President APJ Abdul Kalam will unveil the 150th anniversary of Mumbai University, the oldest in the country.

The University’s convocation hall just restored for the event is a stunning symbol of its history.

It is named after Cowasjee Jehangir, the Parsi industrialist and phlianrophist who endowed the University and many other centres of learning in the city.

It is the kind of philanthropy and endowment in learning and the arts that made Mumbai an academic powerhouse in the mid 19th century.
