  14. Thanks for such knowledgeable lectures

    Actually most of the aspirants of UPSC and SSC dnt have fast internet connection. It would be really helpful if you can provide them in HQ with compressed size format.
    Plus , Mam and Sir remove that Inset Camera stuff. it’s not helpful it’s occupying the space of slide. If you remove that slides will be more clear in case of Geography . Mrunal Sirr’s lecture looks gd because he uses big visuals and texts only. Bt in case of mam..there are lots of maps where many things are not visible (like rivers,mountains etc) because of small slide size and the only available resolution 320p.

    it’s only kind suggestion from my side. otherwise all the study material is great.
    Thanks a tonne

    1. in such case, what i have been doing, i download the ppt first and then watch the lecture, while going through the lecture i keep the ppt open of that lecture and when ever there is something i cant see, i go to ppt and see. it takes 10 seconds more but it can be done . thanks

  20. I am not able to take the proper printout of these slides….if I take as handouts say 4 to 6 slides then the prints appear on the above half of the page…..if I take one slide per page then lots of wastage of papers….someone kindly advise how to take the print out say 4 to 6 slide per page with proper fit in the full paper…

    1. Convert it to pdf and then print.
