  • Last time, The bench said that the UPSC test for the all-India civil services, is the highest-level exam and candidates taking it are expected to go by the books rather than the views of researchers.
    Hence, we will provide evidences in hard copy during the 1st hearing (the evidences are already provided in typed format but hard copy will ensure that the court will easily recognise that they are standard textbooks.)

    see this link to see what the court said - http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/education/news/supreme-court-dismisses-plea-against-wrong-questions-in-upsc-prelims/articleshow/59860608.cms

  • If any of you have contacts, Please help us accordingly.

    1. contact in Indian Meterological Dept - Need tidal chart for Bhavnagar Port. (Gujarat). We have data from private websites but if we get it from a govt source, it would be very helpful.

    2. contact in national museum, delhi - To get an official document describing the artefact of horse terracotta figurine present there.

    for any clarification on this, Please PM me.

  • People contribute!

    You are buying books worth Rs. 200-400 minimum and spending 1000s on photocopies (not to mention the lakhs that you have spent on coaching and test series). This provides an opportunity to contribute to a sincere effort which might make the selection of our future administrators and policy planners more transparent and effective.

    Understand that every person selected through this exam has a bearing on the life of each and every one of us, even if you don't get selected. The least we can do is to try to assure that their selection process is efficient.

    When you read the news about a Ryan student getting murdered or pollution in Delhi killing people, try to understand that somewhere there is an uninterested and non dedicated civil servant who is responsible (the civil society also is, though). You are a part of that civil society and can contribute via this effort.
  • Imagination is the key to culmination of reality.
    From Einstein to Ramanujan, The great souls have always opined this way.
    In order to manifest something, we need to have firm faith in it.
    This faith leads to right kind of thoughts.
    Thoughts lead to biochemical reactions and ultimately the desired actions.
    Actions manifest things according to our faith.
    Everyone knows this, but we forget it often in the most important of times.
    It's of prime importance that we believe we will win this case.
    Our each cell has to reverberate in the belief of this thought.

    From today, we undertake a resoultion that we will firmly believe that we will win this case and prove that questions were wrong. We will strongly believe in our evidences and we will have full faith in our judiciary.

    Our belief will reflect in our thoughts and actions.

    "Belief is Relief".

    "An equation means nothing to me unless it expresses a thought of God" - An equation was nothing but the thought of ramanujan. It has deep meaning.

    I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right. - Einstein

    Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination takes you everywhere - Einstein

    The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. Einstein

    “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. - Einstein

    We pledge to believe in the truth(Evidences) and We pledge to believe in our victory.

    (kahne ko hai kafi kuch, bas itna hi kahta hu)
  • Transparency should be the prime objective. Upsc is as opaque as black hole, it suck everything but never gives out anything.
