Download Notes from GMAIL Id, Google Docs & Skydrive

Hi Everyone....I received a lot of request to send the notes shared here through email as many had problems downloading from rapidshare. Therefore I've created a new Gmail id & uploaded all the notes there. The username & password are given below

Logon to GMAIL & use the below username & password to login

Username: notes.ghanshyamthori
password: freeforall

Once you have logged in, you can download all the notes from the email attachments. Its a humble request not to change the password so that everyone can benefit. Thanks. Godspeed.

PS: I have noticed that some aspirants try to delete the posts or change password. Let me tell them that this short sighted tactic will do them no good. I can easily restore the posts by sending a mail again from my personal id. Moreover I can restore the password again though my alternate id given. So please don't waste your energy on changing passwords & deleting mails. Let everyone benefit. Its a request.

New Google Docs & Skydrive Download Link:
Also to tackle the above mentioned issue I have uploaded all my notes (including two markers of GS, important topics for geography & psychology, Resources for Essays) on Google Docs & Skydrive. The link for download is mentioned below:

Link of Google Docs to download all my notes at once:

Link of Skydrive to download all my notes in one go:!105&authkey=4RDeISwUt7k%24

For those who are not net savvy, let me tell them that the notes are zipped in a folder. You will need wizip or winrar software (which can be downloaded for free from anywhere or After installing wizip, you can right click on the zipped folder & select "Extract to here" & all the notes will appear in a normal windows folder. If you still have problems you can download from the email where the file is in pdf format as well as zip format.
I hope with this I have made the soft copy of my notes as accessible as possible. All the best.

  7. Hi Sir,

    this is arvind (B.Tech-Civil Engg.). I have gone through ur page, and found it quite helpul and full of informations and valuable help for CSE aspirants.

    I have also gone through the other UPSC topper's blogs as well. Sir, my optionals are geography and Hindil Lit (medium is Hindi). Unfortunately I did'nt find a single blog having matters like startgies, course materials etc on these two subjects (with hindi medium).

    Sir, I would be highly greatful, if you could give me link/s or mail-ids of the successful candidates/ur friends (who have done with these two subjects), so that I could connect to them and can talk for my specific queries and doubts regarding the above two subjects.

    waiting for ur reply in anticipation



  8. Hi Ghanshyam,

    I have cleared the prelims and have some queries regarding the mains form :

    1) photograph : Is it has to be exactly the same copy as pasted on the prelims form or a recent one would do since I dont have a copy of the same photo I pasted on the prelims form ? Though that too was recent and now I can get a new one well matched with that one..Please help on this …Upsc no one is picking the phone

    2) In the service preferences it is mentioned that for IAS/IPS mention the state cadre I am not eligible for IPS should I write NA in every column against every state for IPS ?
    Similarly, in service preferences if there are any special requirements of a service if I by mistake mark a prefernce for it then what happens? I have a preference for the IIS say for example and I heard it requires some previous experience in the I am confused…
    Also , if no preference is there we have to mark NIL since NA doesnt seem logical but the space provided has only two columns ..please help…

    3) If I indicate IFS as 1 and IAS as 2 ..then in the interview would the questions be more focussed on foreign affairs?

    4) The pass certificate of intermediate-ICSE board( HSC certificate) has the date of birth is it accepted by the UPSC as the standard proof?

    I have asked very basic things but they are a bit ambiguously explained in the mains form thats why I am confused…waiting for your reply

  9. Thanks a lot sir.It is so nice to have full support from your side.

  10. sir, i'm not able to download your geography notes at gmail acc.

  13. Hi Sir

    Many congratulations on u'r success. I have many doubts regarding geography optional. I m working for a govt institute so i dont have the luxury of attending either classes or test series. Can u pls advise if postal test series will be of any help? Regarding Geography i m confused abt how to approach topics in II paper which r much like gs concepts. Can u pls give some inputs how to relate them with I paper concepts and put some geography into them.
    with regards

  20. First of all sorry guys for not being able to respond to the queries....the schedule in academy is pretty hectic.

    @Harshita & Rids

    I've noticed that the files have been deleted so I have uploaded them again. Infact the same files can be downloaded from rapidshare too for which I have shared the links but some people find rapidshare rather complicated to use. In any case I've uploaded the files on gmail again & have also kept a copy on my personal id so that I can easily restore them if they are deleted again.

    Also it is possible to clear exam sitting anywhere n without coaching provided you have the right guidance & material. Good Luck.
