Well, UPSC Mains is finally over! For some of you the exam went as you had planned. For others, you knew a couple of questions, but could not attempt it due to paucity of time. Some had to struggle with health issues. Given the subjective nature of this exam, the final outcome would depend on a range of factors – internal and external.
Whether you get a chance to appear in interview this year or not, you can consider reading these books before jumping into full-on preparation. A close observation of the entire UPSC examination process reveals that every stage (Prelims, Mains, Interview) is a test of personality. These books would help align the personality and thought process with the expectations of the exam. Lastly, reading these books keeping with a deadline in mind would help improve reading speed – a must for IAS aspirants who need to scan scores of pages everyday.
In short, this book is recommended to anyone who is generally curious about early and medieval Indian history, a relatively brief introduction for the intelligent non-expert.
Is the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) still the most appropriate institution to govern twenty-first-century India? Should a cadre of generalists head organizations as complex and diverse as industrial units; museums and rural development boards?
M.K.Kaw (the author) is a retired IAS officer who has been there, done that. He gives a promising preview that entertains as much as it informs in this cheeky book that is sure to be lapped up by all bureaucracy members.
These books may not be of much academic significance in UPSC exam, however, the current pattern is not all about academics. Reading such books are likely to have a number of latent advantages.
