Inspired By The Ideals Of ‘Vishwa Bharati’ Of Gurudev Tagore And ‘Antar Bharati’ Of Sane Guruji And With A Deep Desire To Help Foreign Students, An Idea Of ‘Symbiosis’ Was Conceived By Dr. S. B. Mujumdar In Year 1971. The Motto Of Symbiosis Is ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. Indeed, The Motto Is Aptly Justified In Symbiosis’ Functioning Pattern As It Proves To Be A Ground That Nurtures And Cares For All Students Immaterial Of Their Backgrounds.

Value in the Name

The Basic Value Thread At Symbiosis Is That Of Caring And Nurturing. The Thread Expands Into A Finely Woven Symbiotic System Where Thousands Benefit. The Name Symbiosis Was Coined With A Special Meaning – That Of Allowing Various International Cultures To Culminate At A Point And Grow Together. The Idea Was To Promote A Healthy And Nurturing Atmosphere For All Students And The Term ‘Symbiosis’ Perfectly Suited As It Stands For Co Habitat Of Biological Systems.

Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – The World Is One Family

In Ancient Hindu And Vedic Philosophy, The World Was Construed As A Huge Family. The Vedic Civilization Did Not Regard The Geographical Boundaries As A Division Of The World. The Thought That The Entire Earth Is United In Essence And A Huge Family Imprinted On The Vedic Lifestyle. The Sanskrit Phrase, ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (The Earth Is A Single Family) Signifies This Thought. Inspired By This Philosophy, Dr. Mujumdar Put His First Steps Forward As He Created A Blueprint For Symbiosis In 1971. He Truly Believed That The Various Foreign Students Studying At His Institution Were All Part Of A Huge Family.

Through His Experience At The Fergusson College, He Pondered On The Difficulties Faced By Foreign Students. Thus In 1971 He Established “Symbiosis”, Which Means ‘Living Together Of Two Different Organisms For Mutual Benefit’. Therefore, The Main Dictum At Symbiosis Is “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”.
