Solve PYQs multiple times, get a hold on them, make basic books your best friends. Be aware of the current happening, try to know a bit about them, don’t miss any subject(science, culture) and there you go.

Rushi

HELLO Kartheek ! how was your mains PSIR ? can your mention the other sources you referred like magazines(EPW,World Focus) , answer writing practice apart from these notes? I’m sure these notes must have helped a lot for revision !

Indian political thoughts are not provided here and even in Shubhra Ranjan maams notes I can’t find it. Where do I study it from?

Shubham

Hi, as I mentioned earlier also, these notes are awesome. It’s difficult to read text from Shubhra Ma’am printed notes, so your website makes the task very easy.

I just want to confirm if you have completed digitization of ALL the topics of Paper 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B from Shubhra ma’am notes or do I need to refer the printed notes for any topic you haven’t covered here yet?

Also, I have purchased your e-book from Amazon. Thank you for that also. It is really helpful.

Shubham

Got it. Thanks a lot.

Satya

Sir pls add IR notes. I am dependent on you
