    12. Do you think the present collapse of the Indian Rupee will be reverse in the near future? Depends

  4. I strongly believe the changes that are being attempted in the service/cadre policy of civil services are just another example of a so called "Reform" that would do only harm and no good. It is all too subjective and opaque. It will only deteriorate an institutional setup which has been largely good over the course of many decades. Modernisation of the civil services setup may be needed to meet the needs of 21st century India but the way this govt is operating it will only bring more corruption and discretion rather than institutions. And yes of course– unrest among thousands of genuine aspirants who desire to get into the services. We seem to be completely heading for unstable and uncertain policy framework in all major institutions.
    The push towards lateral entry into the civil services is also a development on similar lines. The present government needs to understand that if an institution stands the test of time for such a long time, it has some inherent positives. Else, it would have collapsed under its own contradictions. These also may need some tinkering periodically to suit the present world but turning them upside down without a certain long term vision would do absolutely no good.

  5. Sir can u give another discription for whatsapp…so we can share your daily video from that discription with our study circle whatsapp group..and we can invite other friends from whtsapp from that discription

  7. Oxymoron is type of figure of speech in which same word gives two different meanings.
    It is also known as yamak alankar in Hindi.
    For eg- " kali ghata ka ghamand ghata".
    In the above line ghata ko do bar use kiya gaya h ek baar ghata ka matlab Badal se h aur dusri baar ghata ka matlab ghatna(decrease) se h.

  8. The Village declared itself "An independent republic" may be because of the injustice done with their people by not providing amenities which they had right to, like electricity, education, medical services, employment , safe drinking water and infrastructure. And may also have exploited by police, and other government bodies just like tribes which become naxalites due to the ill behavior done by police.

  9. क़ानून और वकील तो ज़मीन और संपत्ति के बारे में जानते हैं,
    उन्हें क्या पता कि,
    पेड़ों पर पत्ते क्यों आते हैं,
    समुद्र में लहरें क्यों मचलती है,
    मधुमक्खियां शहद क्यों बनाती है,
    घोड़ों के घुटने इतने मुलायम क्यों है,
    सर्दी क्यों आती है और नदियां क्यों जम जाते हैं,
    आस्था दुनियावी चीजों से परे क्यों है,
    और उम्मीद की बीमारी जाती क्यों नहीं
    और परोपकार से बड़ा कुछ नहीं,
    वो ये नहीं समझते.
