NEW INITIATIVE for 2016 Aspirants and 2015 Mains + Interview Hopefuls: Insights Daily Debates

Insights Daily Debates

Once upon a time we used to conduct Insights Weekend Debates (Click Here) That was very popular then. For some reasons, we discontinued it.

Now we would like to continue it again and make it a continuous program like that of Insights Secure.

Why now? When Prelims is approaching?

We have given lots of thought about this new initiative. We kept postponing this announcement for last two months as we wanted our Self Study Guide initiative to run smoothly first. Now the time has come to announce it as we believe that this initiative would be useful for many sections of UPSC IAS aspirants if launched now.

This initiative is targeted towards

  • 2016 civil services Aspirants
  • For the Hopefuls of 2015 Mains and Interview
  • For those who are scared of writing

This is also targeted towards people giving Prelims this year, but indirectly. We hope that spending half an hour on these debates before you go for sleep would help you beat the  anxiety and keep you away from exam pressure.

Why 2016 Aspirants?

It is basically a WRITTEN Debate. We pose you a thought-provoking question (or series of questions) and you should express your opinion in the comment box. For a person preparing for 2016 UPSC CSE, this is a warm up exercise to get familiar with burning issues of the day. We will be posing a question on topics that matter to you. After reading so many opinions and views on this topic, the issue will be permanently etched in your memory. You can express your views constructively without fear. Reading passively, especially the current events, will take you nowhere. If you want to top in 2016, you must start reading and writing from now itself. This initiative is an easy way to start this exercise right away.

Why 2015 Mains + Interview Hopefuls?

By now you know that writing practice matters most in this exam. In interview, your balanced original view is even more important. We have experienced in Weekend Debates that one if sportively participates in these debates, he/she will get an in-depth knowledge about the issue.

Moreover, as you will be expressing it through the medium of writing, this will help in writing good answers as well. You should try it to experience what we are saying here. 🙂

For those who are hesitating to write answers and post them on the site, this debate will act as a catalyst. Please post your views, may be 3-4 lines, but do post them. Once you get used to commenting, expressing opinion becomes a smooth affair.

This exercise will also help you in fine-tuning your opinion on an issue that is sensitive. Your feedback on others comments will enrich your thinking. This will also help the person to know loopholes in his argument. Of course, the whole debate should be constructive. We will moderate to ensure that the debate doesn’t go haywire.

Thankfully, Insights has always been a platform filled with positive energy where learning matters most (not competition). Our website followers till today have been exceptionally supportive and constructive. We hope this continues to reflect in Daily Debates.

About This Initiative:

We will start this from coming Monday (July 27, 2015) . The posts under this New Initiative will be posted in the evening at 8 pm every day. It is holiday on Saturdays and Sundays.

We will post a Question to you with a link to reference article (Not Always though). The question will demand expression of your original opinion on a particular issue (mostly a sensitive issue). We will try our best to restrict ourselves to the topics that are related (directly or indirectly) to the UPSC civil services syllabus.

 

How to Participate?

As soon as the question is posted, please think about it from multiple angles. This is NOT an ANSWER WRITING CHALLENGE, hence you will have the freedom to freely express your thoughts albeit in a restrained manner. But please try to convey your thoughts in as less words as possible. Usually lesser the better. A reader wants to read your main argument. Your ideas should not get lost amidst so many words.

Take a stand and substantiate it.

While expressing your opinion, please make sure that you do not just vent out your feelings without providing evidence to back your argument. Provide factual or conceptual evidence to support your argument. Illustrate with examples. Try to make it interesting.

This way of giving expression to your thoughts not only helps you in improving your writing, this will also help you speak better, especially during interview or in group discussion.

Word of Caution!

We request aspirants giving Prelims this year to not to spend more than half an hours on this initiative.

Final Note:

We are starting this initiative not to stop it anytime in the future. We have given so much thought, and also from previous experience have observed that actively engaging you helps us both. It helps you to overcome your inhibitions. It helps us to keep you engaged productively. It also helps us retain traffic and get some money from advertisements. But if you are a regular follower of our site, you might already be knowing that our main concern has always been YOU. (this is of paramount importance for us than anything else).

Nowadays preparing for UPSC is not a boring journey anymore. It is an intellectual journey where you discover new things every day, where you enrich yourself with new ideas and finally everything culminates to get you closer towards your dream. Whether you get rank or not, in the end you will be a rich person intellectually.

When we started it for the  first time on October 23, 2013 (Please Click Here), we received tremendous response. More than 240 opinions were posted within one hour. Few who participated that day have went on to become UPSC toppers today!

