Session I

Gender Equality : Myth Or Reality

We keep shouting that without gender equality, the democracy is handicapped. That irrespective of the gender, we all have the right to equal opportunities and treatment at home, work, and society in general.

But have we really risen above the traditional practices of patriarchy? Aren’t girls and women considered “lesser sex” even in our “modern society” – as we so keep proclaiming it – and millions of them are still bearing the brunt everywhere around the globe in the forms of female genitalia mutilation, sex trafficking, education deprivation, rape, domestic violence, acid attacks, early marriages, honour-killings, maternal deaths, and other severely inhumane dangers that cause them lifelong physical and psychological harm? If gender equality is a reality, why can’t 10 of all the 10 women worldwide breathe, walk, and live safely and freely as they please? Can we really expect the world where every woman is seen, heard, and respected as a human being – where her individual work and integrity is honored, rewarded, and will always be remembered?

Session II

Caste or Kabiliyat. ?

On 9th August 2017, Mumbai came to a standstill in a show of strength rally , as Marathas wanted reservations in education and jobs. In Gujrath, a non-descript Hardik Patel became a hero overnight when he almost started a mutiny in the name of “Arakshan” for Patel community.

Not to be left behind the Jats in Haryana wanted their piece of pie and left the state burning in their demand for the Reservation Tag. As if on cue, Rajsthan Government recently announced reservation for Gurjars.

How long will India take to cast off the spectre of caste based reservations? For how long must caste become a major qualifier in a “free” and “ equal” India?Can a Chaiwala becoming a Prime Minister, not by flaunting his OBC status , asking for concessions or quota and emerging a world leader script a new social narrative of a free India?

Session III

Personal Liberty under Article 21 and Right to Privacy

Under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution the right to Life and Personal Liberty has been conferred upon the people of the country.

The right to personal liberty has been interpreted by the Supreme Court in such a manner that it encompasses many rights of the individual which ordinarily would have been beyond their imagination.

For instance right to go abroad, right to privacy, right to clean air, water, right to safe environment, etc. There are many such rights which the Supreme Court has given to the common man. Privacy is the most essential requirement of a person.

Privacy is such that without which a person would not be in a position to enjoy his life.

Everybody cherishes privacy, of course the degree of it varies but it is impossible to find a person who does not want privacy. Privacy for many is the theme of life and that is also the approach of their life, as a result of which it has acquired unique significance.

This unique significance should be unravelled so that everyone can understand it. The Supreme Court has thrown the light on the degree of privacy and the spheres of privacy which needs to be cherished by each and everyone.

Session IV

Media - Truth or TRP

The truth may or may not prevail, but the TRP has to peak. This seems to be the attitude of the current News Media, which in reality has a greater responsibility as it reaches and influences the maximum audience – quicker than we browse between the channels.

When such a fourth pillar of democracy fails, the most vulnerable public (which unfortunately also makes the larger part of our community) – the one which is not as empowered as it should be and relies heavily on TV for all kinds of information – is left with a great amount of misleading content and no other effective medium for confirmation.

High dramatization of useless news, and even the news that matters the most, kicks off a superfluous response, far from the truth.

How can the authenticity of a certain fragment of information be validated? Rather than creating a sensation, mustn’t media perform with a more reasonable tone? Doesn’t sidelining the real issues and highlighting the non-issues corrupt the mind and hamper the development? Does TRP mount up only when it’s a twisted content? Can’t we keep the media for truth and the business of entertainment separate? Can we expect media to take us through this most transitional period with less pain, more respect, but more importantly, better & relevant content even at the cost of losing some TRP?

Session V

Redefining Freedom @70

With infrastructural growth, developmental politics, demonetization, GST implementation, and other critical news that has affected the country recently, we must look back and ask what has India achieved as a country in the 70 years of her independence? Have we made most of the freedom we say we got with the utmost struggle and sacrifice?

Has India achieved her dream of becoming the most benevolent secular and federal state? Does every citizen, region, and religion protected under the Constitution of India is as safe as it says in the text? Has India accomplished the “the shining India”, “the incredible India”, “the digital India”, etc.

campaigns – or more or less than that? If we don’t have a better story to tell now, how will we have it in the next 70 years? And if we do have it, may we say it without bloodshed and tears? Let’s re-examine, re-evaluate, and re-define the fundamental right we live and die for! Let’s stand for the country whose name itself gets us goose bumps of pride and hold her up when she falters, for it’s not really she who falters but us! Let’s say freedom is not just a tattoo – it’s a responsibility!

Kashish Bhargava

G H Raisoni College of Commerce, Science & Technology, Nagpur
BBA, Second Year

In My Words...

Stumbled upon a thought that all through life there have been distinctions made amongst men and women, though at the end the graves are always identical. This speaks gospel that the world might not be a wish granting factory but having the confidence to ignore prejudices has been crucial, as is a strong belief in my own abilities.

Eila Qureshi

Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, Nagpur
Department of Mass Communication

In My Words...

The road to Gender Equality is in understanding that we are not equal but need equal opportunities to showcase our different skill set.

Bhavya Dubey

In My Words...

Reservation: beyond Caste, Creed and, Colour; "ability should prevail". Jaago BHARAT Jaago!

Dr. Shravani P. Chavan

Govt. Ayurved College & Hospital, Nagpur
PG First Year

In My Words...

"Believe you deserve it and the universe will serve It", is a tagline that embarked the journey of NSP. I m very thankful to get this opportunity to put forward my views on "Personal liberty under Article 21and Right to Privacy...”

I feel it's the need of the century to understand that, an individual’s personal liberty shouldn't infringe that of others And that every person merely doesn't exist but leads a meaningful, complete and dignified life.

The voice is your Primary means to connect with others and today I feel grateful that NSP gave this voice an opportunity to be heard...

Rohan Parekh

In My Words...

Media today has opened a new gateway towards the development of the country. So in this era of prejudice media should function fairly so as to enhance the pros and cons of the important issues which are inclined more towards favouritism. So this platform should help towards the rejuvenation of media and make it trustworthy.

Rida Shaikh

Sadabai Raisoni Women’s College, Nagpur
BSc(IT)

In My Words...

I feel excited, ecstatic but responsible too. I do realize that an effective speech has the power to persuade, convert, compel and influence the people. I take this opportunity to utilize the adrenalin rush to develop my passion for speaking and train the butterflies in my stomach to fly in formation to greater heights.... As is rightly said "all great speakers, were not born but trained".

Ruchi Maloo

G H Raisoni College of Commerce, Science & Technology, Nagpur
BBA, Second Year

In My Words...

We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practise it. This idea simulated me to present my views on the topic redefining freedom at 70 in NSP. For me it is a great pleasure to be the student speaker as I believe that at 70 we don't wish for division
Nor wish to be violent
All we wish is peace
And India alliant.

Aishwarya Nandwani

Hislop College, Nagpur
BA, Second Year

In My Words...

WFreed by the British, but shackled again by our leaders and now being tortured by their ignorance; this is the great Indian freedom story! How independent are we I really?

It is one of the greatest privileges of my life to be selected as the student speaker in the National Student Parliament. As I'll be sharing the Dias with some of the most eminent personalities, I couldn't ask for.
