IASbaba’s Interview Discussion UPSC IAS [DAY 1]: Think, Rethink and Perform (TRP)
Set 1: Ask these questions to yourself; contemplate and come out with a concrete answer. Invest at least 30 minutes on this set of questions.
- What do you want to become?
- Why do you want to join civil services?
- If you qualify the civil services examination, would you become what you want to become?
Set 2: Analyse the following issue:
Article 370 was abrogated in August this year. While the majority of the citizens in rest of the part of India are happy and elated at this historical decision by the Government, a segment of the society feels that in the ongoing jubilation and celebrations, we have forgotten the real people- the Kashmiris. While there can hardly be a debate on the decision to abrogate Article 370, questions are being raised about the manner in which it has been implemented. Are we really winning the hearts and minds of the Kashmiris? Are e not alienating them by not including them in the wider discourse of the issue? Are we not making a statement that we are no more a soft state? Somehow, it appears that underneath the blanket of national joy and chest thumping, there is a simmering discontent and distrust that will alienate the Kashmiris further.
