Yojana and Kurukshetra: How to use them for UPSC preparation without wasting time?

Question from a reader
I use to read articles of Hindu, economic times daily and cover articles of yojna,kurukshetra within a month.How to prioritize this as they take much time and eats up time of the subjects.
  • You don't have to read Yojana or Kurukshetra line by line.
  • They've information on a few schemes, some suggestion for Development, [overrated] success stories of SHG and NGOs.
  • The exam oriented information in each month's issue, can be summerized in a note in barely 2 pages or even less, depending on your notes-making skill. [Most of the names,dates,numbers and data-tables given in the magazine, are useless from exam point of view.]
  • So, just scan through the pages, note down any useful fodder related to schemes and Development [which you can use in descriptive answers or essay] and then throw away the magazine in the store-room [or delete the pdf file from the harddisk].
  • This exercise should take less than two hours and two A4 sized pages, each month for each magazine of Yojana and Kurukshetra.
