CONFLUENCE (An Introduction)
The woods are lovely,dark and deep,but I have promises to keep,and miles to go before I sleep.......(ROBERT FROST)
The "Civics Society" , , since its inception has been an active forum of interaction among the pupil teachers.These batches of motivated "gurus" have upheld the honour and image of the institution by encouraging new ideas and achieving excellence in all walks of life. They,having crossed the dreadful ocean through their efforts have also helped others to cross it. It is therefore, evident that there exist a treasure of ideas and experiences scattered all around us in the form of these dynamic and magnanimous "gurus" which needs to be harvested. The "Civics Society",CIE has taken the initiative to establish a platform to bring together all the members of "Civics Society" (Present and Past),every year in the form of an association named "CONFLUENCE".As the name suggest, this would be a platform to interact, share ideas and enrich each other with one's valuable experiences. This will also go a long way in providing first hand guidance to the current batch of "Future Gurus".

The first ‘Confluence’ of Civics Society, CIE was held on January 14, 2006. Prof. R.P. Sharma was the chief guest for the occasion and Prof. U.S. Sharma along with prominent members of CIE academic faculty graced the event with their presence. The programme began with a welcome address by Deepak Kanoujia, President, Civics Society. It was followed by a beautiful inspirational song which set the tune for the rest of the day’s events. Dr. Pankaj Arora, Head, Department of Civics, under whose innovative and able guidance ‘Confluence’ was made possible, briefed the alumni about the significance of this platform and their role and contribution towards making it a success. Prof. R.P Sharma who has been a pillar of CIE greatly appreciated the endeavour of civics society and called ‘Confluence’ a ‘Sangam’ of great minds. Prof. U.S. Sharma, Head and Dean, CIE, expressed his happiness at the innovative use of technology to begin a new phase in civics teaching and felt the need for having such platforms in other disciplines as well. The session after the tea break began with a self introduction round by the alumni and the current batch, thereby creating a comfortable environment for everyone to know each other better. This was followed by a panel discussion which addressed some common issues and problems faced by the Political Science teaching fraternity. The open session invited specific queries of the pupil-teachers. This session proved to be very fruitful for all as many doubts got cleared and opinions formed. The programme ended on a pleasant note and an invitation was extended to the civics alumni for all future ‘Confluences’.
