'Indian 2023: A Vision for our Future'

On 24th September 2019, class 1PSEco conducted a student seminar ‘INDIA 2023: a vision for our future’. The event was held in the Seminar Hall at Block 2, CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Hosur Road. This was the first student seminar organized and conducted for this academic year within the department of sociology and social work and more importantly first ever to be organized by the first year PSEco class. Dr. Victor Paul, HOD of Sociology and Social Work,  Dr. Suparna Majumdar and various other professors graced the occasion. The seminar was an outside-class learning experience where students actively participated and presented their research work in accordance to the theme.
The seminar was well-organized thanks to the efforts put in by Ms. Nikhita Jindal, Ph.D. Scholar at Christ University and the Core Team. Through the theme selected, the class tried to analyze how the current economic, political and social scenario will affect the future. Papers on various diverse sub-themes were presented, topics like “water crisis”, “ World Cup 2023”, “counter-terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir” and many more. This gave students the opportunity to venture beyond academic knowledge and a chance to explore recurring issues. The seminar was planned and executed in two weeks by the Core team. Various cultural performances were presented by the students as part of creating an impact.

Ms Yaschica and Master Sandeep won the award for the ‘best presenter’, Ms. Annet, Ms. Upasana and Master Divyajyoti won the award for ‘best topic’ and Ms. Salma won the award for ‘ the most visionary paper. At the end of the event, Dr Suparna appreciated the class for taking out time and conducting this seminar. This event also taught students skills like punctuality, time and stress management, teamwork, cooperation, coordination and event management. “ India 2023”  was quite a success and we hope to see more student seminars in the near future
