The Takshashila Institution has been featured in the India Today magazine in an article titled “My Freedom to Introspect.”
The feature highlights how India is a beacon of liberal nationalism. It also represents how freedom should reflect in the way we do things rather than just the outcomes. The feature accentuates that in every liberal democracy, the individual is the ultimate cause.
An excerpt from the feature is as follows:
“We are like a lighthouse, a beacon of liberal nationalism. Freedoms are enshrined in the Constitution, but will be lost unless protected. We stand strongly for freedom of an individual along with economic freedom and belief in diversity. We believe freedom should reflect in the way you do things, not just in the outcome. When you talk to people about nationalism, they often speak of borders, or integrity. As if national interest is a real estate game. Whereas, in a liberal democracy, the individual is the ultimate cause. In one of our earliest editorials for Pragati, The National Interest Review, which we published until recently, we said, “We are a land of 1.2 billion minorities,” that is, every individual is like a minority.”
