O.P. Jindal Global University: Where History, Civilization, and Education Converge is a collector?s edition that situates India?s No.1 private university in the imagination of a region that has been the cradle of Indian civilisation where the Indus Valley flourished, where our great epics were told, where the first global trade route was e...stablished and where many decisive battles have been waged. Centuries of seekers and travellers have passed by where the university stands today. The book is the journey of an institution juxtaposed with the journey of a civilization annotated with stories by eminent historians and writers.
The 128-page coffee table book is a visual journey with rare archival pictures, maps, illustrations, and images that are both informative and pictorial.
Shot against the backdrop of rural Haryana where the university is located, the images focus on symmetry, line, shadow, and colour, allowing the abstract and the contemporary to stand out and demand our attention. It captures details of what we would otherwise not notice.
The book gives a glimpse of a verdant green campus with its birds and flora and takes us through the transformation of a young institution aspiring to build the ecosystem of tomorrow?s higher education.
