This post I wanted to clarify one popular query among civil service aspirants.
Importance of reading Hindu editorial for upsc exam.
Once upon a time, when i started my civil services exam preparation back in 2010. I joined Manidhaneyam IAS coaching institute
The faculties in manidhaneyam IAS coaching institute used to said me, “reading Hindu editorial is more beneficial, start read now daily”.
So, I tried my hand on Hindu’s editorial page.
Reading Hindu editorial isn’t easy. if you’re tried one or two times previously, you know that what i’m talking about.
Hindu editorial introduced me many strange vocabularies which i have never read anywhere before. 😟
In short, Hindu editorial is just one of the boring places where i don’t like to stay. 😤
Though the faculities and other IAS officers keep instructing to read Hindu editorials. I just can’t.
I don’t know the purpose of reading Hindu for upsc exam point of view.
After i realized, why i need to read them, then reading hindu editorial became easy for me.
I suggest you, whenever someone said you to do something, then ask them following questions.
- how it beneficial for me.
Unfortunately most of us don’t ask this questions.
Okay, now don’t go to anyone to ask, “Why reading hindu editorial is important for upsc exam preparation?”
Here’s the answer.
In civil services exam, we know, we don’t need to mug up the facts to vomit in the answer sheer.
But we have to tell our opinion in positive way.
The exam contains questions on General issues like women empowerment, poverty, technology, etc.
So, where can you get those opinions on these issues.
We are all coming from different stream of education background. Right?
I was a B.com student when i started upsc preparation, after MBA, and now studying civil law. you may be coming from engineering, medical, Arts, science or whatever stream.
We all have knowledge in a particular field, but not in General issues which are indispensable for upsc exam.
But now we have to learn different things, we have to learn about foreign policies, welfare schemes, Trading with other countries, women development, about enemy countries, budget and a lot.
So, where you can learn all of them. Hindu editorial.
The authors are specialized in their field, by reading them, we can learn them.
If an author write about ‘monetary policy’, probably he would be an economist not a journalist.
So, you’re learning from that economist about that ‘monetary policy’.
So, you can use the author’s points in your answer writing and essay.
Don’t just read. Take notes.
When you take notes, don’t copy and paste the entire articles and call ‘these are notes’.😁
Just take important points which you can use in mains answer writing and essay paper.
In my opinion, things are hard to do if we don’t know the purpose.
Now you have learned the purpose of reading Hindu editorial in IAS exam.
I hope, here after you will not be bored while you read them.
