The Maharajas of Mysore in Education- The Legacy Lives On

 I trust that under the enlivening influence of English education which has done so much for the progress of the Nation, Mysore will not be found behind the rest of India.

– Sri Krishnaraja Wadiyar III

The contribution of the Maharajas of Mysore to the improvement of education has a long legacy. The famous Mysore University was set up by Sri Krishnaraja Wadiyar IV and has been a pioneer in higher education and the betterment of the education sector. The welfare of his subjects was prime on the Maharaja’s focus and in his far-sighted wisdom, he saw the role education had to play in it.

The contributions of the Maharajas started much earlier however. The Raja’s Free School was established by Sri Krishnaraja Wadiyar’s grandfather, Sri Krishnaraja Wadiyar III in 1883. This set the foundation to what the rulers of Mysore would keep as one of their foremost goals. The Free School offered high-quality education to the boys of Mysore without charge.

Since then, the Maharajas have championed the cause of education. This spirit is held high by the now ruler of Mysore – Maharaja Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar. When he heard about our event and our intention of contributing to bettering the education processes for government schools, he graciously accepted to honour the occasion with his presence. He is an inspiration to the future generations and we are deeply grateful.

We look forward to having the Maharaja with us at the event. The Invitation is below. It is on the 22nd of July at Government Higher Primary School, Hale Kesare, Mysore. We look forward to having you there!

Motivational Success Quotes

We all want to be successful. We all want to reach for the stars. We all want to soar and achieve our dreams. The drive to succeed, the positive energy to keep at it, and the determination to achieve our dreams is a fire inside us that keeps us up.

I have always been conscious of my passion to soar high. Both literally (my flying lessons are under way successfully!) and symbolically, I decided nothing would stop me. When I conceptualized Genius Lead, I knew I had to fight hard to achieve success and I embraced it completely. I love the journey.

Each one of us entrepreneurs have that spark inside of us – the drive that will eventually get us to where we want to be. Every spark does need fuel to keep it burning though and I have found that tapping into the words of great achievers, savouring their story and letting their success infect me keeps my positive energy burning alive. Hope it helps you too.
