When Trump plans to visit Pakistan, his advisors tell him, “Mr President, Imran has said okay, but you know from whom we need the final okay?”

“Ah yes, their army! Get in touch with the generals and ask if I can come!”

“Mr President, and what about India?”

“Well, the Prime Minister and I share a good rapport!”

“Sir, it is no more in the Prime Minister’s hands whether you can land in Delhi or not!”

“Ye gads, then whose hands is it in?”

“The mob! We’ll have to get in touch with cow vigilant leaders, anti-romeo squads, religious slogan shouting bosses, rapists and journalist shooting hitmen to ask permission sir!”

Sounds ludicrous right?But as slowly and steadily mob rule spreads in the country, it will soon move from lynching of minorities, thrashing of policemen, like what happened to a woman constable yesterday, to, when the voice of the mob will even overrule the will of the government.

Yesterday columnist Shobha De wrote of her driver thrashed unconscious in Mumbai, because his car was in the way of motorcyclists riding in the wrong direction!This, not in some distant suburb but in the city!

Police do move in, sometimes mobsters are arrested, but walk out quickly,garlanded by followers outside.

Mob violence is increasing like fury in our land. We are shocked by stonepelters in Kashmir but cases of lynch mobs and other violent incidents are taken with a pinch of salt since we paint them with communal colours!But mobs have no colours, and like the terrorist, use cowardly tactics to target the innocents, the weak and the vulnerable.

That’s you!

Who has empowered the mob? Why, politicians themselves. They have realized that to get elected they need to get maximum votes fromvote banks, who ask only one thing, “Leave us alone, while we break the law, while we get illegal water connections, while we steal electricity, build double and triple storied hutments, disastrous fire hazards, legally under some act, specially passed for them.

The mobs are from vote banks formed by politicians. But now they are out of control!

How do we, the educated, salaried, tax paying minority counter this? By fighting, shouting till you become hoarse for hundreds and thousands of judicial courts to be set up. Now. Because today if you and I have justice delivered immediately, we will be able to fight mob rule. Tomorrow is too late, and we may actually see Trump or other world leaders getting off their aircraft, greeted first by mob lords and thendown the line by a prime minister or president.

If you don’t want this to happen and if the mob isn’t already at your doorstep, act now..!

Mr A K Mishra, Founder and Director ,Chanakya IAS Academy

India’s most aspired Civil Services Examination tests lakhs of candidates every year on their competency and suitability for the highly responsible Administrative Services and only a handful are selected for the same. Reasons being varied, the first feeling of an aspirant failing at any level of the examination, is - where did I go wrong? After having studied an entire ocean of syllabus, still not being able to make it to the next stage unknowingly creeps in the feeling of depression. Not going in the depth of what must not happen, let us learn the cleanest way of dealing with stress and anxiety post exam failure.

1.       Refine your attitude: You can never conquer the fear of failure, until you have the guts to do so. Always remember, life has its own ways to test you throughout your journey of life and failure is only a temporary halt and not the ultimate destination. You have a long way to go and you must be ready for that. Change your attitude& refine it for good! Be open only to positive & progressive thoughts and people. Rest will automatically fall into place.

‘Fear limits your vision! Be your own searchlight!’

2.       Assess the reasons behind the failure: The first and foremost step to deal with the horrific feeling and refining it to a more assertive ambition is to not let the feeling creep inside you. Rather, accept that you must start over& stop only after making it happen! Best way to do so is by assessing what went wrong analytically and how it can be rectified.

You have the question paper& you have your study sources. Go through the entire question paper and cross check where you went wrong, and start working on it again. Learn from your mistakes and rectify the loopholes. Since you have already prepared well and covered the syllabus, consider this as your strength and focus more on improvising the lacking areas.

‘Mistakes have the power to turn you into someone you can never expect out of yourself’

 3.       Circumvent from thinking about failure: Do you remember the story of ‘Robert the Bruce and the spider’? If no, time to read it today! Robert Bruce was a king of Scotland under the rule of English King. He wanted to make Scotland a free country. He fought many battles but was defeated many by his enemy. He fled from the battlefield and hid himself in a cave to save his life. He had no more courage to fight another battle. In the cave, the king saw a spider. The spider was hanging with a thin thread. Spider was about to reach its cobweb when he fell to the ground. He tried again and again to climb up to reach his web and every time he failed. But he did not give up his efforts.  At last, he succeeded and reached his cobweb and successfully taught a lesson to the king as well. After looking at the will power of the spider, the king again gathered his lost courage, gathered his army once again and decided to defeat his enemy, and he finally succeed.

All you need is to find a motivation for yourself, surround yourself with the people who have strong will power, and who can motivate you to try again and give your best again, because people with strong will power and self-faith can never be defeated in life and find their way to success after conquering all the challenges.

So what you need to do at the moment?

·         Surround yourself with positive people who can positively encourage you

·         Watch the videos of successful candidates who succeed in their 2nd, 3rd or even 4th attempt in Civil Services Examination

·         Set your priorities

·         See where you went wrong

·         Learn from your mistakes and rectify them

·         Trust yourself again, and go for it

4.       Derive a fresh study plan: Start all over again!

Yes, please do it!

