Sir Hindu summary video k bad newspaper pdhne ki jrurat h kya
thnku u so much sir..praiseworthy efforts nd teaching style ..
Welcome back sir!! Congrats on your sister's wedding!!
Finally.. You are back sir :).. Felt a huge vacuum in preparation... Lets get started with a bang :)
Sir, This is something I wanted to suggest you about. Suppose some 2-3 days are pending for editorial analysis, obviously it takes time to make powerpoint for editorial unlike daily summary, what you can consider is preparing and uploading the current day's editorial analysis, and then you can upload the pending one as soon as you get time...... if you find this approach right. Regards
Welcome back ! On days when you aren't able to upload the videos you may try two alternatives - Extreme Time Crunch - Upload just the list of Articles to be covered /// Moderate Time Crunch - Upload just the slides with summaries without the commentry. Though, I know we're asking for too much. The day feels incomplete without you videos.

  5. MINT: WOMEN IN AN UNORTHODOX DEMOCRACY Gs-1 Voting percentage for women have increased in ongoing assembly polls but their participation as candidates and the possibilities of their victory are shamefully low o Irom Sharmila and Najima Bibi-) are living proof of the perversities ( unjustified, unreasonableness) of Indian society. (People's Resurgence And Justice Alliance, to fight elections in Manipur) 1rom and Najima's struggle is also extraordinary because they've both decided to follow their own beliefs. Whether they win or lose, the example that they have set with their dignified struggle will keep inspiring young people for a long time o People who supported her in her fight against AFSPA are now up against her because she decided to fight elections! Data doesn't lie According to data collected by, the number of women candidates went up in 2012 but 85% of them lost their deposit. In reserved seats, this number was relatively less disappointing, but it was still abysmal because just 79.8% women could hold on to their deposit. Just 7.1% women won from reserved seats and in non-reserved seats, just 4.7% women emerged victorious. Repeated undermining of the role of Women in Indian polities Repeated undermining of the role of Women in Indian politics Most of the 'winnable' women candidates come from political families. In many villages of Uttar Pradesh, where women are village panchayat chiefs, their husbands introduce themselves as 'pradhan pati' (husband of the panchayat chief). These are men who could not contest on their own owing to women's reservation, but fielded their wives instead betrayal of democracy

  6. MINT: WOMEN IN AN UNORTHODOX DEMOCRACY Gs-1 Shining examples from the past State of Uttar Pradesh The country's first woman chief minister was Sucheta Kriplani in UP. She presided over the largest state in the country from 1963 to 1967. She was married to Acharya J.B. Kriplani. Kriplani was an opponent of the Congress and his wife was the chief minister from the same party. What can be a better example of democracy within a family? The same state also gave us Indira Gandhi, the only woman prime minister of the country so far. This is the state from where Congress national president Sonia Gandhi has been elected to Parliament. Mayawati, one of the leading contenders in these assembly elections, has many records to her name. Not only was she the first Dalit chief minister, she has also set a record by becoming chief minister four times. he was married to Acharya J.B. Kriplani. Maybe,weave toget iato Bic hahi f setineo) Maybe, we have to get into the habit of setting new records. It's high time, women got their due in electoral politics and our democracy. (Even Pakistan has a better ratio of female legislators than India!) Link- Women's reservation bill in Parliament

  7. TH: SPEAK IN OUR OWN VOICE GS-2 Why India must keep charge of its bilateral engagement with its largest neighbor Background- In mid-January, a week before he resigned as US Ambassador to India, Richard Verma held an unusual dinner at his residence, inviting the Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju as well as the Sikyong, or Leader of the Tibetan 'Government in Exile' ( Tibet-> sticking point for China :P) What's more, the dinner follows a series of interventions by American officials on India-China issues in the past few months. o Series of voices in favouring India against China 1. Verma made waves by becoming the first U.S. envoy to visit Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh in October 2016, the visit drew a 2. His visit followed comments by US. Consul General Craig Hall, during a visit to Arunachal, referring to the State as an 3. USCIRF commissioner attended a conference in Dharamsala for Chinese dissidents, including Tibetans, Uighurs and Falun . Thomas Shannon, then US. Undersecretary of State, visited New Delhi, warning that China's actions in the South China sharp response from the Chinese Foreign Ministry about "third parties" interfering "integral part of India" Gong activists Sea were madness" and its next target" was the Indian Ocean

  8. o But Perception is getting built-> that India is allowing, possibly even encouraging, the U.S. to be its voice on what are essentially bilateral issues between India and China. At a time when India and China have had major differences over a series of issues, allowing an external voice into this bilateral equation can only drown out India's own (India has always stood against other country's interference in bilateral relations- so is India reversing its stand now?) Not only US, but Australian and Japanese experts as well as Indian think tanks are increasingly articulating the need for their trilateral with India to go further, calling for a strategic middle power coalition" o But this could backfire India 1. First, India is not, nor is it likely to be a treaty ally of the U.S., as Australia and Japan are 2. Second, such a coalition would necessarily be considered a front to counter Chinese maritime hegemony 3. While Indian naval presence would boost efforts to police the South China Sea, the other members of this coalition would hardly be able to help India on its most prominent frontier with China, the unresolved Line of Actual Control 4. In short, to allow these so-called middle powers to speak for India is a mistake equal to that of allowing any big power to do the same

  9. TH: SPEAK IN OUR OWN VOICE Gs-2 o India- China three-and-a-half fronts. Disputed border Disputed territory No defined boundary Aksai Chin Adminstered by China Kashmir by Pakistan CHINA Kashmir Adminstered by india Tibet Autonomous Region Chinese maps label this area as "South Tibet" Lhasa RADIAN SEA New Delhi .. Sikkim Tawang IND NEPAL BENGAL INDIA BHUTAN elant 100 km MYANMAR 100 miles Source:Central Inteligence Agency (CIA NDIAN

  10. Silverlinings o Despite the lows of the past year, including the impasse where India singled out China as the "one country" inhibiting its progress into the Nuclear Suppliers Group, New Delhi and Beijing have kept their bilateral engagement steady o As Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar heads to Beijing this week for the newly created Strategic Dialogue, it would be hoped that relations will be brought to an even more steady bilateral keel, especially as India charts its course in the foreign policy-scape rocked by the uncertainties of the new U.S. Presidency It would do well by following the Gandhian principle that "true power speaks softly, and has no reason to shout", Nor does it need to employ the voice of others, or use frivolous pinpricks when serious issues are at hand
