The college has been named after Gargi, an ancient Indian Woman Scholar whose name figures in the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad of the Vedic age. She posed very penetrating and intellectual questions to her guru, the great sage Yagnyavalkya. The guru has no answers to offer, to questions raised by her. The intellectual vigour and persistence with which she questions the Guru symbolizes yearning for knowledge and the spirit of enquiry. It is our hope and endeavour that young girls will keep the spirit of Gargi alive.
Welcome to Gargi College and rediscover yourself.
