  • Pranjali Yadav

    Hello Baba!

    Firstly , I would like to thank you for creating such an utile site. It’s really assistive.

    Now, i would like to ask a query. I am in a dielemma and utter confusion. My ultimate goal is Ias, but my mother suggests me to do post grad and den prepare for this,so tha I’ll have a back up (I can work as a lecturer then).
    I can’t decide whether I should continue with my self-prep or should do it after pg. I have completed my this year.

    • Dear Pranjali

      Can you do justice to the word “ULTIMATE” used by you? If it would have been so, there shouldn’t be any confusion, whatsoever.

      Since you have completed your B.Tech, you are young enough to start preparation for IAS. There will be advises and suggestions all your life. After your PG, there might be suggestions and compulsion to get married (You are a Girl and this is so obvious).

      It is a simple question of “What you want and how important is this for you”?

      Everything comes next. There shouldn’t be any confusion if you are determined. Also, you can even prepare while pursuing P.G. You shouldn’t wait to think about it after PG.

      Life is too uncertain. Are you sure to maintain the same zeal after PG? Make best use of your present time. You are young, determined, energetic and full of life. This is the time for you.

      Read these articles and decide

      • Pranjali Yadav

        I feel bereft of words to thank you. 🙂

        And getting your reply
        At this hour really amazed me and inspired me at the same time. That’s “Dedication” and for that “RESPECT” 🙂
        Thank you once again.

        With regards

  • Howard Roark

    Wow. This blog is pretty good. Read about it today on Quora. Good Work.
    One more weapon in my CSE Preparation arsenal. Thanks.

    PS Modify this wordpress theme, as it makes your blog look like a cheaper version of Insights.

    • Insights is not the only one to have wordpress theme neither it has the patent of it. . We opted wordpress since it is more interactive and control is easy. Who knows the version or work achieved is there’s or someone else? Since the back-end never got the credit. Anyways, thanks for the appreciation. Enjoy the work if you like it 🙂

  • Chandu RedE

    Dear baba,

    • Very soon..Have patience..Till then start NCERT’s

  • Anoop

    Baba, I gave my first attempt this year and doing pretty good in pre, not to that extent where I can clear it. Its about believe on myself. I am turning 26 this year and its killing me that its too late for this exam. How can I make myself believe that its never too late and how can I build trust in me. I am preparing for 2016. I want to know how to start and from where should I start this journey? I am a working professional

    • Anoop

      Now you are with us 🙂 Flush your worries and tighten your belt
      Very soon we will be releasing our 2016 Plan. You just wait for it. Do everything that makes you happy and once you are into 2016 plan with us….you will be confident enough to clear this exam

      • Anoop

        Thank you baba. Yeah I know that biggest risk in life is not taking any risk. I am waiting for 2016 plan. I don’t know I will make it true or not but at least I will never have regret that I didn’t try 🙂

  • Sachin Yelane

    Baba, I am preparing for 2016 UPSC exam. I have decided to take notes from newspaper. Can you tell me which types of news should I focus and which should I avoid? What will be the best way to prepare notes?
    Currently I am reading Indian Express.

  • Rashmi Lather

    Guys, anyone with sociology optional…?? Can u suggest some good coaching at mukhrjeenagar

    • angel moon

      try either mahapatra sir (vajiram & ravi) or upendra gaur sir( safdarjung enclave).They are the best in this field

      • Rashmi Lather

        Have you heard about anyone from mukhrjeenagar??

        • angel moon

          no,not yet. As per my information,these two are the best ones.U can risk ur time,if u want a good guidance for sociology optional.

          • Rashmi Lather

            Yupp ryt..thnxxx 🙂

          • Kewal Patil

            Can sociology covered without coaching

          • angel moon

            i guess,sociology needs an in depth knowledge for people belonging to technical background. Me,being an engineer,find it necessary to have sociology coaching.It depends upon your confidence and knowledge of the subject.

          • Kewal Patil

            Thank you… I will think over it

          • Kewal Patil

            Ty… Btw which coaching Institute will be gud? ? How will u describe sociology in one word?? It can be covered in 3-4 months ??

          • angel moon

            U shud go for Upendra gaur sir’s coaching.He is the best in paper 1 which comprises of thinkers.sociology is basically the study of society and its related aspects. To know it better,go thru. NCERT books before considering it as an optional. Yes,it can be covered within 3-4 months.It’s syllabus to short enuf to be covered within the stipulated time.

            All the best for your efforts .

          • Kewal Patil

            Thank you… 🙂

    • Vivek Bhardwaj

      priyanka nver lose hope y u fear when baba is here

    • Hi Priyanka

      Sorry for the late reply. Because this section is only for Motivational stuff. 🙂

      Since you are planning for 2017, do not get tensed. Keep it light

      First of all get a clear understanding of portions of CSAT and particularly the themes on which UPSC is asking questions. Introspect the areas of your weakness and work on them first.

      Be regular in doing it. You have all the time 🙂

      Do not rush now. Be patient in achieving targets set for yourself. People start with so much of enthusiasm but its more important to live that process.

  • sweety

    Hi team,
    I am an IT professional ,will appear for upsc in 2017 it would be my attempt.i work for 9-6 and take out 4-5 hours on weekdays for study.please suggest the study plan that i should follow .There are so many things.Geography is my optional subject.I need to start from zero so how and from where to start?

    • Aman Yadav

      Hi, frankly speaking, it will be really tough to manage your job along with your studies and to make it even more tough is the fact that UPSC has preponed the 2017 exam by 2 months. So, considering this along with the fact that you’re starting Geography from scratch and taking into account the burnout from your job hours affecting your study hours, it’s going to be quite a herculean task for you. So if you can, try to quit the job and get going for UPSC full time.

      If you cannot quit the job under any circumstances, try to go fro smart preparation. With that I mean try to go for completing the meatiest chunk of the syllabus and go for integrated study of any topic both for prelims and mains together.
      The most important tip that I can give is to never compromise on developing your answer writing as that is what can make or break it for you. try to cover the syllabus as soon as you can so that you can devote last 2 months before your exam towards developing your answer writing, creating a plan for yourself and taking as many mock tests as you can as this is what will take you the distance.
      Now, coming to Geography, considering that you’re starting from scratch, do not go for advanced books straightaway. Consider NCERTs as your bible. If there is any amount of basic understanding about Geog. then you can pick up 11th and 12th NCERTs (old or new whatever you feel like- I prefer the new ones for its flow). Once you’re done with the NCERTs go for advanced book and study material for IGNOU. Try to look at the previous year question paper and see for youself what is the patter on the question and plan your preparation accordingly. Do a lot of answer writing practice if you are serious about getting a good score that can help you clear the exam.

      If there is any further query, please feel free to ask.
      Good Luck!
