Book recommendation for history buffs: Nehru & Bose: Parallel lives by Rudrangshu mukherjee

well researched, lucid narrative, and easy to read. Traces the political life of two giants of national movement and demolishes a number of politically motivated narratives of this century.

Have already read GGS really liked it a lot and already downloaded China Challenge. I like IR and history related stuff

Although there's a plethora of suggestions already, I still wanted to pitch in some more considering that I read from both of these genres primarily as well. You might have read some of these, but l hope you find something new and fun. 

Here it goes: 

  1. The Revenge of Geography: Robert Kaplan 
  2. Great Game East (Myanmar-India-China): Bertil Lintner 
  3. My Enemy's Enemy (Afghanistan-India-Pakistan): Avinash Paliwal 
  4. Choices: SSS Menon 
  5. The India Way: S Jaishankar 
  6. Land of Seven Rivers: S Sanyal 

Have read the last 3 a long time ago and have been meaning to check out revenge of geography for a while now. Thanks for reminding me about this book 😅

I intend to give it. last year closely missed pre due to shocker of a quant and reasoning. The new pattern seems perfect for cse guys with subjective qsns and ethics etc included in the paper

Yes. Comparatively, SEBI is far tougher, different, and needs a very specific demand. In a constant dilemma because of that, whether to proceed with the prep or not.

Am I the only one who has forgotten what exactly I wrote in the exam? There are very few questions that I can recall very clearly. For mostly I only have a rough idea while a few I am completely blank.
