  • "Character of an institution" has been wrongly interpreted by many. It was a slippery one. Here one had to explain how an institution's character moulds the leader. For instance no matter what personality uddhav or aditya thakrey have in general, they will hav to take radical stance to lead shiv sena. not the other way round.of course counter points wud b there. Those who hav wrongly interpreted and wrote the opposite are at risk of getting low marks.

    dear dhruvtara
    first of all, let me tell you that no interpretation is wrong in essay if you are able to justify it. these are highly subjective things and can be argued in different context.
    in the solutions of essay, it is argued that a new institution is shaped by its leaders. however, when the institution gets mature, it starts creating leaders through impart of attributes. both sides have been taken. your uddhav or aditya thakrey thought has also been catered in one paragraph.
    i can't say that this essay is the best one, but definitely a good one. i'll be very happy if someone writes a better essay than this one and post it on forumias.

    First ur statement that no interpretation is wrong if u r able to justify is quite naive. U cant just assume any interpretation u feel and then justify it. Answer has to be what the topic demands. Second, yes the essay should be holistic but there has to be a proper structure. The topic says " A reflects B". Now one cannot start his essay with how B reflects A and then later give points how A shapes B. It has to be the opposite as per d demand of the topic. I too misinterpreted and now repenting for my negligence. It would b my advise to future aspirants not to attempt such topics where one has a doubt.

  • I don't agree that in character institutions leader essay...it is 100 percent clear tat question demands institutions character on leader etc.I feel it depends how u present ur essay and regarding low marks .essay is so subjective no one can say wat is right or wrong.
    plus I took stand in introduction part itself...it's leader whose personality gets reflected in institutions.
    And then historical, political, social,etc perspectives. And example of leaders.
    Let's see wat happens.

  • i dont think the examiner would count. Simply put it just shud not be too short or too long. 800 words is just fine.

    true story. i remembr in 2012 i attempted the "women with dual responsibilities at home and work" topic. since socio was one of my optional i thought i wrote a good essay. However got only around 35% marks. I realized later that i deviated from the topic by highlighting more on patriarchy, sexual division of labour, role of culture,etc rather than dealing with what was actually asked. Hence it is very imp to stick to what is being demanded rather than just unloading theorems and facts.

  • Reflection can be both ways in my opinion
    ·
  • Shaping and reflection are two different things

    I guess the common inference here is reflection= influence. It may be correct but I doubt it .
