      1. so gao bade bahut raat ho gayi ha…hahhaah shubh ratri aur please essay ke liye quotes quotations and one liners share karna please…u r really doing a great job for upsc aspirants..

  1. Hello @ias4sure

    I recently found out about your initiative. Specifically for essays, I would suggest+request if you could come up with a compilation of 40-50 odd quotes (mostly by Gandhi Ji , Vivekananda Ji and likewise personalities) , it would cut down the job of serious aspirant by a lot. Nonetheless, a great start. Best wishes.

    1. @CtoD:disqus you can find a small compilation by clicking the link in the post. Link won’t open in mobiles. Open it in desktop/laptop browser. We are providing context for these quotes one by one. Hope that’s helpful.

      1. That’s careless of me. Should have found out myself. It more than helps. I admire your efforts mainly because I too make my own notes in One Note and I know how much time it takes. Your call-to-action on the landing page was pitch perfect. More powers!
