Dr. Amit Kumar Srivastava
I welcome all to the revamped version of the college website. I also take the moment as an opportunity to share my views with all stakeholders.
Ninety-seven years have passed smoothly since the inception of the college. In all these years, the academic orchard of the college has grown into a full-fledged garden of excellence. By adopting a non-discriminatory approach in imparting quality education to all irrespective of their class, creed, and religion, the college has lived up to its vision and mission.
The college has had many trysts with history by being the breeding ground of nationalism and patriotism. Under the leadership of the great Chandra Shekhar Azad thousands of freedom fighters thronged every nook and corner of the college building to replenish and renew their patriotic fervour. This historical college has hosted the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi on his visit to Kanpur during the freedom struggle. Students aspiring to be a part of this college ought to realise that they are walking into the annals of history and that they have to further this glorious tradition.
The college has been established upon the ideals of Swami Dayanand Saraswati, who preached that the essence of enlightenment lies in holistic education. The college has remained true to these ideals by inculcating in students highest values and best practices. As a result, alumni of the college, including Bharat Ratna Atal Behari Vajpayee, have excelled in all walks of life.
I once again take this opportunity to thank all alumni, stakeholders, and everyone associated with the college for keeping our glorious tradition alive.
