Mr. Rahul Devkar

It has been great pleasure to be the student of Vidyabharati Mahavidyalay. I completed both my junior and senior college at this prestigious college. I remember two immemorable incidents from my entire college life. First is when I got selected for general science stream despite of my humble background and Marathi medium. I was first in my family to get admission in science stream. And second incident is when I applied for the degree after my backlogs in law to BA. All the colleges rejected my readmission. But when I met Dr Gajanan Bansod sir who was admission in-charge at that time. He asked me some questions and agreed to give me admission on terms of good study. Although many things I remember as good memories of my life but due to time constraints it's not possible. I would like to share all my ups and downs and experiences with upcoming student. Thanks everyone for wonderful college life.
