Sahibzada Ajit Singh Academy India
This Institution is named after the eldest son of Sri Guru Gobind Singh
Ji, the tenth Guru of Sikhs. Sahibzada Ajit Singh in his teens, had been
the Commander of Guru’s Army which had been fighting against Tyranny of
Mughals. Even at the very early age, he had been so wise to understand
the spiritual philosophy of his great father who created ‘Khalsa Panth’
in 1699, A way of life of the pure one’s who become Role-Models to the
World. He died fighting against the Mughals in the battlefield of
Chamkaur in 1704.
Sahibzada Ajit Singh Academy, a welfare project, has been established by
Mr Sukhjinder Singh, a 1984 riot victim, with the blessings of Sant Baba
Kartar Singh Ji. By 1992, it provided coaching to college and university
students and prepared them for competitive examinations. This Academy
guided and got settled more than 5000 young boys & girls as Bank
Officers, Teachers and Civil Servants.
During interaction with the grown-ups it was realized that physical,
mental and spiritual maturity is an integrated part of human personality
and the right time to feed the same is before, one attains the age of
sixteen. Parents as well as society is not capable enough to provide the
required guidance and the environment to the young ones, according to
the changing trends of human life and need of the hour keeping in mind
the importance of one’s past, heritage and culture. It is required that
the young generation must be guided and given the rich environment where
they could develop themselves to seek their skies anywhere in the world.
So, the management of Sahibzada Ajit Singh Academy, under the direction
of Mr Sukhjinder Singh, the Founder Director, decided to establish a
residential school, rich with culture and heritage of India, where the
students could see the entire world all around with all its scientific
and economic progress.
In April 1993, the Management of the Academy established this
residential school. The Village Panchayat of Railon Khurd in Distt.
Ropar provided a piece of Land on Ropar-Morinda Road. Today, there are
800 students studying in this Institution. Among them, 200 students are
boarders. Most of them are wards of NRI's, who have come to study over
here from every corner of the world.
THERE ARE SEPARATE HOSTELS FOR BOYS AND GIRLS. All faculty members are
vegetarian and teetotaller. Vegetarian food is served in the hostels.
The teacher student ratio is 1: 25. The campus of the institution is
spread over 11 acre of land. The institution provides very fine extra
curricular activities as well as sports to its students for their
over-all development. The management as well as faculty become
Role-Models for the students where they wish to be like them. The
Institution is run on the philosophy that scientific spirituality must
dominate body & mind, being it essential for creating a brave new world
with super thinking, universal brotherhood, peace and respect to women.
For all moral and spiritual developments, the students are given logics
& lessons, selected from Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Holy Bible, Holy Kuran &
Holy Bhagwadh Gita.
"A BOOK OF DIVINITY FOR SUPERLIVING" written by Mr Sukhjinder Singh, The
Founder Director of the Academy has been added in the syllabus. This
book very scientifically answers the questions that emerge in the hearts
of the students in regard to moral and ethics, spirituality, life here
and there after.
This is the Institution where there is no drug-addiction, smoking,
Chewing of Tobacco etc. A special rational care is given to the young
ones (making them realize the true values of life) that they may not
indulge in so called ‘Love-affairs’ which spoil their valuable lives.
