sir I want to ask you one question out of this topic. plz help me by giving me genuine opinion. I wanted to listen you as I m writing you first time and I hv so much of faith in you. sir I m from jammu and a married lady of 31 years old. I always wanted to crack this exam but due to financial problem and lack of guidance I never thought of even preparing it. now this year I started preparing but rumors erupted of reducing age bar. sir fr us there is 37yrs of eligibility but do you think it's not worth of preparing at this stage of my lyf. sir I wanted to prepare fr nxt whole year but don't you think with 31 of age it's not quite good decision to prepare due to age relaxation criteria may be going to change within a year. plz help me sir. I genuinely want to become a civil servant no matter what comes in my way except age problem.

sonam Sharma , don't worry about age bcuz even if there is a change next year upsc will give relaxation period to the persons like u. n u r not alone in the country who is going to prepare for this exam at this age. there r lot of other people too. so instead of worrying about the age n all. give ur complete focus on the exam n u can crack it if u will b diligent for next 1 n half years. all the best.

Yes, it is, but there is a difference because when we refer with respect to latitudes then it resides in the Northen hemisphere and when we refer with respect to longitude then it resides in the Eastern hemisphere. I hope you got your answer. Thanks.

Yes. I too think Chetan is right. You should add East hemisphere also. Else leaner will not have any idea of the west east hemisphere concept. Also if you an add photos in your slides (like when we say of northern hemisphere or showing time meridian of india) it will be of great help!
Thanks a lot for preparing these videos. Kindly continue and complete the entire Geography syllabus for CHSL. Also, I had a doubt. Which is the highest waterfall in India?
