Welcome Home

The thing about UWC Mahindra College is that as you’re walking around campus or sitting in your room with the window open just enough to allow the cool air in or just standing at your favourite spot, you can hear the sound of waves crashing. It’s funny though, because the nearest ocean is more than a hundred miles away. And it’s amazing when you realise, standing there with your eyes closed and ears open, that it’s actually the sound of the wind blowing through the rustling leaves. That’s when you know that you’re living in one of the most beautiful places where laughter and conversation saturate the air with happiness and the feeling of home.
