A dream come true: The story behind Deeksha Kalyani’s ‘The Kalyani School’


The Kalyani School

The Kalyani School has been established with the view that education is the soul of the society. It is the kindling of an eternal flame that represents the light of spirit, knowledge and victory.


According to our nation’s father, Mahatma Gandhi, “If we want to reach real peace in the world, we should start educating children.” Hence, it goes without saying that those who educate children are the true heroes.

Today, we’d like to discuss one such personality who dream of building a school that not only focused on providing the best education to young minds, but also strived to instil a sense of being a responsible citizen of the country.


Deeksha Kalyani, the Director of The Kalyani School, first dream of starting a school in the education hub of India, Pune, in 2015. Inspired by her mother, Mrs. Kalyani strived to create a school that provides a child-centric and loving atmosphere, which compels students to love coming to school.

There’s no doubt that Mrs. Kalyani faced multiple challenges and obstacles in her way. But, with the support of the dynamic Principal, Mrs. Nirmal Waddan and a team of exemplary coordinators and teachers, The Kalyani School has quickly reached the epitome of success.

A true visionary, Deeksha Kalyani has created a place of joy for children, wherein they can get the best education and enjoy world-class infrastructure, including airy, well-furnished classrooms, multiple activity rooms and multi-purpose halls. Furthermore, in an attempt to encourage children to harness their unique skills and passions, the school also focuses on multiple extra curricular activities and offers fantastic sports facilities.

These resources have without a doubt helped the school’s children immensely, as they have shone in multiple inter-school and co-curricular competitions, and have brought many laurels to the school.

They say that learning never stops, and how true is that, even for teachers. Deeksha Kalyani accepts nothing but the best for her students, which is why the school conducts multiple training workshops throughout the year to help their teachers hone their skills, to upgrade their knowledge and to learn the best teaching practices possible. These workshops not only build stronger teachers, they also refresh their minds and give them a chance to innovate in the classroom.

In a short span of just seven years, The Kalyani School has bagged multiple achievements under the guidance of Mrs. Deeksha Kalyani. But, the story is far from over. In Mrs. Kalyani’s own words, “Personally, I am very satisfied with what we have accomplished so far, with all the achievements of our students and teachers. But the journey has just begun, and there is still a long road to travel. I am looking forward to seeing the school grow from strength to strength.”
