St . Stephen'S College
St, Stephen's College, which celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2006, has a special niche among educational institutions of excellence, not only in Delhi but also all over India. Apart from its revered internal traditions, the college has also been an integral part of the social and structural changes that have taken place in the nation. And it has been the school for a long and impressive alumni list that includes sportspersons, writers, poets, actors, journalists, entrepreneurs, politicians, bureaucrats, ambassadors, technocrats and corporate executives. This volume, written by Ashok Jaitly, a former student, traces the history of the college from its original conception by the Cambridge Mission as an institution for higher education in 1881, and covers the travails of the freedom struggle, the partition and independence, as well as the present world of relentless academic pressures, sporting compulsions and ever-expanding opportunities. During all these turbulent and exciting years, St. Stephen's College has stood firm for certain fundamental values, which celebrate cosmopolitanism, pluralism, a degree of iconoclasm along with an immense enjoyment of learning in the widest sense.
About the Author
Ashok 'Tony'Jaitly was at St. Stephen's College from 1958-1961 where he studied economics (classmates say, 'in exception'), played football and badminton (teammates say, 'on occasion'), was active in the Shakespeare Society (theatre-mates say, 'with trepidation'), indulged in sundry other activities (conspirators assert, 'without hesitation'), and made many lifelong friends. After completing his economics tripos from Cambridge University in 1964, he was selected for the Indian Administrative Service and served in Jammu & Kashmir and with the Government of India on several interesting and important assignments, including a few that sparked controversy. He retired as Chief Secretary, J&K, after a record tenure of more than five years, from 1996-2002. Currently working as a Distinguished Fellow at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in New Delhi on rural development issues, his primary concerns are water, rural energy and decentralized governance.
