Description

Damodarshree National Award for Academic Excellence 2016 award is for the best essay in English or Hindi on "The time to begin is Now; the ground Here" or "आरम्भ का क्षण है अभी; जमींन यहीं"

It is possible to look at the topic set for an essay contest in many different ways. Much of the charm of an essay lies in the way it interprets, and plays with the words of the topic. The participants in the contest should feel free to follow their own line of thinking.
'The time to begin is now; the ground is here' Who is making this statement?

What does 'Now' suggest? Urgency? or does it point to the present moment where the past converges and from where the future emanates, the only real, unimagined time where action can take place?

'Time to Begin'. Begin to bring about what? A change in the social/political/economical/cultural/educational structure? Is change in structure connected to change in consciousness?

Similarly 'Ground'. Is ground the individual/group consciousness?or is it the body of accepted norms/values that hold society together? or is it the social/political/economic/legal/religious power structure/structures?

Are there still other, completely different ways of looking at the topic? Not to agree with it or to do so only partially? Are the keywords interconnected?
