Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, Sri Amritsar, an apex body of the Sikhs, has always combined educational aims with its humanitarian and charitable enterprises. Though religious in spirit and objectives, SGPC, Sri Amritsar, performs multidimensional functions for the good of society, and providing opportunities for education to maximum number of youngsters is one of them. To fulfil this mission, SGPC has specially focused on opening schools and colleges in rural and semi-urban pockets of Punjab. Taking over the direct control of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College at Anandpur Sahib in 1977 was a step towards bringing education to those who had fewer means and less awareness. Since then the college may have seen many ups and downs, but it has never looked back. It gives me real pleasure to know that Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College is fulfilling SGPC’s endeavour to provide a learning environment which not only nourishes and refines the creativity of the youth but also prepares them to be effective citizens and wholesome individuals. The upward trend of the college graph during the past few years, both qualitatively and quantitatively, is indeed commendable. Another point of satisfaction for us is that most of the students are well-versed in the basic concepts of Sikh culture, such as purity of thinking, dignity of labour and dedication to serve the less fortunate and the underprivileged. Situated at a place of vital religious and historical significance, this college is making every possible effort to leave a lasting impact on the surroundings through its awareness drives and community-centred activities, too. I wish Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College, Anandpur Sahib, every success in its noble aim of furthering the cause of education and also pray for its bright future.
With best wishes, Adv. S. Harjinder Singh Dhami President
Education is a primary factor in the efforts of a nation to develop a highly skilled workforce for competing in the global market. Higher Education is the fuel for a nation’s economic growth, a key driver of invention and innovation and a necessary platform for job creation. It is indeed a great pleasure to note that Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, Sri Amritsar, an apex body of the Sikhs, is making continuous efforts in social and educational fields so as to reach and benefit the students from all sections of the society. Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College, Sri Anandpur Sahib, not only focuses on the theoretical curriculum but also helps in the development of students’ personality, extra-curricular activities and overall perspective because education plays a key role in the total development of the society. The role of education is definitely not limited to impart and grasp knowledge and theory. The true goal of education is much beyond just awarding degrees and certificates to the students. In fact, the ultimate goal of education is discovering the meaning of life and seeking its fulfilment. Education is all about the quest for knowledge, humanity, culture, wisdom and sharpness, but it should be noted that knowledge is not given but earned, and character is not granted but cultivated. This college has everything which is necessary to become a good institution such as highly trained faculty, rich library, accomplished placement division, modern teaching methods and liberty to think and express. Higher education in rural area opens up altogether fresh avenues: it generates employment and it ensures a positive attitude to see the universe from better angle. Simultaneously, it enables the youth to analyze, determine and apply new ideas in the constructive development of the society. I am aware of the fact that in order to satisfy present day demands of higher education, the future of education is dependent on the efforts of the institutions like Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College, Sri Anandpur Sahib, which provide market relevant programmes and courses to ensure maximum employment of the youth. The college has grown to become an institution of great repute both at the local and the national level. I have no doubt that Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College, Sri Anandpur Sahib, will always be an institution to reckon with. Display of such a high level of achievement is entirely based on sound traditions and a splendid vision that has propelled this institution to its current great heights and consistent pursuit of excellence. Wishing the students of the College a bright future in pursuing their professional career. My whole hearted appreciation also goes to the academic staff for their unwavering commitment and resolve in achieving all-round success.
