    n also tell ppl not to say thanks or bakar n make nested comments wd deleting irrelevant stuff (my apologies for this post) so that all related things are at smae place n we can link better.

    PS: just an opinion as m not good wid current n don't read newspaper so it will help me the most :D
    In order to survive,we cling to all we know & understand.And we label it reality.
    But knowledge & understanding are ambiguous.That reality could be an illusion. All humans live with the wrong assumptions.
    Isn't that another way of looking at it???

    People should not list out everything under the sun. This exhaustive approach is unsustainable and unworkable in 90 days. Restrict the list to 6 importantest themes only. Because despite however well you prepare IR, it will only have 4 questions on 4 themes.

    6 themes from 10 different perspectives, with valid supporting reason, will present enough diversity.

  • Any body with management optional???
  • current affairs is a part of GS Papers 2 and 3 :
    these papers are getting lowest scores among all the GS , Essay and Optional Papers.
    anything near to 90 in GS 2 & 3 is considered to a good score.
    ...
    hence one should not give too much time to these two papers and focus on rest of the papers.
    the area of current affairs is vast, if one can do all the Insight - Secure compilation questions form Jan 2015 to Nov 2015 - then he/she should be able to score 90 marks in these two papers (provided that he/she has done sufficient answer writing also)
    ....
