How to approach the Essay topic in UPSC Exam Essay paper

Let us consider the first topic in section A-

“Life is a long journey between human being and being humane”

I will use the techniques listed in my book the Ultimate Cheatbook of Essay & Answer-writing to demonstrate the steps involved in arriving at an essay for the selected topic. It is hoped that this will be beneficial for readers of the book and for those who are curious about it’s contents.

Pre-writing for UPSC Mains 2020-21 Essay topic ‘“Life is a long journey between human being and being humane”

Rough work for upsc mains 2020 essay

Right off the bat, I use the Deconstruction technique and notice that the essay topic is fundamentally about 2 things- i:e ‘ human being’ and ‘being humane’. So Thing 1 is ‘Human Being’ and Thing 2 is ‘Being humane’.

As I deconstruct the relationship between T1 and T2, I realize that the relationship between T1 and T 2 is that one of them is supposedly the culmination of the other across the journey of life.

Deconstruction technique for Essay argument generation

I made a note of this relationship (R) between T1 and T2 without imputing any judgements or jumping to pre-conceived notions about what it all means. I then use STRUCUTRED BRAINSTORMING techniques to generate some points about T1 and T2 as illustrated in my Rough-work sheet below-

upsc mains 2020 essay brainstorming
Structured Brainstorming, 4Q method and 12 QC cheat code demonstrated

I use the 12QC technique to generate these points which helps me activate the relevant networks of my knowledge network in order to obtain the best ideas. I then highlight negative and positive sounding words as suggested by Structured Brainstorming and 12 QC techniques. This makes me realize that this essay topic crisscrosses over many debates and issues such as Biology, environment, psychology, Ethics etc.

The next step was to understand the essay topic right down to its core. So I drilled down into the relationship between T1 and T2 using the 4Q method. This gave me a deeper insight about the various dimensions to be covered while addressing the essay topic about ‘being human’ and ‘being humane’.

I realized that this topic is essentially another variation of an age-old debate between Biology and Ethics. It also undercuts the debate between lifespan development and the evolution of Ethical behavior in humans since the Relationship(R) speaks of life as a journey from being human to being humane. I note these keywords under T1 and T2 for use later on.

This is where the ESSELGO (Essay Generation Algorithm) method is introduced. The ESSELGO is a powerful and universal template for tackling virtually any essay topic under the sun. As a side note, ALL the essay topics in the UPSC Mains 2020 Essay paper can be deconstructed in to T1 and T2 perfectly and beautifully written about using the ESSELGO method.

I begin by using the 4Q2 method to construct an impactful introduction and make a schematic for the same in the Rough work space. Here, I make sure to gain clarity about the crux of the essay topic and begin to give my arguments some structure.

The listed keywords provide a lot of content ideas and insights about the topic which I listed under the appropriate category on the right side of the page which constitutes the IRW (Intelligent Rough Work) technique for pre-writing and Rough-work as shown in the image below.

Rough Work and Pre-writing using the ESSELGO and related techniques for UPSC Essay topic 2020 2021

Next, I move on to generating points and arguments using the BGInS Cheat Code as prescribed by the ESSELGO method. To do this, I use the keywords generated during Structured Brainstorming which proved quite helpful in covering the various dimensions associated with this topic. These arguments and points provide further structure to the body of the essay which I will use while writing the main essay.

The ESSELGO and BGInS method inspired in my mind, a good way to structure this essay. Which would be to talk about what happens when human beings are not humane and then to talk about what happens when they are, to contrast the resulting worlds from these 2 value-stance and then conclude with a way forward.

After extensive use of BGInS and various other Cheatcodes, I use the SCoReF method to produce a positive and optimistic conclusion about the future and highlight the mechanisms which can be used to resolve the issue between human-ness and humane-ness before putting the debate to rest.

Here is the resultant final essay borne out of all the above:

———————————————————————————-

LIFE IS A LONG JOURNEY BETWEEN HUMAN BEING AND BEING HUMANE

The ‘wise ape’ or homo sapiens as human beings are appropriately called are complex creatures. This is because to be a human being means much more than being a biological species amongst other species of organic life. To be a human being means to be a biological, social, economic, emotional, spiritual and a moral being simultaneously.

However while all humans are morally responsible agents, not all humans are humane beings which implies correct moral action and motive on behalf of the agent. A humane being, therefore, is a morally-driven being which is not always the case with homo sapiens.

It is no coincidence that most if not all major religions of the world have stressed upon the primacy of ethical behavior. From the theory of Karma entrenched in Hinduism and Buddhism, to the idea of forgiveness and compassion of Christ, the message is simple and clear- Be good to one another. Be more than human and strive to be humane. This message is strikingly relevant for today’s world given the supremacy of homo sapiens as the most dominant and impactful species on the planet. The fate of humanity and the planet may rest upon it.

