Shovana Narayan, Kathak exponent:
She went to Miranda in the 1960s and has very fond college memories. Also, she asserts that due to a limited number of girls’ colleges, she didn’t have much of a choice. But, Miranda at that time had the best faculty and reputation as well. So, the cafeteria, the bunking, and spending time with the hostellers are all her cherished memories.
