about
  • Principal, Mani Ram Aggarwal :

    He had graduated in Mathematics (Honours) from F.C. College, Lahore in 1931. He first conceived the idea of commencing coaching for university and competitive examinations while still in college. He was a brilliant student having acquired third position in the university, but was facing financial constraints. He borrowed a pittance fromÉone of his friends in Village Alawalpur, Jalandhar (Punjab) and commenced his journey to Lahore in 1931. He had a distant vision with optimism unbounded to forge a new career for himself. For him work was worship. Success of the college in the initial stages depended on Mr. Aggarwal's hard work and his brilliant mathematics tuitions. Thousands of students flocked to attend his classes in maths.

    A number of distinguished old students including Marshal of Air Force Arjan Singh have often reminisced about their stay in the college and their tuitions in maths by Mr. Aggarwal.The college shifted to Delhi in the aftermath of the partition. Once again maths emerged as the strong point of the college. Eminent ex-students like Mahesh Kapoor, former Advisor, Planning Commission and Mahesh Khanna, former Chairman Balmer Lawrie, studied A and B course in maths from Mr. Aggarwal. They would always recall that Mr. Aggarwal was indeed a brilliant teacher of Mathematics and many of them owed success in the various competitive examinations to the innovative teaching methods adopted by him.
