Vakya; 1st Opinion Writing Competition
बोल कि लब आज़ाद हैं तेरे
बोल ज़बाँ अब तक तेरी है
बोल कि सच ज़िंदा है अब
– Faiz Ahmed Faiz
We live in a world full of intolerance where seldom we are comfortable in freely projecting our own views and ideas. Various factors prohibit us from sharing our own take on a given matter, such as the desire to conform to the established norm, peer pressure, an unsupportive audience, and lack of confidence or the unavailability of a space which will enable to freely voice your opinion.
Yes, we have social media, but nowadays, even that is full of haters, bullies, trolls and other people who are intolerant of ideas which do not match with their own.
We, at Vakya, strongly felt the need for such a forum, where students can write their personal opinions and engage in healthy discussions with other students, without facing any intolerance.
With the objective to provide you a platform to put your thoughts, opinions, ideas and views we present “Vakya- 1st Opinion Writing Competition.”
Any one of the following:-
- “Acche Din” will do to Modi what “Shining India” did to Vajpayee.

- The future of Left in India
