It’s time to bid adieu to Dr. Meenakshi Gopinath as her term as the Principal of LSR ends after almost 26 years as the Principal of the college and many before that as a student. As she retires this month, it’s time for an era to end.

Dr. Gopinath symbolizes the glue which has held Lady Shri Ram College for Women to its current stature.  Popularly known as MG, she is a person who exhibits aura and elegance. A lady with a mind like a pensive, she has been the pioneer of success.

She’s conceived LSR as we know of it today and has continuously worked in various fields of development, be it academically or in areas like gender and peace building.

The college is all set up to give its support system and backbone a farewell. A ceremony has been scheduled for August 28th, 2014 in the college auditorium. A compact and well-organized farewell is expected with performances by various societies and teachers. There is news that the Head of Departments (HODs) will have a small gathering with her.

Even though her shoes are tough to fill in, the search for a new guiding light is on. A popular choice would be someone from the college faculty only because of the intrinsic working ideas and values of college. However, a fair and unbiased system has been adopted with LSR inviting applicants for the required post.

LSR beats with the work and advice of MG. Now, as MG retires it’ll be tough to carry on the legacy. However, as it’s said the show must go on and hopefully, her empowered vision will continue to be with LSR always, because she carries with her the magic of LSR.

We wish Dr. Meenakshi Gopinath, the outgoing principal of Lady Shri Ram College for Women, all the very best for her future!
