The Shodh Yatri Programme is a unique programme initiated by Ms Smriti Zubin Irani, former Minister for Human Resource Development to encourage students to do research on India’s contributions and influences as well as areas of contacts between India and other countries in the neighbourhood. In the process, the research findings will also trace the Indian roots in the evolution of their control and heritage. The countries thus identified for the Shodh Yatri Programme include Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
In pursuing this programme the Ministry of Human Resource Development in association with Indian Council of Historical Research, Central Board of Secondary Education and National Book Trust, India organised an all India Online Contest to select students who could be part of the Programme.
The contest was open to students of classes X and XI, across all Boards of School Education and schools in the country. The contest included writing an essay on the theme at the MyGov.in website.
40 students (20 boys and 20 girls) were shortlisted for the interview which was conducted through Skype, of which ten students were selected as winners.
