Lt Col P S Satsangi, VSM (Retd), Army Education Corps, was the Founder Chairman of the All India Personality Enhancement and Cultural Centre for Scholars (AIPECCS) Society.
His educational and professional experience was rich and varied. An early MSc (under 19 years age), Silver Medal at the Indian Military Academy, BEd (Chancellor Medallist) and MEd (Gold Medallist), he was Principal, Sainik School, Tilaiya, Bihar; Principal, Yadavindra Public School, Chandigarh; Chairman-cum-Principal, Rotary Public School, Gurgaon, and CSKM Public School, New Delhi. Colonel Satsangi won many awards and medals" the Vishisht Sewa Medal (1979), Bal Mitra (1983), Bal Sahyog (1987), PTA of India (1989), the Kohinoor Ratna (1991) and the Delhi Ratna (1998). The Founder Chairman was a model of relentless work, setting a hectic and exacting daily schedule for himself. He guided us by example to greater effort and hard work. Never resting on his laurels, he continued to strive for greater perfection and excellence.
'Knowledge is the king of education' it is said in all the scriptures of the world. And where there is a king there has to be a prince. One such prince of both knowledge and education was the dynamic educationist, visionary and thinker, Late Shri Prem Saran Satsangi.
His constructive and innovative approach of opening the doors and discovering the joys of learning for every child – whether conventionally labelled a low-achiever or a high-achiever, won him the affection of the children, their families and the many who came into contact with him.
He epitomized the complete teacher – academician, sports person, father-figure, loving disciplinarian and a motivator. He spent all his waking hours in the pursuit of excellence in education – first as a teacher and instructor, later as a Sainik School Principal and finally as the founder of the CSKM Public School; where he institutionalized the ‘Busy Bee’ concept of work being the greatest pleasure of life.
He opened the door to all the poor and needy, the special needs child, the gifted child and nurtured them into skilled dreamers…
In honoring Shri Prem Saran Satsangi (posthumously) with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Education, we pay tribute to the eternal spirit of The Teacher.
