In today’s episode, we have Saloni Khanna in conversation with Raj Shamani. She is an Educationist, Economist, UPSC Interviewer, and also the Founder of ‘Skill Up Foundation’. In this episode, we talked about why UPSC exam candidates are the major chunk of unemployed people, what is the common factor among people who do well in life, how much to IAS officers earn, and why some amount of corruption is important for the growth of the country. We also talked about why Non-English speaking people are in the minority in civil services and the coaching mafia in UPSC exam preparation. Towards the end, she shared 3 practical tips to win any debate, she shared her memories with Vikas Divyakirti sir, why people love him so much, and more. Further, she shared tips to introduce the right way in a UPSC interview and on a date. We also discussed the popular myths around UPSC and IAS officers and ended our conversation by discussing whether one should date while preparing for the UPSC exam or a big career goal.
