When seven blessed teachers fondly called "Saptarishis" founded the K.L.E. Society in 1916, they meant to create an educational institution to provide basic literacy to the children of the farming community who were deprived of this basic right. Perhaps, they never imagined what they resolved to create would one day emerge as an educational empire of 280+ institutions of exceptional qualities that all other institutions in the country would be judged against it.
The K.L.E. achieved success, although success did not come so easily. Financial constraints, bitter criticism and humiliations from their adversaries had to be endured. But the resolute Saptarishis pursued their vision unswervingly, shrewdly harnessing the noble souls and the philanthropic hands of the leaders of the community while fighting against the gloomy conditions of the British Rule.
Their priceless legacy is a World-Class-Leader of quality education in almost all spheres of human knowledge, notably in Medicine, Engineering, Dental Sciences, Pharmacy, Management, Law, Fashion Designing, Hotel Management, IT, Arts, Science, Commerce and so on.
Democratic management, scientific approach in administration endeared the members of the trust, the general public and the government too. Transparency in financial and resource management is the envying feature of KLE.

Society creating excitement among the educationalists worldwide. It has, in fact, baffled the management experts as to the skills and theory with which he carved an educational empire not only of global stature but also of global excellence.
