He had the skill and the experience to address this Herculean task and he brought together seven distinguished people who were the whos-who of the academic field. They were not merely degree holders or people from the corporate world but were individuals who knew the dynamics of education from inside out. A trust was set up in the name of Lok Jagruti Kendra. This trust, then, went on to define the parameters on which the college would function.
