  17. Thank you…Mam

  18. hello sir
    please give information best book for histry in hindi for upsc exam

  19. Sir i want to prepare myself, plz guide me how to prepare for getting good marks in CGL

  20. Sir, I am a regular follower of you blog and make notes of every article published in this blog regularly because information can be grabbed easily. But now I am very much disinterested to see this site because it is providing the content in the form of lectures (though it is helpful to many who knows Hindi ). I understood from the comments that the lectures are crispy clear .I am very dissatisfied with this(lecture model of teaching) as a south Indian who is not good Hindi and it is clearly hampering my resources.
    Though the topics are mentioned in the page you are dealt with this is not sufficient to understand the topic. So I request you(mrunal sir ) to present the lecture content in the website but not mere sections and subsections of a topic or try to present the lecture in English.

  21. No words to say mam….thanks is toooooooooo little……………. god bless yu

  22. I am very sorry to inform you that your recent efforts, which is to benefit the aspirants was not successful. Though I am a regular follower of your blog and makes notes of every topic, But now lectures( hindi) which you are presenting for the purpose of aspirants is benefitting only few sections of people because language has became a great barrier to me as well as my friends. So I request u to provide the lectures in English which can be grabbed by all of them or please write the entire content of the specified topic as earlier.
    I think you will take our problems into considerations and provide a better remedy as soon as possible.
    I am always thankful to your relentless service to the aspirants.

    1. I am a victim of this new strategy. I kindly request mrunal sir to just provide the content which is being delivered in lectures in hindi in the blog.

    2. it seems you are getting more than what you wish for and that is also for free that’s why you ask for more .. this is a selfless act if you wana take it then take it or leave it. DO NOT DEMAND.

  23. Is anyone appearing with Chemistry optional in 2015?? Pls reply..

    1. Plz refer to Mr. Abhijeet Agrawal blog for chemistry optional. He is AIR-28 in CSE 2009.

  24. One suggestion (the reason i and so many people don’t often visit your website/app anymore) is that most of work is now* video based, which is not handy anymore. Only those topics should be explained in video that require personal (teacher-pupil) touch. It was easier for us to make notes and study it with our own speed by reading the text form. Although your style of teaching is awesome but as per my style of studying i prefer to read then watch video. This webiste, now, is nothing more than ‘links collection’ page. At least consider this comment.

  25. Sir…..old pattern was better and reachable to masses…but thus video mode only where good speed available
