They have taken over the reins of administration of these institutions in an admirable mannaer. The Chairman had foreseen the birth of a great University in the name of Jawaharlal Nehru University.

India has always been in the forefront of education. Vedas are the oldest texts known to man. The name Vedas originated from the word vid meaning “to know”. The Vedas proudly proclaimed ‘pragnanam Bramaha” meaning knowledge is God.
India was great till she was receptive to the voices around the world. Now India has a demographic advantage of having the world’s largest youth population. If we want to rise again we have to make use of this youth power, nurture it, so that we might be able to get the old glory back. For this we have to be open and receptive to the changes taking place around the world. We must keep updated about the developments and seize the opportunity as and when it arises. The opening up of the Indian economy has thrown open our windows to the world.
