Avanti Fellows: Journey so far, and beyond!

By Vatsul Anand,

Just a few days back, JEE results were out. I was talking with our first batch of graduating fellows and discussing their results, which brought back a lot of memories from the past two years. 

A Critique on Reservation

The viewpoints of the primary stakeholder on the need of the quota system.

The dominant view on reservation that we usually see is of an evil that takes away the seats from the deserving candidates in favour of the reserved ones, however it mostly comprises of the voices raised from the critical end of the spectrum. This end mostly consists of the general public, people who have not been subjected to various discriminatory acts in the past.

My Experiences with SIFE

By Chetan Krishna

As one of the people who got to see ENACTUS-IIT Delhi (or SIFE as it is still fondly remembered) being built up from scratch, I must say that the chance to write this article brought back more than a little bit of nostalgia.

Shadow of the Rainbow

It’s a well known fact that a majority of the Indian society isn’t friendly towards the LGBT community. Well, “friendly” might even be an overstatement. Most of us are unwilling to accept that there is a third “I” in the World, an “I” formed by transgenders, bisexuals, gays and lesbians.


2nd October on Friday! Awesome! I am going to enjoy this extended weekend - probably the thought running through most of our minds. Many of us might even be thinking of going home or on a trip. But we need to understand that National Holidays should not only be seen as ‘holidays’ but also as a day when we must show our respect towards their significance. Don’t worry we are not going to judge you for your partying plans but at the same time one must ask that Should we squander the significance of these holidays?

Gearing Up For College

NIT Srinagar Issue

Cricket is a religion in India.

This is what we say and believe in, although never thought it would be taken a tad too literally. Referring to the recent issue in NIT Srinagar, the loss of India in the semi-finals of the T20 world cup hit the country harder than predicted. The rift between India and Pakistan is highlighted in many matters across the country,but in a sensitive place like Kashmir, this is something inherent that takes place every day. Which is why this cricket match served as the initiation for something much bigger.
