It is my great honor and privilege to welcome you to my institution, Kr. V. N. Naik college of Arts, Commerce and Science. The institution was founded by the grounding principles of the revolutionary freedom fighter Kr. Vasantrao Narayanrao Naik and it is his vision and values that still lead us today. 'Duritanche timir jao' (let the darkness of ignorance disappear) is our motto, and I invite you to join us on this journey of knowledge and enrichment, for a bright future for us all.
