The Visonary of Saraswati
Saraswati Group of Educational Institutes started as Saraswati Dental College in the year 1996 and has seen a tremendous growth in the past 14 years. SGEI was born out of the vision of one man who has ever since headed this Group with vigor and vitality. Col. (Dr.) T.S. Mathur was born in the year 1942 in the city of Lucknow in the state of Uttar Pradesh. After pursuing his studies in the field of Dental Surgery from the prestigious King Georges Medical College, Lucknow, Col. Mathur was commissioned into the Indian Army as a First Class Officer in the year 1965. During the 25 years in the Army command he saw various Dental Centers all over India. During his travel across the length and breath of the country, Col. Mathur got the opportunity to experience various cultures and systems spread across various states of our beautiful Country. In 1990 Col. Mathur took retirement from the Indian Army and settled down in his hometown Lucknow. He realized that Uttar Pradesh was far behind in the field of professional education when compared to states like Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. With a vision to give the students a state of art education based on Global needs and high moral values he conceptualized what today stands as the top Dental College of the State,” The Saraswati Dental College” or SDC, in the year 1998, incorporating and invocing the name of The Goddess of Learning “Maa Saraswati”. In the year 2004 SDC got its Recognition from the DCI and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare New Delhi and Post Graduate program (M.D.S.) was subsiquently started in the year 2005. This M.D.S. program has set benchmarks in the field of Dental teaching and research.
In the year 2007 Col.Mathur took upon him to create one of the finest Private Engeneering Institutes in the State by the name of “Saraswati Institute of Technology and Management” or SITM. The MBA program was added in the year 2008 and in 2009. Col. Mathur established “Saraswati Institute of Business Management and Research” SIBMR which renders Post Graduate Diploma in Management. 2009 also saw the establishment of one of the best Aviation Academies in the Country. The “Saraswati Aviation Academy” or SAA and a 100 beded general hospital by the name of “Saraswati Hospital and Research Centre”.
It is said that behind every successful man there is a woman and Col. Mathur’s wife and the Vice Chairperson of the Group, Mrs. Madhu Mathur, who has been a teacher for the past 35 years and Visharad in Indian Classical Music from the famous Pryag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad, has always been a pillar of strength to Col. Mathur and a mother and mentor to all the students of Saraswati.
