Dr. Vindhya Pai, MD
Managing Trustee , The Bharath Academy
”The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled”. These were the words, my grandfather Dr. TMA Pai (founder of Manipal) believed in and was the inspiration for me to get involved in the field of education.
When my family was setting up The Bharath Academy (TBA), I was of the firm conviction that we should create an environment for children to thrive. TBA is all about learning 21st-century skills. It’s about learning a concept rather than just rote memorization. We are focused on developing core skills like critical thinking, problem solving, communication and leadership qualities. I also believe that every child is unique and, with the right stimulation, they can evolve as healthy individuals ready to take on the universe in their stride.
All in all, education is a process more than an outcome. It is to this journey that we stay committed.
Dr. Vindhya is a mother to 4 young children , a Dermatologist and an Educationist.
