I am a qualified Chartered Accountant, and currently in a job. I aspire to appear for IAS Prelims 2014, and clearing the entire IAS (prelims + mains + Interview) exam in this first attempt with higher rank.
Due to some personal reasons, I won’t be able to put in my papers till February 2014.
However, by this duration, I believe – I would be able to complete – Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, English and Verbal Ability, Competitive Magazines (News and Current Affairs part) from May 13 to Feb 14, Polity by Laxmikanth, Indian Economy by Ramesh Singh, Economic Survey and NCERT Books – Class 7th to 10th. Please let me know, if these is sufficient till Feb 14.
After the job is done, I can ensure for minimum 12 hrs. a day, without fail. Also, I would be appearing for CWA Inter examination in June 2014 as a preparation for the Optional papers (I am opting for Commerce as Optional), soon after which I will continue for Prelims prep with 14 hrs. a day.
Fourth, from the viewpoint of industrial utilization, solar energy has an immense drawback in comparison with energy of terrestrial origin. The latter is available in a concentrated form; in some cases, in a too concentrated form. As a result, it enables us to obtain almost instantaneously enormous amounts of work, most of which could not even be obtained otherwise. By great contrast, the flow of solar energy comes to us with an extremely low intensity, like a very fine rain, almost a microscopic mist. The important difference from true rain is that this radiation rain is not collected naturally into streamlets, then into creeks and rivers, and finally into lakes from where we could use it in a concentrated form, as is the case with waterfalls. Imagine the difficulty one would face if one tried to use directly the kinetic energy of some microscopic rain drops as they fall. The same difficulty presents itself in using solar energy directly (., not through the chemical energy of green plants, or the kinetic energy of the wind and waterfalls). But as was emphasized a while ago, the difficulty does not amount to impossibility. *25*
