Happy Dr. B.R.Ambedkar's Jayanti

Dear Friends,
Happy Dr. B.R.Ambedkar’s Jayanti
The role Dr. B.R. Ambedkar played has left its imprint on the Indian society and is still shaping the political and civil contours of the contemporary India and of political discourse. His life is his message, so we have to look into his life and struggle to understand the liberative potentialities of his thought and his impact on the Indian society.
Centre for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (CPPIS) Pehowa (Kurushetra) always ready to start some academic innovative programmes. In its starting year i.e. 2010 the Centre started it’s an online journal, “Lokayata” and in 2011 it started publication of the books. Last year, in 2012 we started our YouTube Channel, where we are uploading educational video. In this continuation, this year we are going to start our “Lecture-Series”. In this initiative, we will provide lectures delivered by teachers, scholars on various programmes. The major objective is to provide readable material for students in particular and general reader in general. On the first step we will upload these lectures on our websites one by one and after that we will publish these in a print book as a collection of same titles.
In this series first lecture is “Gender Inequality and Sexual Harassment” delivered by Dr. Anamika Girdhar (Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Kurukshetra University Kurukshetra) in ICPR Sponsored Periodical Lectures organized by Department of Philosophy, P.G.Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh held on 10th February, 2012 with the title, “Gender Inequality and Sexual Harassment: Causes and Solution”.  This is a very current and important issue to discuss in academics as well as in public.

Hope this initiative of the Centre welcome by our scholars and a kind response we will hear from them. We are thankful to our teachers and scholars who are continually motivating us for this kind of initiatives. We seek their blessings all time to do CPPIS’s work better.
