I take this opportunity as a very proud student to thank the other contributors whose value addition in the making of this project cannot be undermined. Let me start with my parents who sent me the financial back-up to study in this university and arrange facilities so that I can study and flourish without much trouble, without which I could not have possibly been able to compile this project. Next come my batch-mates who have contributed both intellectually by discussing on the topic and non-intellectually by letting me have all the peace of the world when I needed to concentrate. The staff, especially Dr. D Anand who has patiently put up with us in class and answered all our queries and introduced us to the higher level of social thinking, More than being a direct contributor, it has been his unwavering sincerity and dedication to the profession of teaching, which is such an immense rarity at our university that has vastly inspired me to make a project with a degree of hard work that would only befit their high standards and I must thank them. It is essential also that I thank the library staff and the IT section staff without whose help the project they would not have been finished in time. Lastly, let me thank all the authors, writers, columnist and social thinkers whose ideas and works have been made use of in the completing of this project Last but not the least, I also take this opportunity to thank all those people who contribute in their own small ways but fail to get a mention.
