While serving as Governor in Uttarakhand Rtn. Sudarshan Agarwal set up a Boarding School for bright girls from impoverished families of Uttarakhand which is totally free for these girls for their education, food, uniforms, toiletries, hostel stay and all other needs. It costs Rs.75,000/- per year to support each girl in the Boarding School. The School, The Hostel building and eight flats for teachers, covering 80,000 sq. ft. are built on a ten acre plot of land. It is amongst the finest school buildings in the schooling capital of the country. This bold experiment – a free boarding school – is supported by compassionate, caring and socially sensitive individuals and Corporates by contributions to the corpus and also by adopting girls till they finish their schooling under the 10+2 CBSE curriculum.
Currently there are 280 girls in classes V to XII in a school designed for 280 girls (35 in each of the 8 classes). Him Jyoti School is not just a school but a training ground for life.Read More...
We are extremely aggrieved at the sad passing away of our mentor Sh. Sudarshan Agarwal ji. He was not only the Mentor but the builder of the outstanding Institution of Him Jyoti and we are all proud of it. His passing away is not only shocking for us but to all those who came in his touch, all teachers, staff and girls of Him Jyoti School.
The institution that he established not only it should continue but it should flourish to keep his memory alive and going. Now this great task has fallen on all of us and we all have to work hard not only for running this Institution but take it to the greatest heights.
In this endeavor I seek your help and support. We will be holding a meeting soon depending on everyone’s convenience and decide on future course of action and plans at the earliest.
All of our hearts go to Mrs. Agarwal to his son Rajiv, daughter Ritu and all relations of Sh. Agarwal ji. He was a real “Karam Yogi” and will be remembered forever. Shri K N Memani President Himalayan School Society
