theGIST is a magazine constituted with the sole purpose of providing intellectual support to pre-university students that exceeds the scope of their current teaching and guidance. Every university demands their prospective students to have an evergrowing curiosity about their subject and a passion that drives their endeavour within the subject which is what this magazine hopes to incite. But most importantly, theGist aims to encourage polymathic studies - those involving more than one branch of knowledge. We live in an interconnected world where familiarity with a broad range of disciplines is critical for success. By distributing this knowledge, we hope to enhance and nurture minds that may revolutionise the course of history.
