# TIL 27/7 CA

getting kids back to school(concept of learning loss and case study of UP, i highly recommend @yest IE Explained); non personal data regulation committee (new thing i learned about the sensitive non personal data and recos for it by the committee); few things about floods in general by examples of assam and bihar

;

contempt of court(somehow i feel ki supreme court ki working pe upsc questions nahi puchegi thoda controversial ho jata hai, issues like contempt of court, pendency, ethics of court, etc; if anyone can show past questions examples to refute my thinking i'll be very grateful)

@Agog hello there. I guess, YES. Actually, I like the teaching style of Pratik Sir. He covered good part of the art and culture of medieval also in his lectures. In the first 2 lectures, you might feel everything is going overhead but after that, U gonna enjoy the Medieval history.

Guys can you suggest me some good youtube channels like rstv , orf , etc which have debates or analysis of issues relevant for upsc ! (Not coaching waalas like byju)
Even the channels of individual intellectuals will work like that of faizan mustafa.

Apart from rstv and orf, you can watch some programs of The Print such as

  1. #Daily5
  2. Cut the Clutter
  3. National interest
  4. Pure Science
  5. Know your constitution
  6. Ilanomics

i used to follow faizan sir channel, but he take political cases that are in limelight. mostly controversial so little chance of comming in exam.

mere lie toh hindu and IE gets so heavy that i'm not watching any of the above.
however if some judgment comes and it looks interesting, i follow the blog of gautam bhatia. I dont have law optional so i just skim through his points

Indian Constitutional Law and Philosophy

Woke up at 4:30. 

5:00- 7:20-> Optional (Cheating, Receipt of Stolen Property, some revision)

Cut short my study session (supposedly till 8 am) because it was raining and my balcony looked like this->

7:20-8:45 -> Practiced the song "Ocean" by Anuv Jain on the ukulele while it poured. 

8:45-9:00-> Meditation

9:00-10:00-> Video called my love and sang her the song/ conversations about life

10:00- 12:30-> Had a heavy meal, read a few articles on livelaw, indconlawphil, and then started reading a book called "Meaning of Life and Death"

12:30-14:00-> Slept. Oh so peacefully. 

14:30- 17:00-> Read a bit of optional. Got distracted quite often. I blame the weather. Spoke to my optional coaching peeps. 

17:00- 18:00-> Lay down next to Amma and laughed about life. 

18:00- now-> Black Coffee and its still raining. 

Plan on finishing up my optional quota for the day. Then, I'll maybe read a few articles on the internet and sleep. Will try and study more tomorrow. 

Review: Probably not the most productive of days in terms of study, but boy, what a joy it is to be alive. :)

Haha I've come to realize that the exam is no reason to stop living. If it works, it works. If it doesn't, well, I'll move on with no regrets. It's just an exam.