Altruism and Compassion

Human beings possess a tremendous latitude of behavioral potential. Which is to say that they are moldable and flexible creatures capable of achieving god-like feats but equally capable of perpetrating great evil.

During World War 2, 6 million Jews were persecuted and systematically murdered in death factories, the most infamous of which is the Auschwitz concentration camps. Here, Jews were kept prisoner, robbed of their dignity and their lives by another group of homo sapiens who believed themselves to be superior. This incident remains forever embedded in our collective history as the most inhumane and terrible of episodes which demonstrates the potential of humans to be morally abhorrent beyond imagination. It stands as a testament to what happens when human beings fail to be humane beings.

The horror of lack of humane-ness : Victims of a Concentration camp

The Anthropocene is the current era in Earth’s evolution according to geologists and climate scientists meaning the era of humanity’s impact. This means that the human civilization is impacting every aspect of the planets life-system immensely whether positively, negatively or consciously and unconsciously. Scientists estimate that human beings are responsible for the extinction of thousands of species and severe climate change which threatens the survival of countless other surviving species.

The Anthropocene- the epoch of human impact on the planet

The rate at which Carbon emissions have increased resulting in an unprecedented increase in Global temperatures suggests that the impact of human beings on the planet will be severe not only for other species but for the future generations of human beings themselves. As the generation of people capable of stopping or reversing cataclysmic climate change, it befalls on the humans alive today to accept moral responsibility of their actions or inactions.

upsc essay mains analysis climatechange
A sculpture titled -‘ Politicians discussing Climate Change’

Despite of strong evidence to the dangers of climate change, world leaders and governments have failed to cooperate and take swift action. This inexplicable lack of motivation in the face of certain destruction, proves that intelligence alone is insufficient for survival or prosperity.

Despite it all, there are exemplars of ethical behavior amongst the species who are revered as saints for their selfless actions- Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, The Dalai lama to name a few. This proves beyond doubt that humans possess the potential to achieve exceptional levels of morality and compassion.

It follows that when human-ness and humane-ness combine in optimal proportions is when the most remarkable achievements of humans have come to be. These include godly feats such as splitting the atom, travelling through space, landing on the moon and uncovering the genetic code of life itself. The laws of physics determine how electrons are transmitted through power lines just as well as how much energy a 100 Megaton nuclear warhead will release upon explosion. These fundamental laws are known to humans and this knowledge gives them enormous but terrifying power. The knowledge of nuclear physics wrought the atomic bomb but also the Information revolution which has reshaped the world as we know it. The way in which this knowledge is used is what differentiates the merely human from the humane.

Humans have tremendous intelligence and power

To be humane is to go beyond one’s limited ego-mind driven by short-term self-interests. The human being therefore, must do better and strive to become a humane being as a matter of survival, not merely as a matter of choice. Ethical behavior is not optional.

For the individual human being however, the journey to becoming humane is tempered by many factors and is not a one-time choice. Most factors which determine the ethical make-up of a person are strongly contingent upon their external circumstances such as ethical education, culture, role models and life experiences. The psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg’s stages of moral development lends strong support to the thesis that moral development or the journey from human to humane, is a life-long process. Being humane involves going through multiple stages or challenges where a child’s sense of right or wrong evolves towards more sophisticated as their intelligence and maturity grows. This process is overshadowed by the culture and overall milieu in which the child is reared.

Children go through stages of moral development in life’s journey

What this implies is that morality is not set in stone. This is cause for jubilation and hope because that humans can use their intelligence to make themselves more compassionate, ethical and happier as a species. Humane-ness is teachable and learnable.

On the scale of individuals, the effort towards large scale change from human-ness to humane-ness must begin with the child’s developmental process where moral education should be imparted intelligently. Parents, schools and educational organizations should serve as playgrounds for ethical coaching and tutoring. A safe haven for the fruitful resolution of Kohlberg’s stages of moral development for the child until the highest stages of moral reasoning are achieved.

upsc essay image
A sustainable world built on humane foundations

On the scale of communities and larger populations, insights from the field of Psychology and Behavioral Economics offer usable and actionable prescriptions for large scale behavior change. One such suggestion derived from research being that pledges, commitments and formal declarations of ethical conduct should be increased. This is because once formally committed, humans experience cognitive dissonance in not following through or breaking a promise made, thereby increasing the likelihood of ethical behavior. Similar research backed insights coupled with technological outreach have the potential for transforming entire communities of human beings into a global race of humane beings.

A global race of humane beings

Homo sapiens are unique in that they alone have the mechanisms and potential to transcend their primal monkey-nature. They alone can access higher realm of values which include all living beings as being connected in a unity. And the realization that it is not intelligence but compassion which is fundamental to being human.

There is no human without the humane and life’s journey is an opportunity for every individual to discover this fundamental truth for themselves.

