Chairman Message's

Any endeavour begins with a thought in a person’s mind. If the thought has a potential, it brings in a surge of energy to plan; if the plan has the power to convince the like minded, a team gets formed, which develops a will to execute the plan; and if it starts functioning, more people will join to strengthen the endeavour. This is the virtuous circle of an organization. It does in no way mean that the endeavour is without challenges or obstacles. But the sacredness of the endeavour, and the sincerity and grit of the team takes the challenges and obstacles as opportunities to strengthen the bond amongst its members and to nurture the initial resolve to scale the peaks of achievement.
Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya at Hurda is one such endeavour, which originated in my mind when I visited the residential educational complex run by the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, at Narendrapur near Kolkata. A beginning of that dream was made in July 1977, at Hurda, a village near our Gulabpura unit. Though it was initially meant for the children of our Mills’ employees, it has come a long way in catering to the needs of not only the surrounding region, but of the students from many parts of Rajasthan. The dream of offering good education with excellent results in the examinations of the CBSE at the Senior Secondary and Secondary levels, and admissions of the students passing out, in the prime professional institutions or entry into Services through N D A and I M A is being achieved.
Air Weapons Shooting was introduced in 2003, and there is a steady improvement in the performance of our students in it. I am glad that students like Mohammad Yunus represented Junior category for Rajasthan and qualified for the Nationals and Siddharth Singh Rathore represented Rajasthan in the Sub-Junior in the All India Level Shooting competitions. They were two among the seven selected to represent Rajasthan. The Vidyalaya has been hosting other programmes like Model Rocketry for the students from eighteen schools of Rajasthan under the aegis of Department of Science and Technology, Delhi.
As Swami Vivekananda said, we cannot rest till our task is done. The task is, to spread the philosophy of excellence, in any and every field chosen by each of our children. My strong conviction is that every child has the spark of excellence within and has a mission unique to him which contributes to the larger goal of the nation. I congratulate the entire Vidyalaya team and my hearty best-wishes to them for setting and achieving new goals in the years to come.
