When Leki Thungon went to Delhi for her higher studies never did she imagine herself designing a course. However that is what precisely she did. The 26- year old has come up with a panel of innovative ideas and course guidance for the Undergraduate program in Sociology in Ambedkar University.
Not only that, her design for the foundational course and syllabus was approved by a board of experts from the university last week. The authenticated undergraduate program will soon be introduced into the curriculum. It is expected that the program will elevate a broad understanding of human groups, social relationships and societies at large.
Hailing from Shergaon village in Bomdila, Arunachal Pradesh, Thungon did her Masters and M.Phil in Sociology from Delhi School of Economics under Delhi University. Currently she teaches at Lady Shri Ram College, New Delhi, her Alma mater.
Not being the one to rest on her laurels, the 26-year old college lecturer-cum-syllabus designer is mulling to pursue a doctorate degree anytime soon. Her cousin Pema Edron posted this congratulatory message.