Debriefing and analysis:

The entire pre-writing/Rough work process took me about 30 minutes (including a bit of color-coding for your understanding). The final essay which followed, ended up being written in approximately 1 hour and has a word count of exactly 1169 words which is ideal for the UPSC Mains Essay paper. (Admittedly, I typed it whereas you would have had to write it on paper in the exam.Typing allowed me some editing and corrections but the quality of writing would probably have remained similar on paper vs keyboard)

The images have been interspersed to aid in your understanding of the various dimensions of the topic and to help you grasp the narrative of my arguments.

I hope this was beneficial to readers of the Ultimate Cheatbook who’ve been asking for this type of write-up as well for those who are curious about Essay-writing for the UPSC Mains Essay paper in general.

ASSIGNMENT: Post your comments on the following lines in 200 words or less.

  • What do  you observe about the structure of this Essay? Does it seem to follow some kind of sequential structure? What could it be?
  • How are the arguments structured? What effect does this have on the reader?
  • How is language used to create impact? Notice points of maximum impact.
  • Are analogies used? What effect did they have on you, the reader?

  • How does the Essay maintain flow while reading?
  • What did you learn from this Essay which you could use in your own?
  • Is the Essay balanced in it’s opinions and arguments? What must you NOT do to disrupt this balance in your own essays?

This assignment is not me offering you a model essay to emulate. It is me putting myself in your shoes and going through the same motions, techniques and steps which you would and sharing my thought process along the way.

You may choose to approach the Essay in a different way. The valuable thing here is to pay close attention to how the Pre-writing leads to the final UPSC essay and to pick up useful insights where you can.

Tc, stay healthy and all the best for your preparations

    My takeaways: concentrate on flow of structure, giving more examples and arguments, practice more essays.

  2. The structure of essay included 4Q2 method for introduction, BGInS for conclusion. Though the Indian element was not specifically included, the mentions of hinduism, buddhism, Mahatma Gandhi, concept of karma covered for it.
    The arguments are structured in a very logical fashion. BGInS was followed through holocaust, examples of mother theresa, ethical education of children. The language used is very deft. For example, “To be humane is to go beyond one’s limited ego-mind driven by short-term self-interests”- such sentences dove point home.
    Analogies of aushwitz camp to represent evil, Kohlberg’s stages of moral development for ethical education were very impactful.
    Examples and facts are used extensively. In addition to those mentioned above,  “splitting the atom, travelling through space, landing on the moon and uncovering the genetic code of life itself”, “Laws of physics on how electron moves” are some other examples used.
    The essay also had a great flow which culminated in a good conclusion.
    My takeaways are how keywords were used with BGInS, how the beauty of language can be used to enhance these ideas in prewriting.
    The essay was very balanced. Careful brainstorming in prewriting that includes multiple dimensions goes a long way in maintaining the balance.

  3. • This essay is well structured through three broad components- Introduction, body and Conclusion/ Way forward.

The body of the Essay is multidimensional, it discusses ethical, spiritual, historical, geographical and psychological aspects of the given topic. Such structuring of the arguments makes reader believe that the writer has holistic understanding of the topic.
    • Language is lucid and yet impactful. For instance – “This inexplicable lack of motivation in the face of certain destruction, proves that intelligence alone is insufficient for survival or prosperity.” “To be a human being means to be a biological, social, economic, emotional, spiritual and a moral being simultaneously.”
    • Yes, analogies have been used and they have made the explanation comprehensive as well as unique.

What I loved about the language was that the language is used in simpler form hence comprehending the esaay is easier. As a reader I can see that the content is prioritised over the language. When I wrote the essay on the same topics, I remember I didn’t complete my examples and facts very well, which I realised only when I sat back with my essay after the assignment. There were so many good examples but I was unable to embrace it wholly and hence my reader may not have understood the point I was trying to make and that was one of the feedbacks on my essay.

    Appropriate amount of facts & examples has been used which is helpful to understand the fact in clean and clear sense, and where it effect negatively and some where positively.

    The flow of the essay is superb but I confused when I mention negative point and when positive point so that it reflect the favor and against to the topic in appropriate manner because I can’t make clarity where and how you have done this.

    satisfied when you become truly humane being in exact sense.

    The essay was totally balanced in its opinion and argument.

  23. Optimal use of said techniques and cheat codes applied here for structured and multi dimensional essay writing, like you do. Coherent and lucid arguments covering wise aspects of HumanNess. I noticed in order to deliver the best you must pre-write and conceptually keyword the core of the issue, so to resolute if possible. You designed your essay with rich interconnecting networks of knowledge points with appropriate analogies of various subject matter. Include past-present relevant events in a contemporary style so to fulfill the need of inclusive writing. And must balance the contentious topic by articulating the experience of critically examining the topic effectively and thorough impactful argumentation, that creates a impressions in the readers mind about your text. I learned a lot about the low hanging fruits which I surely can bear with Practice and guidance.
    And thank you very much sir for your immensely valuable effort.

