Rajya Sabha Debate Videos
On Rajya Sabha TV, there are many programs coming up every day. Among them is “THE BIG PICTURE”, where a discussion on various government issues, policies and programs are dealt in detail. It has experts from government departments and ministries other than eminent personalities and subject experts from varied fields.
UPSC basically frames questions based on opinion and they require generalist approach rather than facts. These debates and discussions will give you various dimensions from an expert point of view. Moreover, you will also get the opinion of government officials and ministers, that means more or less the opinion and stand of government itself.
When UPSC asks such questions, one is required to present his/her opinion. But one’s opinion should not be biased, rather it should be a balanced one. So, what do you mean by Balanced Opinion?
It means when Government is coming up with any policy or law, as an administrator one should weigh both the pros and cons of an issue and make sure that the larger public good is given due importance.
By going through these debates one can generate various opinions that are not the case when one reads any newspaper editorials or articles. Henceforth, we are presenting all important discussions in a lucid and comprehensive manner so that an aspirant who is unable to listen or follow this discussion due to Digital Divide (or for a person from a remote area), should not miss out on the opportunity for such important discussions.
What is there in Rajya Sabha Debate Videos
- Discussions on various socio-economic and political discourses.
- It gives you various opinions on such topics from experts who are many a times government officials or subject experts.
- Analyzing an issue from multiple-dimensions becomes difficult while reading articles but when we see live discussions, get loads of quality information and dimensions in less time.
NOTE: Highly recommended from Mains point of view and generating one’s opinion on important issues. This will also help in your Interview.
