Dr A R Manjunath

Chairman (Ph.D., PGDTE)

A well-lettered personage with cerebral power and supernal wisdom was mentored by Rev. Sri Madiyal Narayan Bhat in Alike during the early 1970s. He had the divine sight of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in 1961 for the first time. Thereupon, he considers Baba as his divine afflatus and Madiyal Narayan Bhat as his muse. A maven English professor; a sports enthusiast who had served as NSS Special Officer at Sports Directorate of Youth and Sports; a lover of adventure who joined the General Thimmaiah National Adventure Academy as an Administrator and enjoyed being in the coterie of young men full of vim and vigour, took a major turn to the big league of Vidhana Soudha (Karnataka State Government Office) at Bangalore and served there for 18 years as Private Secretary to seven ministers in succession for different portfolios like Adult education & Library; Planning & Common Area Development Authority; Primary & Secondary education; Kannada language & Culture; Science & Technology, Rural development, Panchayat Raj and Education; Chairman of Legislative Council; Urban Development, Law & Parliamentary affairs. After a howling success in the professional orbit, it was time for his proficiency to be of use to his own master’s philanthropic work and ergo, he was beckoned by Baba in the year 2011 to take over as the Director of the nascent Campus, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning at Muddenahalli. Subsequent to this, he was posted as the Director of Sri Sathya Sai Centre for Human Excellence to take commission of another embryonic Campus in the year 2014. Ensuing this, he has yet again been entrusted with Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence as its Pro-chancellor and also as Chairman of Sri Sathya Sai Vidyaniketanam effective June 2018. This indeed is a sign of his credibility due to his capability, consistency and commitment.

Sri Praveen

Mr Praveen Jogur

Warden (B.Sc.)

Mr Praveen Jogur was one of the pioneers of Sri Sathya Sai Vidyaniketanam. He joined the Institution in November 2012, with a readiness to always lend his ears to the problems of children, be a part of their joys, teach them etiquettes and ensure that the students are healthy in body, mind and spirit, which is his passion.

Bhargav Sai

Mr Bhargav Sai

Deputy Warden(B.A.)

“If the word ‘clarity’ personifies itself, then it will humanize into Mr Bhargav Sai”, says his colleagues in an appreciative manner. His greatest beauty is his clarity of purpose towards serving society, as an inspiration drawn from Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. A graduate from the Sri Sathya Sai Centre for Human Excellence and a Deputy Warden at a young age of 21 years, the momentum of his focussed actions has no resistance in it since the time he joined the School in the year 2017. Campus cleanliness and organising events are his engagements apart from the expeditions undertaken in Social Science, English and Excellence in Human values, along with the students.
