the progressive discovery of our ignorance, it is a concept
that has been off-late echoed loudly (by electronic and
print media). This has been however not only conceived but
achieved at the Karnataka Lingayat Education Society,
Belagavi over a century ago, when seven teachers fondly
remembered as the 'Saptharishis' laid the foundation stone
of the first Anglo-Indian school in the year 1916.
The century long journey has seen an enormous growth of the
KLE society from a sole sapling into a mammoth canopy of 265
Institutions spanning across education and health care
services in a vivid array of geographies in India. The
growth witnessed has however occurred on an uncompromised
and a very carefully preserved and nurtured philosophical
triad of philanthropy, service and sacrifice.
This endeavor of the KLE society received further fillip
when Dr. Prabhakar Kore took over the reins of chairmanship
in the year 1985.
His commandable leadership of 30 years is an example that
each of the society's 13,000+ members, 1,25,000+ students and 16,000+
faculty members would like to emulate in their lives. Under his
able guidance we seek to go beyond our existing accomplishment's
and with the sole motto of achieving newer zeniths and
establishing newer benchmarks in Indian education system.
This epitome of success of the KLE society as an educational and health-care service provider seems never to cease as it embarks upon newer horizons in relentless pursuit of achieving the noble cause of its origin as laid down by the 'Saptharishis'.
