    •  Mohit Raj @mohitraj

      Hello, Adarsh Sir
      What about daily answer writing initiative ? Are you going to halt it further ? Bcz A lot of answers have gone unchecked since few days.
      I personally request you to please continue and allow us to practice it daily as usual till now. It has been highly beneficial.
      Rather, I would also urge to please modify it into a learning cum daily answer writing ,where pre decided topics to be mentioned for study and then questions next day. It would give us an edge over all topic coverage and learning as well….If it sounds good ,kindly entertain it Sir. Thank you

    F. W. Taylor is considered to be the foremost proposer of the scientific management in the USA. He was a trained engineer and experienced shopfloor manager who had used the both to evolve the best way to work.
    1. His one best way is still used to optimise work time and increase productivity.
    2. His differential pay method is the first study of motivation and humanist studies.
    3. His scientific selection as a precursor to training has increased productivity and efficiency.

Writing practice is the most important aspect and especially under an experienced mentor like Adarsh sir. His notes and guidance helped me a lot in my preparation.
