Abhivyakti is an initiative by Think India, Punjab. The meaning of ‘Abhivyakti’ is to express, or present. True to its meaning, it is launched with an aim to provide a platform where students, researchers and academicians across the globe can publish their ideas and perspectives on various social, legal, political and technological issues and concepts. With social awakening as its prime objective, the blog is mainly targeted at fruitful dispersion of ideas and opinion in the light of contemporary socio-legal concerns. (Think India)
As Francis Bacon said, “Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.” At Abhivyakti, we believe that there is no agony greater than not expressing what your intellectual senses perceive. Penning down your thoughts opens up new avenues and ways for personal as well as professional growth. The pursuit of perfection requires diligent practice to hone the skills of writing. Hence, our team is here to help you publish your work, also to provide you with constructive feedback to enhance the standard of your writing.
