  • I have no prior experience of learning humanities subject, so attended classes of upendra sir for Sociology. Trust me he is a treat to listen to. Just one of the few teachers I have thoroughly enjoyed studying from. You must meet him at least. I have no knowledge about other teachers though.
  • Thanks a ton tao
  • vikas ranjan
  • Is vikas ranjan better than them?
  • Bhai meet all of them if possible. And decide for yourself. If you have to clear this exam you have to develop your discrimination skills and decide for your self. Take advice and help from all but at the end of the day, you have to rely on your wisdom, understanding and judgment. And sooner you develop those skills the better your chances of clearing this exam. Basically we all have a herd mentality we don't think for ourselves. And believe me if you want to clear this exam, develop your own thinking and analytical abilities. And it all starts from which coaching you want to study from to which pen would be better for writing mains to which tie you shall wear for the interview. It all begins with u and shall end with u. And the sooner your realize it the better.
  • True that.Thanks Tao.

    Upendra sir,Mahapatra sir n Mongra sir

    Join Mahapatra/Upendra. It's really difficult to name one out of them.You may decide on the basis of availability of seats,schedule of the batch,your place of stay (Upendra sir teaches at his residence in Safdarjung Enclave).No other option is worth considering for classes in my honest opinion.

  • Is safdargunj enclave near ORN or MKN?
  • I have no idea about delhi..I'm staying in Blore.Will I face trouble in getting a room nearby?
  • Safdarjang enclave is around 12 kms from ORN.students usually come by cab from ORN. Though I resided at a hostel in safdarjang enclave, many other students used to come from ORN by cab. The problem in residing in safdarjang enclave is you cannot take GS coaching. if you plan to stay for a year or so, commuting from ORN would be a better option as all coaching institutes are there as well as book shops. There are no advertisements for his classes, you have to contact him and book your seat at least a month before the batches begin. Rest you talk to him on phone- 011 2610 9740.
  • upendra sir is best though with some limitation.

    m student of feb 2014 batch

    1) no notes making...he will start speaking and bla bla bla.....if u are average student or new to humanities please dont join him
    2) if u would ask him naive question (like i asked once) as i am doc and socio was alien to me...he would give u looks like dont u even know that???
    3) his paper 1 is extra ordinary but paper 2 is not as good as 1st

    u can talk to bhibhas sir and can try 1-2 demo if he allows or try praveen kishore sir(nice ias) ..i would join either of them next year.

    thanks and good luck
    all i need is profound meditation. all i love is my stethoscope

  • @deepdev
    I am a student of mahapatra sir. He teaches really well and makes concepts easier to understand as most of the students are frm non humanity background by connecting things to the contemporary examples. But he doesnt give notes so you basically have to jot down everything he says. And he is execptionally good in paper 2. And ofcourse he teaches in orn.

    And i m from non humanity background and initially i did face some trouble connecting the dots but gradually as the class progress things become easier.

    Goodluck

    I am not from Hansraj.. nor the one with a GF :D The 'annoying guy' is ram nikhil who used to be seated in the last row of left side usually. My usual place used to be very close/next to sir's teaching table
