  9. Hi,
    Great work so far! Can give us some idea as to by when you are planning to complete the syllabus? Can try planning accordingly.
    Thank you.

    1. I’ve hired two staffs to complete both papers 1 and 2 asap. One of the staffs cleared UPSC mains 3 times in a row and another one cleared state civil services. So they give only quality mindmaps at the expense of some time. I guess it’ll be completed in 2-3 months if they submit topics daily like now.

  10. hi… i have query does you channel provides mind maps or anthropology notes…i would like to join can i know the details weather it is a mind maps or detailed notes

    1. Yes. This is the page where you can find the anthro notes. They are in-depth notes in mindmap format for big-picture understanding and quick revision.

  11. Hi, how many more day’s it will take to complete syllabus? Is the topics are getting uploaded on daily basis till now?

  12. hi, any estimate upto when course would be completed…please give an estimate so that we can plan accordingly.
    thanks for all the mindmaps :)

  13. In Anthropology, paper 1 under 2.4 Family, Mindmap of ‘Functions of Family’ has Mindmap of ‘Types of Family’.
    Please rectify it.

  14. Anthropology paper 1
    Chapter 2 (family)
    Impact of urbanization, industrialization and feminist movement on family..
    Topic information not found , showing kinship introduction..plz rectify it

  15. hello sir, at least in paper 1 there are few topics in between the completed topics which are not completed , please first complete them it would be helpful in flow and secondly, can we expect the paper 2 to be completed by april end?

  16. sir, in paper 1, topic 2.4 ( subtopic effect of urbanization ) and topic 2.5(subtopic forms of decent group ) are not there ,some other mind map is inside these topics, please rectify, its very urgent

  17. In section 1.2 relationship with life science, medical science, earth science, behavioral science is missing. Is it not relevant for the exam?

    1. hi there. it was a conscious decision to skip those topics, so that we could finish other topics, as the above-said topics are not very important from exam perspective. you could see the previous years’ question papers and can realize this fact. the social sciences part is important and we covered it extensively. But we’ll cover those left-over topics after everything is over. rest assured. thank you. good luck.

  18.  linguistic elements in the Indian population and their distribution in Optional 2, Chapter 2, is not updated correctly. It points again to the Ethnic elements in Indian population.
    Could you please check it.

  19. Could you please bit expedite the update. Till now in Optional 2 many topics are incomplete.
    Thank you so much for preparing it.

  20. Hello Is syllabus of anthropology finished ? If not may I know what’s are the topics left out

    1. It’ll be completed in a month. Topics with hyperlinks (red colour) are completed, topics without hyperlinks (black colour) are yet to be uploaded.

  21. In paper 2, section 1.3 Ethno archaeology in India, Survivals and parallels are not opening. Have you not added it?

      1. Survival parallels have no case studies explaining specific hunting and foraging, pastoralism, fishing, peasants including arts and crafts. You have provided only general features. I would like to talk to someone on call to get a clear understanding. I have been struggling on this since a day. Thank You

        1. wrt parallels cultural parallels as we know are culture having similar cultural characteristics so we discussed common characteristics of each economic system and examples across world
          wrt survivals we did provide case studies dealing ethnoarchaeology studies wrt bead making pottery making swidden agriculture.pls look into survivals topic for ethnoarchaeology studies and not parallels mindmap
          thank you

  22. hello sir. are you providing written notes?? or only mind map? please let me know. thank you

    1. We provide in-depth written notes in the format of mindmap for easier learning/revision due to the hierarchial nature of the mindmap that gives a particular shape to the concept you study.
