    Wahan zindagi rehti hai, khuda hota hai
    Jhustuju ho toh safar khatam kahan hota hai
    Yun tu har modh pe manzil ka gumaah hota hai~~

  • defense studies biggest drawback is only 20% material is available in english and those opting for it are also hindi medium especially after the removal of csat.... nd it is not that scoring as people say... hardly ne topper (even in this forum) is not fro defense studies.... its all hoax. all subects are good to score but best bet seems to be social work

    bhai log i have been adviced to avoid social work ..the friend of mine and his friends say that more people are taking this so scaling is drastic if you write average..so better opt for defence.... @MaterialisticMonk baba aap kahan rahte ho?? delhi??

  • Yaar confuse kr dia aap logo ne :'(

    ..@ramadheer
    Ha,Delhi rhta hu
    ·
  • pata nahin yaar last year i wrote social work and failed..even i was not prepared exam se 4 din pahle book liya tha sangeeta tej.....now friend is saying ki chod do..
    defence ka english me koi one stop book batao yaar..usne social work ko drop karne to bola but defence ka koi mat nahin bataya...vo hindi lit. ko bada badiya bola but ab mere se vo na ho payega.
