The Founder Director | Key Student Mentor
I studied at the Lady Shri Ram College (LSR) at the University of Delhi and graduated in the year 1999. As a personal testimonial, I can easily say that I spent the most enriching three years of my life at LSR. Yes, we really loved going to college; not just for the friendship and fun and the liberation and the exhilaration and the energy of that time but also for the challenge, the stimulation, the intellectual deliberation and the amazing classes under the gazebo!
As a strong believer in the process of education as the central solution to all problems ailing our country and the world, I understand that education is a service like no other; its role is towards citizen creation. In that sense, poor education is no education. It’s no service provided. It’s almost like buying a movie ticket, reaching the hall but only to witness a blank screen. So you walk out with an empty experience – what a waste! On the other hand, getting into the right college or university can shape your thinking, build ideologies and give the right momentum to your life.
But this is not easy to achieve;
- Firstly because career management is not introduced early in our lives, it is not a part of the curriculum or does not feature in household discussions until Class XI or XII perhaps.
- Secondly, the commercial messages, lucrative offers and ‘what’s-in-it-for-me’ approach, taken by most counselors and facilitators in the country, is not student-oriented or unbiased.
- Thirdly, we are not trained to think ahead of mediocrity and therefore settle for mediocre education as an available option without even exploring the possibility of getting excellent education.
Today, with more than eleven years of experience in the education sector, I realize that the need of the decade is equitable, fair-minded direction to channelize young minds into aiming higher, planning better and achieving nothing less than the best!
Therefore, in this commercial, concrete jungle of education conglomerates, University Connection is the home bolster – a family of excellence oriented ‘Connects’ that has been established to empower you and your career choices.
