@narayanacbe , @upsc-ias1 , let’s get started then!
Administrative thinkers it is!
I guess we all must be having the epic prasad and prasad for thinkers. If not, then google too along with you tube has satisfying content for thinkers. As@confused has said, we shouldn’t waste time in finalizing things and all. Let us take

Let us take first thinker, invest 3 days on him. Then move onto the other thinker.

Somebody, please take up the responsibility to post questions too. Not more than 2 for a single day. Questions can come up in the morning, we can review each others’ answers for the rest of the day. So with which thinker should we get started?
-Please be regular mere dosto! Honestly, the subject is tough (universal fact) let us think that we have been given one chance to brush our optional! Be regular in discussing things, posting doubts, clearing doubts, posting questions, posting answers and reviewing them!

-No WA groups please! Cost benefit ratio is poor in such things.
-Let us finalise the first thinker today, time that is to be invested, and who will be posting questions!

I am tagging people with pub adm optional so that they know they are needed here ?
