I am very humbled and honored to introduce myself as the Vice Principal of SAJS Kanpur. I can assure you that I will share my dedicated experience and caring for my students and the school community at SAJS on an ongoing basis while providing them with a meaningful learning environment. Although I am an educator, I am also a father of a daughter who has started her career in the west. I started my journey as an educator three decades ago with my last school being The Doon School where I served for a little less than 2 decades.
I mentored, coached and tutored students in Economics and Business Management. I firmly believe that every child can excel. The cooperation between home and school builds trust and self-esteem in the students. This will help our students attain their highest potential to shape their future, community and our nation. “A Child is like a bud” As the bud requires a lot of care and nourishment to blossom into a beautiful & healthy flower, so the child not only needs a good education but a fulfilment of many elements that will help the child’s holistic development.
Let all stakeholders make collective and collaborative efforts to connect with our children in the journey of formal and informal education to create a healthy and successful future for themselves.
Success does not mean absence of problems; it means the ability to identify the cause, reasons and how to tide over their problems.
Hence it is our responsibility to give the children the most, for a better and healthier tomorrow that can only be achieved by connecting with our children.
