Interview Discussion: Think, Rethink and Perform; (TRP)- Day 5
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.
- Usually people try to follow some idol from the field they want to enter into. For example an aspiring cricket might have Sachin Tendulkar as his/ her idol, a badminton player might revere Saina Nehwal. Now you are an aspiring civil servant. Who is your idol from the civil services? Do you even have one? Think about it.
- What in your opinion should an ideal civil servant be like. Can you picture the image?
- Why in your opinion civil servants become corrupt in due course of their career? Have you wondered that this might happen to you as well.
Set 2: Analyse the following issue:
Do you think politics in India has taken few steps back in the past? Why do political parties focus more on religion, caste and language than real issues that matter? Why can’t human development be the focus of political discourse? Is it symptomatic of an immature constituency or is it true for any society? Why even after 70 years of independence elections are fought on the issues of temples and mosques and not on employment and inclusive growth? Can you think of sociological and psychological dimensions associated with this paradigm? Think.
