The management of the school is under the guidance of Sri Aurobindo Society at Puducherry.
Mr. Pradeep Narang
Chairman, Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry.
Born in an industrial family, Shri Pradeep Narang went into business after having completed Masters in Economics and looked after the family sugar mills and ancillary industries for two decades. However, having been drawn to the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother he came to Pondicherry in 1982. With something in him touched to the core, he decided to dedicate himself to spreading the light of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in various ways, giving up business totally thereafter. In retrospect, he sees it as deeper, subtler, quieter search that was always within him that there was ‘something more’ to life than its seeming humdrum affairs. He is at present the full time honorary Chairman of Sri Aurobindo Society.
In his thirty years in the service of Sri Aurobindo Society he has guided the setting up and management of the schools run by the Society across the country, besides overseeing the other aspects of work of Sri Aurobindo Society. He looks into the financial, legal, campus/construction related matters and any key decisions regarding the school.
Mr. Vijay Poddar
Member Executive – Admin & Finance, Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry.
Shri Vijay Poddar, otherwise known as ‘Vijay bhai’ is a guiding light and inspiration for all those who come in contact with him. He moved to Pondicherry when he was a seven year old child and grew up in the blessed environs under the grace of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. Vijay bhai studied in the school at Sri Aurobindo Ashram and then later became a part of the ashram. He lives and follows the principles of Integral yoga. As a pillar of Sri Aurobindo Society, he’s initiated many projects in a bid to take forward the aim of Sri Aurobindo Society, which is to facilitate the advent of a more spiritualised society in every walk of life.
He never fails to inspire people to work for Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
