Punjab as home state for interview.

Please provide sources to refer to.
How to prepare for
1. the recent elections
2. The drug problem
3. Agri problems of Punjab
4. Poor Industrial growth
Though all these are extremely relevant topics for interview but from where to prepare on these topics?
Sadda Punjab is one of the sources but it contains only the static portions.

Would Punjab as home state also require preparation on Chandigarh, Haryana?

  • Punjabi guys gather here
  • I think people will join after results
  • Bhai mera b Punjab aa

    Why wait for the results. Any discussion here would anyways be helpful, whether it is for Mains 2016 or next Mains or even for the PCS.

    Whether the result is positive or not, does not matter, one would, someday (hopefully), have to be a part of this discussion. So let's have it now rather than delaying it.
  • Bhai kine Lok aa Es bar punjabi lit bale any idea
  • Frm punjab..waitin fr result
  • Sadda Punjab is good for static material like info about all districts, famous industries in these districts, history of Punjab, culture of Punjab, history of Sikhism, various PB Govt schemes (like Aata Dal Scheme etc). But it does not talk about the dynamic and current topics like, drugs problem, elections in Punjab, agricultural stagnancy, border issues, SYL issue.
    Unless someone has been making notes on these issues from newspapers (that too a Punjab local newspaper preferably) it would be difficult to answer any questions on these topics. And while people might know about topics like the SYL issue that understanding would be from a general perspective and not from a specific PB POV. From where can one get a compiled info about all current issues of PB of the last one year (just like the monthly CA booklets of Vision)?
  • i don't know from where we can get all the current part, i too have read sadder punjab.i am trying to compile articles about drug problem. sex ratio, agriculture stagnation from the newspaper clippings i have.
  • do any coaching in chandigarh provide such compilations ?
  • or we guys can work together, by listing topics we think are important and everyone can contribute . i have some newspaper clippings but that is not sufficient

    1. Punjab elections - 'Jatinder Pannu' analysis on youtube.
    2.Drug problem - 'Baltej Pannu - drug problem' on youtube.
    3.Agri-problem- Not to be seen in isolation from rest of India. Good analysis on devinder-sharma.blogspot.in/
    4.Industrial gowth issues- Google.

    For historical dimension/aspects, Haryana,Himachal and Chandigarh also to be covered, in required manner.
    An excellent resource on Punjab issues is EPW.
    Also check Economic survey by Punjab Govt.

    Jatinder and Baltej Pannu both have hundreds of videos in their YT channels and they are titled date wise (not on the topic of discussion). Are their any specific videos on their channel that discuss drugs and election issues?

    The grain will come with chaff, since the issue-based analysis wrt. journalism in Punjab is virtually non-existent.
