‘A determined mind is the path to glory’ is the timeless doctrine of success. It is the mind that houses all hopes, all dreams, ability to span all depths, all heights and all destinations, and it is by determination that the goals are fixed and there is nothing beyond you. Such is its strength that the darkness illuminates and the glory is yours. When you enter for the new academic session into the premises of this august institution, have that determination in mind, feel that you are no more your own self but rather the part of a great tradition, a culture that this land represents; explore yourself to find in you beyond an individual a nation or rather a mankind. You are in an era when there is no present, no past : it is only a lustrous tomorrow that we, the teachers and the taught, weave together.
When you are here in the premises of MGSM Janta College, you feel, beyond its physical boundaries, and also beyond its brick-structure, the fragrance of Master Gurbanta Singh’s dream that he had in his eyes when he founded this institution some 48 years ago. You see a pair of eyes looking at you with hopes. You hear a voice calling upon you ‘move forward, we are there to assist you.’ A visionary, he had in his vision an institution that enabled generations of man to see things in right perspective, enter into depth and explore new horizons. On equal footings to those who have, he founded this institution for educating those who haven’t the means to rise to the occasion.
Respecting his sentiments the college has named itself ‘Janta’ College; ‘janta’ being the most essential segment of the college’s name, and also its timeless conscience. The institution calls upon you : ‘Hopes are yours, dreams yours, we would only instill in you enthusiasm and the desire to move forward.’ And, accordingly, with proud legacy of five decades, the College has excelled in every field. Excellence that was the founder’s vision makes our distinction. Ch. Jagjit Singh, the torch-bearer, led further the vision of the founder. The college aims at promoting a climate of rational thinking, competence, and spirituality beside distinctive achievements in the academic and cultural fields. The college has excelled so far in different fields.
I feel proud to acknowledge the contribution of highly qualified dynamic and multitalented faculty, non-teaching staff and my students for adding the feathers to cap of this esteemed institution. We have to continue to move ahead for producing and maintaining the best. Our teachers work hard throughout the year with students to provide them high quality educational experience in the form of debates, group discussions, workshops, seminars, sports events and cultural competitions. The Eminent personalities are invited from all walks of life to address our students and expose them new ideas and thoughts.
Dear students, undoubtedly success matters the most. Everyone aims to reach the heights. But we believe that in such a race the values should not be compromised. We firmly believe the education without values is education without heart and soul. So along with gist on academic and co-curricular activities, we do try to shape up good Human Beings.
This college is a set of a beautiful green spacious Campus with discipline and hardwork as its foundation stone under the guidance of astute staff. We target a blissful and successful life. My best wishes to the new students entering Master Gurbanta Singh Memorial Janta College. I strongly believe that : “All odds, all challenges and all handicaps of life can be overcome with strong determination, persistent hard work, insurmountable patience and unshakable tenacity.Dr. Pretty Sodhi
