It has been quite long since we published our Sunday diaries.As we publish our daily current events everyday, we do come across some cartoon or satire which are indeed thought provoking.

Last year we lost one such pioneer in the field – R.K.Laxman . There is no one at present who can generate more thoughts with a single stoke of a brush as he did.Writers write more than 1000 words to convey a message, but cartoonist/satirist just do it in tiny rectangular box of 8cm*5cm.

We do discuss some of the cartoons and their meanings at UPSCTREE, and today , we thought to publish it.Of course, without a doubt it will be of no help as far the UPSC exam is concerned, yet as you endeavor to become a significant authority in public service , it is worth the mention.Let us know what are your thoughts on this.

Here you go:-

A CSE study found Potassium Bromate, a possible carcinogen, and Potassium Iodate in bread samples. Potassium Iodate can affect thyroid function

Thousands of Indian doctors migrate to other countries every year, while many posts remain vacant in India 

With so many exemptions and VIPs refusing to use public transport, can the odd-even scheme be considered a success?

This has special reference in history too. Remember the most educated Mahammud bin Tughlaq and least educated Akbar and certainly we know who was a better administrator.

There are few which are more satirical and funny than the above ones but they are far too political in nature and we are aspiring to be apolitical public servants, so exercising self-restraint although they are more eye-turners.

 Good Night.

  • Darknet


    Darknet, also known as dark web or darknet market, refers to the part of the internet that is not indexed or accessible through traditional search engines. It is a network of private and encrypted websites that cannot be accessed through regular web browsers and requires special software and configuration to access.

    The darknet is often associated with illegal activities such as drug trafficking, weapon sales, and hacking services, although not all sites on the darknet are illegal.


    Examples of darknet markets include Silk Road, AlphaBay, and Dream Market, which were all shut down by law enforcement agencies in recent years.

    These marketplaces operate similarly to e-commerce websites, with vendors selling various illegal goods and services, such as drugs, counterfeit documents, and hacking tools, and buyers paying with cryptocurrency for their purchases.

    Pros :

    • Anonymity: Darknet allows users to communicate and transact with each other anonymously. Users can maintain their privacy and avoid being tracked by law enforcement agencies or other entities.
    • Access to Information: The darknet provides access to information and resources that may be otherwise unavailable or censored on the regular internet. This can include political or sensitive information that is not allowed to be disseminated through other channels.
    • Freedom of Speech: The darknet can be a platform for free speech, as users are able to express their opinions and ideas without fear of censorship or retribution.
    • Secure Communication: Darknet sites are encrypted, which means that communication between users is secure and cannot be intercepted by third parties.


    • Illegal Activities: Many darknet sites are associated with illegal activities, such as drug trafficking, weapon sales, and hacking services. Such activities can attract criminals and expose users to serious legal risks.
    • Scams: The darknet is a hotbed for scams, with many fake vendors and websites that aim to steal users’ personal information and cryptocurrency. The lack of regulation and oversight on the darknet means that users must be cautious when conducting transactions.
    • Security Risks: The use of the darknet can expose users to malware and other security risks, as many sites are not properly secured or monitored. Users may also be vulnerable to hacking or phishing attacks.
    • Stigma: The association of the darknet with illegal activities has created a stigma that may deter some users from using it for legitimate purposes.
