24th October, 1884 is the day that marks the beginning of a journey that continues to this day and would continue for eons to come.
By founding the Deccan Education Society on what happens to be one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar (‘Vijaya Dashsami’), these great stalwarts embarked on a path that would, they were convinced, lead the masses to a new awakening and salvation.
They believed in education as the best means of social transformation.
With faith and determination, they steadfastly pursued their mission and the acorn of the yesteryears grew into an oak.
Time has vindicated their faith and vision.In less than three months, the fledgling Society started what is today one of the most illustrious, renowned and highly esteemed institutions – Fergusson College, even the mere mention of which evokes reverential and proud feelings in the hearts of millions.
It has achieved an iconic status.The activities of the Society soon picked up momentum, and one after another, other institutions - schools and colleges – came to be started or brought within its fold.The DES family was growing.
There were significant landmark occasions in its life, when,for instance, the Society decided - on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Fergusson College in1935 - to start a technology institute on its campus, and later started Brihan Maharashtra College ofCommerce in 1943, only the second single-facultycommercecollege in the then Bombay province.Today, Deccan Education Society is a dynamic conglomeration of well over 45 educationalinstitutions, acknowledged as centres of quality education, with firm commitment to the pursuit ofexcellence.
The DES institutions – at Pune, Mumbai, Sangli, Satara and Wai range from preprimaryschools to post-graduate and research institutions.
They include primary, secondary andhigher-secondary schools, degree colleges in Arts, Science and Commerce, Management,Agriculture and Law with facilities for post-graduate studies in several subjects, institutes oftechnical and vocational education, and the recently started colleges of nursing and physiotherapy.
