People choosing Urdu as optional in UPSC have overall highest success rate over years. There can be 2 reasons for this.
One, papers of Urdu are evaluated at AMU, Jamia by those who know which group takes Urdu.
Two, it is just a vague script where even spelling is secondary.+
In fact when you write by hand, it is all about weirdly placed dots and strokes often missed in hurry. There are no vowels. Unlike Indian languages that are phonetic or English that has standardized spelling and alphabets. That is why Urdu and science don't go together. +
The current UPSC selection process seems unscientific and irrational. Why do we need Civil servants to mug Anthropology or write ghaseeta urdu?
The exam must be transformed into an objective evaluation with focus on aptitude. Rest of memory stuff can be taught during training.

As Harvard said, Data Scientist is sexiest job of 21st century. 😎

Since Supreme Court is hearing on #UPSC_Jihad issue, here is a box-plot diagram of category-wise marks range for Muslims(1) and non-Muslims(0) for 2018.
I believe UPSC must be made a party and asked to explain the difference that remains for last 3 years.
Here is the box-plots for Interview (Personality Test) for 2017. Number 1 represents Muslims. Number 0 represents non-Muslims. Central line in each chart is mean. Top and bottom edges of box represent 25th and 75th percentile.
towardsdatascience.com/understanding-… will explain
Here is the box-plot for 2016. Same pattern as 2018 and 2017. Why?

Muhammad Ali Jinnah was friend to Dinshaw Petit. Just 3 years younger at 40. One day, he came to meet Petit and proposed to marry his 16 y old daughter. Despite family opposition, she eventually married 42 year old Jinnah in 1918. Jinnah forced her to become a conservative +
...Quran worshipper to suit his political agenda. At her reluctance, he separated. Eventually she is suspected to commit suicide at age of 27 under depression. Jinnah got a boost in career for doing to a Kafir child what she deserves. And announced that marriage was mistake.+
When their daughter Dina chose to marry Parsi industrialist Neville Wadia, he clashed with her. Said he married her mother only because she chose to convert to Islam.
Of course nationalism is secondary in such situations. Later when she had rift with Neville in 1943, +

In 2013, Md Arshi and Salmantaj Patil, Zakat Foundation heroes, invited celebrated terrorist-mentor Dr Zakir Naik to National Police Academy, Hyderabad to address the batch of 2012 batch IPS officers, I hear. Right or wrong must be vetted by @IPS_Association.
But there is more +
Salmantaj Patil was hailed as hero by @IPS_Association. But last year, he was suspended. He was also accused of beating a lawyer to near-death and hurling casteist attacks. Coincidentally, Md Arshi also allegedly did same to a lawyer and Dalit woman.
economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-…
Salmantaj Patil was a darling of SP and said be close to Congress. Got plush postings and had considerable influence till 2017. When an IPS batch passes out, each officer gets 2 passes for family. Salmantaj got 7 for his burqa-clad sisters, aisa suna hai.

After huge demand, giving you distribution plots of interview (personality) & written marks in UPSC. First image is for interview marks in 2018. As clearly seen, marks of M (blue) are clearly shifted by around 10 marks higher from non-M (orange) candidates. Isn't it interesting?+
The written marks of 2018 have more interesting pattern. M marks (blue) show perfect bell curve (actually too perfect for small sample). But non-M marks (orange) seem as if half of candidates' have marks pulled towards lower to balance for higher marks of top half of candidates.+
In 2017, interview marks show same trend but margin of difference between M and non-M is lesser. 2016 has a bit uneven marks pattern for non-M but a smooth curve for M. Interesting!+

What is national song of India? You may say "Vande Mataram". WRONG.

You will be shocked that as per Zafar Mahmood, ex-OSD to PM, and founder of Zakat Foundation that trains Civil Servants, it is "Sare Jahan Se Achha" by Iqbal. +
Zafar Mahmood is founder of Iqbal Academy India whose aim is to propagate message of Iqbal.
Is it not a tragedy that an experienced civil servant of India who trains hundreds others is not just fan of ideological father of Pakistan but also considers his poem national song?
+
Iqbal wrote Sare Jahan Se Achha in 1904. But in 1910, he wrote revised version of poem Tarana-e-Milli where he openly declared his Islamist agenda. What is interesting is that Zafar Mahmood has given link to this poetry in website of his Iqbal Academy.+
