[week1] [NEW] 12-19 dec.'12. Weekly Download "The Hindu Editorials" PDF

edited December 2012 in Current Affairs
As we already know that The Hindu editorials are of immense importance as far as UPSC exam is concerned.
The Hindu Editorials help us to expand the horizons of our thinking capabilities and develop our innate quality of logical interpretation along with the generalisation skills.
Also, I learned that many IAS aspirants needed The Hindu editorials in the PDF format so that they can download it in their devices for offline reading. But the glitch was that it was not available in PDF. But not anymore !!!!
I have brought a solution for it.
Here I will post the download links of all the "The Hindu" editorials PDF created by me on the weekly basis. No hassles anymore. ;-) You just need to click once and get the whole week's editorials content downloaded as-it-is.
No need to browse the editorials daily. Once-in-a-week download will save much of your time and energy.

  • @sheen , First of all I would like to thank you for making this effort.

    As someone who has been around here for long, I will just give you a heads up about the articles we need to do and those we need to ignore from exam point of view.

    Doors make buses safer -> Good: Gives you some idea of public commutation safety

    In and out before you know it -> Not required. More politics than academics

    The price of compromise -> Not required

    End of the road for BJP in Karnataka -> Not required

    Sheltering the urban poor -> Excellent+ Essential Read

    Look out for the overseas worker -> Good and informative

    Ageing with dignity -> Good and informative

    Muddy waters, made muddier -> Not relevant again

    Letting Mali slide -> Required

    America’s gun madness -> Not for mains + Required for PI

    Standstill policy -> Required


    Note that when I say Not Required, It means not relevant ONLY from exam point of view. This is also not criticism, but only a pointer on how we can make our filtering and selection criterion better, something that we learn only after 2-3 attempts at UPSC.

    @Neyawn

    Yes. I totally agree with you,sir.
    I don't feel criticized at all. Infact, I consider myself lucky to get your genuine advice. It was really helpful. Thanks a lot.
  • @sheen I am glad it was well taken :-)

  • @sheen

  • Anyone interested in activating this thread and going on till mains 2013. It would be of gr8 help if people can consolidate editorials of not only 'Hindu' But 'Indian Express' as well.

    The quality of IE editorials has improved with Sanjay Baru, Sorabjee and others writing often

  • @LuV It means the project has been abandoned.

    @Thor Good thing with IE is that one can download it in PDF format. Just save the required pages and compile a list/index to ensure easy access to required editorial in the future.
  • @Luv @Thor @AragornTheKing
    Guys, I had computer system with me when I started that little project.
    Then my laptop got damaged. I do not have any computer with me now. It is difficult to maintain a website with a mobile phone. GUI does not work upto the mark. So, that site has been made defunct.
    Sorry friends.
  • Oh !!!
    Anyways it was a nice initiative on your part.
    ;-)
