Nashik: Fifty seven year old Sane Guruji Shikshan Prasarak Mandal, the educational institute has been recently honoured with the Asia Pacific Excellence Award by India Forum for Peace and Development at Nepal which has made the institute a role model.
The international conference – Indo-Nepal Friendship, the NGO made survey of thirty states of India and selected industrialist, builders as well as the institutions – one each from the field of education and agriculture from sixteen states for the award. It’s a matter of pride that India Forum for Peace and Development selected Sane Guruji Shikshan Prasarak Mandal from the Maharashtra State.
In the internal conference on Indo-Nepal Friendship, Economic co-operation seminar held at Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, the trustees of the management were personally felicitated by Rambaran Yadav, ex-president of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Bhim Naresh Singh, existing president, Manjit Singh Puri, Minister for External Affairs. In the presence of the Cultural Minister, the award was presented to Ganpatrao Muthal, chairman and Pravin Joshi, secretary, Sane Guruji Shikshan Prasar Mandal. The grand prize distribution ceremony was held in a magnificent and marvellous programme held under tight security.
The management had submitted the proposal in the year 2009 to the ministry of human resource development, Delhi. When the reconcilability of this department fell on Kapil Sibbal, the former Minister while submitting the proposal to him he asserted that no recommendation or trace would be considered. The management should not be of any political leader, industrialist or entrepreneur after making a survey, all these will be made sure and decision taken thereafter for the award.
The management received the letter and Ganpatrao Muthal and Pravin Joshi attended the function held in Kathmandu. While receiving the award they remembered the history of the management.
B V Joshi and S K Pandey made the management to rise to eminence prior of sixty years of K J Mehta high school run by the management were open to the student who were held the examination and refused to take admissions in their prominent schools. Since 1961 the achievement of canvassing for and proportion the qualitative education not only in civil, urban but in hilly tribal rural areas deserves the management for awards.
Pravin Joshi was touched and expressed regrets that it would have been better to have received the reward when the founder members were alive.
