Miranda House, established in 1948, is one of the premier institution for women in India. Situated in the North Campus of University of Delhi, Miranda House or more familiarly MH is full of energy and thriving opportunities. Recently ranked no.1 in India by NIRF, Miranda House is the place of building a great future.
When I first stepped inside, the greenery around MH attracted me. The atmosphere was totally different from the outside world. When called inside the department for interview, I was scared from the beginning because of the perception that college teachers are strict and rude. But I was greeted well and they behaved so politely that I kept wondering why they are being so polite. After 2 years, the faculty is as sweet as day one.
Miranda is hub of various opportunities. As I am a chess player, the timings for practice are so flexible that one would not have to think twice before continuing with two activities. Classical and western dance societies are delight to viewers eye which mesmerizes audience when they perform. We have Lakshita, society for PWD students where anyone can volunteer and help them to facilitate their stay at Miranda. English and Hindi drama societies are very active, specially the later who performs nukkad natak outside the college.Alongside, NCC, NSS, music societies, Vivekananda circle, Gandhi circle are also there. The societies are active outside Delhi university and keeps participating in fests like IIT Kanpur's, IIT Bombay's Mood Indigo, etc.
Tempest, Miranda's annual fest attracts wide audience. The two days fests include one EDM night, one star night, with various colleges taking part in the dance competitions organised by MH's societies. The 'food fair' on both days is delight to tummy.
The placement cell has attracted various MNCs across the globe. Miranda House has produced Rhodes scholars, IAS, etc in recent years.
The infrastructure has been developing. The auditorium is under construction but would not take much time. Three apps for students of Miranda House is yet to launch which would deal with attendance, events and problems related to furnitures respectively. Miranda House is the first college in Delhi university to install scanners for blind students which would help them with directions.
The Library is the place for everyone cause it just doesn't attract only nerds but every sort of crowd. With magazines, books of all sorts of competitive exam, library serves the students best.
Now if anyone is wondering about affordability, the fees we pay for humanities is 10k per year. No T&C applied. The hostel with all the facilities is the cheapest in Delhi university and is approximately 5k per month including food, electricity, etc.
Having been to various colleges of DU, I found Miranda's canteen with widest options at cheapest price.
If you are an outsider and wondering when to visit, admission days are the right time. If you are looking for the best college for yourself or your girl, Miranda House is just the right place.
