I congratulate Prof. Swaran Singh, Dr. Reena Marwah and the AAS team for taking the initiative to organise weekly webinars by distinguished experts of global repute. These contribute towards enhancing critical thinking among scholars and policymakers on contemporary issues and have kept the academic spirit alive. I have attended many AAS webinars and find them quite engaging and enriching. One of the most positive points of these webinars is that each participant is given a chance to interact with the speakers.
