Back to Blogger

Lest I cause any delay in writing a blog (having alibi of completing report backlogs), I should tell you all that I am back from my Bharat Darshan, and back same as I was………….almost.

I am safely back from the Naxal battlefield of Dantewada, from the machine gun firings on INS Kulish at Vishakhapatnam and back mesmerised from the SHG’s magic of Rajamundry.

I also happen to be back from the blasting mines of Singareni coalfields and the hitech city and changing face of India, Hyderabad.

Then I roamed in Bangalore, in Chitradurga and missed Hampi by a whisker. From there I touched the sand of Mariana beach in Chennai and got amazed by the beauty of Mahabalipuram.

Not to leave islands of India, I went to Andamans and floated on the absolutely clear waters of Havelock beach.

To match the distances of Andamans, I went to Assam and then to Arunanchal Pradesh, with the 2nd mountain Division of Army. Having almost completed my trip, I went to the Kaziranga National Park and spotted wildlife before returning to Delhi.

After all this I am back and back with a lot of stories…. or tales to tell, and that I shall tell in detail. So keep reading.

Are you still thinking why I wrote “I am back ‘almost’ same”?
Forgot to tell, got engaged on 10th feb :)

You left out the most important attachment ....... tea at my home ;-)

Anurag Srivastava said...

@vyas's blog: Since you see my blog, I think you might also have seen my blog about the civils, if you have not see them. If anyhing else remains you can mail me at

There are no rules, but its preferable to do second optional before prelims so that you can get time.

@shailesh: I hope my humour remains 'almost' the same even after marriage :)

@cosmic voices: Pardon me sir for the slip. I hope you shall again invite me soon and I assure you that it will make a complete blog :)

Hello Anurag, have been following your blogs since months! when i read about your chitradurga visit i couldnt stop myself from posting a comment. Its my hometown and i have visited it just once as no one lives there now.I will be giving my first attempt this may. Hope all turns out good and i get a chance to visit my hometown in bharat darshan!!
Your blogs are real motivators especially for aspirants like me.

Hi anurag,

'Sorry' - because my comment has no relevance to your post. I have a query regarding civil services preparation. Am aspiring for UPSC-2009. As a part of my strategy, am planning to study MAINS course material from Rau's IAS/ any other institute, for the next four months. It would be of great help if you can advise whether it is a right approach.
A reply will be highly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Anuraag,
This is the Very first time i am reading your BLOGs coz on the first instance they seems interesting, with simple english having no grammatical Jargon (i don'n know from where you are but you must be from one of the southernstates of india your writing style depicts this)
BUT after reading some of your blogs i have noticed that you write about those things only which relates to you in one or the other way.I didn't noticed any blog on international matters, matters which are purely political.
