Universities and the Universe

posted Oct 5, 2016, 8:41 AM by Sandeep Kulshrestha
The word University comes from the Latin Universitas which means "The Whole". In Hindi, we use the term "Vishwa Vidhyalaya" or a "Global School". Hence the original idea was to have a place or an Institution where an Individual would learn just about anything from Literature to Science to Religion and Philosophy. This was the concept which built world class Institutions and the Reneissance period saw the peak of Creative pursuits as far as the Universal education was concerned.
