                    2. Sir this initiative is very good…but I found some problems in mindmaps…
                      1) In some mindmaps rather than analytical arguments, direct copy paste is there..
                      2) Sometimes points of one mindmap is pasted in other mindmap of the same day…
                      Pleaaa please take care of these issues…

                    3. Thanks Insight for such a innovative step in right direction … It would be great if you could share the mind map extension file for these Mind maps….
                      1. It will be easy to read.
                      2. We can make our own notes – append notes.


                    4. Sir could you please place all the mind maps in a single file with “Search” option available.. So that we can search and refer whenever we want..thanks in advance..

                    5. Guys I need info on how actually are mind maps beneficial? I mean how to use them and how they are helpful in retaining the stuff we read?

                      1. its like a digital note you would otherwise make in your current affairs notebook

                    6. Hi
                      I have a doubt regarding the questions you are posting from 22 December,2015 on wards for the Mains 2016.The link is titled as current affair(date), so what about the conventional subjects questions like history,geography,history,etc ,will they be covered under the same current affairs link or are their any other linkages for them.

                    7. hi insights : can you please arrange all these mindmaps paper wise ? it wud be a great help. thanks 🙂

                      there is heavy copy paste job in few mind maps. which makes them incoherent. maany times same point have been repeated over and over in the same mind map.

                    9. as i have some eye problem and do not able to read regularly on computer. therefore i request you to plz provide mind maps in pdf format which is printable and after that readable

                    10. It could have been insanely helpfu if insights could put mIndmap posts under different headers like health,infrastructure etc somewhat on the lines of how PRS puts its bills.

                    11. Dear Insights ,Please Enable Search Option For MindMaps…SO that We can Goto that Particular Topic as and When We Required without wasting time searching where it is…

                    12. Dear Insights,Please Enable “Search” Option for Mindmaps..So that we wont Waste time Searching where the Topic we want is….

                    13. Hi, I am going through the mind maps, daily question, and prelims test series as the sole source of preparation. I was wondering if similar sort of mind maps could be created ahead of prelims test for NCERT’s and standard books, it will be a lifetime asset for lifetime. Even we aspirants can work in groups for the same.


                    15. All random figures for the “Coal Based Plants”!!! Dont be so slacky yaar. Mazaak karoge to mazaak ban bhi jaega. What do I do with 2012 figures? You say 98 GW were produced as per 2012; which I doubt! Taking another bullet point which says: “It is expected to double by 2022” i.e. it would be 200 in 2022. Why I cant use this figure: which says it was 170 GW in November 2015. Also, “75% generation is coal-based” is absolutely wrong! It is 60% as per Government website:

                    49. dear insights
                      the mindmaps that you are posting are same for different heading and this error is really costing us
                      this has been in many cases, so please its a humble request to please immediately rectify the anomaly

                    50. are you guys even reading what u are posting ?, from the last one month 100s of comments are written to correct the glitch , but not even a single response from ur side nor the glitch is corrected!!!!!! shocking

                    51. Sir, Plz post the mindmaps in jpg format and not in bmp format as the latter is of much size to download. Plz consider. thanks…

                    52. Does anyone has the ccompilation of total mindmaps ?

                      Thanking You

                    53. hi
                      i want to add on a criticism with respect to National court of appeal mindmap ->
                      If this process of appelate jurisdiction becomes a routinal exercise as was mentioned in the article then every single jurisdiction made by any court or tribunal in the teritory of India would go to National court of appeal and thus we can see this could lead to undermining the status of high courts which could develop a situation where in the HC will start exercising its monotonous role of forwarding the petition to National court of appeal without exercising proper jurisdiction in its true spirit.

                    54. Dear Insights,

                      While providing the mindmap, could you also provide the syllabus topic associated? Like the way you do in Daily Current Affairs section. That would be really helpful.

