जानकी देवी मेमोरियल कॉलेज से मेरा वही रिश्ता है जो किसी बेटी का अपने पीहर से होता है। यह सच भी JDMC हमेशा मुझे अपना परिवार लगा, जहाँ मैंने जीवन जीने का सलीका सीखा और अपनी खुद की खोज की। सोचती हूँ आज जिस पद पर हूँ, वहां तक पहुंचने का हौसला, अनुशासन और संस्कार कहाँ से मिला। अपनी पुरानी स्मृतियों को टटोलती हूँ तो पाती हूँ आज जो कुछ भी उसमें JDMC की निर्णायक भूमिका है। एक छात्र के रूप में 1982 से 1987 तक मैंने इसी कॉलेज से बीए और एमए किया। इन पाँच वर्षों में मैंने विश्वविद्यालय स्तर पर अपनी जो छवि निर्मित की वह आज तक मेरे साथ ससम्म्मान जुड़ा हुआ है। JDMC आयी तो थी मैं एक सामान्य छात्रा की तरह जिसके जीवन में कोई महत्वाकांक्षा नहीं थी लेकिन वहां के माहौल और वातावरण ने मुझे एक नया जीवन दिया। मुझे विशेष बनाया।ऐसे सहपाठी दिए जो आजतक मेरे साथ परिवार की तरह जुड़े हैं। ऐसे अध्यापक दिए जिन्होंने मुझे गढ़ा, बनाया और समाज में संघर्ष करना सिखाया। इतना ही नहीं यह भी सिखाया कि जब परिस्थितियां बिलकुल प्रतिकूल
हों तो उससे पार कैसे होना है। एक छात्र के रूप में मैं भी प्रत्येक उस सामान्य सी मध्यमवर्गी छात्र की अभिलाषाओं के साथ यहाँ आयी थी जो पढाई के बाद एक नौकरी कर अपने परिवार का साथ देना चाहती थी लेकिन JDMC ने परिवार के दायरे से निकाल समाज के लिए जीना सीखा दिया साथ ही यह भी सिखाया कि व्यक्ति को अपनी अस्मिता और नाम के साथ जीना दुनियाँ का सबसे बड़ा सुख है। एक डिबेटर के रूप में मेरी ख्याति देश भर में बनी तो उसमें भी मेरे कॉलेज की ही भूमिका है। मुझे यह बताते हुए गर्व होता है कि मैंने यहाँ 5 वर्ष के अध्ययन के दौरान विभिन्न प्रतियोगिताओं में 800 से पुरस्कार हासिल किए। मैं अपने आपको सौभाग्यशाली मानती हूँ कि मैं यहाँ की छात्र रही हूँ। आज भी जब मौका मिलता है या यहाँ बुलाया जाता है तो मैं ना नहीं कर पाती।

  • I am originally from Patna and when I started my study at JDMC, I was still a teenager who had just moved to a new city in pursuit of a college degree. It was my first time away from home and my parents and to add to my stress I was doing Maths Honours. God, it was tough and emotionally stressful! However, with the support of my teachers and the friends I made at JDM, I managed to cope up with the pressure and secure a first class degree. It was an achievement for me! The teachers in Maths department were friendly and helpful. In fact, the overall environment at JDM was warm and I had a pleasant time.

I want to pursue for Ph.D and contribute my knowledge towards the society of Mathematics. Furthermore, I want to inspire young minds to pursue maths as a career and not be scared of this subject. My aim is to help the students see the beauty of maths and how easy it can be, once you understand it.

Deeksha Bhardwaj

  • The best part about the whole three years of graduation for me personally was the interaction I had with the teachers of our department. Contrary to popular theories of teachers not caring much about your studies and being strict with marks and unhelpful with doubts regarding the curriculum, I personally found the teachers to be very friendly, strict when the need be, but there was never a moment when a teacher said no to clarifying my doubts in or outside the classroom. Apart from that, I found them to be very encouraging when it came to co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Their enthusiasm and belief in our capabilities is what instilled in us the confidence to do better.

  • My time in college has enriched my life in many ways. It has given me a chance to sharpen my skills in my field of choice and opportunities to learn new things. It has provided me with the necessary tools to enhance my skills more, taught me valuable knowledge about this diverse world and people and concepts in general and eventually will enable me to hopefully become more successful in life when I finally graduate from this college.

  • Exactly how it was meant to be. Academics, non-academic lessons, that are going to be in my mind throughout my life. Thankful for each & every person I met there. Professors,  their guidance & support, all were there when I needed the most. JDMC made me level up. What else am I supposed to write. I was kind of anti-social student. Didn't interacted with everyone,  didn't participate in anything still got the support & guidance when I asked. Grateful, all I have to say.
