Comments from @root

  • – This is the official thread for Himachal’s Current Affairs
  • – The thread is moderated by the owner and his/ her peers from the same state. What to expect here?
  • – State Specific Schemes and Initiatives (helps in GS answers and essays)
  • – Culture related stuff in news (helps you learn the static history part when the festival is celebrated + some additional info)
  • – Unique practices (GI Tags news etc OR some innovative techniques)
  • – Governance initiatives (some case study/ news of in-service officers)
  • – Anything which escapes the national conscience in general due to bias media coverage

Why do we need separate threads for each state?
