“All kidding aside, that doesn’t make much sense. A section should have a philosophical orientation. But maybe it’s too much? The exam is intended to recruit officers for the public service, not to become Jagat gurus. Most people in India still face real issues in the field, which are not rooted in philosophy, ”one user wrote.
“It will sound very philosophical. Indeed it is and now it is the real test of aspirants’ personality. UPSC is now on the right track to radically change things. No bookish knowledge will work. You have to be too genuine, ”wrote another.
