It is a privilege to meet Dr. Madhu Prashar, Principal of this implacable college. I have been to many institution around the world but this has been the best P.G. College. I had ever visited. Here students have been provided the best facilities to take up the challenges of the "real world". This has been possible only because of the hard-work and imagination of Dr. Prashar. She has been tirelessly working to make/ build this oasis in the ferozepur. This is her vision only that she had given a university culture to the college students so that they can compete professionally (by getting campus placements in Infosys and Wipro etc.) and personally (by beating other colleges/universities at National level competitions). Her efforts to build spiritual foundations in students/staff/faculties in unique and is looking in other institutions around the world.
