Gargi College was named after a great female philosopher of ancient India, Gargi Vachaknavi, one of the first few feminists known to the world at the time. Named after such a fascinating and honorary personality, the institution tries to imbibe the essence of the same more and more with each passing year and it being a part of our legacy is what we value and honour the most.
Gargi has always been an institution which proudly sits as one of the jewels of University of Delhi and it fills my heart with extreme joy that I got an opportunity to be a part of this exemplary institution, a place which has given me more than I could have ever expected or imagined.
Gargi is a home to many, it is a place where people have found their people, a place where people have found their purpose and is a place where people have found themselves. An institution which acts like a mirror that shows one their true potential and empowers them to achieve it in many known and unknown ways alike, whose task of exploration I’ll leave up to you all.
Gargi offers a perfect blend of academic as well co-curricular opportunities and makes an individual ready for the world outside the comfort and safety of these red walls. Individuals who have walked these red corridors of Gargi, having a certain bleak aroma signifying its uniqueness and humbleness, have turned out to be some of the most polished and successful individuals of the society making our alumni network stronger than ever and us prouder than ever. It gives us immense pride to know that our students are excelling in various diverse fields and are carving their name on the pages of history. The credit for the same should be given to the environment Gargi aims at embodying and facilitating, through its various and absolutely brilliant cultural and non-cultural societies, teaching community and most importantly through the student community whose diverse opinions, thoughts and perspective and willingness to be a part of the conversation makes it a place ever striving for betterment and achieving the said eminence it is very known for.
Gargi’s students have always had a special relationship with its ever beautiful red walls. These classic red walls are not just an aesthetic background for students’ photographs but rather are the walls which have seen the journey of this institution and of each one of its students, from their incubation to their rise in the world, and I believe it is safe to say, that it will continue to do so for immeasurable years to come.
As the Student Council President, I want you all to know that I am here for you all and will always be, and shall try my best to honour the responsibility and privilege that has been given to me.
I assure you all that I will try my very best to ensure that each and every individual belonging to this institution feels comfortable and at home within the walls of Gargi and are provided with all the opportunities that it has to offer in addition to the empowerment, motivation and appreciation that you all deserve.
I wish to contribute whatever I can within my capacity to make your time enjoyable here, with the hope that in future when you’ll look back, you will fondly remember the time that you have spent here, as a part of the Gargi Community.
