  2. Sir , I am highly debt for your generous work. Thankyou GuruJi.

    Sir, for CSE-2016 Will your previous Economy and Geography lectures suffice ?l

    1. Yes Vivek,

      I think everything can be used for 2016 as well except for some numbers that might come up in the Economic Survey 2015-16 and Annual Budget-2016-17 .
      If there are some new concepts that come up in either of them , probably we can expect 1 -2 lectures to cover those .

      Else, we can use the previous years’ videos.


  3. Other than the starting 3-4 lectures, most of the economy videos were based on currents. So let’s hope Mrunal God updates economy with more of his brilliant lectures.

  25. Sir I have watched your the first one video lecture on history .. I appreciate your efforts but I want to make a few points here
    1) you didn’t cover many basic and important facts like first second n important governors of Portuguese, you did not talk about Danes ..who also come to India before french, n important wars
    2) what was the reason for the predominance of Portuguese in trade with India for almost 100 years n how English were able to throw them out
    3) why Portuguese didn’t seek the expansion of territory or colonial rule
    4) and what was the agreement BTW England n dutch ..??
    I want to say that you need to utter few lines about all important points

  34. sir, I have doubts in the HS1/P1 lecture
    1. Shujauddin is nawab of bengal in 1726 but not in 1651.But it is said in the lecture that shujauddin gave free trading rights in 1651. I saw in internet and i didnt find that shujauddin name in 1600s.
    2. you said farmaan was given by jahangir in 1609 to construct factory @surat and factory was built in 1613
    but at the end the question is when was the permission given? and you said the answer is 1613… Farmaan itself is permission right?

    1. HEllo harsha. i think you have a point ,what do you think about it? he made a mistake or?

  35. Sir, i truly respect you hard-work and dedication for the students. Really appreciate your videos. I believe it is vital and very important for competitive exams. Thank you
