Kuchh smy baad mai start karunga.
Thank you very much ma’am. Ma’am I was like a wondering bark searching for lighthouse and fortunately I signed in my Unacademy account, found that you have made almost full course on philosophy optional. Ma’am you are humbly requested to make a full course on Socio-Political philosophy of UPSC optional. Ma’am although I am a Hindi medium aspirant of UPSC CSE but videos are equally important for me. Ma’am you are like ‘ doobte ko tinke ka sahara’. Thanks ma’am.
