      yeah sure. purposefully missed many points to stick on to word limit . thank you so much 🙂

    • Profile photo of meera j meera j @meera-j

      the bullet points and conculsion good.intro kurachu needu poyi.

    • Profile photo of meera j meera j @meera-j

      Ok. Wanted to write on nadanpatt generic part ,before particulary going to vadakanpaatt part.

    • Profile photo of Parvathy Parvathy @parvathy2490

      I think in introduction (being bit long, but not an issue) first paragraph you can mention something about vadakkanpattu(which shows ‘vadakkanpattu’ is the core) Points along with their examples is a good approach(sahithyaparamaya prathyekathakal).
      Good answer

    • Profile photo of meera j meera j @meera-j

      Yes,you are right. I have serious issues with introduction 🙂 in all papers, GS included.

      As Parvathy said, one or two lines shall be included.
      ‘sahithyam’ ennu parayumbo kurachu koodi aa perspective il ulla karyangal vende ?
      I am a bit confused about the question.

    • Profile photo of Mishab Muhammed Mishab Muhammed @mohdmishab

      Yes . “Sahityam” aanu kooduthal focus cheyyendath.
      I have less knowledge about those facts , that is why more general characteristics came into my answer.
      Will try to learn more from your answer and make the answer more specific.
      Thanks for the review

    • Profile photo of Parvathy Parvathy @parvathy2490

      Good one. It could have included a small example to show the simplicity of the same. Reasons considered here are very convincing.

    • Profile photo of Mishab Muhammed Mishab Muhammed @mohdmishab

    • Profile photo of meera j meera j @meera-j

      Its a good attempt.But I guess the answer reflects more of ‘saamoohika prathiphalanam’ angle rather than the ‘sahithyam ‘ part. I may be wrong here…..

    • Profile photo of Parvathy Parvathy @parvathy2490

      Can quote an example. Conclusion can be improved.
      Otherwise good one.

      I back Mishab there. First para could have been avoided. Liked the flow, there is uniqueness in answer. Keep writing n reviewing

    • Profile photo of meera j meera j @meera-j

      Yep. Thanks 🙂

    • Profile photo of Mishab Muhammed Mishab Muhammed @mohdmishab

      Good Answer and flow of the answer is great .
      The success of the answer lies in writing this vast topic in limited words and you have succeeded in it.
      Your conclusion is too good
      My suggestion : You could have avoided first paragraph and started with second paragraph as introduction in the context of this question and enlarge the part of ‘ kovunni nedungadi ‘.

    • Profile photo of meera j meera j @meera-j

      Thanks. Noted.

    • Profile photo of Parvathy Parvathy @parvathy2490

      Good points and good handwriting too. beautifully arranged.also highlighting important points is more beneficial i think.
      It would be better if we post answers as reply to the questions. Or we ll be confused after some time.

    • Profile photo of Mishab Muhammed Mishab Muhammed @mohdmishab

      What you said is correct.

      My suggestion :
      * Structure your answer as introduction ,main body and conclusion.
      * Writing as points is not a reliable option in malayalam as some teachers don’t like it. So please try to write in small paragraphs .
      Keep writing
      Good attempt

    • Profile photo of Parvathy Parvathy @parvathy2490

      Sure. Noted.
      Yeah I was wondering as none used bullets in answers. will take care. thank you

      What is your suggestion about following a schedule ? Like 2-3 questions from each unit in a day so that we can also finish the topics in a systematic manner ?

    • Profile photo of Apollo Apollo @sreerajeet

      Sorry Mishab. I didn’t notice your comment regarding the schedule. I guess a unit-wise approach would be better for those attempting Mains 2017 exam. I am preparing for 2018 exam and have just started with the Optional preparation. So I would chip in and review the work here as and when I cover those portions.

      I will write answers to the above questions from poems, one every day. Please review when you get time.
