Why Geography as an Optional?

Geography is an important subject for UPSC CSE. Its terminologies and concepts are as old as the ancient civilization of Indus valley, The Hwang-Ho Valley Civilizations, Nile valley and Mesopotamian Civilisation. Geography as a subject has developed over the historical Period of Greeks, Romans, Indians,Chinese and Arabs Geographers. In the twentieth century, especially after the Second World War, Geography was recognised as a socially relevant subject.Since then, there has been an explosion of geographic literature.

Geography’s contribution in General studies: More than 40% of the GS paper I syllabus is directly covered with Geography as an Optional. GS paper II also has few sections which are part of the Geography optional syllabus.

Apart from this direct overlapping, indirectly it helps in the essay paper. Information of geography is very useful in answering questions on International Relations specially the Geopolitics, sea lines of communication , Social studies and strategic analysis etc. In essay paper there is atleast one topic asked directly related to geography every year. Even in other topics in essay except the philosophical topics knowledge from geography can be helpful in writing essays. For example in 2018, there was an essay ‘Management of Indian border disputes – a complex task’. It is directly related to Geography.