  24. Here are my observations:
    -The introduction is really powerful in which the author has established relationship between the ask in the topics and elaborating it.
    -In the body part the author has talked about religion and its connection with Being human . Also examples have been incorporated with respect to society during world war 2, from the geographical perspective ,biological perspective. Four to five examples has been used here
    -Arguments are based on the contrast showing what human being has done or is doing which is wrong and how the trait of being humane has done good in the world.
    -The usage of powerful one-liner sentences is statement in itself .
    -Quoting actual user adds weightage to the essay for sure.
    -Impactful words is a good way of making your point stand out.
    -However I felt that there are some sentences which are not clear enough

    “Being humane involves going through multiple stages or challenges where a child’s sense of right or wrong evolves towards more sophisticated as their intelligence and maturity grows. This process is overshadowed by the culture and overall milieu in which the child is reared”

    What you mean by sophistication , could mean something else for me and I think that needs explanation here. Also I think the second sentence should be the process has overshadowed the culture. Not sure if that is what is meant here

    – Thank you for sharing the essay. I really enjoyed reading it and learned a lot!

Next is about how combination and disruption of human and humane affect world. Further it shows view of psychologist. And in the last it has a conclusion of an essay.

    Yes, essay is perfectly balanced in its opinion. It covers global views. So, I will try to expand my view and thoughts which focus on worldwide occurrence instead of local issues.

    7. Yes, the essay is very much balanced in its approach and equally balances views on both the FOR and AGAINST. Instead of taking a stand on any one side, giving a wider view and trying to cover all possible dimensions can lead to a better-balanced essay.

  34. The entire essay deals with things more on the moral, ethical, spiritual side the challenge is to take the reader on a journey on the said aspects by using examples and analogies that are simple yet impactful and structuring it in a way that would not disturb the overall theme

    The introduction itself makes clever use of the point of views obtained from the brainstorming techniques and it becomes the basement for the arguments and analogies that will be followed

    Overall flow of the essay tells the transition of humane beings into humane beings which is the crux of the question and this is done by breaking down the argument and providing analogies based on real time historical examples thus creating a way to insert the STEPPE Dimension without disturbing flow. Use of Auschwitz incident, environmental issues are examples that are simple yet very impactful to the topic.

    These examples were focused on the negative side of the argument now a transition has to happen to make the leap from negative to the positive aspect, this was done to maintain the flow and also to make it pleasurable and inviting for the reader. An abrupt transition can be made but this idea is more refined and it helps the reader connect with the writer.

    Then comes the positive aspect, again the STEPPE method used in the introduction was elaborated. The entire essay is structured in to stay close to the topic quite literally.

    Pre writing and the use of all the cheat codes will basically give structure to the essay, examples must be given in a way that would supplement the structure and not use of simple example might give this effect

    The key takeaway for me is pre writing and mastering the techniques that were taught, structure and overall flow is the part I am weak at

    How not to make it balanced – One must not stereotype or target a particular group / sect to keep it balanced. for ex – one must not write that During WW2 the German race was inhumane in killing the Jews. It was not the entire races fault , rather Nazis fault. Targeting & stereotyping or showing your own bias & prejudices will make it unbalanced.

  42. My observations of the essay:
    1. Yes it has structure. In fact more structure than I could imagine.
    2. This is the structure which I could observe:-
    a. Using the 4Q2 method, you made an impactful introduction. Here you first described human beings not just as a biological species, but the other finer details of how we are different than others. Then taking the line of morality you cued in the meaning of humane being.
    b. Having established both things (1 and 2). You describe how its relationship is ideal and not true in all situations. In doing this, I believe the stage is set as to why both of these things are to be handled in the essay.
    c. Prior to this you exercised the 12Q method to get whatever relevant data for a 360 degree approach. Once you had it on paper, now you decided the structure and order of the ideas.
    d. You begin with marvelling at how different religious concepts have captured this idea of humane-ness. Then the positive things were attributed, followed by negative ones.
    e. Which was summed up by the fact that there must be a balance between this human being and being humane.
    f. You brought in proofs and observations as seen by psychology and proposed that it can be taught, and how so too.
    g. This was concluded with the idea of sustainable development and that the stages of human emotion development happens throughout life and that is the journey which was provided for elaboration.
    3. Each idea has been presented with an example. One example in the negative thing, in context of India which I would have added was the caste discrimination still prevalent in our society. Would that be a good idea?
    4. “Either you plan or plan to fail”, as Benjamin Franklin had said. That is exactly what I learnt from your essay. That a decent order must be maintained for the ease of examiner.
    5. In order to not disrupt the flow, I must never jumble one example after the other. It shows vision without direction. Thus planning what to write one after the other is the most important thing in a pen-paper exam as my chances of editing are nil. Plus too many criss-cross does leave a bad impact.

