Time and again it has been proven: united we stand, divided we fall. And now, with less than a month for TISSNET, when we need to scan through our GK notes, year books, and delve deep into the internet world, we can do it together.

Post any social awareness topic/ question along with the answer. Open Discussions of various Topics. Seniors will always help us, they have been kind so far, and will be gracious enough to make us, their juniors,ready for the D-day.

PS: Let us not make this an admission-query thread. Let us keep it purely informative and intellectual.

Lets roll! {2013-2015 batches of TISS: We are here}

I start with an easy question:

The state attracting highest investment,both in domestic and foreign investments?


b)Tamil Nadu



TISS, this time, has an unpredictable format. I am most worried about:

@TISSian @gdm4u87 Please guide us regarding the direction in which we need to move. I mean, the topics and the type of questions we should follow.

We shall be really grateful.
@thePANDA Gujarat is the answer ain't it ! Not an option

@dashe It's Odisha. https://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&rct;=j&q;=&esrc;=s&source;=web&cd;=3&cad;=rja&sqi;=2&ved;=0CD4QFjAC&url;=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dnaindia.com%2Fmoney%2Freport_odisha-pips-gujarat-in-foreign-investment-race_1756748&ei;=NmvJUOzNDYuIrAeUkoFA&usg;=AFQjCNHiM5K9NBD0Fgv_Lo0RX4Iox3rk3w&sig2;=jmRHbCXo_kF9cAieRj0GKA&bvm;=bv.1355272958,d.bmk

more questions pandaji...
@thePANDA Won't public sector investment be considered under the domestic investment category ?

Why are there so few takers for this thread? It should be one of the busiest in Nov-Dec

Anyway, will there be HR-related questions this time round?
@Mattmurdock : I tried, but I am unable to do it alone. I have been very busy so I am unable to,lets say, promote this. But anyways, HR- related questions as in? There will be questions on social awareness. Basically on poverty,rural population, current progress in the social welfare schemes,etc. Hr related questions, I doubt. Seniors need to share info soon.
@thePANDA join here.

when will the admit cards arrive???
