JGU played a big role in Akanksha’s discovery of her passion. Here is what she had to say about it:
“A big chunk of poems that are a part of this book were written during my time at JGU. This book was inspired not only by the beautiful people I met at JGU but also by the star-studded nights that fill campus skies, the breath-taking sunsets that Sonipat skies offer, the blood-red moons that often appear for those looking up above, and the refreshing rainfall and winds that dance across campus fields. I am grateful I found a part of myself in JGU and I know now that JGU will always be a big part of me. I thank this space and all the people who are a part of it for inspiring me to write and publish my very first book. I strongly believe that I am all the moments I have experienced with all the people I have met in my life. And, I am most thankful to JGU for giving me absolute life-changing experiences, opportunities, and people who inspire me to reach for the stars every single day.”
