Eminent Anandians in the service of humanity

From its very inception, Ananda sought to ensure a high standard of scholarship and discipline among its students, in addition to inculcating a liberal Buddhist outlook in their worldview. This has generated a steady stream of students who have been able to serve with distinction at the highest levels, in almost all the professions.

We will look at a sample of the higher professions as understood in this country, those that require a prolonged period of learning at an institution of higher education: Medicine, Engineering, Law, Accountancy and Teaching. We would also look at a few other walks of life, such as Business and Commerce, which are commonly not classified as professions, where Anandians have served with distinction.

This would certainly not mean that there are no other professions of equal or even higher status, or that there are no Anandians adorning those professions, or that even in the professions listed above; there are no other Anandians of high or even higher achievement than those presented here. These would merely serve to illustrate, by way of example, the proud achievements of Ananda in fulfilling its aspirations.


The incompleteness of the professions selected and of the individuals selected for each profession mentioned is acknowledged. Yet it is felt that the benefit of having a record, as complete as possible, outweighs this drawback of incompleteness.

[The different sections of this essay have been compiled by different authors, and from varied sources. Hence, they exhibit different styles, and even though there was an agreed criterion for the selection of names for inclusion, the interpretation of this criterion naturally varies from writer to writer. Subject to these reservations, it is believed that this is a fair representation of the spectrum of old Anandians.]