 Go ahead with planning a new study schedule with a strategized time table dedicated to providing enough time for each topic from the static & dynamic portion. But, before that –

a)      Learn the syllabus by heart – UPSC Syllabus should be the first thing you learn, before starting off for preparation of Civil Services Examination. The paper will revolve around the same curriculum only.

b)      Dedicate a stipulated time for studies from your regular routine – Write down your daily routine, including all regular chores and then circle the hours you can dedicate to studies. Strategize your study sessions, accordingly. Dedicate long hour sessions to your static subjects and keep enough time for current affairs preparation.

c)       Plan your subjects with priorities – Having attempted the exam once, you already know what subjects are easy for you and what hold your weakness. Prioritise your subjects, giving enough room to each subject that needs your attention.

d)      Practice your way out – Mock Tests and previous year papers hold their own importance and you obviously already understand that better. The more you practice with these papers, the better will be your performance. 

5.       Give in your best efforts: You are the only person who can use your abilities in the best efforts. Often failures tend to block your thoughts and actions. But if you are willing to trust yourself enough and give this attempt with the best of your preparation and dedication, you will be soon controlling the sail even in the worst currents. Nothing and no-one can stop you! Let this be the best of your efforts and may the hard-work reap you the contentment and gratification of success, you deserve.

Triceps is a 3 headed muscle situated right behind the bicep muscle and is responsible for the bulk of your arms.

A well developed tricep gives your arms a bulky and huge look.

The best movement to develop the tricep muscles is the French press, or as we call it now a days “skull-crushers”

This exercise requires a full range of motion in order to be effective.

Similar like barbell curls one can perform this exercise on a Straight barbell or an EZ barbell aka Curved bar, based on their comfort level.

My preference is the EZ bar as it is softer on the wrists and I get a better muscle connection with the bar as I don’t have to be conscious about my wrist getting injured.

Now, to perform this exercise follow the below written steps:

Step 1: Hold the bar with an “inside grip”, which simply means to hold the bar narrower than your shoulders.

Step 2: Lie on an exercise bench with your back tight, lower back slightly curved and feet wide and flat on the floor for a good and stable posture.

Step 3: Hold the bar at chest level and;

Step 4: With your elbows facing forward lower the bar right above your forehead as you breathe in and press the bar back to the starting position as you breathe out.

When you lower the bar remember to feel that stretch on your triceps, and as you press the bar back up flex as tightly as you can.


Always choose a bar and weight with which you are comfortable with, and if you ever feel like going heavy on this exercise always have someone spot aka support you as this movement is a bit risky than other movements and one might get injured.

Always perform this exercise with a tight grip.

So keep grinding! Ciao, till next week!

If you want to drive an auto-rickshaw in Mumbai, they don’t test you for your driving skill, or your politeness with passengers, but pass you if you know Marathi. If you want to send your child to school in the same city, parents have to produce a domicile certificate saying they belong not to this country, oh no, but to this state!

Yet, when Mumbai’s TajMahal Hotel was under attack in 2008, a young commando named Major Sandeep, daringly entered the hotel to rescue men and women kept hostages by the terrorists. Sandeep was from Bangalore, he’d studied at the Frank Anthony school over there, had even been part of the school choir. But strange, as he entered Mumbai to do a job nobody else could do, not the local police, not the local politicians nor the local political party, nobody stopped him and asked him to show his domicile certificate. No politician, stood at the door of the besieged Taj Hotel and said, “Sir have you brought your domicile certificate?” No policeman shouted, “Hey he’s taking away my job!” Nobody told him, “Sir you cannot go in if you are not a son of the soil!”

He went in, rescued the captives, was shot by the terrorists and died.

Major SandeepUnnikrishnan was part of the Special Action Group of the National Security Guards! He was a son of the soil wasn’t he? Which soil? The soil of India!

When we shout with firmness and conviction ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai!’ we are shouting for our beloved country! We are the sons of Indian soil, not Maharashtra, not Karnataka, not Punjab or Bengal, but India!

When our soldiers go to the border and fight, do people from those towns and villages tell them, “Go back, we will defend our borders ourselves!”

Oh no, the soldier from Tamilnadu, from Kerala defends the borders of Kashmir and vice versa when the situation so demands and they are all thought of as sons of the soil, even if they do not speak the local language!

In America you can move from Texas to New York and pick up a job without being discriminated against! Their constitution allows it! Ours does too, but politicians don’t like it. Like the British who used the ‘divide and rule’ policy, our political leaders do the same.

If I am an Indian, I am a son of the soil. India is my motherland, and I should be able to work, to study and live anywhere in the country with the same rights as my neighbour.

If Major SandeepUnnikrishnan could die for Mumbai without a domicile certificate then why should I need a certificate to drive a rickshaw or pick up a job anywhere in the country?

India is my motherland, which makes me her son! Right?
