss.

3. Real empowerment of women lies in ensuring their economic liberty. Do you agree? Substantiate.

4. The decision by the apex court of India to declare Triple Talaq as unconstitutional addresses a grave problem. However, it is not certain whether the judicial pronouncement will have meaningful effect on the ground reality. Critically comment.

5. The latest shift in USA’s strategy for Pakistan and Afghanistan is a golden opportunity for India to capitalise. Do you agree? Critically analyse.

Note – The answers will be reviewed only if it is posted before 9.30 pm everyday
