He mentions this thing about fractured multilateralism which I felt like would be an excellent point to include in answers which is quotable. Also he mentions about India's nuclear policy. I don't think it's something that we can quote him on, but it's still a good general view that we can include in our answers.

Hello everyone,
For daily answer writing and peer reviewing answers of PSIR, a small Telegram group would be convenient. Join up through this link if interested: https://t.me/joinchat/RqJqqhht0UHCf8kO8xBz8w 

Will be deleting the link in a while so as to limit the number of members in the group. 

Thanks@hashtag2020 joined :D

Make this active again please

Should actually have another! Would anyone be doing 1B and want to exchange PYQs the rest of this week?

Does anyone have any idea about a book of model/expected questions for GS2 by Shubhra Ranjan ma’am? Saw mention of it on Megha Arora’s blog, but don’t know if it’s something they do every year.

@whatonly my understanding is hardly anyone does it. Also, you are unlikely find it in pdf, get it from Amazon if you want to.

She said in one her discussion videos that she would not come up with that book this year due to paucity of time.
