Our logo is the symbolic manifestation of our positioning, the flag of our purpose; and the signature of our vision. Inspired by ancient mint coins of reverential Indian kingdoms that served with will, wisdom and action; it reflects our heritage and civilizational depth that has enduring relevance and rich meaning. The symbol has been hand drawn and serves as a constant reminder of our founding goals. The Ashwatha leaf symbolises abundant wisdom (jñāna), the Sun symbolises energy with an indomitable will (ichhā), and the Dharma Chakra symbolises movement with the right, meaningful action (kriyā). The logo stirs and reminds us everyday to stay rooted in our principles, to ascend with ideas, to unflinchingly be of service to society and to develop transformative leaders. Inspired by nature and light, ours is a rare colour that has been chosen as a representation of our steadfast ‘ideas with ideals’ movement; and reflects character, sincerity and commitment. Perfectly complementing the hand-hewn logo is the timeless custom serif typeface that is handcrafted; its form and colour exuding gravitas and heritage.
In its entirety, the logo as part of our identity, will always remind us of our true Indian spirit, our commitment to higher values and our dedication to serve society. As catalysts for developing transformative leaders, who will rise higher with ‘ideas and ideals’, the mark will inspire us to strive to be the foremost university by uniting global academic excellence with generational Indian wisdom, for individuals’ and humanity’s greatness.
