We’re here with thread 2 on how to #AceTheMains in the #UPSC exam. #Upscprelims2022 was a means to filter out aspirants,the marks aren’t counted once one qualifies.The real game which determines your rank is the Mains stage with 1750 marks. How to write a great answer? A thread:
1. Read the question. Sounds basic? You’ll be surprised at how many misread the question,fail to read all parts of it or just don’t understand what is asked. Read it twice & keep circling back to it while writing your answer. Be relevant & answer what is asked. Not many do that.
2. Your best guide, again? The #UPSC syllabus copy! Write down a simple 3 line definition of every topic & add them to your notes. This will greatly help in giving an introduction quickly in any answer, rather than wasting time thinking during the exam. Time is scarce & precious.

This is the best bhalla papdi there is in Tees Hazari Court. A satisfying plate for Rs 50. I get to eat it thanks to my sister who is a lawyer.

And on that note, here's a #Delhi food 🧵. All data collected from my 1.6 years of eating in the city.
Mazaar, my favourite. It's an Afghan restaurant in Lajpat Nagar run by Afghan refugees. Amazing food. My regular order is Uzbeki (rice cooked with mutton) which comes with rajma, burani banjan (baingan) and half a bread. Their mutton qorma and sheer yakh (ive-cream) are fab too.
Also have their namkeen lassi. It has pudeena and chopped cucumber. Perfect for this heat.

Science or sorcery? The #IronPillar of Delhi had everyone stumped for ages, till scientists solved its metallurgical mystery. The question was: how could an iron pillar be exposed to Delhi’s heat, dust, cold and rains for 1,600 years without the slightest trace of rust? 1/6 Image
Standing in the Qutb Complex, the #IronPillar is a 4th century CE, Gupta-era monument. An inscription in #Sanskrit and the Brahmi script reveals that it was erected by King Chandra (probably Chandragupta II) and that it celebrates his victories in battle. 2/6
But #DidYouKnow that the #IronPillar was originally erected in Udayagiri, in Vidisha, in present-day Madhya Pradesh? It is said to have been brought to #Delhi as a trophy by Sultan Iltutmish (r. 1211 - 1236) of the Slave Dynasty, after he conquered Vidisha. But there’s more. 3/6 Image

Written by a fellow Muslim:

There is a lesson for Delhi Muslims in all this starting from the NRC CAA protests, to the vicious East Delhi riots, to the storming of the Jamia hostel and the library by Delhi police & the Hindu mobs camouflaging as police,..
... and now the demolition of Mulsim houses in Jahangirpuri.

The one striking factor is the absence of the Delhi Chief Minister and/or the local AAP MLAs and workers.

Remember AAP has more than 60 seats in the Delhi Assembly, giving it almost 90% of the total seats.
Jahangirpuri, a Muslim-dominated colony is part of the Burari Assembly constituency which is held by AAP's MLA Sanjeev Jha.

This man had won the election with a margin of over 88,000 votes. The Burari seat has about 350,000 eligible voters.

#Delhi As communal clashes broke out in Jahangirpuri on Sat evening, this mosque in C-Block was at the middle.
Sajid Saifi who runs an electrical shop here said those carrying Shobha Yatra procession entered this mosque&tried to hoist saffron flags after which clash began.
"Two processions went peacefully but around 5:30, people started raising slogans saying we have to chant Ram Ram if we have to stay in India. We ignored but we lost cool when they entered the mosque to put saffron flags," Saifi said.
Gauri Shankar, an E-rickshaw driver who was part of the procession, said that stone pelting began from above the mosque's roof when they were crossing it. "Muslims ran with weapons in their hands. We ran towards G&H Block and then Hindus retaliated," he said.
