CONTEXT

All India Educational Institutes or National Institutes and Premier Educational Institutes are an epitome of excellence in all the educational domains they represent. More often than not, the patriotic fervour of students and graduates from these institutes are unfortunately doused. The penchant for the serving academics & research therefore drives them to find right places across the globe to contribute to the mankind. These greats continue to inspire the youth of our nation since decades.

We at Think India have felt the need to bind the students with an Indian nationalistic string to harness this part of national treasure in furthering our aim of national reconstruction.
