Education has been a key component in the freedom struggles of many oppressed groups. It is an empowering tool that can unshackle the prisons of the mind. It has the radical potential to transform the self and society. It must not be understood as merely book learning or acquiring a degree but lead to the opening up of the possibilities of the self and therein may reside the seeds of social change.
College life marks a moment of transition from the protective environs of the world of the school to the challenges posed by the world out there. Especially for girls it holds the promise of a fuller freedom. As someone who has newly assumed charge as the Principal of this college, I wish to see each student of Lakshmibai College tap her potential to the full. The College must give her the space to discover her own voice and hitherto hidden capabilities as well as a place for herself under the sun. The student’s individual growth will ensure that the College evolves as an institution.
I hope to see each student soar heights and the College must be the wind beneath her wings, buoying her flight to the outermost horizons of knowledge.
