Two Indians are on the shortlist for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2022. Pratik Sinha and Mohammed Zubair are both citizens of India.

The Nobel Prize is awarded to individuals and institutions for their contributions to the world. Various categories are awarded, ranging from physiology or medicine to economics, literature, and peace work. The laureates for each category are announced in October. They will be honored at an awards ceremony held at the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway.
Who Received Nobel Prize in 2022?
The 2022 Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Annie Ernaux of France. She beat out authors Salman Rushdie and Amitav Ghosh. Ernaux’s work explores the complexities and disparities of the human mind. The prize recognizes her courage in revealing the origins of human memory, and the collective restraints on it. The French writer becomes the 17th woman to receive the prize.
In addition to this prize for literature, the 2022 Nobel Prize for economics was given to Douglas Diamond and Philip Dybvig. Both Nobel Prizes recognize the importance of free expression. However, they have very different purposes. One is to protect the environment, the other is to combat global poverty.
Since the Nobel Prize for peace was first awarded in 1901, it has been awarded over the years to a number of recipients, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the World Health Organisation. Other nominees include Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the Russian dissident Alexey Navalny. The winners of the 2022 Nobel Prize for Peace will be announced on 7 October in Oslo, Norway.
The 2022 Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded to Swedish geneticist Svante Paabo. The award is a prize that will be worth 10 million Swedish crowns. Svante Paabo’s work has given us a better understanding of the origins of our species.
The 2022 Nobel Prize for Physics went to Alain Aspect and John Clauser. The pair discovered that ancient humans had evolved in caves, and the DNA they possessed was still present in modern humans. They later found that some populations of humans had 6 percent of the Denisovan DNA.
The three nominees for the Nobel Prize for Peace Prize this year come from Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine. They have a common goal, which is to fight for peace and human rights. Their work is very important and the Nobel Committee said they represent the civil society in their home countries.
In the world of peace, religious extremism is a major problem. It not only promotes discrimination but also sparks armed conflict between different groups. For this reason, it is important to combat religious extremism and promote interreligious dialogue. The Karwan-e-Mohabbat campaign is a worthy cause for the prize.
