Guru Dronacharya had instructed the cook at the ashram to not serve his students food at night. One day, however, the dinner got delayed. While everyone was eating at night, suddenly, the lights went off. As Arjuna ate in the dark, he realized that there was automatic coordination between his hands and mouth. He did not require vision to put his hand into his mouth. This was an amazing discovery for him. This meant that he could orient himself to shoot the target even in the night, through his other senses. He immediately took up his bow and arrow to practice in the dark. And from then on, the entire month, he would practice day and night!
Day and night- just practice.
If you want to ace the UPSC examination, then PRACTICE is your only option. Arjuna had practiced for decades before his real test in the Mahabharata war. Even you need the same discipline, consistency and hard work to clear this examination.
On a daily basis, UPSC Aspirants faces a lot of issues like
- What to read, what not to read and how to read?
- Whether our timetable is realistic to not only finish, but also provide space for revision?
- Whether we are on the right track or not?
Sometimes, despite putting 12-16 hours in a day aspirants don’t feel satisfied.
