SNDT University Song
We proclaim, The world is our family, India our home We are not helpless, nor are we powerless. Enriched by our culture, we are all empowered. We have been illuminated by the flame of knowledge. The dream of Thackersey has been realized here, Maharshi Karves dedication has borne fruit here. This our luminious centre is, and we its radiating rays.
