Dealing with the GK demon

1. The first thing – read, read, read. Really, no substitute for this. Read the newspaper regularly, if you are not already doing that. This has multiple benefits – you develop your reading speed, better your vocab., and develop GK. Not only this, you keep this habit of reading with you even later – not only does it help you in various exams like UPSC and CAT later, but also makes your personality better, making you ready for debates and quizzes and making you aware of what’s going…

The Week That Was - Week 2 of March 2013

GK Gupshup - 2

1. Hate dentists? Pray that you are born as a turtle in your next birth. (Atheists, you are doomed. No second chance.) Turtles have no teeth.



2. Think bicycling is good exercise? Pschaw. Try the original. In 1817, the first bicycle was invented – and it didn’t have pedals. You had to walk it along. I bet Barob von Drais (the inventor) was a fitness freak.



3. COPRA – Consumer Protection Act. Imagine a giant cobra biting an evil shopkeeper.



Okay that’s…

GK Gupshup - 1

1. J.P. Morgan bailed out the US government in 1895. Turns out Uncle Sam isn’t always full.



2. Want to have kids who love to read? Move to Iceland. Iceland has more books written, read and sold than any other country.

2. Your mother made spinach for dinner. That feeling you just got? Hold it there. You ‘abhor’ spinach.
