Using forests as a resource for educating the youth provides a direct personal experience which engages and connects the head, heart and mind.

Understanding the importance of education in the development of the individual, the family, the country and the world, the key goal of Somaiya Vidyavihar Education Trust has been building institutions that enable the means to realize it.

My grandfather said, why not Somaiya. I said, no Chemical Engineering here, and Cornell is far better than Somaiya. He did not mind that. But said, ‘Go, but promise me, that when you return, in your lifetime, you will try to make our institutions to good, that if a candidate applies to Cornell, he/she will also apply to Somaiya’. And he allowed me to fly.
He traded dreams. Made my dreams his, and his mine. How powerful!!
