means "knowledge leads to liberation & eternal bliss"
When the fire of education is lit, ignited young minds change not only their personal destinies, but also their collective destinies, and the collective destiny of a nation. Therefore, education is a vital part of nation-building. The International Commission of Education for the 21st century set up by UNESCO has defined education’s four-pronged agenda:
- LEARNING TO KNOW
- LEARNING TO DO
- LEARNING TO LIVE
- LEARNING TO LIVE TOGETHER
For a nation to win, every child must be a winner, and this is the simple philosophy behind M.C. Kejriwal Vidyapeeth, an institution that believes that the child is reachable, teachable and worthy of the effort. In other words, this is an institution where every child comes first.
The Vision and the Visionary : An Inspiring Story
M.C. Kejriwal Vidyapeth was founded by Sri S.S. Kejriwal (11.02.1931 - 30.12.2019), a prominent enterpreneur and philanthropist, who felt that the development of India as a modern, progressive, prosperous, and self-reliant country depended entirely on the creation of a well -informed and educated citizenry. Therefore, it was with this vision, and a desire to give back to society, that Sri S.S. Kejriwal laid the foundation stone of M.C. Kejriwal Vidyapeeth on 15 June 1997, and created, with a missionary zeal, an institution that would, one day, be ranked fifth among the boys' schools in the Kolkata region (Education World Survey, 2021-22)
With this commitment to the education of the youth of the country unabated, Sri S.S. Kejriwal also established the MCKV Institute of Engineering in Howrah, Madhusthali Vidyapeeth ( a co-educational residential -cum -day school), Madhusthali Institute of Teacher Training, and Madhusthali Institute of Paramedical Sciences in Madhupur, Jharkand.He also served on the board of trustees of several well-known schools of Kolkata and Howrah.
Concerned about the negative impact of modern life-style on people's health, Sri S.S. Kejriwal decided to venture into the domain of healthcare by establishing MCKV Health and Medicare in Liluah, Howrah in addition to supporting a hospital in Ramgarh, Rajasthan, set up by his father, the late Chagganlal Kejriwal.
Sri S.S. Kejriwal's vision is being ably developed and taken forward by his youngest son, Sri Kishan Kumar Kejriwal, the Chairman of the MCKV Group of Institutions, who plays an enabling and supportive role in the management of the school. Under his leadership, we have not only improved our performance levels but also received many accolades.
