“Our abilities can be based on the intelligence, however our behavior only depends on the mind development.
Today’s education system is focused only on the Intelligence. So it is not just important but essential, to focus on the development of mind.”
– Dr. Y. K. Shinde
“To avail all the facilities to a child, is not its development. The true development is to provide him right opportunities at right time.”
– Dr Y K Shinde
Parents do have very important role to play in the Child development. The overall surrounding today is that, Education System is with confined direction and society is not interested to contribute in development process of the Education. Hence parents have the more responsibility to play in such situations. The mindset of parents today is that they are ready to spend any amount of money for their children but not able to give time for them because of so called their busy schedule.
Hence we have realized that parental counseling has became utmost important while working on personality development of children.

Today Education is become Examination oriented aiming for only money minting. Today not only Parents, Society and Government are ignorant about real Education but also Educational Institutions, Universities and Educationalist are become directionless. This has happened because all of them are developed and outcome of this routine Examination oriented pattern. Unfortunately today Teachers are giving high prestige to money and power minded which is valueless in reality due to their ignorance.
Dr. Y. K. Shinde had taken up the mission of educating the Teachers to understand the real meaning of Education process. He believed that the real wealth and power of a Teacher is- how many students he has lead to success and character in his life. “Shikshak Sanjivani” is outcome of his noble dream of taking the Education System to our ancient value based Education of creating the good characters.
“Well-Cultured and Dynamic Teachers only can develop well-cultured and dynamic pupils. Dr. Y. K. Shinde has taken up this mighty task to develop such Teachers is really a great news for Education System as a whole. I wish him success in his great endeavor.”
– Late Shri Madhukarrao Chaudhari, Former education minister, Maharashtra
“In marshy land of Examination, Education System has lost the wheeling capability. Dr. Y. K. Shinde had taken an oath to rotate the wheels of Education system back on the developing tracks like an alone lighthouse guiding the sailors in deep sea.”
– Shri V V Chiplunkar, Former Director of Education, Maharashtra
“Dr. Y. K. Shinde rejuvenating the mind power of children to create a real mankind which will form mainstream of Education system. This will rejuvenate the Public as well as Government to create developed & well-cultured personalities.”
