During the Course, the participants are exposed to some 200 lectures on a wide canvas of political, economic and strategic problems. The speakers include politicians, statesmen, administrators, journalists, scientists, historians, economists, philosophers and diplomats. Widest range of thoughts are fearlessly expressed. Just about anybody, who matters in the country, is invited. Such a galaxy is not available in any single institution. The speakers speak freely since the speeches are not to be reported and the students are asked not to discuss anything outside the College. The lecturers are not only heard but probingly questioned. Issues are discussed threadbare and students sharpen their ability of synthesizing thoughts and ideas. There is no attempt to brainwash but catalyse the process of absorption, analysis and synthesis. The mental attitude is outward and forward looking.
