Rationale of Logo
Any change that broadens our horizon, and is positive and inclusive is for the better. The logo adopted by the institution recently, depicts ‘Srivatsa’ or “the endless knot”. The Srivatsa has rich significance in Indian Symbolism- in the religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Chief among its varied interpretations is that it represents the interplay of opposite forces in the world and a final merging of the dual, leading to harmony. It binds and connects all the stakeholders- the teacher and the learner at one level; and at another level connects the individual units of the institution to make it a harmonious whole. The ‘endless knot’ signifies the continuous process of learning which has neither a beginning nor an end. In the Tibetian branch of Buddhism the endless knot signifies both wisdom and compassion which are essential in making the teaching-learning process meaningful and productive. Finally, the logo in its digitized version embodies the institution’s blend of tradition and technology – a blend that signifies change and evolution at the individual and collective level and finally the societal level.