  43. The essay is very well structured which include all the points like introduction ,body of the essay and conclusion. It is very informative and include all the aspect like psychology ,history which make it more interesting to read. The T1 and T2 are very beautifully identified and all the 12QC are answered before writing the essay. The language is very simple and crisp so, that everyone can understand it properly. The point of maximum impact are 1)No human without the humane 2)Ego-mind driven by short term and self interests. 3)Human being posses tremendous latitude behavioral potential. They are capable of achieving god like feat but equally of perpetration great evils. There are many facts and examples has been used like Victims of a concentration camp, The Anthropocene, Sculpture titled etc. I essay flow is very good and interesting Things I got from this essay
    1)Simple language can be used to write great essays.
    2)Many points and examples must be given in an essay.
    3)We should interlink the different point mention in the essay.
    4)I need to read a lot to write such essay

  44. The essay was written in well structured as it provides introduction, conclusion, and the body of the essay was written in various dimension like it says about Homosapaines, about kolberys, psychology, economic and 12QC technique was used and the language was written in simple and well understood. It provides good examples such as ww2 incident in Jews and the fact about people like mother Theresa , mahatma Gandhi were used and the essay flow was good and it feels enjoyable to read the essay.
    What I learnt from the essay was I should write the essay in various dimension and should write in simple language so the reader can understand and I think the essay is balanced well from my view point.

  45. The essay follow a proper structure in the form of intro, body, then negative and the positive aspect and lastly a motivating and positive conclusion.

    Arguments are very well defined touching a wide range of examples. it makes the reader touch all the possible zones of interlinking human and humane.

    Language is very easy and impactful. From this, I learnt that with easy languages also one can write a creative and impactful essay.

    There are analogies like great noble people eg like Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and on the other side eg of hitler camp but I feel there is some scope of adding few.

    I’m totally tensed and worried about my writing way by seeing at your immense examples. There are so relatable with my optional still I never thought of using them is such way. Hats off, Sir.

    I don’t know any amazing word other then perfect to describe the flow of this essay. It’s just flowing like a peaceful water.

    Firstly, I learnt that with simple language also one can write a great essay.
    Secondly, the way arguments are put forward with the apt examples.
    Thirdly, interlinking of many subjects like history, anthropology, polity.
    We can use many examples from other subjects. This also shows our concept clarity.

    The essay was totally balanced in all aspect. In my essay I feel that sometimes there is no flow, all of sudden a new topic or example pops up. So, I understand that one should maintain the proper flow to make it impactful.

  46. 1)The essay is well structured (has distinct: intro, body ,conclusion part). The body-part is further structured into: a)-ve of human b)+ve of human c)The analysis part with interlinkages b/w human-being and humane-being + current technology as example to substantiate the points d) suggestions (individual,community level)
    2)The arguments have been well-placed (there’s no intermixing of arguments). Reader (as I) had following impacts: Arguments stayed longer in memory till the end of passage , the conclusions were having linkages with arguments (easily discernible), it helped in knowing that “writer” has enough understanding of topic.
    3)Language used had multiple key-words and the words used had emotive-power. It was not easy to just do side-reading. There was lots of information …it was knowledge intensive writing .
    4)Yes analogies are used (eg: politician , environment etc depiction). It made the arguments much stronger and clearer .
    5)Many facts and examples are used … as is said: it was knowledge intensive essay(-ve side of human beings jews-incident , anthropocene, politicians , M Gandhi, M.Luther King , nuclear weapons , how human gets conditioned-its factors, the stages of knowledge MODEL and much more).
    6)Essay was well structured and there was cohesion b/w paragraphs . It maintained flow: as arguments were well-places in an orderly fashion .
    7)I personally never did full-essay practice till now. I have given many GS papers ,but not essay . I learned from essay that: we have to well explain each of our argument with lots of examples ……..To ESSELGO technique seems to work pretty good 🙂 .
    8)The essay is balanced (as it considers various dimentions and considers both sides of a coin and finally concludes with knowledge gained from those points).
    WHAT I SHOULD DO:—> TO BE CONFIDENT (at first) , to not repeat same arguments, build structure of body(prior) and consider all dimensions of the essay .
    THANK YOU SIR 🙂

  47. The essay was simple to read, had easy to relate to common parlance examples as well as some extra knowledge which shows the effort put in.

    The arguments are structured highlighting the contrast between T1 and T2 and go from critique to positives, keeping a balanced approach.

    The language used is mostly simple, non flowery nor too abstract with some enriched vocabulary, which shows the writer is well read and wants to convey a message effectively.

    The points of maximum impact- examples where contrast is drawn on what happens when human beings are human vs non humane; a deduction from climate change inaction that intelligence alone is not the answer for prosperity or survival; non negotiables, scope for improvement etc.

    The analogies used like Prosecution of Jews makes the reader self reflect and question on the power of an individual and society to stand against wrong doing, populist decisions. Also the need for action to not let inhumanity prevail through proactive actions. The essay also weaves another identity of religious belief of karma and the need for compassion.

