The lineage

The legacy of the Shahani Group in the education sector goes back a long way, across generations and geographies, to a visionary named Thadomal Shahani.Thadomal Shahani was an educationist in the true sense of the term. Born in the mid-nineteenth century in a scholarly Sindhi family, he learnt the value of education early. This encouraged him to devote his life to the cause of education and become the Principal of the D.J. Sind College at Karachi.

He realized early that the best way to lift people out of poverty was to give them an education. While his devotion to the cause of the underprivileged was exemplary, what set him apart was his definition of the word ‘education’ – he wanted to go beyond the usual ‘qualifications’-oriented education system and instill in his students a certain curiosity and willingness to learn.

The legacy continued

With such a far-sighted parent, it was only natural that his sons also followed in his footsteps and took up the cause of learning. Thadomal Shahani’s eldest son, Jotsing Thadomal Shahani, started a publishing company to provide children school text books. Another son, Anandram Thadomal Shahani, became a renowned author of instructional books to help people learn various languages.

His youngest son, Kishinchand Thadomal Shahani, followed an even more difficult path. Left confounded by the Partition of 1947, he arrived in Mumbai (then Bombay) a penniless immigrant, empty-handed saving the ideals and values he had inherited from his father. These ideals helped him start a new life with focus and determination.

He started off humbly, selling fountain pens on local trains. Slowly, he built up his business, surpassing one milestone after another in his quest for success. He helped to establish more than twenty-four iconic colleges in Mumbai – among them the Thadomal Shahani Engineering College, HR College, KC College and National College.

The Shahani Group Today

Today, the branches of the Shahani tree of learning have spread wide. The members of the Shahani family continue to serve on the management of the colleges Kishinchand Thadomal Shahani helped to set up.

Thadomal Shahani’s descendants continue to hold the family flag up high in the education sector. Indu Shahani, Thadomal Shahani’s grand-daughter, is the Principal of one of Mumbai’s top colleges. She is also a committee member of the University Grants Commission, and a member on the Board of the International Baccalaureate Organisation in Geneva & a past Sheriff of Mumbai.

Maya Shahani is the Chairperson of Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management, the Business School of the future, which imparts global quality management education and focuses on creating heart centric business leaders. CFM has recently won the DNA award for the best business school for industry academia linkages.

She is the Trustee of Thadomal Shahani Trust and Governing Board Member of the HSNC Board, Vice Chairperson of Global Dialogue Foundation and Founder Trustee of Women’s Movement for Peace and Prosperity under the aegis of Times Foundation.

He also runs the non-profit SAGE Foundation which provides education and skills training for a hundred villages in Maharashtra. He has received the ‘Bharat Shiromani Award’ for his work in the education field.
