For example Marx’s interest was in law and philosophy, Lenin was a student of law, Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Nehru were law graduates while S. Radhakrishnan studied philosophy. Apart from this, most of the IAS and IPS belong to this stream. In India, Civil Service examination is considered as one of the highest competitive exams and the toughest one to crack the nuts as well. But, the majority of the IAS aspirants prefer humanities as their optional paper.
