  1. The competition organised by luknow university on national art writing touched my inner person to the extant that I used to be pass out from this university during eighties.. I have had privilege and distinction of being student of among others Dr. Avtar singh who used to teach us commercial laws as also occassionally jurisprudence. Equally in my memory cycle I remember Dr. Tandon who used to teach us penal laws and then young scholar Dr. Srivastava teaching adminstrative and comparative laws.. By now university had gained so much advancement and multiplied in many other faculties not existing during our student days.. Organizing writing competition on political nature of topics is always fields where disagreements are sore and by now more or less crime. Basic fault lies with occupants who occupied this field and by majority lose virtue to hold it. Crime and politics are now synonmous and honble supreme Court had come out with judicial notice to debar such of those persons to enter into this field who had criminal background. Journalisim is vibrant fact of democracy and rudimentary factor to let others feel survival of democracy. Yet, it’s fields and domains are again based on high valued conventions. In crowd politics journalisim turned more or less marketing tool to advance objects and things which have particular inclinations and socio political reservations… Thus it lost much of its credibity not having presumed trust of being fair but to be proved to be fair.. Wish younger generation to join this competition and explore thoughts on it with contemporary trends in jounalisim organised by university which taught me how to learn even while learning. Grateful of lucknow university..
