My father, Late Shri Punjaji Patil Sapkal, was one of the most active and dedicated freedom fighters of the ‘Marathwada Mukti Sangram’. I grew up watching him struggle for the emancipation of oppressed farmers under the Razakar’s regime. His wisdom, dedication and highly inspirational personality became source of inspiration for many and how. He always professed the need and benefits of education, higher education to be precise, for the development of our society. It was his vision which I think was passed on to me and the members of Dhareshwar Shikshan Sanstha and we passed unanimous resolution to ignite the guiding torch in the form of a higher education institute. Late Shri Punjaji Patil Sapkal gave us inspiration as a seed, we nurtured sapling of the same and what we see now in the form this institute is a growing tree. We have been facing innumerous problems in this unending journey of availing easily accessible yet sustainable education. Insufficient funds, remote location of college, reluctance of teachers to join us are few of the major problems that we face every day. Yet, Dhareshwar Shikshan Sanstha is firm and determined to reach to its goal.
I humbly request all the parents to make sure that their wards do get quality education, be it with us or not, and contribute in nation building. This is the era where the world is becoming a global village. What is global today becomes local tomorrow and hence we need our youth to become globally competent. India had visionaries like Bharat Ratna Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam who dreamt for India to become world Super Power by the end of second decade of this century. This dream was considered as an unattainable objective but we should not forget that Hon. Dr. Kalam had said it can easily be achieved if our youth takes up this responsibility. I would suggest our future generations to Be the Change You want See in the Society. Resonating the same expectation and hoping for the best I wish all the luck and success to the Indian Youth and express my full confidence in them.
