IASbaba’s Interview Discussion UPSC IAS [DAY 5]: Think, Rethink and Perform (TRP)
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:
Is multilateralism retreating in the new global order? Why are we witnessing big economic powers withdrawing from multilateral agreements? In this light, share your views on India’s decision not to join RCEP. Is it the right decision? In the age of retreating multilateralism, what should be India’s approach to address the challenges and preserve her own economic and strategic interests?
