One of my seniors responded to one of my messages as :  "Yes we are going to do that. One day lo cheptham. "

I have absolutely no clue what the last sentence means. My senior is from South India.. Can anyone tell me what it means ?

Schedule followed diligently till 6 pm, after which I had a panic attack. 
Couldn't do answer writing..
I guess it will take a little bit more of perseverance to get into complete mains mode. 
Satisfied overall with the quality of study..
Meanwhile, installed YPT app again on my phone. It is so nice to see a lot of people there now.  I'll be using the app again from tomorrow. 

P.s: I saw the documentary "House of Secrets- The Burari Deaths" on Netflix, day before yesterday. I never thought I would say this, but I highly recommend you guys to watch it.. It is quite intense with all the original clippings, but has way too many layers than just a 'mass suicide'..   Highly recommend

I have done all the relevant NCERTs for Geography, prepared it with the Atlas and the works, what do y'll think about GC Leong? Should it be taken up too? I'm a little on the fence regarding this, considering Geography is relatively less important especially for the Prelims

Keep revising ncerts... Rather than going for gc leong, if you have time and you want to study some more, maybe u can try reading class 9 and 10th ncert..  And if you really want to read gc leong, then don't read it cover to cover.. You can use it for topics that are difficult to understand from ncert.. 

After u feel u have revised enough.. Solve pyqs.. See if you were able to solve the questions or not.

I'm usually reasonably productive, but today evening - I was struck with a bout of loneliness. I tried distracting myself to get done with the day's readings, but I couldn't. 

How do you guys deal with it?

It is okay to have bouts of loneliness every now and then.. I just hope it is not a recurring feeling that is making you very sad..
Sometimes it is okay to pause and do other things that you like to do.. Treat yourself for all the times you had been productive.. dont force urself to study in such times.. The harder you will try, the more difficult you will find it ...
Go with the flow.. If you are preparing for 2022, you still have time to devote on 'self love and self care'.. do that.. and dont feel guilty about it..

At this rate, I'll not be surprised if we have a prelims test series with 120 tests named '12000 steps' few years down the line!

@HeNeArKr would 10/10 subscribe

Is there one?

Hope Forum comes out with one....Until then I am on my own :(

Hi, jerngal 
HRU?
can u plz suggest any good u tube channel for anthropological theories & for fossils?


I am not aware of any channel for anthropological theories.. 
For fossils there are videos of DK Bhattacharya (around 30).. you may watch them.. They are sort of an explanation of the Ignou notes related to the same topics... Watch the videos along with the ignou/epg pathshala material.. otherwise you might find it difficult to understand the videos.

Those who are writing sfg or planning to go for it or have done in past. How do they manage test series along with it. 

I dont do any other test series other than SFG..

I did give 3 open mocks from 3 different institutes but did not really find them helpful for me per se..

However, I did solve PYQS from 2000 onwards.. 3-4 times... 

SFG already covers a good enough portion and I personally don't think there is a need to join a separate test series just for the sake of it.. 
You may agree to disagree..
