The journal of philosophy, Pratibimba, a student research journal was a dream that president of Sophia Club Mr. Akash Dayal had seen which was realized by the students of the club, under the guidance of mentor Dr. Anthony Savari Raj, Professor & Head, Department of Philosophy. The journal was inaugurated on 13th April, 2017. The auspicious event was anchored by Mr Akash. The candle lighting was done by Prof. Sandeep Sancheti, President, MUJ, Prof Kumkum Garg, Pro President, MUJ and other Deans, Directors and HoDs of Manipal University Jaipur.
Prof Mridula Srivastava, Dean, FoA&L, expressed her immense pleasure and pride at the launch of the journal. She expressed her happiness as the club is constantly growing and the journal is yet another milestone in its glorious path.
Dr. Anthony sir, then graced the event by his kind words. He emphasised on the sickness of individualism and ‘social amnesia’. We need an instrument for expression, a passage, a reflection that touches the real concerns of the society. A project like this in our times has its own significance. He also emphasised on the power of words. He appreciated the authors and set his hopes high for this journal to continue.
Prof. Sancheti congratulated everyone on the success of the journal. He accentuated on the idea of reading more, understanding more and discussing more.
