@sleepingwarrior Reading this makes me proud of the people like you. You are what makes an aspirant a true philosopher.
I see you are in pain and belive me this pain is going to be your biggest weapon. Today, standing on the other side of the line I feel thankful to the pain I had. After CSE2017 crash out I never let that feeling go away: that how I felt, how it made me feel, how much it shattered my own personal being, my own very existence ( I know some people cannot associate with this, especially those who make it in 1st or 2nd attempt). It was not only about UPSC, it was not only to prove something, it was also a promise to myself: that you mean something, that you have something, and that it was not all for nothing.
I just waded through pain, pushed the boundaries, wrote 2 tests in single days many times( I had backlogs due to my field duty).
"It has to be done...karna hai to karna hai...What do we say to the god of death...Not today(Arya/GoT).. Remember that day...Do you want to repeat that(CSE16&CSE17 results declaration days..It's all gonna end someday....Just few more minutes buddy..."
These were just some random thoughts which used to run consciously/sub-consciously during that time, especially during answer writings. You see, I never let that pain go away. I made it my guide, my constant motivator, my best friend.
Now, today after all the post selection rituals (celebration, felicitations, meeting with unknown relatives etc) whenever I find myself alone and in peace with myself, I find a sense of gratitude to that pain I had. I miss the person I used to be who used to carry that pain.
So what I want to say to you is this: It is absolutely normal what you feel and it is very right to have that maniac mentality, that brutal commitment, that self promise to trample the things which demean you in the first place.
Own your pain, wade through it. It will one day give you what you ever wanted.

@exman Did you finish revising basic NCERTS? I just landed up here after seeing neyawn's post on 30 days run up to prelims. Does everyone set up their own daily target or are you moderating this ?
@platypus_perry Everyone sets up their own targets daily and try to finish it by the end of the day. I am not moderating anything.
@exman Cool. Carry on!

@IWRA It's been 6 days since cyclone fani has hit odisha. 6 days of no electricity, water and mobile network. The capital city of odisha has been put to standstill. Scorching heat (40 degrees) coupled with no water is a terrible combination. Well i am not the only one going through such terrible phase of life but one of the few who has to appear CSE on june 2nd. As of now all my energy is spent on accumulating resources unlike others appearing mock and revising. While i was about to give-up and accept my destiny, I came across a beautiful post of Sir sumit kumar (AIR 54) on quora. I kept reading on and on to realise how far i have come. For a fact, i am not gonna go home w/o a fight. I will re-strategise and build everything from scratch. Everything.
whatever it takes...
