Late Shri OP Bhalla was a visionary educationist, philanthropist, reformer and was pioneer to set up Manav Rachna International University and Institutions of international repute. He worked to provide housing needs of poor and middle-class, served as Director of National Cooperative Housing Federation of India. To help the humanity through numerous ways has been his uppermost point of life and it's worth appreciation how he molded his children into outstanding educationists and philanthropists.
In Recognition of his Significant Contribution in the field of Education SaiDham has awarded SaiDham Life Time Puruskar to him through his illustrious son Dr Prashant Bhalla, Chancellor, Manav Rachna University through the pious hands of Shri Sameer Pal Srow IAS, Hon’ble Deputy Commissioner Faridabad on Sunday 23rd April 2017 at a function organized at SaiDham, Faridabad.
Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Union Minister for Science, Technology and Earth Sciences present “SaiDham Gyan Puruskar 2015” to thirty eminent educationists of Faridabad on Saturday 17th October 2015 in a grand function organised by renowned NGO, Shirdi Sai Baba Temple Society, Faridabad.
In its effort to promote and propagate the importance of education, SaiDham has instituted “SaiDham Gyan Puraskar 2015”, for the first time in the history of Faridabad at such a massive scale to 30 eminent educationists, which includes Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Dean, Founder, Managing Director, Presidents, CEOs and Principals who have made a mark in the field of education through years of dedication and commitment, to be presented by none other but an luminary Dr Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Minister for Science, Technology and Earth Sciences, Government of India.
Both educationist and the potter play almost a similar role in the sense of creating something unique. Students are like clay in the hands of educationists who can shape them into independent and confident individuals or into reclusive rebels. Though there are other external causes that can influence a child choosing a particular path in life, an educationist’s role in moulding the child is undeniable.
Kindly grace the solemn occasion !
