NARDBAN is a Persian word that means ‘ladder’ or ‘stairway’ – helping one rise to a more cheerful state of mind and a more content disposition. The logo shows the word written in Persian calligraphy, forming a square. It represents a maze through which human emotions find their way, eventually reaching a calmer and happier place. It also represents human figures, portraying different states of human sentiments.

NARDBAN is a fortnightly series initiated by the Department of Behavioural Sciences at School of Social Sciences & Humanities (S3H) on some of the very aspects of grown up life. The idea behind the series is to provide a safe, comfortable and nurturing space to those wanting to talk about their struggles, fears, experiences and aspirations.

The stresses of going from one phase of life to the next – studies, exams, relationships, peer pressure, society’s expectations, and the very highs and lows associated with everyday life, take their toll on our mental and emotional well-being. Perhaps we need someone who tells us to pause, take a deep breath and look inward to thoughts that are dragging us down. Perhaps we need a helping hand that picks us up, a friend that lends an ear to our inner unsettling voices that are often silenced in the noise around our classrooms, labs and cafes. The NARDBAN Talk Series is a step towards nurturing that very self.

The talks will focus on topics ranging from emotional survival and learning life skills, to relationship management and dealing with procrastination. We hope NARDBAN helps to uplift you to embrace a better tomorrow and a happier, more enlightened you!
