About the Competition

Amity Law School is organizing the 6th edition of its acclaimed “National Essay Writing Competition on Nation and Nationalism 2022” in collaboration with Legal Bites. The Competition offers the students the opportunity to elaborate on their ideals of nationalism, nation-building and the overall socio-economic growth of the nation. The aim is to promote the ideals of nation and nationalism in its true sense where the head is held high and each individual respects and appreciates the diversity and strives for collective success.

Nationalism is a diverse and complex phenomenon. A state is a political entity with (usually) clearly defined territorial borders. Nations are more fluid—defined at their most basic by a sense of belonging to a community, and possessing a sense of separateness. In India, as we all know the growth of modern nationalism is intimately linked to the anti-colonial movement.

Nationalism strengthens with the belief of the people that they are all part of the same nation i.e a sense of collective belonging which is a culmination of a variety of cultural processes. The concept within itself is a sentiment of loyalty towards the nation in its broader sense cultivating a sense of unity amongst the citizens.

The father of our Constitution B.R Ambedkar had immense faith in the bright future and evolution of India and when he spoke of attaining freedom his ultimate goal was to unite the people of the nation. He said,

“So far as the ultimate goal is concerned, none of us has any apprehension or doubt. Our difficulty was not about the ultimate thing but how to unite the heterogeneous mass that we are today to take a decision in common and march in a cooperative way on that road, which is bound to lead us to unity.”

The central idea of modern nationalism is to promote amongst all a collective brotherhood which means standing up for one another in times of despair and strive for collective success to promote individual growth which will in itself culminate into the overall growth of the nation.
