Often the progress of higher education in India is analysed through a very formal way by taking into account various recommendations of committees, diverse reports/surveys related to the subject matter, government regulations and rules, the issues of regulatory bodies etc. It perhaps presents a top down approach in academic circles where the source of information is obtained from somewhere to compile articles related to the higher education. This vicarious method is generally employed for writing intellectual articles which enlighten the minds of the readers. However a unique bottom up approach in arranging matter related to higher education could be the use of personal experiences and a more first-hand approach. The sources could be limited or even absence but this type of effort shall enlighten the sphere of higher education in a more connected or emotional manner. Such kind of personal analysis can allow the readers to be more nostalgic about their days in the institutions of higher education. At the same time a distinct narrative like this can put forth a new scrutiny in the field of higher education in India that can provide a different perspective to the policy makers. My purpose is to make my experiences at the two contrasting higher educational institutes somewhat more refined and formalised that can throw some light on some very interesting facets of higher education. The article shall attempt a personal touch to the diverse challenges faced by the U.G. and P.G imparting institutes. The crux shall be to unearth the stark quality divide existing among the institutions of India that makes equitable and qualitative higher education meant for students more complex.
