UPSC Interview Discussion: Think, Rethink and Perform; (TRP)- Day 2
Set 1: Ask these questions to yourself; contemplate and come out with a concrete answer (not to be discussed on this forum). Invest at least 30 minutes on this set of questions.
- What will be your order of priority in life among the following- money, family, love and success? Why? Will you compromise one over the other.
- What will a career in the civil services give you from the above? Can you achieve all of them?
- What if you don’t qualify for the civil services? Will you be able to achieve the above? Do you have a back up plan? Think about it.
Set 2: Analyse the following issue:
Why does religion still occupy a prominent place in India’s political discourse? Aren’t we as a nation lagging severely on important fronts like health, education, infrastructure etc and yet too concerned about religious feelings getting hurt? What mentality does it reflect? What sort of perception we are creating about India on the global stage? Don’t you think it has always been India’s spiritual belief system that transcends political boundaries and not it its religious orthodoxies? Think about it.
