CSE 2022: Plan/ Strategy/ Daily Routine

Some thoughts which occured to me today : Long read, please read at your own discretion. 

1.Understanding and confronting your feelings- I was in a denial all this while . I felt that loosing prelims did not hurt me and its pretty normal. But it is not, I have been into preparation since 3rd year. A 2 year long journey where I have sacrificed many things, which I don't regret as it was my own choice. But somebody yesterday told me you must not be feeling sad unlike all of us because this is your first attempt whereas we all are in our second/third/fourth attempt. All my attempts to forget about my prelims came haunting me back. Feelings confronted me today and I couldn't control it much longer.

An unpredictable paper it was and I would not have worried much if it had gone bad , but I am standing somewhere close to 84-86, the thing that is haunting me is those 5 questions which I did wrong against the wishes of my gut feelings - water, pressure cooker, article 14, one history question and a eastern ghat river question. I am unable to come to terms that this is going to be the reason behind my failure in prelims.

Still I am trying, trying to shift my focus from this exam and the prelims failure and move on. Moving on seems hard at this point but this is the most I can do. 

So to everyone reading this, confront your feelings, don't be in a denial and accept your feelings with open arms. Let this flow, because if you allow feelings to quell up, it would block the veins in your body, your heart and brain would stop working and you will react or over-react to things. In these two days, I got irritated pretty easily, shouted , screamed and cried. The more I tried to forget the more it came back haunting me making my life more difficult. Welcoming it with open arms would have been much easier. 

2. To deviate my mind I watched Criminal Justice ( I know a little late) - One thing that struck me was UPSC chahe jitna bhi unpredictable ho, it actually offers you a lot to work. The situation in prison made me think why prisons are even created? Are they created for the purpose of punishment or for reforming the person? The prison where the guy aditya sharma was kept, was not reforming him but instead it created another monster from humans. The state of our prison is one of the worst in the world, we need urgent reform, for protecting and promoting the basic human rights of people. Unsanitary conditions, constant threat to life , politicisation of prisons and many more things. It just gave me one more reason to continue trying for this exam. Baaki as life would take, kuch nahin toh dhairya ki tarah NGO hi khol legen.  

Your words cut deep, deeper than any blade.

Only did the initial two. Will do economy tomorrow, perhaps. Not the productive day I expected though.

Political non-fictions often catch my imagination. Thought of sharing this with you. Not related to the thread perhaps, but a powerful anecdote.

So manysocio peeps peeps here😮. I smell a golden opportunity. 

How about we solve the pyqs? 5 questions everyday-6 days for one paper(considering 28 questions).

Everyone can pick one year, either Paper-I or Paper II a/c their convenience. This would ensure impartiality and coherence of effort. It won't matter if you have studied the particular topic or not. You can google the answer for all that matters. The goal is to have a skeleton of points. No need for coherence in format of answers either-It can be pen-paper or one-note or power point for all I care. I can do the extra heavy-lifting to bring the coherence. 

We can also do resource-sharing, discussion or anything socio-related. This will hopefully help us a lot with mains in the coming months as we can later peer review etc 😤

We can develop more rules of the game as we go along but बस काम होना चाहिये।

Will make a telegram group for further conversation so we don't hog this space. DM for the link.
