Universities ..

What a University stands for?

This was the question asked by our chairman during one of the usual farewell parties at Indian Institute of Science. Deliver higher education, teach and model students to be good citizens, getting good jobs and command respect… answers flooded across from different corners.
Universities are the cradle of culture... How accurate was his answer..!!
It teaches nothing other than culture and values. Universities light the lamps of characteristics which evolve from the right mix of students, researchers and faculties with diverging streams of thoughts and rituals from different spectra of society. And it assimilates the virtue of this mixed culture, adds and transmits among others.
What else can bring about such a revolutionary enlightenment to the society?
