About College
Miranda House, residential college for women, is one of the premier Women's Institutions of Delhi University. It was founded in 1948 by the then Vice-Chancellor Sir Maurice Gwyer; its foundation stone was laid by Lady Edwina Mountbatten on March 7 in the same year. Located in the University campus, Miranda House is built in warm red brick with cool and spacious corridors. Its original design was by the renowned architect Walter George, the college shares an architectural affinity with other colonial educational institutions of the country. In the past five decades, as the college has grown, several other buildings have been added to its original design. It is now declared a heritage building and work is on to maintain its pristine glory.
Miranda offers liberal education in humanities and science to more than 2500 students. The faculty is renowned for their meritorious profile, versatile talent and dedication to the cause of education. The college has produced women who have excelled in various professions and have contributed in numerous ways to society at large.
The college has always maintained high academic standards. What is more important is the space it has provided to the students to freely express and develop views that help them respond to changes in society. Its proximity to other campus colleges enables students to participate in the academic and cultural events that take place around it.
The college hostel is amongst the oldest residential buildings of the University. The hostel has recently been renovated under the Heritage Building Project. The hostel section is laid out in a pleasing quadrangle, with gardens paced out by bottle palms. The design allows a spacious privacy within which residents can be as they like. The dining hall is one of the assets of the college with monastic tables and benches set inside a long hall. The stretch of ground curving around the hostel towards the cafeteria has been cleared away for a beautiful lawn and a rockery extending the special attractions of the Cafeteria, particularly on sunny winter days. It has also brought out the potential of the spacious verandah outside one of the classrooms as an elevated stage for cultural events.

Media coverage of Miranda House University College for Women Delhi University, Delhi Delhi, Delhi

Desire to inspire

Her books, sagas of joint families and relationships, grip you with the uncertainties of love, loss and matrimony. She has been referred to as the archivist of modern times and chronicler of the Indian middle class.

Author Manju Kapur became a writer by accident, though she cant claim that anymore. Born in post-Independence India in 1948 in Amritsar, Manju studied at Miranda House college, Delhi University and got an MA from Dalhousie University, Halifax before she took to teaching English literature at her alma mater. All the while when she was nurturing young minds, she nursed this nascent ambition to write a book but began to write only when she hit her 40s. She says, I was a mother, teacher, wife and a bad homemaker. Death was staring at me and I was dissatisfied. I had people writing around me and I thought if they could write, so could I. I felt I have not said everything I wanted to. So, I started writing when I was 41. At that time I had no idea how difficult it was going to be. I was unsure if my writing will ever see the light of the day. I struggled for eight years, till my first novel was published. But writing is still as difficult as ever.

Years ago she caught the pulse of the middle class and stunned readers with her sharply-etched characters and emotional settings. Her themes centre around the idea of the home, women-centric issues and are quite autobiographical in tone. I felt homesick when I was a student in Canada. I felt alienated and nostalgic, so I wanted to write about the whole experience. Moreover, I write about things I know well, though I set them in an imaginative mould. But I did make an exception when I drew some of the details from my mothers life for my first novel, she adds.

So did any writer influence her writing in particular? I draw from the lives around me and not from what I have read by others. But it is quite possible that unknowingly I must have been influenced by others writing, she replies.

Talking of the sub-texts in her novels, she has explored the eternal dilemma of who owns a womans body in almost all her novels. Do husbands own their wives bodies? It is not often the girl but her family that controls her life. I have been forever interested in the lives of women, whether in the professional arena or in domestic spaces. One of the preoccupations in all my books is how women manage both and what sacrifices they have to make in order to keep the home fires burning and sanity in personal lives, explains Manju.

When it comes to taking names and issues pertaining to sex, Manju is demure. She reveals, It is difficult to write about sex. I am a shy person. After all these years, I have discovered that you dont need to actually describe what you are trying to say. The idea should be conveyed between the lines. When I write about such topics, I have my relatives in mind. What will they think of me? Am I sex mad? Secondly, I use fictitious names because I dont want people who are part of my work to feel uncomfortable. People are sensitive and you cant just say anything about them.

Manju cautions, If you are ready to believe you are lousy, second rate and awful, you can become a writer.
