Dr. VIRENDRA SWARUP
(25th July 1923 – 26th February 1980)
By any yardstick the contribution of Dr. Virendra Swarup in the field of education measures equal to the best not only in India but any where in the world. His deepest interest in education was not an academic exercise for personal gain but was a means, a medium to uplift the illiterate, toiling masses of the state of U.P. from the depths of want and despair-to prosperity and confidence. The justification of his zeal is evident in the large number of educational institutes all over the state of U.P. which bear his name.
Dr. Virendra Swarup Education Foundation, established in the cherished memory of this great personality, is carrying forward the torch of literacy that he lit through the ever increasing chain of Dr. Virendra Swarup Education Centres.
We, in our humble way are attempting to follow in his footsteps and pledge to uphold his high ideals and standards.
