Gurugram University aspires to be a front runner in global education; role model for institutional excellence, trans-cultural quality learning, intellectual growth, contemporary research, capacity building and nurturing socially and morally responsible disciples through a learner- centric approach. The university seeks to ensure a journey from studentship to epitome of discipleship by working on academic, professional, technical, industry and life skills of its students.
Motivation behind our Vision: The name of our city “Gurugram” carries forward to the University which itself is after the name of Guru Dronacharya. Since ages, the story of Eklavya (a character from the Indian Epic-Mahabharata) has come to define exemplary discipleship. Eklavya was the son of a poor hunter who wanted to learn archery from Dronacharya –a renowned teacher to the members of royal family, not permitted to teach the state art to anybody else. It was forbidden to make anyone as powerful as the princes for the safety of the region. As Eklavya in his heart had already accepted Dronacharya as his Guru, he made a statue of his Guru and learned archery with sincerity and practice. He became so good at it that, he would hear the sound of the animal, shoot an arrow at it and claim the animal.
Dronacharya was baffled when he got to know about Eklavya and decided to meet him. Eklavya welcomed his Guru with great honor and love. Dronacharya asked for Guru Dakshina in the form of thumb of the right hand of Eklavya. Eklavya without a second thought gave the thumb of his right hand to his Guru.
In this story Dhronacharya is commonly viewed as being cruel and self-centred, but Dhronacharya blessed Eklavya with immortality by asking him for his thumb, thereby, “Raising his status from studentship to epitome of discipleship.” So when people think of devotion, they think of Eklavya, and not Arjuna. Dronacharya took the blame on him and uplifted his student which reflects that even if Guru is wrong, if your devotion is true you can never go wrong.
