Role of India in Changing the Global World Order

Winner Of CSC December 2019 12th Essay Competition : Animesh Kumar

Strolling through the dusty, musty, dirt ridden, cobbled, vine covered, brick laden, concrete layered, and often tarmacked streets of India,one can see development sprawling and sprouting on the horizon. The Indian economy and communal space much like these assorted avenues is a complex mixture of crude and comprehensive. The multidimensional exposure that India receives because of its ethnic diversity and a gargantuan population has over time catapulted India onto the world stage. India is now in the race to reclaim its former glory and prestige. As it tries to purge itself form the sizable stains of poverty and precarious social order,the International forum

Winner Of CSC November 2019 11th Essay Competition : Tiya Singh

In a post-globalised world order, humanity rests on imbricated systems of trade, economy, the environment and a massive, ever- expanding flow of ideas. In such a scenario, poverty threatens the very foundations of this fragile world order. Various economic research studies point toward a recent trend in increasing income inequalities within nations, as marked by the standardised measure of inequality known as the ‘Gini Coefficient’, especially over the past few decades. However, it is important to remember that the consequences of living in grossly unequal societies with millions living in poverty, goes beyond the perspective that mere economic denominator

Winner: Alefiya Lokhandwala “Deep dark monsters loom in the dark,Along the pathways and Recesses that perhaps a few might embark. Evil hidden in plain sight,Hideous masks shunning the right.” The world we live in today has witnessed drastic technological advancements, more so in the last few decades than, in perhaps, the last century. Yet the blade that still hangs on our necks is: Is our species ready for the scientific innovations that have swung by us through the millennia?In recent years AI based applications have received a tidal wave of new upgrades and developments.

Good Fences Make Good Neighbours

Winner Of CSC July 2019 Essay Competition : Amrita Brahmo

If we were to take a leap back to the early 20th century when Robert Frost penned this ubiquitous truth, we would find ourselves in a world where walls were both towering and crumbling. On the brink of the first World War, every major power was jealously guarding the last square inch of their existing territory even as it sought to outpace its contemporaries in acquiring newer domains. As the world map faced imminent rearrangement, the sentiment of neighbourly niceties embodied in the Bible was subsumed by shrewd alliances for strategic gain and national interest.Cut to the present day, and despite mankind’s great leaps in
