Hi anyone here preparing for UPSC 2018 and interested in making notes from The Hindu on daily basis,
I need a few (max 5 approx) aspirants to share notes from daily news paper on mutual basis.
Replacing newspaper with Monthly compilation is helpful only to some extent. We dont get quotes or some facts that useful for intro or conclusion.
Also for individual taking notes of the entire newspaper may take more time. Its difficult to manage daily.
To maintain balance between these two we can form group and share quality notes on daily basis.
Idea is like
Sharing notes from different sections of the Hindu news paper
eg Editorial one person who comfortable with ed,
International pages one person who interested in IR,
Economy section with person interested in that,
National news front page with person interested in that
(I am comfortable for any section remaining)
Another idea is sharing notes from The Hindu with notes from any other sources like Indian Express or Livemint or PIB. (Many recommend Livemint now)
Its should not be a copy paste from other places (unless itself v.good in nature)
Unnecessary portion of the news should be removed - Notes should be useful for Prelims and Mains point of view
Background of the issue should be added
Attempt to link with static portion, our basic sources is good.
It's strictly on mutual basis among members around 5, as long as one share their section notes, they ll get other sections notes also.
Only sincere aspirants who are comfortable in taking notes on regular basis.
If someone notes are not upto the standard, either we try to improve with inputs or move with other person if that not works (Time is precious, sometime for newcomers may take time to understand and realise the requirements of upsc)
Lets make form a group and decide finer details.
