The Competition offers the participants an opportunity to elaborate on their ideals of nationalism, nation-building, and the overall socio-economic growth of the nation. The aim is to promote the ideals of nation and nationalism in its true sense where the head is held high and each individual respects and appreciates the diversity and strives for collective success.

Background for 7th National Essay Writing Competition on Nation and Nationalism 2022

The central idea of modern nationalism is to promote amongst all a collective brotherhood which means standing up for one another in times of despair and striving for collective success to promote individual growth, which will in itself culminate into the nation’s overall growth.

The father of our Constitution, B.R Ambedkar, had immense faith in the bright future and evolution of India, and when he spoke of attaining freedom, his ultimate goal was to unite the people of the nation. He said,

“So far as the ultimate goal is concerned, none of us has any apprehension or doubt. Our difficulty was not about the ultimate thing but how to unite the heterogeneous mass that we are today to take a decision in common and march in a cooperative way on that road, which is bound to lead us to unity.”