    Not a lot of facts or numbers are used however more examples have been used to clarify what the writer wants to say in a Elucidated fashion.

    In my view, Essay flow is mostly building up from a collective to individual level. In one paragraph the change seemed a bit abrupt, for most part the essay is woven well with seperate topics arranged neatly in paragraphs – climate change, Technology, Ethical behaviour factors, morality, solutions to promote and support the conclusion.

    I have learnt that a lot may be lost in translation, less is not more and brevity may not be as impactful as systematic brainstorming and weaving in the deconstructed ideas keeping in mind the reader.

    The Essay is balanced in it’s opinions as it has used contrast, rational arguments, detailed comparisons and examples to support why it is necessary to have humanity as a part of human beings and what happens without it.

    To not disrupt a similar balance in my essays, I find it imperative to practice everyday and read to learn how to build better structure and flow.

    *yes it balanced as it gave arguments and supporting examples for both postives and negative sides of human,For not disrupting one’s balance in essay arguments and counter arguments should be equally given and to maintain 360 approach for the topic

  49. 1. It start with a nice introductiom, followed by a body, which tends to prove several aspects of human nature like compassion, love, respect etc by providing various examples, it also talks these qualities on various sphers of human society and at the end, it ended with optimistic conclusion

    2. Arguments in the body of the essay, are structured to prove the essentiality of values in humans by providing various examples, and introspecting it on various spheres of life

    3. Use of examples like concentration camps, and lines like morality is not set in stones, provides a solid as well as Empathic touch to the essay

    4. Use of famous public figues like
    Dalai lama, Mahatma Gandhi has been uaed to show analogy of being humane

    5. To prove a certain point, certain facts and exmples has been used, like use of science in discovery of Information technology as well as creation of nuclear bombs provides a good contrast and proves a point of difference between using science by humane beings and non humane beings

    6. Flow is maintained by using connectors in the essay as well as breaking the essay in points to prove and then proving them one by one

    7. Maintaing flow, Providing information in Contrasting way to prove a certain point, Giving contemporary examples

    8. Yes, it seems balanced by providing sufficient points to prove our points, as well as giving contrasting examples to tell the reader the wrongs of not being humane, we must provide approximately equal points in bringing out both sides of the story, and then use it to prove our point
    Like giving example of people being humane and doing wonderful things for the society and also giving examples in which humans who didnot have values have done to the society (world war, concentration camps, nuclear bombs).

  50. Firstly, what a wow! I finished reading the essay even before I realised!
    1. The way essay transitioned from importance to being humane at macro level ( Planet) to micro level ( child) is brilliant.
    2. Each argument is backed by a strong example i.e it is of unquestionable nature. It compels the examiner to agree with the argument.
    3. Language used is simple yet strong. For example, use of sentences like ” Be good to one another” ” Ethical behaviour is not optional” They seem so simple but they make way into the depths of one’s conscience.
    4. Didn’t feel like I came across any impactful analogy.
    5. Holocaust, Anthropocene , Climate change were used to highlight the impact of humans on the planet and the need to be humane. But, the impressive was the reference to psychologist Lawerence Kohlberg’s stages of moral development.
    6. Use of transition sentences at the end of paragraphs. For example, “…what happens when human beings fail to be humane.”
    7. Case study-like use of examples i.e Holocaust, not just a passing mention about it but elaborate details. It really adds value if one can find such strong examples.
    8. Pretty much balanced. Would have loved to see more emphasis on ” Life is a long journey..” part, a tad bit more. Nonetheless, one of the best essays I have read in my preparation.

    All the mentioned argument are arranged in such a way that holds the reader in surrounding the topic and help to relate all the given arguments perfectly related to the crux of the topic .

    Language and choosen keyword are really impactfull , anthropocene, altruism and compassion these are amazingly used to show relationship of T1 and T2.

    I liked all the parallelism (gandhi, teresa, Luther King and lama)are used in the essay to show the human with proper balanced humane-ness.

    All the examples are sufficiently used to describe the crux of given topic . It made me travel from religious values to modern value of humane in life journey of human in all respect (both negative and positive).

    8. yes it does, if we aren’t aware about deconstruction and other techniques used in this essay then we won’t get the same flow and proper structure without 12QC and BGnIS.

    thank you sir, and please correct me. if I am wrong.

