• Why to Opt Geography

Who should opt geography?

Geography is a discipline which integrates both physical and human science. Its nature is quasi scientific, however not a rigid science with qualification &abstruse methodologies. It’s only deals with the applied sciences to interpret and analyses our surrounding.
