World History

Aspirant Forum presents the World History Section (GS-1) for the UPSC examinations. World History is a part of the General Studies Paper 1 (GS-1) of the IAS Mains Examination. If covered properly, this section can be a well scoring part of the paper.

This section will provide you various topics and articles on different subjects, that are important from the examination point of view. While we try to put online every article possible, as soon as we can, it would be a pleasure to conduct a healthy discussion on  the forum about the topics.

Members can put in their views and perspectives on the issues and thus contribute to a healthy scholarly debate. We welcome the participation from anyone and everyone.

Keep following the blog for more updates and information.
