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.

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.

GANDHI – IN FLESH AND BLOOD

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?
