Leading the Path - TBA Management

Dr. Vindhya Pai, MD

”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.

TBA Preschool Principal

Anjana Kamath

Children, born pure, are natural promoters of love and peace, and the role of the parent here is unmistakable. Let me throw some light on this. The background and early exposure of a child affects all stages of their developmental process. The first six years is the stage of the Absorbent Mind – the sponge-like capacity to absorb from the environment what is necessary to create an individual from his or her specific culture.
