Making the dream a reality! by Shri Samir Somaiya

My grandfather said, why not Somaiya. I said, no Chemical Engineering here, and Cornell is far better than Somaiya. He did not mind that. But said, ‘Go, but promise me, that when you return, in your lifetime, you will try to make our institutions to good, that if a candidate applies to Cornell, he/she will also apply to Somaiya’. And he allowed me to fly.
He traded dreams. Made my dreams his, and his mine. How powerful!!

2018 the year gone by!

We continued building infrastructure for our institutions.

Infrastructure designed to incorporate being in touch with nature in our daily lives. Infrastructure that contributes to the development of our students and society.
