Log In

Everyone who joins this organisation has to submit a self-introduction or personal statement. The idea is to give the other members sufficient information so they know who you are, as well as anything else that you want to share with them. Just imagine you are sat on a plane next to a person of your age and you discover they are also from Rajdhani. Write down what you would you want to tell them about yourself to make friends.[Please bear in mind that this information will be “published”, so anyone can read it therefore do not include any information that you wish to keep private.]

  • School Children and College/University Students: You can write about what you are studying, your favourite subject(s), spare time activities, and future plans.
  • Working People: Tell us what you do for a living, a bit about your past and your future plans. If you have any specialist knowledge or skills, or interests, and of course your thoughts on taking this project forwards.
  • Others (Retired People, Housewives, Long-term ill or Disabled): Please tell us about your situation so that others may learn from your experiences. If you are not able to join the website, then you can contribute indirectly by telling your story to another member as an interview or conversation.In addition, it would be nice if everyone could write a paragraph about they think of the Rajdhani Connections project – what you can bring to it and what you expect to take from it. Also any ideas and suggestions for improvement are most welcome.After you have done the personal introductory piece, you may write about any subject, fact or fiction, prose or poetry, within the following guidelines:
  1. Contributors must hail from Rajdhani or have a strong affiliation. Outsiders can contribute but the articles must be about Rajdhani or its people, or be of direct interest or benefit to the people of Rajdhani.
  2. Contributions can be written in English, Urdu, or Pahari/Pothwari using either Urdu or English alphabet. Guidance is available on request for writing Romanised Pahari/Pothwari. Written pieces should be 100-500 words. Longer ones may be serialised.
  3. Mention of any real persons (living or deceased) should be in good light and never be derogatory or libellous. You should seek the permission of the person you are mentioning or their next-of-kin in the case children or deceased persons.
  4. All work submitted for publication must be the author’s own original work. You can include quotes from others’ work (with references) but no plagiarism please.

Thank you.
