2. Don't join the same library which your friends have joined

3. Chhai and coffee k jagah, if possible have fruits and juices.

4. if one can, stay away from any relationship.

Joined a popular library around the metro station at ORN, it reminds me of college lol.

So many hanging around and offering advice even if not asked for and trying to build a conversation in name of literally anything. Till now I was aloof to the world in UPSC world that exists here and now I can say there’s lot that goes here. 

Not to do - seek for friendships or relationship around, try to please people who won’t matter in few days, find a group to study especially with prelims around and lastly, not be tempted by the material the other person is reading.

Avoid unnecessary discussions on what coaching is good, you’ll end up regretting any decision you have made. Also, just like the world, everyone has a fair share of idea to advise about and suggest what others should do. Perhaps you’ll get a all suggestions you need to clear the exam from the bookseller around here too. You’ll g

Don't take advise from just anybody be it ORN or Telegram expert groups or channels. This has massive repercussions. It can ruin 1-2 years of preparation for just anybody. If you want to know how to clear prelims, Talk only to those who actually clear prelims. If you want to know how to clear mains, talk to Only those who have scored well.

Seek support from mentors (and NOT subject experts or outdated teachers) who givepractical advise and shut yourself from unsolicited gyaan.


Otherwise the content terrorists(in the words of Dipin sir -  Btw one can learn from him  practical way of notes making for Mains) by advising new aspirants to read Yojana, Kurukshetra or Bipin Chandra for post independence can unnecessarily complicate life

1. Don't ignore your mental health.. ORN is a maze.. One can easily get intimidated here. .. Don't keep your emotions bottled up... Share with people who genuinely care about you.. 

2. Don't ignore signs of physical health concerns.. I know someone who kept procrastinating seeing a doctor till the time the issue got way too serious and eventually led to the person skipping the attempt.

3. Don't pay heed to FOMO.. Don't become a hoarder of material/test series.. Have faith on the sources you have.

I have spent 7 months in Mukherjee Nagar

My observations

1.Keep away from chatting in Tea stalls. Can suck 2 hours of your daily routine.

2.Attend classes if you have joined one. No point staying in ORN and bunking classes. It will keep your momentum going.

3.Don't get intimated by the crowd. There will be some 5 percent of the class who are regularly coming to tests and scoring decent. These are the competition.

4. Talk to parents/siblings/dear ones everyday even if it is for a few minutes. It can do wonders.

5. During harsh summers think about buying a room cooler rather than saving money. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish.

Life at orn is quite difficult. 

Only 5–10% of the candidates in the ORN area are serious aspirants.

Chai par charcha. 🤘

Don’t cut your mother’s call. Everything else can wait, but her call should not.

Having said that, when I was myself there, I told Mother to call after dinner as I am busy the other time. Such a bad thing I would ever mean in life : (

Idk why tea breaks are so much looked down upon. When you're surrounded by 4 walls since morning, your body does need some 30-40mins break to relax and talk to people. Not sure what kind of 'chai par charcha' people are talking about but during my previous and current stay at ORN, this has been my perfect break and tbh it does improve the efficiency.

I agree with you 100% .. 
It depends on person to person.. Every break can be either used judiciously to recharge oneself or can take one on a never ending break spree.. 
It is in our hands how we see these breaks and plan our schedule around them..

How many tea breaks do you take per day?

i am glad somebody said this. the taboo related to tea breaks 

I usually have a fixed time of tea break at 5. I try to ask a friend of mine to come along if they are free. This is not to do with tea but more to do with relaxing my body and get out of the four walls.

Further, some days i go out for an unplanned tea break when i am unable to concentrate. 

Lastly, if i am too sleepy and start yawning more so in morning sessions i just run out get a tea packed and get it to my desk. 

These are the three types of tea breaks i usually have.

I learnt something unrelated to exam- Don't carry your valuables in hand while waiting/commuting in this area.

-One fine morningI was walking to Forum for the test, saw a guy talking over phone near Drishti building. Two guys on a scooty appeared from behind, snatched the phone and sped up. Gyan mil gya.

This holds true for any place in Delhi and not just in ORN.. I had a similar experience few years ago.. Luckily the guys on the scooty were unable to snatch my phone.. Lesson learnt for life.

Completely agreed. I've kept almost an hour every evening just to get out of my flat and have tea/walk or anything. Just don't be in your room. 


Also, to cure your sleepiness you can try tea bags to prevent yourself going out frequently.
