6 004 A Foreign Affair that Founded Symbiosis The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. But, it is the first step that involves deliberation and much hesitation. The Symbiosis journey however began with a surge of enthusiasm spurred on by an incident that, in itself, makes a poignant tale. It was an afternoon on a hot day. I was standing near the window of my house overlooking the first hostel block, of which I was the rector. A strange thing happened. A girl walked up to the window of the boys' hostel room, quickly handed over something and disappeared. My curiosity was aroused and I kept watching the girl walking up to the window day after day and suspected, like any other rector would, that an affair was afoot. So one day, I made up my mind and walked up to the door and knocked. When the door opened, I saw a Mauritian student lying in bed. His face was pale and his eyes seemed to have sunken low. I was puzzled. When I turned to the boy for an explanation, he said, ' Sir, I have an attack of jaundice & I'm feeling extremely weak. I cannot stand up, nor walk a few steps. A girl from my country brings me food. However, since ladies are not allowed to enter the boys' hostel, she hands over the tiffin box through the window.' I was stunned. After all, it wasn't the type of 'affair' I had expected. I was very much pained & decided something had to be done about this. That was the instance, the golden moment that Symbiosis was born. Symbiosis is a term in life science, meaning 'living together of two different organisms, for the benefit of each other'. Dr. Mujumdar, himself a professor of botany, thought this name apt for the institution. Thus the institution was founded to alleviate the problems faced by foreign students coming to India. At the time, these problems included - accommodation, meals, medical care, guidance, coaching, information about the city, etc. Symbiosis has come a long way since then. Today it is a home to students from more than 80 different countries. These students are offered the best learning resources, industry exposure, a strong international students' alumni network, a global recognition, and above all, a truly enriching Indian experience.
7 005 Message by Chancellor I extend a warm welcome to all of you as you join the Symbiosis family. The University is part of the larger Symbiosis family, which is built on the core ideals of Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam - the world is one family. You will find a wealth of opportunities as you begin your journey of higher education, which is about academics, of course, but also a lot more. It is our goal that we succeed in shaping our students to be responsible members of the global citizenry. Symbiosis is appreciative of the enormous responsibility that befalls higher education institutions. I encourage you to avail of all the wonderful teaching-learning and research possibilities that are offered. We, at Symbiosis, believe that play belongs to education as much as studies; therefore, we offer a whole range of first-rate choices that contribute to personal capacity building, such as those in career enhancement, extracurricular activities and recreational facilities. You will find wonderful prospects to share this journey with students from over eighty-five countries and from all over India. We also pride on having with us an amazing pool of talent in our teaching staff, many of whom are noted academics, with substantial international experience. All in all, the educational experience at Symbiosis is designed to be wholesome and one that is authentically international. I hope that your experience at Symbiosis will afford you the opportunities to apply your talents and inspirations to the best use. May God bless you! Padma Bhushan Dr. S. B. Mujumdar Chancellor
