Mr. Kishu Mansukhani
70 Years of Educational Journey & Service to The Nation reads Well and sounds Good in any milieu.
However, in the life of an Educational Institute it is good to reflect upon it as the First Leg of a
Marathon Race as aiming for Excellence, our avowed objective, is a Marathoner Effort!
For me, and our family, the past is indelibly connected with the history of HSNC Board. Besides
serving the Board since 1974, and as Trustee for the past 15 years, my familial link witnessed the zeal
with which Vidyasagar Khushiram Kundnani searched for and purchased the 2 acre plot of land
where our Bandra campus stands today. My uncle, Karamyogi Gangaram Mansukhani, a lifelong
supporter of the HSNC Board, toiled and generously acquired the 15 acre land, and invested in the
first building, of our CHM campus at Ulhasnagar. My extended family of uncles and aunts have
continued to readily contribute to several facilities in HSNCB institutions: colleges, libraries, hostel,
laboratories, auditoriums, named after them, in recognition. Our family's desire to serve the interests
of HSNCB remains paramount.
Someone rightly said that 'Perfection is Impossible, but if we aim for Perfection, we will achieve
Excellence'. Our task ahead, therefore, is to bring about this resolve in all our working ways: the
Education we Impart to our Students; the Services we engage in for the Nation; the Mentorship we are
charged with Faculties and Staff that are a treasured part of our extended family; the Societal, State
and National Obligations we are privileged to fulfil. The Challenge of transitioning of three of our
colleges, into the HSNC Cluster University, Mumbai will be a Prime Focus area for the HSNC Board
and we are excited to lead this effort.
It is the hope and resolve of our Board that we pursue these aims: some, personified in “Centre of
Excellence influencing the future – promoting values, social responsibility, respect for environment
and ethics – in our Mission, as we advance towards our next milestone in 2025.
