These are some of the thoughts simmering always in the mind of THE PERSON whom this page is going to portray. It is indeed portrayal of a Saga in the field of education and the person is none other than
Dr. Lavu Rathaiah, President and Correspondent, the person who explores pleasure and satisfaction only in work. Yes, his work has set pioneering standards in the filed of education in general and residential education in particular.
Born in a middle class agricultural family, Dr.Rathaiah had observed during his education, How most of his friends had become dropouts in school and colleges due to lack of guidance and direction. This pain has sowed a seed in his mind and it has become a visionary obsession for him that he should be instrumental in educating another 10 people.
After completing His Post graduation, he has rightly chosen his doctoral thesis on Child Psychology, Teaching methods, Thought Provoking Process in children, Channeling of creative resources. His childhood goal of educating ten people around him has made Lakhs of students getting quality education in his institutions.
With the goal in his mind , He has started Vignan Tutorials in 1982 and with the starting of Vignan High school in 1983, an era in the filed of education in Andhra Pradesh started. From then onwards, Junior colleges, Degree colleges, PG colleges, Engineering colleges, Pharmacy Colleges and to day Vignan became the Hub of educational activity in AP and has set Benchmarking standards which other institutions can always think in their dreams.
He never compromises in providing best facilities for his students and believes slightest negligence in providing student amenities will create false notions in the young minds about the institution and it's faculty and carelessness, lack of interest will creep in to their minds and even the best teaching methods under these circumstances won't help them.
He always has strong conviction that an institution should make every student perform well in their studies and live up to the expectation the parents reposed on the group. Such institution should provide a conducive atmosphere where there is no pollution in any form for the students to study better and better. Accordingly all the Vignan institutions have been set up far from the madding crowds in a serene and calm environs.
His belief in strong body makes strong mind made all the institutions are having good canteen and play ground facilities. One can ask parents to really elicit feedback about the quality of the food that is being served across all the institutions. His contribution to education not only stopped at setting world class institutions, But this monumental pioneering effort has been extended to Vignan Publications where Books are written by experts in their respective fields and these books are helping not only Vignan students, but students outside too.
For a person who hails from a small village, climbing all the peaks in his chosen path has brought many laurels yet the MASTER as fondly called by his students is humble enough to admit that he has to reach many more peaks in his relentless crusade.
