Heard of -parents of the NRI who died of starvation... brides who have turned into victims of the hollowness and insensitivity of the traditional marriage system....less consequential, but heard of people who insist that you are the nicest person ever born on this planet and hope that you never meet the 2024 others they told the same thing to...friends who meet you once every week with the bio-data of a new person who fell in love with them... next door aunty who borrowed money from you citing some emergency and later deleted this transaction from her memory...?. Shed tears in joy...wished this day didn't dawn in your life...wondered if you are living or just alive...been in love...had failures that seem like the end of the world...?. 'At University...' is about people we know; phases and feelings we all go through, from the pen of someone who is one among you, a face in the crowd, who sees the same world as you do but looks at it differently, perhaps...

Kalyani Chitta is an academician by profession,presently associated with the Department of Economics, University of Pune as a visiting faculty for the M.A. programme in Economics and as a research associate, pursuing the PhD programme in the area of International Economics 'At University...' is her debut work as far as publication is concerned though writing has been her passion since childhood.Kalyani was diagnosed with a visual disorder at the age of nine that causes progressive loss of vision. However, this physical challenge is not reflected anywhere in the way she conducts her life, whether it's about her academics, her professional career or her attitude towards life. Her academic career is marked by brilliance and she has a number of mention-worthy achievements to her credit - the award of a National Merit Certificate by the Government of India for her outstanding performance at the HSC examination, qualification of the UGC National Eligibility Test (NET) in her very first attempt, research paper presentations at various national and international conferences - to name a few. On the professional front, she has been associated with various prestigious educational institutions in Pune as a teaching associate and is now steadily growing in stature as a researcher. She has also completed three years of training in Hindustani classical music. But Kalyani's greatest achievement is perhaps the attitude with which she has handled the nineteen years of her life with retinitis pigmentosa. Challenges never intimidate her; rather, they motivate her. Failures seldom dishearten her and the only regret she has is that she would have loved to drive a car, which she is presently unable to. "In order to be able to dream (and dream big, preferably) and strive towards realizing your dream, you need vision, not sight"- is a statement she has inscribed on the walls of her room and a thought she has put into practice through her exemplary grit and determination. I could write a book on Kalyani, but for the moment, all I wish to say is that Kalyani for me is 'Courage Personified'
