For all those who has been watching his DNA, they can easily go through the important stuff that jatin sir might include in his dna.Having followed his news analysis,you must have understood the level of analysis that he does, why don't you take up responsibility for yourself? Download the hindu app or the hindu pdf and make your own notes brother.You should be thankful to someone who has been doing a hell lot of hardwork by providing cutting edge analysis for FREE,instead of complaining in this manner. stop crying like a baby and take responsibility for yourself,jatin Sir's dna should complement to your notes and not to entirely dependent on a single person.Don't spend whole day waiting for a DNA instead create your notes,look for alternative youtube channels to supplement your notes.
