Fellowship Topics!

Covid-19 and its Vaccine Crisis:

Global harmony has always been a well-established need for all. Efforts, sacrifices, inputs and assistance has always been provided in good faith by underdeveloped states to fellow first world states for insuring a partner in every whip and whim. On the contrary, they moved for self-preservation beyond all whenever a crisis struck. From WW1 to Covid-19, modern human history is full of contradictions being played before the global agencies. Unfair distribution of vaccine is a link in the streak. The vaccine should be made available to all and it should be distributed across the globe without any discrimination or favor.

Civil Rights, Virtue and Tranquility:

Accessibility of equal social opportunities, protection under law, freedom of expression for every human being, rule of law and order and peace will diminish the probability of chaos. To eliminate the dilemma of religious conflict, ethnic rivalry, border disputes, imperialism, individual ambition, pretention of grandeur and fear. To educate people about human rights, that might endeavor by teaching and promoting respect for these rights and by dynamic measures taken on national or international level, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance.

Development of Science and Technology:

From the vast expansion of human potential to the radical transformations in the standard of life, science and technology has effectively played its part. To ensure national security and social stability, to sustain the growth of national economy and to improve its efficiency, to prepare for a smooth transition to an information society, to create a new culture suitable for the new society further development and progress in this field is required as it is directly proportional to the up-gradation of People’s lives, society and economy.


Entrepreneurs create businesses and new businesses create jobs. They strengthen market competition and increase productivity by pulling the process of economic development through efficient use of resources, manpower, and finance by expanding exports, by encouraging better standard of living, by enabling balanced regional development, by investing in products and services people need and by addressing environmental challenges. Entrepreneurship skills should be invigorated so that out dated thinking could be wiped off and no one could stop the society from growing and developing.

Anti-Patriarchal Model:

How the introduction of an anti-patriarchal model in our societies will lead to social prosperity. To understand the prevalent culture of patriarchy as a big hindrance in the elimination of gender discrimination and development of an accepting attitude towards women-empowerment and gender equality. Meanwhile, economic prosperity can be achieved by providing equal opportunities for all, by assuring the existence of safer and healthier communities by poking out pride and prejudice and by fostering peace to make this world a better place to live in.
