HUMANS OF ECONOMICS #17

This name acts as a powerful keynote in the answer to the common uncle,aunty's question,'beta,Kaha admission liya?' Remembering the LSR orientation ceremony when every angle seemed to be raw and new to the current date when everything sounds to be so composed and refined,the motto' That alone is knowledge which leads to liberation' sums up each and every aspect that LSR envelopes within itself,where getting into is itself a blessed dictate of destiny. The more you step into,the more it engulfs you. Entering into the premises when the clock strikes 8:45 to roaming over here till 5:30 or even after that, labouring hard to get attendance,the never ending series of internals,sweating in the last few lectures,sometimes may sound to be a torture but life over here is worth cherishing.Stress of filling forms,rounds of interviews,rejections and selections into the societies and thrilling charm of clubs, fests,Diwali Melas,perfectly moulds the LSR journey,a breathtaking rollercoaster ride. Not forgetting to mention NSS,where I found my niche in, definitely served as a voluntary help towards a social cause!one gets to learn a lot from the brightest talented cream of the nation . Fishing through Mme, microeconomics to econometrics,our life ship has touched the shore of two years(God knows how time flies) in the lush serene ocean lined with the beautiful red walls,that the idea of only one yearr being left to swim here pinches our ship mast. Not following the lineage of Karan Johar's typical portrayal of college life but still having an essence of 'electric blue' atmosphere this college has unfolded me to open my arms and turned an introvert into a talkative naughty streak. This stage (with no male actors) serves as a platform which is a soul source of inspiration to cross the restrictions and the boundaries and climb over the horizon with our own voice,own dignity and most importantly own identity. This 'talk of the town' zestfully promises of a positive transformation of a girl into a complete dignified woman ready to face the world! Gonna probably be best 3 yrs of life!!

‘As soon as you dedicate yourself to a cause, it starts having bearings on the person that you ‘become’- by unbecoming, then becoming, and over and over again - it’s a cycle’ I was born in the city of Jaipur, as ‘Princess of Khimsar’. Most of my early childhood was spent in our ancestral village (Khimsar). I received my education from Mayo College, a boarding school in Ajmer. Later, I pursued my Bachelor’s from Lady Shri Ram College for Women in Delhi before earning a Master's degree from London School Of Economics. My feminist journey originated from my experiences as a small child. Growing up I observed a general respect accorded to the women in my family that starkly contrasted with entrenched patriarchy & subservience of women. My Liberal Arts education afforded me perspective and a freedom to think differently. As a student in LSR, a real impetus to critically examine the world developed because I found it difficult to listen to the same old conversations that reeked of chauvinism and mansplaining. At LSE, I curiously picked ‘Gendered Analysis of the Hindu Epic Ramayan’ for my thesis because the toxic & fragile masculinity modules were of profound interest to me. Throughout my academic years, I felt like I had to constantly prove myself to gain equal opportunities to those of my brother despite my academic accomplishments being far better than his. Even though my brother and I had it comparatively easy for ourselves, there was and still is a vast difference in how most modern families raise their sons and daughters. However, my father wanted his daughter to be this level-headed, independent and strong girl who wouldn’t accept nonsense from anyone. My father presented me with an opportunity to contribute to our hotel business while I was still pursuing post-graduate studies. I was unsure and others dismissed my potential in favor of me becoming a social scholar. Soon after I realized that creative fields can have a low compensation ceiling. Encouraged by my father and inspired by my understanding & confidence assumed from growing up in the family business, I took a leap of faith and created ‘Urvashi’s Retreat’. I grew up as an apologetic kid, often split between two very different worlds. One where I am a citizen in a democratic country expected to lead a certain life. And the other as a princess, where I am automatically placed on a high pedestal. You’re caught off guard because apart from an accidental birth which affords you ostensible prominence, you haven’t really done much on your own merit. This creates an inherent conflict between respecting heritage and denouncing it. 2016 & 2017 were two stressful years in my life. I battled emotional stress, which I then internalized before being diagnosed with clinical depression. I also started experiencing major hair loss & energy fatigue. Many doctors dismissed my problems by saying ‘Oh, there is nothing wrong with you. It’s just the weather or season.’ In 2018, I had to be flown back from Manali after a week-long high fever. The pain in my body worsened to the point where I was unable to even open door handles. After investigating, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Systemic Lupus, (a disease widely known, thanks to Selena Gomez). The following few months were a difficult mix of intensive treatments. I was assigned to bed rest. For 3 long months I stared out of the window watching the world go past me. Eventually, I realized the importance of embracing the moment and became stronger in the face of adversity. The following year, I was diagnosed with class 5 Lupus Nephritis, which causes kidney inflammation when proteins don’t filter out efficiently. My best treatment option was several months of aggressive steroid therapy. The feeling of being estranged, and even lost, catalized my commitment to help those diagnosed with Lupus. I launched Run For Lupus – an initiative to spread awareness through running and social media campaigns. I hope to run with a shirt that says ‘Run for Lupus’. My goal is to raise funds to make an impactful contribution towards Lupus research. #selflove #fightdepression #mentalhealth #lupus #royalfamily #mentalhealthsupport #resilience #loveislove #entreprenuermindset #feminist #manali #wanderlust #rajasthandiaries #girlboss #womenpreneur The London School of Economics and Political Science - LSE Department of Economics, LSR Urvashi's Retreat Lupus Foundation of America
Guidance for good! Hi everyone, I am currently a research assistant for Prof Frank Cowell (LSE), Dr Bill Robinson (Former Chief Economist at KPMG UK), and a bunch of Harvard University-Weiss Family funded projects based in Bihar (India). Previously, I have done my bachelors from Lady Shri Ram College and consequently an MSc in Economics from the London School of Economics. Going forward, I will be starting at Princeton University’s Department of Economics as a pre-doctoral fellow in July. I’m willing to schedule 20 minute 1-on-1 zoom sessions/calls for anyone seeking guidance on foreign masters applications, SOP reviews, general GRE tips, or pre-doc applications and the process. All I request in return is for you to donate any amount feasible for you to an Indian COVID charity of your choice, like The Hemkunt Foundation, Buds, Khalsa Aid, Kisse Kahaniyaan, Uday Foundation, Migrant Workers Solidarity Network, etc and show me the receipt. I’ve been more than happy to help anyone so far in this regard for free but I think now is the time for each one of us to step up and help our nation come out of this crisis! Please feel free to share this in your network and to anyone you think could benefit from this. You can reach me here, on Instagram (@iishivani), on linkedin or email me at [email protected].