  55. The essay has a very organized and balanced structure. Starting from classification into T1 and T2, it also carefully treads on the deconstruction technique, followed by ESSELGO.
    The introduction is simple and subtle. In the starting itself, it talks about the relation between T1 and T2. Yet, it also draws the reader into taking interest in the essay. Even the rest of the paragraphs each talk about different things so as not to confuse the reader and have a structured flow of thoughts.
    The language used is simple and lucid. The writer has not used complex words that may confuse except in some places, where it has added weight to the argument presented by the writer. This makes it easy for me as a reader to understand what is being conveyed.
    Yes, the writer has used excellent analogies to put his point. Examples of real people for humaneness has enhanced the essay. It allows the reader to imagine clearly the difference and the connection between human beings and being humane.
    Just the right amount of facts and examples have been used so that the reader also enjoys reading the essay, yet not so many that it appears like a verbal scrapbook.
    The essay maintains a proper flow as it does not delve much into the negative and rather focuses on the positive aspects. The conclusion is also drawn upon an optimistic and futuristic approach.
    I learnt that I must not deviate from the topic that I have chosen. I also learnt to keep the language lucid and to use an appropriate amount of analogies. I will try to keep my essay as positive, futuristic, and precise as I can, and that will be possible with a lot of practice.
    Yes, I think the essay is balanced in its opinions and arguments. To not disrupt the flow of the essay, it is essential that we do not deviate from the topic and keep it to the point. We must also not delve too deep into the negative aspects if any.

    P.S. Sir, in the pictures of the notes, provided above, the handwriting at places is a bit illegible which makes it difficult at times to comprehend what is written. It could be easier it is in a digitized or typed format.

  56. I have observed the following points –
    The flow of the essay is as per the lessons which we have learnt earlier
    Simple language
    Crisp and to the point arguments
    Not much analogies are used
    Decent knowledge over the topic is needed in order to comprehend it in various points of view so that we can get more examples to write
    Overall a well balanced Essay

  57. The structure of this essay is as per matrix box which we learnt in last session. Topic is distributed in words and relationship between those words. Each divided word contained mini topics in itself. Prsctical examples are also explained in this essay. 4 examples in past events and current scene also mentioned in this essay. Need of this topic in the past as well as in future is explained very well. This whole essay show the positive attitude towards the topic.

  58. My answers and understanding for the questions asked:-
    The structure of the essay => the writer has followed all the rules that were mentioned and taught to us. The writer has followed a structured and schematic pathway for representation with proper spacing between the paragraphs. And, also has talked about the crux of the essay in the main body of the essay. the writer has also mentioned the same in brief in the introduction as well. These were done with the help of deconstruction, 12QC, and 4Q methods. This is my understanding now, further on from here the writer has used the remaining rules in the right manner to explain the body of the essay in a structured manner with the usage of simple and meaningful text/language.
    The arguments are structured in a systematic way that covers the history, the evolution of the essay in different stages of time post history, and ending with a simple conclusion; since it’s structured in a proper way it has a positive effect on the reader with no confusions, as simple texts are used the reader will have ease for reading and would just go with the flow.
    Yes, analogies are used. The made analogies are differentiated properly by the writer, also tells how they are connected – which makes it meaningful for the reader.
    8 facts with examples have been used for proper understanding of the subject by the writer with the inclusion of the conclusion. As a reader, it gave me insights into the positives and negatives/repercussions of the essay. Each and every fact and example used by the writer is connected and narrows down to the aesthetic values/senses of “unity, discipline, peace, compassion and being humane.”
    What I, have learned =>Differentiation of the essay into the main structure of introduction, main body, and conclusion by using the rules mentioned in the teachings.
    => The internal differentiation/division of topics and club them together to form paragraphs for a meaningful essay, such that it is feasible for the reader/examiner to read.
    => Also, apply the knowledge in real life when needed.
    Yes, the essay is balanced in its opinions and arguments. One must not get personal and must not go away from the topic concerned and also should not overwrite(rather must be crisp to the best of capacity).

  59. I READ THE ABOVE MENTIONED ESSAY …It is amazing and finely structured in same way which I seen in earlier lessons and assignment for intro , main body and conclusion via deconstruction , brainstorming etc.

    This essay is really a mirror which show my level of understanding together with thought and writing.
    Frankly speaking I am not in position to judge is it balanced in it’s opinion and argument or not.?

    In single word I can only say it is अद्भुत।

    Way Forward
    Conclusion (Agreement)

Also beautifully toches spiritual, emotional parts with how relationship can become a evil and rescuer at same time (when I thought about this topic before I didn’t thought about this topic like that especially global warming,nuclear power,hitler etc..I ended up only with spiritual part whith less example).Flow of essay is best one explaining every dimensions one by one..

  74. 1. The essay is well structured followed the right balanced between the T1 & T2, from the very basic introduction but with the powerful & effective words, covered all the aspects of the topic (behavioural pattern & potential, human impact positive and negative both, sustainable development) with great examples and current events.
    2. All the arguments are to the point and directly hitting the relationship between the T1 & T2 and wider in nature. It is covering all the aspects which needs to be highlighted like the impact of human being on this planet as they are capable enough to make this planet hell and heaven both and also recalling some of the past incidents of the human being.

    8. The essay maintains the perfect balanced between both T1 & T2, the facts were precise and clearly indicating the relationship and difference between both. I think we should not need to be think emotionally by taking one side only, need to strike the balance between for & against both in the essay.

