I hope you are fine with your health and studies. Well you all will agree with me that in order to give your best shot at Civil Services Examination it is of prime importance to sustain your energy as well as interest in studies for an extended period. Those who succeed in achieving this usually come out with flying colors after the final result is published. Now rough part of this whole journey is that it becomes quite burdensome and irritating at times to mug up the books, notes or other materials at your disposal in course of your preparation. First of all it takes a hell lot of time to learn a new concept and without regular and systematic revisions most of it is rejected by our memory. Secondly entire process of preparation becomes cumbersome and insipid to a large extent. In addition to that exam pressure and lack of nerves further exacerbate the situation making everything messy. Here comes the savior!

What is GupChupJi Civils Academy
GupChupJi Civils Academy is the very first comics series (cartoon magazine) dedicated to the aspirants preparing for Civil Services Examination. It is certainly going to add joy in your preparation apart from entertaining and refreshing you. It is a scientifically proven fact that pictures last way longer in the memory as compared to texts. So this comics series will strengthen your photographic memory as far as exam related concepts are concerned. Many of you use charts/diagrams for revision so that you can retain a fair chunk of what you have studied with a high degree of accuracy, think about this comics series in that way. I give you a small example. Almost each one of you must have read comics in your childhood. To this date many of you can easily recall your favorite characters, their kaarnamas, rivals blah blah…Few of them like Nagraj, Dhruv, Baankelal, Tintin, Archies, Ram- Rahim etc. might be still fresh in your memories. But can you recall a single lesson read from your schoolbook in those days with similar degree of details? I bet numbers can be easily counted on fingers.
What all will be there in this comics series
To start off with it will contain issues related to current affairs important for the GS Section of Civil Services Examination. It’ll cover all the important points related to and necessary for that particular topic. Gradually it’ll start covering static part of the GS Section as well. Content will be updated as per feedback/input received from the readers. After all they have to get maximum benefit from this.

Can you tell us in brief about the team behind this project?
Well team consists of few innovative people some of them have been serious IAS aspirants themselves. Besides few top notch mentors are there for the supervision of content and quality. Cartoonist is a well known name in the industry, having worked with many national newspapers and magazines for more than 20 years.
I assume reading comics will no longer be considered a bad habit even for the adults after advent of GupChupJi Comics Series.
