  • My economy lectures for UPSC-2015 batch have started at SPIPA, Ahmedabad (run by Government of Gujarat.)
  • I’ve requested them to record all of my lectures for this batch, so it can benefit aspirants at other places, through youtube.
  • Although unlike Salman khan neither they nor I can make any “commitments” because of the technical glitches in a typical sarkari IT-setup.
  • Anyways, First lecture was done on 16th January 2015, and uploaded. Total ~2:00 hours but I’ve split it into four parts. Click me to watch them
  • PowerPoint of the lecture, available at files.secureserver.net/0fxNJqSZOKiE4I
  • Medium of instruction- Hindi.
  • English version not possible for the moment, because I’m required to teach at this batch, in Hindi/Gujarati only. Besides, same content is available in English-text articles and English PPTs on the site.
