He took sociology as one of his option. In a very short period, he developed a great interest in this subject and started writing articles in national dailies.
At the outset, I would like to thank Praveen Kishore Sir for his contribution to my success.
I had joined Sir's institute in 2016 for test series and as I wrote tests and sat in classroom discussions. I began to feel that my knowledge has constantly improved.
Even in my last attempt I had very good marks in Sociology because of the 1) Discussions, I heard in Sir's Classroom 2) because of innovative questions he used to set in the test series, and finally, 3) The rich material he has compiled in booklets. Once again thank you Praveen Kishore Sir.

I really want to thank u for helping me to crack the exam. In the changing scenario of UPSC exams students are generally confused about which institution to trust. I joined your regular classes which helped me to understand the concepts. Just attentive listening in your class helped me to grasp sociology easily. Your notes helped me to score 344 marks in very first attempt.

Anu Kumari Kumari (AIR 02, 2017)
I would like to thank Praveen Kishore Sir for his fabulous guidance as a part of Sociology test series that I had joined at NICE IAS coaching institute. Since I had prepared sociology on my own, there were many concepts which were not clear to me, however, Sir made sociology concepts lucid and so easy to understand that I began to love the subject even more. I saw marked improvement in the structuring of my answers. Sir pointed the flaws in my answers in test series – an important flaw that he highlighted was lack of flow and continuity. I wrote 5 tests and got Sir’s important feedback. Thanks a lot once again Sir. Your guidance has been extremely crucial in my success.
Smarak Swain (AIR 309, 2008)
A major reason why my sociology marks jumped from 292 to 356 is because of paper 2. That too after a change in pattern of paper 2. I could score 190… a major contribution in this was the guidance you gave me in this matter. The rich source material you put at my disposal and the interesting questions you asked in the test papers prepared me for final exams. This year, the pattern in paper 2 was markedly different, the questions being very specific and the demand from students being to write to-the-point answers. Your mock questions had all the ingredients for same, and answer writing practice under your supervision helped me immensely.
Bagadi Gautam (AIR 23, 2008)
