"Art is long, and Time is fleeting", means that the work given to us is vast and time consuming, but time, like a river, never stops and waits. Though our hearts are brave and stout, at other times we fear death and our heart beats when we realize that death is a certainty. This situation of our heart, is being compared to the beating of drums at the funeral march. The underlying message conveys to us, that we should utilize our limited time span to the fullest, instead of wasting it in the thought of inevitable death.
"Do something great for the society, feel proud to depart, keeping behind teary memories in the hearts of people."
Shri Pankoj Kumar Sarkar, a Chartered Accountant by qualification and with a professional experience spanning 27 years, laid down the foundation of his dreams to build a premier institution of excellence, dedicated to his beloved mother "Late Saraswati Devi Sarkar", as a tribute.
It is his commitment, prudence and visionary approach towards school education, that has redefined the meaning of education. Armed with an ambition to change the educational landscape of India, our chairman through his rigorous research of over a decade, is creating an institution with world class infrastructure catering to the needs of the 22nd century.
He is a man who believes in walking on a road less travelled. He believes, that any dream can be turned into reality. For him, education provides for the complete development of a child. Education is meant to make a child learn about the intricacies of life. Mere upliftment in academics is not sufficient for the complete development of a child. A child should be suitably equipped to negotiate all the hurdles of life.
"In the world's broad field of battle, In the bivouac of Life, Be not like dumb, driven cattle! Be a hero in the strife!"
He is a strict follower of the maxim, "Hard work has no substitute" and it is his deep desire to implant this simple formula into the hearts of little children, so that they can be successful in their lives even after passing out of school.

"Lives of great men all remind us, We can make our life sublime And, departing, leaves behind us, Footprints on the sands of time"
The lives of so many great and successful men remind us that even we can achieve those heights through a strong desire coupled with our willpower and if we do that, we would be living forever in our works, in the hearts of people. Immortality here is being compared to footprints, on the sands of time. In other words, we will not be living forever here, but we can leave our mark on the infinite flow oftime through our good work, to inspire later generations to follow in our footsteps.
