This capacity is called reasoning. Logic deals with reasoning. It mainly deals with the Methods and Principles used to distinguish correct from incorrect reasoning. (Rules of Reasoning) The study of Logic will sharpen students' intelligence.

Mrs. Supriya Bhiwandkar



I have been teaching the subjects of Philosophy and Logic for the past thirteen years. I have recently been selected to the Board of Studies in Philosophy (Balbharti, Pune) and will be involved with curriculum and textbook development for the same.

I am particularly interested in Indian Philosophy and especially Advaita Vedanta of Shankaracharya. My personal philosophy of life is “to live and let live."  I strongly believe in Karma Yoga. My hobbies include reading books, experimental cooking and watching Marathi plays.
