The induction session for the newly admitted students of the MA previous class was organised on Dt.04.12.2020. The session began with Dr. Swati S. Nanda informing the students about the college and the department of Political Science and the faculty members. The Guest Speaker of the session, Prof. R.P. Pathak (Ex-Dean, Faculty of Social Science, BHU & ex-HoD, Political Science, BHU), was welcomed by Dr. Nanda on behalf of the department.
Prof. Pathak began his address by congratulating the students for having chosen Political Science as their subject. He warned that the subject, that has been termed as the Master Science by Aristotle bestows certain duties and responsibilities on the students. This implies understanding each of the concepts and issues related to politics. Secularism and multiculturalism, for instance, cannot be considered as mere ideas but as realities that people live. Expanding his views, he stated that political theories tend to not only respond to the political  and social realities but also have the potential to act as guides to the future.  Students must study not only what is given in the syllabus but always try to go beyond it.  He stressed that there have been times when new systems were required to be built, and history bears testimony to the fact that students of Political Science have acted as frontline leaders in many such cases.
Prof. Pathak emphatically stated that students of Political Science have a responsibility to bring a civilized state into being. Therefore, it is very important that students should study the Constitution of the our country very carefully. The Constitution of India is not only the best document of its type in the entire world but also best for India. Prof Pathak turned his attention towards the teachers asking them to always remember their responsibilities of creating a new generation that respects the constitution.
The learned speaker stated that Covid-19 has come as a shock to all of us. The economy is in shambles. Here too, Political Scientists have a responsibility— of evolving new models of good governance that can beat such shocks.  He said that students should study each of the papers not just as readers but as experts. They should have their opinion but it should be properly informed by studies. For example, one must study NAM, Panchsheel prior to giving opinion about Contemporary India’s standing on the international arena.  He stressed that all students should have a heart for the marginalized sections of the society. The plight of the labourers, farmers must be understood not merely from the State’s perspective but also the perspective of the people. Various new disciplines have emerged with such ideas that have led to policy changes. Prof. Pathak concluded by saying  that while it is important to be radical in heart, it is also important to understand the importance of continuity for the life of a nation.
The address by the scholarly speaker was followed by a long questions answer session. Questions ranged from clarification over points, issues, concepts to inquiries about the various career opportunities for students of Political Science.
The session ended with Ms. Priyanka Singh offering the vote of thanks to Prof. R.P. Pathak.

He also focussed on the status of public administration as a subject in the contemporary period.Prof Sharma took the opportunity to inform the students about the career opportunities that public administration offers as a subject. Its importance both as a research area and for competitive examinations was dealt in detail.The session was opened for students’ questions.

Dr. Nanda also informed that the lecture was based on demands of students to understand the various revolutionary movements within India with a special focus on Maoist movement as it was part of their course. Prof. T. P. Singh  began by focusing on revolutionary movements in pre-independent India driven by nationalistic sentiments. He discussed the various kinds of movements during that phase that included Indian National Congress, Hindu Mahasabha and the Marxist parties. Prof. T.P. Singh went on to show the difference between movements of pre- and post-independent India by focussing on the movements of the later period as driven by lack of development and lack of social inclusivity. With this, Prof. Singh focused on Maoist movement that has been waged by the banned PWG in many states of India. He discussed the gradual geographical expansion of the movement and the causes for it. He stated that while the movement maintained the façade of a justice movement , it was actually a movement that involved greed and corruption. Violence and anti-state nature of this movement has made it a movement that needs to be urgently suppressed. He praised the actions of the present Government of India in tackling the movement.

She also discussed how each country’s disorder is shaped by factors unique to its local political landscape, the region also faces common threats. Gang activity stemming from drug trafficking is widespread, generating instability across El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Brazil, and more. In these countries, gang violence has risen to a point where it directly threatens public safety and security, and where gangs challenge the state for control of territory. While Dr. Joshi discussed the various local levels of conflicts in the region, she also drew attention towards the fact that Latin America should be seen as a region that has very less inter-state conflict.  She also focussed on the role of the UN in maintaining the status quo in the region.

Prof. Kondapalli brought into light China’s rise over the past two decades. He highlighted the fact that the landscape of global politics is undergoing the process of transformation. China rapidly transformed its economy from a low-cost “factory to the world” to a global leader in advanced technologies. Along the way, it has transformed global supply chains, but also international diplomacy, leveraging its success to become the primary trading and development partner for emerging economies across Asia, Africa and Latin America.But along with these developments Beijing’s emergence as a global power has also created tensions. Xi has overseen a domestic crackdown on dissent, in order to shore up and expand the Chinese Communist Party’s control over every aspect of Chinese society. The world need to understand that this is the ‘New world Order’ and China will continue to flex its muscles with the same pace, the world needs to adjust to these changing circumstances.

A lecture on Women in Indian Political Thought by Dr. Priyanka Jha (Department of Political Science) was conducted by the Department of Political Science. The lecture began with Dr, Swati Nanda welcoming the learned guest and introducing the topic to the students.  In her lecture, Dr. Jha focused on why women are seen as outsiders in political thought. She drew attention towards both western and Indian traditions to show how women have been systematically kept away from disciplines. She spoke of Rousseau and Hobbes who were explicit about their dislike for women to be given space in thought. In Indian traditions too, women were kept away systematically by a binary division called public and private. Then she went on to show how the same trend continues in contemporary times. While many women have made their marks in India by not only expressing systematic thoughts on various issues in India, they are often ignored by scholars. Dr. Jha showed how androcentrism is considered to be the rule in Indian scholarship which is reflected the way syllabus is framed and taught in the universities. She focussed on Kamladevi Chattopadhyay as an example of how  women in India have held their views. The session was well-received by the students who considered it as an eye opening lecture. The lecture was followed by questions on gender inequality and how to get rid of it. Dr. Jha answered the questions very patiently. Vote of thanks for the session was offered by Dr. Pratima Gupta.
Dr. Ghosh brought into the picture the ‘Great Game’ between U.S. and China by citing historical events and predicting future discourse. She mentioned that the Great Game conjures up the images of a complicated chess match between great powers. She also highlighted the fact that U.S.-China competition is over regional and global order, outlines what Chinese-led order might look like, explores why grand strategy matters and how to study it, and discussed competing views of whether China has a grand strategy. She argued that China has sought to displace America from regional and global order through three sequential “strategies of displacement” pursued at the military, political, and economic levels. The first of these strategies sought to blunt American order regionally, the second sought to build Chinese order regionally, and the third — a strategy of expansion — now seeks to do both globally. She also explained that shifts in China’s strategy are profoundly shaped by key events that change its perception of American power because the key to defeating an opponent’s strategy is first to understand it and China has understood America in a much better way that other’s couldn’t. Now it is on US to pursue order-building as well as reinvesting in the very same foundations of American global order that Beijing presently seeks to weaken because there is need to have balance of power and rules based order in the world.
