History and Motivation

SCM was envisioned in 2013 by Saurabh Nanda when he realised that parents, students and educators are not exposed to trends happening around them, trends which are shaping our immediate futures. It finally took the pandemic to help convert these thoughts into a tangible forum. The real trigger was one of the horrible side-effects of the lockdown. In April 2020, an ex-student of Saurabh reached out to him for help. Since the lockdown began, this ex-UPSC aspirant was being mentally tortured every single day at home by his family because he was homosexual, and he did not know how to deal with it. Even today, millions of Indians and people across the world face discrimination at various levels for various things. These conversations aim at creating more awareness in a scientific, data oriented discourse to dispel myths and create a healthy open forum for discussion.