                    55. what happened to mindmap sir, their are no mindmaps………….plz donot stop the initiative

                    56. Thanks a ton insights.. These Mindmaps are easy way to link and learn.. Hatsoff..

                    57. Plz don’t stop this initiative of Mindmaps. They are really helpful, if not daily plz update them on regular basis , like when some new event happens having broad impact. And if possible plz add govt. Policies too.
                      And let us know any mindmap update with current event section itself, we would be really grateful.?

                    58. Please Insights seggregate the mind maps in various heads or a search facility for minds .
                      For eg. All the mind maps related with China would be found togather. You are doing great job and you have huge scarsity of time but it will greatly help aspirants .
                      Thanks .

                    59. Sir, Kindly resume the initiative of Mindmaps. It is a great help to link and understand any topic holistically. Else, if it is going to be discontinued kindly inform the same too. As I prepare current affairs in and around issued Mindmaps itself. Thanks in advance.

                    60. Please continue the mindmaps series…they are comprehensive and sometimes we miss some issue by ourselves and mindmaps are really helpful full for that..plz dont discontinue

                    61. kya mindmap post krna bnd kr diya gya h?? hey friends I am here after so many days..busy in state service exams..please tell me if they are any other place..

                    62. There’s a problem, don’t know if others are facing the same. When I click on the 14.4.16-30.4.16 mindmap, the page that opens up is 13.4.16.

                    63. @ Insights … The Mind maps for 5 may 2016 are not what their heading suggests.

                    64. hi sir/mam, i just want to know what is the source for mind maps? like hindu or ?

                    65. @InsightsOnIndia:disqus It’s a request to please continue this initiative and please try to provide the Mindmaps on a daily basis as it becomes easy to review them then and there itself, instead of going through many of those which leads to extra burden. I know this is asking too much, but it would definitely help to follow a systematic and regularized plan.

                      Thanks again for the efforts you guys are putting!

                    66. There is an error in opening Geo Spatial Bill Mind map.
                      It is rather opening a different one instead.

                    67. Insights don’t even bother to check feedbacks I guess. We understand your hectic schedule, however popping out once in a while would be an encouragement. Hate to point out, but this recent practise of dumping huge chunks of mind maps altogether casts heavy burden on your followers to keep up. Takes up a lot of time in covering them and linking it with relevant topics. The daily uploads are much better – easy to connect and saves time.. A LOT! Humble request to continue with the daily upload of mind maps (not necessarily daily given your time constraints, but whenever you’ve prepared, however please resist from dumping huge chunks). Dearly hoping for a positive response.

                      Just an opinion, ignore if not feasible for the team.

                      1. i agree because its like gathering material and unable to do any thing due to lack of direction

                    68. Dear insights i don’t see any updates after 5th may. Is there any issues.

                    69. Hi INSIGHTS please please do not stop the mind map initiative.. Very very necessary for us…please provide all remaining mind maps.. Thanks..

                    70. Has ‘Mindmaps’ been discontinued….it was so imp. for us…kindly reply
                      Thank you.

                    71. @InsightsOnIndia:disqus
                      Why has this initiative being stopped?
                      Can we expect a compilation sometime later or is it just over?
                      Clarity required.

                    72. plz insight give us mindmap, synopsis, Lok Sabha aticles, yojana notes
                      why u have stop postings all
                      we need to study

                    73. plz insight give us mindmap, synopsis, Lok Sabha aticles, yojana notes
                      why u have stop postings all

                    74. Kindly update Mind Maps on daily basis. Its helps to revise the topics very holisticly

                      1. How do u take print out of these maps ? I mean the fonts are not visible when we convert it to pdf.
                        Or do U write the mindmaps?

                        Pls help

                    75. I just love the mind maps but it would have been better if, it was posted in simple manner rather than in .jpg format. That way, it’d be easier to make digital notes, copy pasting the stuff from here, which is not possible now.

                      1. just remember all the points covered in the issue in the mind map and use it while framing the answer and see how other points are co-relating in the issue.

                    76. mind maps are full of use full data so keep in mind as much as possible and it will help creating an opinion and also in framing an answer.

                      1. yes they also carry lot of facts even. and no need to make notes. now getting my doubts cleared.
