Her opinion about the Department: "The Department of History has the best faculty members who constantly strive for innovations, keeping themselves updated not only in their own subject but also with the changes in the field of education in general. The distinguishing feature of the Department is that of going beyond the realm of pure history and introducing subjects like Cultural studies, India studies and so on. This is reflected in the innovative topics introduced for the Seminars every year thus creating an environment of holistic learning for the students".
