Do we live in a perfect society?
The Constitution grants us rights, but can everyone exercise them?
Are the concepts of 'victim' and 'oppressor' obsolete in the society?
These are some of the questions that prick the minds of young Social Science researchers and scholars. So, what does the person need to do in order to find these answers? He or she has to engage in meaningful research.
Subham Chatterjee is one such inquisitive student. Chatterjee is currently a 2nd-semester LLM student in the School of Law at Brainware University. Recently, he published a paper on 'Rights of the Indigenous People through the lens of the Indian Constitution' in an ICSSR-sponsored International Seminar on 'Contemporary Concerns of the State of Indigenous People vis-a-viz Their Existence and Survival'. The seminar took place at Dispur College in Assam.
In this context, it must be noted that the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) was established in the year of 1969 by the Government of India to promote research in social sciences in the country. The organisation provides grants for projects, fellowships, international collaboration, capacity building, survey, publications, etc. to promote research in social sciences in India.
Incidentally, this is Subham's second paper presentation at an ICSSR-sponsored seminar.
All our best wishes are with Subham, and we are hopeful that his inquisitiveness will let him make a mark in the social sciences paradigm.
