Maths strategy
https://gautamutsav.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/my-maths-strategy/

Another question that I have been asked numerous times on messages is why the name HHH ??
So here is the answer...As a child when I used to watch WWE. I was quite impressed by perseverance of HHH. Most of the time (night of champions, summer slam), he used get a lot of beating but still refuse to tap/accept defeat. So i kept the name HHH.

    dear, it was not about clearing prelims...it was more about writing mains with good preparation. I felt that I had struck in the cycle of Live-Die-Repeat instead of getting time for capacity building.

    So sir you mean one shoukd enter the battle only after being prepared for mains? Means one shoukd be ready with mains preparatiin before attempting prelims that year?
  • I have always believed that ur first attempt should be your best attempt to increase ur chances of eventually clearing this exam as warna cycle mei trap ho jaate h.

    Loads of conratulations,utsav...you made it big bro !! Nice spirit and well written !!

    Congratulations Bro,

    Crossing ur physical, mental anx emotional barrier - you have ascended yourself - in DBS terms- its called Ultra Instinct. UI HHH.

    All d best for ur future endeavors.

    Also u mentioned that - it would hv been easy for u if u hav not believed in big bang/ hawking etc bcoz by that way ur father may be watching u from heaven. When hawkings gave concept of Hawking radiations- he said information is never lost /destroyed in universe - ur memories of ur father is that info - it ll be there and through those memories he is watching u and he is happy too.

    Can u answer few of my queries
    1- You mention - u did strategic mistakes. Please elaborate on those mistakes.
    2- You said - after reading many of topper blog - u knew hohow to crack this exam - but later you realised it was not so. So what changed?

    I really like mentioning of holographic principle by you.

    I would love to :

    few my strategic mistakes were
    1. wasting 4 months in reading 2nd ARC
    2. not practicing answer writing
    3. lack of prepration in Paper II maths in 2015, leading to gigantic 73 marks :smiley:
    4. doing research in astronomy after mains 2016.


    regarding reading toppers blog wala question

    It will be very tiresome to mention every aspect...but in a nut shell ..the things goes like this...every topper has its own strength ...one may be very good in answer writing so she will do it only for 2 months before mains...but if I do it by emulating her, i would have gone bankrupt. so assess your strengths by doing neutral introspection.
  • Bang on!
    A worth story to read and get inspired ! You deserve the very best. _/\_

    Thanks a lot bro. Maybe I was referring to the Astral Projections ( or something like that)

    My follow-up Qs
    1- So instead of reading whole ARC - what is the alternative?

    Yes ur last point is perfect - one must identify their strength and use it efficiently to crack this exam.

    One more thing- you used "her" as 3rd person pronoun - is it something imp for mains as well? Did u incorporate it in ur answers.
  • @HHH sir Congratulations

    I read about astral projection, found it interesting, but i think quantum mechanics, dark energy appeals to me more.

    You can read summary by Sh. Amrutesh Kalidas Sir (AIR 5 ,CSE 2010), I will also upload my brief summary of ARC on my blog.

    about her, I learnt this from Sh. Gaurav Agarwal Sir (AIR 1, 2013), he had used this...in exam i have used him/her everytime or her .

    Indeep QM is very interesting- My Astral Projection concept is different from the spiritual one - it has more to do with QM and String Theory concepts. ( juxtaposing things :) )

    Dark Energy is something I ll read abt more - I love watching PBS Astrophysics on such concepts.

    Thanks a lot bro once again.

    All d best for FC.
