The week that was is a new series of posts that I have been planning to write from a long time, was busy with mains and after realizing many things in the exam hall I came up with this series. This time it’s little more than week.
This series of posts will be linking and providing all important and major sources for UPSC preparation and also for other competitive exams like SSC, IBPS, etc.
Posts will contain Links from newspapers, other sites, Magazines, Spotlight News analysis, videos, PIB and any other sources that will help in preparation. The selection will be completely based on discretion. This is like a guiding light to help you in your preparation.
As said else where we are a group still in preparation so unlike other popular sites we cannot focus our energies on writing articles, but anyone interested can write. The sole purpose being helping other aspirants to the best of our abilities.
Not everyone is able to afford coaching or time, so to save time and money we are running this site, we will try to help through this post and this step in that direction .If you have any suggestions, feedback or interested in helping please drop a line to email@example.com
Also you can follow us on our Facebook Page for daily selected newspaper articles list. (We do hope to post daily)
I did not collect in an orderly fashion so for this week please adjust with my randomness mostly focused on opinion pages of Indian express and Hindu.
