Aso­cial com­mit­ment of the Apee­jay Stya & Svran Group — Apee­jay Ed­u­ca­tion So­ci­ety (AES) her­alded the cel­e­bra­tion of its Golden Ju­bilee year with a grand cul­tural ex­trav­a­ganza. The chief guest at the cel­e­bra­tions was NRI in­dus­tri­al­ist Lord Swraj Paul, Baron Paul of Maryle­bone. The event was presided over by Sushma Paul Ber­lia, chair­man, Apee­jay Ed­u­ca­tion So­ci­ety and pres­i­dent, Apee­jay Stya & Svran Group.

AES has built a rich her­itage of over five decades in the field of qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion through a fam­ily of 24 not-for-profit ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, in­clud­ing the Apee­jay Stya Univer­sity.

All Apee­jay Stya ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions have been in­stru­men­tal in car­ry­ing for­ward the shared vi­sion of ‘man-mak­ing and na­tion-build­ing ed­u­ca­tion of global stan­dards’ of its founder chair­man, Dr Stya Paul.

Dr Stya Paul’s legacy of ex­cel­lence is be­ing car­ried for­ward by his only child, Sushma Paul Ber­lia. To­day, the Apee­jay fam­ily com­prises about 40,000 stu­dents, 60,000 alumni, over 3,000 fac­ulty mem­bers and state-of-the-art in­fra­struc­ture that pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion from pre-nurs­ery to doc­toral level.

Shar­ing the five-decade­long jour­ney of AES, Sushma Paul Ber­lia con­grat­u­lated and thanked all mem­bers of the Apee­jay Stya fam­ily as well as those who have been as­so­ci­ated with the group, in the past or present, di­rectly or in­di­rectly, con­tribut­ing in myr­iad ways to­wards the 50 years of the suc­cess story of AES.

“For us at AES, the over­ar­ch­ing mis­sion has al­ways been the pur­suit of ex­cel­lence. To­day, let us make a com­mit­ment that while we cher­ish the glory of the last 50 years, we will not rest on our lau­rels and will con­tinue to soar higher and higher,” she said.

Lord Swraj Paul also gave an emo­tional trib­ute to his el­der brother and founder chair­man of AES. “Dr Stya Paul was my men­tor, father, brother, ev­ery­thing,” he said.

He also ap­plauded the re­mark­able achieve­ments of the Apee­jay Ed­u­ca­tion So­ci­ety. He went on to ap­pre­ci­ate the cul­tural de­lights of the evening pre­sented by Apee­jayites, through dance, mu­sic, and a stun­ning dis­play of tal­ent, which he said were as good as those of pro­fes­sion­als.
