Sociology group 2016, only value addition. Experienced aspirants. Whatsapp group.

For experienced aspirants, im starting a new group. This group is only for those who already have a firm grasp in socio. We will just be adding and sorting current examples for each topic, diagrams, answer writing practice, brain storming etc.

So, i am looking for a small group over whatsapp, only 2-3 people, who have given mains last year or before, are studying alone, and have good marks in socio, but trying to push for an extra 20-30 marks.

PM me your phone no., attempt, marks in last attempt.
CSE 2015. Got in.

CSE 2016. Hopefully, the hallowed All India Services.

    i am game for this.but i am without whatsapp.have removed it from my phone,it was perhaps a major distraction from studies.

    if you can form a google group for this to share materials and brainstorm some topics,add current affairs example,i can contibute my bit.

    i have scored 857 in mains 2015,scored 217 in sociology, as you can guess 20-30 extra marks in sociology would have pushed me to the final list.
    "i am the guy doing my job,you must be the other guy."
  • @mrlobo
    Yea, i too score 221, and need those extra 20-30. This can also be done via telegram, and for that you dont need a mobile app. Its cross platform.

  • Don't know whether I am qualified for this group. This was Second attempt and first with full prep.

    2014- 106+69 Knew nothing
    2015- 112+88.

    Essay 131, GS-355. Interview 143 only.
    Ahista chal ae jindagi abhi, kai karz chukana baki hai.
  • @INeeDtoGetIn I wrote my first mains in 2015. Self-study, passionate about Socio as took few courses in College. Love reading western thinkers in detail.

    I scored Paper-1: 111, Paper-2: 98 (Total ~200)

    I can push scores by 40+ marks.

    I think Telegram would be the perfect platform. Ease of conversations is fluid because one can quote specific text and reply to those (just like forum). I highly recommend it.

    Messaged you my phone number.

    PS- Congrats for making it to the list this year!

  • what is the sociological explanation of lower voting rates in urban centres compared to rural centres? lets start with simple questions to bring about socio perspectives in our answers..

    one point would be alienation is more in urban population than rural population so This sense of chronic alienation results in disinterest towards various institutions of life, state being one of them .

    Good one.. Also the difference in social structure of urban & rural..Rural predominantly agrarian and working class compared to middle and elite class(bureacratic,political,corporate,business) of urban.. rural- more disadvantageous and deprived with respect to their economic & social status compared to urban.. So more aspirations & expectations of rural section population from political process-govt compared to self sufficient sections of urban cenntres..So higher interest in political process in rural and alienation in urban centres as they have less expectations from govt & elite class rather affect government policies as pressure/interest groups..

    Pls comment- any addition/deletion??
  • Rural people have more affiliation to caste/religious/community identity due to mech solidarity, so they go to polling booths not to cast their votes, but to vote their caste. Election day is seen as a sort of festival in rural areas, where moneypower and feasts are common during elections, whereas the disenchanted urban middle class sees this day as a leisure break. The community identity is weak and family is the primary unit with little in common with candidates.
  • Valid analysis guys!
  • I look it as ...still the stronghold of traditional family system in the rural villages vis-a-vis greater individualistic life style in urban centres ensures strong family based voting which ensure greater voting in general together with stronghold of caste structure in rural setup leading to identity politics which is further stimulated by the access to fewer mechanism to change their fortune like voting.....

    One more factor which i feel is ..somehow related to my last line...its like this voting for the deprived section of masses who votes in majority in the rural setup is like a self-affirmation of their equality with otherwise over the years dominant caste .

  • @BANE_007 wonderful expln -add my point -

    1. Rural needs are basic and with some bpl schemes benifitting them they get lured by big promises of parties..remember wen adarsh gram yojana picked few villages,they wanted their village as well..simply by tasting dev they want more of it so ..


    2. Participation in electoral process is a sense of pride

    3. Urban stressed in daily lives and does not find any new enthusiasm to encourage them to vote stays at home.remember that how Delhi and other states showed up under India against corruption was igniting new enthu + the promises made do not link directly to midd class /upper class..they feel disenchanted

    Yup last point is spot on. Civil society movements are taking prominence in the urban landscape, the death of ideology has taken place, urban youth has lost its belief in mega theories like socialism, capitalism etc and is more focussed on the issues plaguing the society, like corruption, civic amenities etc which they pursue through party neutral channels.

  • @aman8770 @Hriti I also up for Group disscussion at ORN. I too think that Sociology needs multiple views and conceptual clarity to fetch good marks. Group discussion can surely help...

    Thanks for the heads-up! :)
  • those who have appeared and want to form group in ORN,plz inbox me your number. guess would be much easier to discuss face to face, twice or thrice a week. most probably will form group of 4-5.
  • Hi..it would be great if we make a wats app group and discuss 3 questions daily. Everyone can send their answers and then we can probably make a best answer with sociological perspective. We would be covering both static and contemporary questions. Interested ppl may send their mobile nos so that I make the group. The discussion will run till 30 June 2016.
