National Security Seminar- A Report

August 24th, 2018

Every nation has a message to deliver, a mission to fulfill and a destiny to reach.

Since we cannot build the future for the youth, as an endeavor to build the youth for future, the United Service Institution of India (USI), conducted the National Security Seminar on the 24th of August, 2018 at Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, University of Delhi. The Seminar Committee of the college organized the event with a great enthusiasm and zeal; and with online enrollments of about 800 students from colleges and institutes across Delhi NCR and more than 450 attendees, the event turned out to be a huge success. The students were from the diverse fields of knowledge pursuing their degree programs from Delhi University colleges such as Indraprastha College for Women, Miranda House, Hindu College, Hansraj College, Daulat Ram College, Sri Venkateswara College, Shivaji College, Ramjas College, Rajdhani College, The Cluster Innovation Centre, Janki Devi Memorial College, Dyal Singh College, School of Open Learning, Shyamlal College, Shaheed Bhagat Singh (evening and morning) College, SGND Khalsa College, Jesus and Mary College, Satyawati College, Gargi College, Mata Sundri College, SGTB Khalsa College, Maitreyi College, PGDAV College, ARSD College, St. Stephen College, Aryabhatta College, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Kirori Mal College, Acharya Narendra Dev College, Sri Aurobindo College, Ram Lal Anand College. Many Delhi NCR based institutions affiliated to the Indraprastha University, Ambedkar University, IGNOU and other private universities also sent their enthusiastic students to attend the seminar. These included NIIT, Bharti Vidyapeeth College of Engineering, Technia Institute, IINTM, IILM, AIHM, Amity, DSPSR, SGT University of Medical Science, Maharaja Surajmal Institute, Galgotia University, St. Mary Convent (Nanital), FIMT, VIPS and the likes.  The students were awarded the Certificate of Participation.

The event commenced with the Shabad recital by Divinity Society of SGGSCC and a display of motivational videos to supplement the high spirit of the audience. Presided by Major General BK Sharma, AVSM, SM** (Retd), Dy Director (Research) and head of Centre for Strategic Studies and Simulation, USI; Brigadier Sanjeev Chauhan, Senior Research Fellow, USI and Dr. Roshan Khanijo, Senior Research Fellow and Research Coordinator, Centre of Strategic Studies & Simulation, USI; the National Security Seminar turned to be a breeding ground of knowledge and opportunities for young minds to integrate service to the country with their career goals.

Brigadier Sanjeev Chauhan infused a spirit of nationalism in the audience by sharing with them the might of the Indian armed forces on land, sea, and air and exhibiting the unwavering valour of the Indian Army, Indian Navy and the Air Force through Audio Video Presentations by USI.

Major General BK Sharma, AVSM, SM** (Retd) attended to issues like evolution of India as a state; understanding various National Security concepts like CNP, CSP; National Security architecture, its vision, objectives, challenges; internal and external security scans; and also the current issues of concern such as Pak-China nexus in depth.

With that untangled, Dr. Roshan Khanijo took over the dais to brief the students about Certified Internship Opportunities with United Service Institution of India in diverse fields like Social Media Content, International Relations, Geo-politics, Security scan, Military, Aerospace, Maritime, and Nuclear Strategy.

As the audience got intrigued with the hitherto unexplored sphere of national security, so an open house session was also organised for answering student’s queries.

Bombs and pistols don’t make a revolution; the sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of ideas. It is necessary to never cease to be a student and never cease to learn for it is the irresistible urge that takes us beyond expectations.
