Every year, we embark on a journey that ends in the publication of Aapoorti, our annual Economics journal. En route, we try to involve as many people as we can, with the objective to explore and exploit the connect we all are trying to establish with the subject that we are pursuing, Economics. We aim to be intrepid enough to venture into territories unchartered and avenues un-trodden.
Established in the academic year 2010-11 by Poonam Maithani and Shambhavi Sharan, Aapoorti attempts to offer the students a better understanding of the practical application of the various theories and models that we do as a part of our syllabus during the three years to our undergraduation degree as well draw attention to diverse topics that one could possibly muse upon. However, over the years, we have added bits and pieces of our own to this dream, aiming to make it an integral part of our department's identity. Every year we receive entries for the annual edition from colleges all across the country. We have interviewed scholars like Jean Dreze, Lord Meghnad Desai and Jayati Ghosh amongst many others for the same.
In the coming years, we intend to cater to the dream with which the journal was founded- providing a platform for the students to voice their opinion and ideas as well as help them identify with the subject of Economic science in general. We intend to push the frontiers of our imagination further to have a better theoretical understanding of the various topics that the subject is composed of and try to strike a balance between a rigorous research based orientation and creativity.
