Civil Services is most coveted service in India. To become an IAS or IPS is dream of many talented youth in India. Aspirants from various backgrounds and capabilities attempt this exam. Around 10 lakh students apply and approximately 5 lakh people write the Civil Service Preliminary examination.

Person with general approach will go to each and every street in Hyderabad and look for shops selling good quality bangles. Those with precision approach will obtains additional information that good quality bangles are available at Laad Bazar near Charminar and go to Laad Bazar and buy the bangles.