We hope this new initiative of ours will be useful for all of you. Participate in it to see if it benefits you or not. If not, you can always stay away from it. But, we firmly believe that this initiative will go long way in making your UPSC journey even more enjoyable and interesting. 🙂

This exam is all about  your opinion now. We hope Insights Daily Debates gives you an opportunity to express and refine your opinions.

We shall meet you on Monday Evening at sharp 8 pm. 

In the below comment box, we request you to list out Topics for these Daily Debates which you want to debate and Give ideas to make this initiative enriching. Other constructive opinions are also welcome.

Thank you.

  • c_alam_ity

    Great initiative! One suggestion is that if people refrained from using the reply feature and posted responses or criticism of any arguments as new comments, the debates would be easier to read. Also, it would be great if someone volunteered to summarize the main arguments made in the debate and these were posted the next day, it would become a great resource. Finally, it would be great if factual claims were backed by posting the sources alongside.

    • Mukhilarasan Rajakumar

      This is wonderful initiative and following c_alam_ity ‘s suggestion of summarizing the entire debate will make it even more wonderful. As soon as I read the article, I went on to read the entire debate on Oct 23, 2013. It was huge debate with plenty of brilliant ideas scattered here and there. But also there is huge overlap of information. There are some people who cannot actively participate in the debate and read entire thing due to time constraint(working professionals, cse 2015 aspirants, etc). I think benefit of this debate should available to every one. So I request the INSIGHTS to collect all the brilliant ideas and views, classify them and present at last in a organized manner. I know implementing this will hugely overburden you but if you do it, it would be of immense help. If even INSIGHTS do it for some of the debate if not for all, it will create great impact. Thank you INSIGHTS, you are doing a revolution.

      • rockstar

        That would be superb. I don’t know whether I can write something about the topic or not, but I will surely collect all the relevant points and will post here on the next day.

        • Mukhilarasan Rajakumar

          Thank u Rockstar, it will going to be a great help for everyone of us 🙂

      • Rajesh J

        summary at the end makes this brilliant intiative a grand success for sure

      • Radhika M

        U shud refer to the reference sites provided by insights … they do the same work of summary … they r really good

  • priyadarsi samal

    Gud evng sir,
    Sir I am now 25 year old working in a software company.I am planing to give 2016 upsc exam.But yesterday I got the news that govt is deciding to setup an expert committee to decide regarding the nature of civil service exam(age,maximum relaxation etc).
    That’s why I want to know whether there will be any chance that the age limit may reduce…please give guidance what to do right now to leave the job to study hard or to continue with the job …I am deciding to leave the job to focus properly on study but afraid that if there will be any age reduction then I will face trouble..sir pls suggest

    • Vaibhav Jain

      You just can’t hang on the results of the committee (if there is any). You will just be reducing your study time and henceforth your chances of clearing 2016 prelims, by doing that. And currently age limit is 32 for general category, and the probability of reducing it to 25 or 26 is nearly zero as there are many players in this age group.

      In my opinion you should devote your whole time in studies right from this very moment without thinking about results of the committee if you really want to clear 2016 prelims.

      • priyadarsi samal

        Thank you sir,
        But one more thing sir can you please give the time table for 2016 aspirants..

        • Vaibhav Jain

          Hey Priydarshi, I am just another aspirant for prelims 2016 like you. This was just my personal opinion regarding your predicament. I think Insight will bring out prelims 2016 time table just after Prelims 2015 exam as it did previous year.

    Etc.

  • Prin

    I would like to suggest that topic should be told one day before the actual discussion because every body might not be familiar with topic and might not participate even if he/she wants to. And as all topic are gonna be relevant to UPSC then one can read about the same before discussion or putting his point.

  • Manish Chandran

    I think this initiative must not convert into a mere discussion on current affairs rather we should concentrate on certain trends in domestic and Global theater which resurface again and again that will be more important.

    My 2 cents

    2.Economies of subsidy and understanding the New Initiative

    3.Freedom of Speech, Indictment and public discourse

    4.Fifty shades of Indian Foreign Policy (Post UPA era)

  • Raj Kumar

    It will be a distraction for 2015 prelims preparation. It would be better if you can wait till 23 August. Now is the time to revise things, even if we got distracted for half an hour, topics will be there in mind for entire day. It is my humble request to postpone it.

    • No. We will be posting Self Study Guide questions almost at the same time. Please focus on Self Study timetable.

      Moreover, by August 23, you will have many issues covered here which will be useful for Mains this year.

      Thank you.

      • Raj Kumar

        Yours All Initiative are so good that I want to participate in all of them. But truth is that once we get into a discussion on a question, we repeatedly come online to check if someone had commented on that or has somebody liked it or not. This only create curiosity and distracts a lot.
        I am not opposed to this Initiative, only concern is the timeline of it.