  75. I observed point of view and included core of topic secondly relation with other topics. It follow sequences according to T1 & T2
    Definitely it gonna prove to reader is writter having courage & knowledge about topic.

    Thank you sir for helping me in imp side

  76. 1.The structure of the essay has a brilliant flow but I have a confusion that of course it is divided in 14 paragraph i.e. 14 points but each are divided in unequal size some paras are discussed in approx. in 4 lines and some less than 4 line and finally more than 4 line means each are having different size and number of words not equally divided , so tell me how I can also do this while writing essay or in answer writing questions ?
    2. I noticed that the arguments regarding this topic are more in favor and describe its importance I hardly find out some against to the topic (as discussed about the concentration camp , impact on climate that’s what I understand that’s a global warming ) which make conclusion that it can be mention more favor in comparison of against to the topic.
    Is it necessary that we can also mention this thing(more favor less against regarding the topic) in our essay writing answers ?
    3. The impact what I feel while reading is that it highlight the importance of being humane is why & how much necessary that can bring new generation into new positive thoughts of life that they understood the values of being humane etc.
    4. Regarding the analogy I found many similarities and few of not because the things are taken into considerations are seems to be very close and synonymous as well , & of course make a positive impact on reader.
    5. Appropriate amount of facts & examples has been used which is helpful to understand the fact in clean and clear sense , and where it effect negatively and some where positively.
    6. The flow of the essay is superb but I confused when I mention negative point and when positive point so that it reflect the favor and against to the topic in appropriate manner because I can’t make clarity where and how you have done this .
    7. Being human then will be satisfied when you become truly humane being in exact sense.
    8. I have discussed above only that I found more favor or say importance then against , it is really hard to me to make equal comparison of favor and against to the topic .

  77. 1.The structure of the essay is balanced and took view of all aspects including anthropogenic factors.

  80. Structure of the essay is very continuous and balanced, the flow of the essay covered various aspects like Spiritual, philosophical, moral, biological, psychological, practical, economical respectively in the paragraphs of the essay. The vocabulary used is very apt and choosy. The use of the Jews situation has shown the adverse affect of not being humane and also quoted great personalities like Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa who are replicas of being humane. The analogies of more carbon emission for global degradation and thesis of Lawrence Kohlberg to explain the psychological aspect are very relatable. In this essay 5 examples are used to explain the difference between human being and being humane. The main point I want to carryforward into my essay writing is, the balance that is covering all aspects which are mentioned above which makes the essay complete. According to me, I feel the essay is complete but couldn’t catch the points in the first reading and to not disrupt the essay, the points chosen to write must not deviate from the main topic and have focus around the topic itself.

  81. 1) The essay follows a set structure which feels like a tailored fit around the theme/topic.
    2) The arguments feel like a tennis match with to and fro exchange of arguments between human-ness and humane-ness.
    How is language used to create impact? Notice points of maximum impact.
    3) Language is colloquial mostly with occasional backing of technical keywords to support the argument. The Auschwitz example stood out.
    4) Analogies felt like an extension of plain words to emphasize the point.
    5) Facts were a few and aptly used as it wasn’t a typical fact based topic.
    6) Essay maintained a swift flow.
    What did you learn from this Essay which you will use in your own?
    7) Pre – writing and tools used were reflected in writing as they seemed to have driven the writing. In a time bound competitive exam this can prove to be vital.
    Is the Essay balanced in it’s opinions and arguments? What must you NOT do to disrupt this balance in your own essays?
    8) The essay was written as such that it never got skewed towards one point. I would adopt this method along with keeping emotions in check while writing it.

    End note: Given my exposure to reading I felt that this work wasn’t as creative of a work as it could be if written freely i.e without scores attached to it. I came across certain examples as i read on, ( I would have inserted some stories of humane-ness from the concentration camps; Viktor E. Frankl helping fellow inmates out). All in all it teased me to start writing again. Thank you sir for this program, this is definitely helping.

    • “Pre – writing and tools used were reflected in writing as they seemed to have driven the writing. In a time bound competitive exam this can prove to be vital.” That is a good takeaway.
      Use it and practice.
      Good luck.

  90. “LIFE IS A LONG JOURNEY BETWEEN HUMAN BEING AND BEING HUMANE”
    Human beings are most intelligent and capable species on earth as compared to other living beings. Human beings have ability and capability to understand, analyse and evaluate. However being humane or being generous is far more essential in all stages of life. A conscious mind shapes one’s personality and makes life’s easier then mere confusions and havocs in surrounding. Being humane isn’t a easier task as it is affected by various factors like culture, role model, traditions, religion conflicts etc. To be humane one must set itself free from unwanted thoughts and has to go through multiple stages or gain experiences in life.
    “From human being to being humane is a life long process” which can be attained by proper education and right knowledge, so that it develops a sense of responsibility and makes one humble to contribute to nation’s welfare along with the welfare of other beings.
