UPSC Interview Discussion: Think, Rethink and Perform; (TRP)- Day 3
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 makes you happy? Do small things matter to you? Or you aspire for something great in your life and then become happy?
- Can the service you are aspiring for give you happiness? Is your happiness dependent on your job?
- Can there be other sources of happiness as well? Think about it.
Set 2: Analyse the following issue:
There appears to be a race for building statues in India. While there is no doubt about the enormous financial outlays being diverted to such massive projects, people argue that such projects are needed for creating brand India and paying homage to our forgotten leaders and Gods. They also argue that such projects would attract tourists and provide employment to several thousand young citizens.
What is your point of view in this regard? Is it justified to invest so heavily on statues in a country that has half the stunted children population of the world? Shouldn’t that money be spent on the social sector to make the lives of poor better? Think!
