Late. Shri. Suresh Angadi, Former MoS, Railways, Govt. of India, Former four term Member of Parliament, Belagavi and Founder Chairman, Suresh Angadi Education Foundation (SAEF) was a devout follower of Swami Vivekananda and his principles. His philosophy has been that education should not merely be gathering knowledge, rather it should be about developing the mind to broaden the horizon of thinking.
In 2008 he built “Suresh Angadi Education Foundation” on the pillars of Discipline, Dedication and Determination with an intention to provide education to the person at the last mile so that even the needy have access to quality education. His aim, was to provide quality education at affordable cost especially for rural students. He believed that the purpose of education is not just restricted to imparting academic knowledge but to inculcate among the students humanitarian values like wisdom, compassion, courage, humility and integrity. In this regard, he always appealed to the students of SAEF to become fearless seekers of true knowledge in their quest of success. He always encouraged and motivated teachers so that they keep the flame of inquisitiveness alive among the students. His dream was to make Belagavi a top educational hub in this country by providing excellent educational facilities to students who come from various backgrounds. Lastly, he believed and lived upto the saying “WORK IS WORSHIP”. A proverb that repeatedly reminds us that it is essential to take an intent in what we do. Unless we follow our passion and do what we generally love to do, we will never be able to achieve success.