        • Radhika M

          Hey raj!
          I think these discussions and curiosity keeps one’s prep alive … how monotonous otherwise things wud b. … in my opinion u shud cut down ur time spent elsewhere and be connected only to insights and ur personal prep .. atleast that helps me so I suggested 🙂 … or else u always hv the option of not participating and hence not getting involved if it’s taking too much of ur attention and time … now is the time when our hard work and productivity shud increse with every passing day … and such discussions also help in increasing a sense of urgency …which is very helpful! ? … So don’t be afraid … its one very positive step!

  • Dominican Toronto

    etc.

  • Vivek Kumar Singh

    hi insight its really amazing that u r reviving this initiative once again. My few recommendation for this are :
    1. Restriction of words. This would encourage us to innovate the correct expression for our thoughts,therefore improve brevity.
    2. A short 250 words final summary and its compilation.
    these two would improve our concise and exact expression as demanded by UPSC.
    Also it will give us option of revision of current topics and its broader dimensions in no time.
    Topics for consideration are :
    1. Need for full fledged Cyber force-Harnessing youth and securing nation
    2. Gender Parity in law- restoring gender balance
    3. Need for experts in foreign services
    4. FTP 2015
    5. National health policy-Universalisation of health services
    6. Need for Reorientation of national disaster policy towards recognising the newer environment issue- heat wave,land slides,cyclones and lightning
    7. Foreign policy shift towards US- implications on India in evolving multipolar world order.
    8. Zenith in laws and Nadir in value system- increasing number of laws and value system falling
    9. Agricultural in India prevailing issue and there solutions
    10. What as a society India can learn from its glorious past?

  • Bhagat

    Insights its my bday on 27th and you have given me best gift of all thanx alot.My suggestion-
    1.A compilation by you at the end of every week for every debate will be beneficial for us as concise document on opinion based questions,which will help us in revision in future.
    We ask a lot from you,and I don’t know how this debt will be paid back.
    thank you again.

  • Mukhilarasan Rajakumar

    revolutionary initiative and here are suggestions for topic.

    1. Whether we are not as democratic as we should be, while dealing the Yakub Memom’s death row case?

    2. Whether British owes moral debt to India(for its looting during imperia rule)?
    this debate is particularly triggered by Shasi tharoor in his oxford speech http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-33612839

    3. If Indian war of Independence(1857) had became an success, then India would not have been a democratic country or even exist as a single country as of now.

    4. Gandhi’s “Self sustained village” idea would have proved a disastrous as it also make some prejudices(caste, women discriminaton) sustainable. Argument in favour or against.

    5. World wars(both WW1 and WW2) are actually blessing in disguise(as it is main reason behind freedom from imperial rule).

    Sir, it would be of much help if you could provide the topic beforehand and if possible some references also. This would give us time to prepare ourselves to participate in a more fruitful discussion.

    Hi Insights, This is a tough time for me…. I lost my dad on 6th jul and I also discovered that my payment for the CSE 2015 exam did not go through…. I have been preparing a year now and feel totally lost…..
    Please help me and guide me because this is my only dream and a fitting tribute to my late father…. Please help me…

    • We are extremely sorry about your loss Saurabh.

      Please prepare for next attempt with full force. Do not worry about the past. If the payment didn’t go through and if you can not write this year, then definitely something big is awaiting next year for you. Please start earnesty. A good rank will be a great tribute to your late father. Please work towards that. We are here to help you in any way possible.

        Thank you Insights….. These words are like a balm for me…. Just one last question, I will be 28 in 2016…. Is there any chance of age limit being reduced to 26?

        • Absolutely not. It is even very unlikely that the age would be reduced to 30. Please go ahead and give your best shot in 2016. Wish you all the best.

          • Saurabh

            Thanks a lot insights… I am now inspired to face the 2016 battle with all the strength….

  • kumhrar

    great initiative .Debates really opens of our mind and brings new ideas .
    i have few suggestion
    1)words limit should be less(100-200)
    2)a particular time for debate should set so that at least those who are participating can bring new points and follow up whole thing (rather than just repeating the old points)
    3)one or two person should be “host ” for the debate .he/she can take the responsibility of collecting good points for or against the topic and summarising it at the end of the debate and posting it online .

  • Vivegam

    Hi @insights, like upsc you have shown an unpredictable change in the pattern of daily debates from nov 30. It is better to see a topic instead of question for a debate. But we really miss all your supplementary questions related to the topic and also the important links which you provide. Please provide us the supplementary question and links which are so useful for me and for lots of aspirants(I guess).

    Guys, if you agree please up vote this concern and make this reach @insight team.
