We introduce ourselves as ‘People’s Reflections’, a Platform made for people where one can express views, opinions, and thoughts on any subject. The only condition is the write-up shall be original and not published already on any platform/ website.

Competitions are the best way to motivate talented people to present their thoughts and encourage their talent before a large audience.

We are happy to announce once again a ‘Writing Competition’ for the month of April - 2022 and invite budding writers, journalists, students, and authors to express their views.

After organising writing competitions on versatile topics, we have thought of attempting an exceptional theme for April 2022 Competition i.e. “Taboo”

Taboo refers to any action or practice which may have been restricted or considered unusual by social customs. It is considered a prohibition of social activities based on some false and misled beliefs that performing taboos is either too scary or too bizarre. There are countless distinct taboos and related concepts in India and across the world. And now it’s time to explore this unique concept through your writings. Thus, we invite you to express your thoughts exclusively and extensively on the theme of “Taboo”.

Note: Any topic apart from the theme of Taboo will not be accepted.

We hope, our writers will appreciate and enjoy writing something different this time.

Also, you can view the results of the previous Writing Competitions:
