the mafia of human trafficking and other
anti-social activities. She expressed her shock
over how the society has changed over the years

behavioural patterns of the society. The

St. Anthony’s College in search
of honey in the Rock:
we see in the pictures Darshan & St.
Anthony’s College has ventured into
seeking honey in the rock. The
master rock breaker says “honey is
found only at the heart of the
rock.” So the search goes on and
on….breaking and going deeper into
the heart of the rock continues. If
not the honey at least may we clear
the rock from the campus and may we
have the space and place for the
future ventures of the Institution.
Why not a good Science, Commerce and
Management Block as the existing
building is saturated with the
increase in the number of students
and with the latest permissions for
Extra sections in the PUC with
Computer Science and Statistics
combinations. Of course a better
cradle for the new born babe that’s
“BCA” Bachelor of Computer
Applications at Darshan College. May
all dreams come true and God bless
