– a clear understanding of the truth emerges out of respectful discourses held between the learned ones. 

Eager to build upon existing discourses or launch fresh ones on matters of critical civilisational importance? Let your thoughts reach the right audience through the Rashtram Blog

We are inviting submissions in the following categories:

  • Opinion PieceBuild factual arguments, drawing from your own expertise or experiences, written in a first-person active voice.
    A typical ‘op-ed’, or an opinion piece, appears in print/electronic media on the opposite side of the editorial page. Written op-eds run up to 1000 words, but we are open to publishing longer ones too.
  • CommentaryWeigh in on the most recent and prevalent social, economic, and political issues of the day. Share your unique perspectives, in a nuanced manner, on a range of topics, starting from the Hijab-row to the ensuing Russia-Ukraine conflict.
  • Longform ArticleEngage critically with debates, events, and theories that impact the course of our civilisation and our country – we encourage submissions of longform essays/articles which take a deep dive into Indic civilisational topics, Public Policy-related subjects, as well as general cultural issues that hold significance for the growth and flourishing of our nation. Publish original research output in the field of science, humanities, fine arts, technology, politics, and culture.

In addition to the written word, we encourage submissions of audio-visual content, illustrations or graphical representations in all aforementioned categories.
