    plus, agar opinion chahiye to contact trustworthy people. ajkal forum pe kaafi fake accounts bante hain, xyz teacher ko promote karne ke liye.

    u r right bro he has attitude problem,but his knowledge about geography is good in paper1 physical .
  • Sharad Mani Thakur Sir for Geography Optional. I have done optional from him He is not just Geography Teacher but a UPSC teacher itself. I would not praise him here but I would surely say that you can come to his classes in between on any day for a trial He has no formal system of collecting money or a very big institution but He teaches wonderfully. Even his Students Gurleen Malik and Pulkit Garg have given seminar in the optional Classes. I had in my batch students of Shabbir Sir, Neet Ma'am Siddharth Sir too and these students were old GS Students of Sharad SIr who did Optional from these teachers but later did again for Sharad SIr.

    He doesn't have any formal system or advertising system so He announces his classes on his Facebook- fb.com/sharad.thakur.7 or u can contact him on phone too- +917042156131

    Ps- I am not here to promote anyone or defame anyine, I am a genuine student still completing my course module wise and I want to just tell the Students that Sharad Sir is a wonderful teacher So before going to any other Optional Class please attend his trial classes from any day u want to. This is my genuine opinion.

  • Majid Hussain. Bit old fashioned, but helpful.
  • i might be the only one, but i do not like shabbir sir's ONE SIZE FITS ALL approach. He constantly nudges you to do stuff (which is good if you can do it), but can become difficult if one is in college or job. Then he starts discriminating students on the basis of performance in his "stuff"(which is kind of sad and demotivating).
    Other than that, he is a fine teacher with good conceptual clarity in "most" areas.

    That will be there brother. You are not the only one. There were people in my Geo Optional Batch at Sharad Sir's coaching who told us the same and even worse. I have heard that Shabbir Sir doesnt teach the whole syllabus too.

    I have done Optional from Sharad Mani Thakur Sir in Old Rajinder Nagar. So far I have not found anyone better than him for Geography Optional or even Geography GS no one comes even close to him in Geography. He solves the previous year question papers of UPSC in the class itself and dictates standard answers. Everything is in the class itself there is no printed material and diversionary tactics. Whatever is the doubt it is clarified in the class itself. Whole Syllabus is covered in front of you in fact you have to bring the syllabus and Previous Year questions in the class itself. Revising the course is free you can revise some section which you didnt understood or the full syallbus too..
    I have attached 2016 Question's answers please see them. They have been dictated in the class.

  • Sharad Mani Thakur Sir for Geography Optional. My class mate has already uploaded the notes from the class. You will not get a better experience than his classes.
    Teaching is very good.
    Everything is covered int he class itself, even the previous years questions are dictated in the class for both GS and Optional. You can bring any question in the class from any other test series on which you want to have any standard answers He will dictate in the class only.
    On other teachers I have only seen their notes and Not attended their classes as there is no trials available at other institutes But in Sharad Sir's classes He never takes a single rupee before the class. You can attend the classes for a few days or weeks and then Pay the fees. Also fees is less for this standard of teaching both for GS and OPtiona, fees is very less.

    These things instead of advertisement creates a wrong image of the teacher

    Sharad Mani Thakur Sir covers whole syllabus of Paper 2 in the class itself along with previous year papers being discussed in the class itself.
  • can anyone suggest me a book for geographical thoughts? I didnt find Majid Hussain's book interesting.
  • Sharad sir is really a good teacher for Geography Optional as well as Geography GS,, . He is much better than
    Any other teachers of Geography in ORN,, infact I have done Geography from vajiram also that's why I'm saying this. He teaches with diagrams and flow charts which makes it easy to understand . And do not understand how people can teach a subject like Geography through pen drive course.
