"Whenever I talk about XIDAS it means a second home and faculty members act as guardians/parents. In my two years of stay I have learned many things from the institute e.g. to have faith, patience, confidence and honesty. The strong ethical system and discipline which is instilled as part of academic grooming brings success in professional life."
