Discussion and reasoning by dialogue as a method of intellectual investigation.
Civil services has for long remained one of the most sought after career paths and rightly so. To a young aspirational Indian, the IAS is a 'heaven born service' untouched by patronage and bias in its recruitment. The three stage recruitment process is generally considered rigorous and gruelling. The general notion prevalent today is that aspirants cannot have a standing against the supposedly toughest exam in the world without a line of mentors, experts, coaching material and so on and so forth. An astute system is in place to capitalise on fears and angst of young aspirants. Coaching centres have successfully managed to create a menacing dependency pushing young minds to intellectual torpor.
