FACES Original Writing Competition 2017

C. N. Singh Young Writer's Award 2017

FACES solicits original essays written on one of the following topics:
(Language: Hindi / English)

1. Women in India
Context/Reference: Now a days, Woman Empowerment/ Liberty / Atrocity have become popular topics of writing, painting, theatre, cinema, seminars/debates, and other forms of creative art. What is projected through these art-forms is utterly grim condition of women in India, in past and present. Is this message to the world true and justified, exaggerated or untrue? Do we treat women in the same manner as it is shown in above said media? Is the condition of women in your own family as such? If you are a woman, what is your own experience?
भारतीय नारी
सन्दर्भ: वर्तमान में नारी सशक्तिकरण, नारी शोषण, नारी स्वतंत्रता आदि, नाटकों, कहानियों, फिल्मों और अन्य कलाओं के लिए प्रचलित विषय बन गए हैं। इन माध्यमों से, भूत और वर्तमान में भारतीय नारी की जो दशा और चित्र प्रस्तुत किये जा रहे हैं, क्या वही भारतीय नारी की वास्तविक दशा ह,ै या रही है? क्या आपके परिवार में भी  नारियों की वही दशा है? यदि आप स्वयं एक नारी है तो आपका क्या अनुभव है?
2. Did India Deserve Freedom?
Context/Reference: Churchill opposed freedom of India by saying India didn’t deserve freedom and also explained why. After almost seven decades of Indian freedom and democratic rule, if we observe minutely and being impartial whatever is going on in India, it seems that Churchill was true. Have we taught that our democracy is great or do we feel so through our experiences?  You can give your own opinion and put forward logics and proofs in favor or against.
क्या भारत स्वतंत्रता योग्य था?
सन्दर्भ: विंस्टन चर्चिल ने यह कह कर भारत के स्वतंत्रता का विरोध किया था कि भारत अभी स्वतंत्रता के योग्य नहीं है और उसने अपने बात के पक्ष में तर्क भी दिए थे। भारत के आजादी और प्रजातान्त्रिक शासन व्यवस्था के सात दशक बाद यदि हम निष्पक्ष हो कर सूक्ष्मता से गौर करे तो लगता है कि चर्चिल सही था। भारत का प्रजातंत्र महान है: क्या यह हमारा अपना अनुभव है, या हमें यह पढ़ाया जाता है? आप अपने विचार के पक्ष में तर्क और प्रमाण रखें।
3. Concept of Progress
Context/Reference: Is scientific, economic and technological development really progress of human being? Are we really marching towards a better life through so-called advancements and developments? What is your view?
विकास की वर्तमान अवधारणा
सन्दर्भ: विज्ञान, प्रावैधिकी तथा आर्थिक विकास, क्या मानव जाति का वास्तविक विकास है? क्या इस निरंतर विकास के साथ मानव एक उत्कृष्ट और आनंदित जीवन की ओर अग्रसर हो रहा है? आपका क्या विचार है?
