We are known as ‘Educational Venture of ZEAL Industries’, as we understand , Education is the backbone of every nation and is the stepping stone for a country to move into the niche of a developed nation. Educated individuals play the most vital role in nation building. During my educational phase I faced some constraints after which I decided that given an opportunity I will ensure that the current generation should not face the same. With the intent of providing quality education to contribute towards nation building, on the 23rd of March 1996 the Foundation stone of Zeal Education Society was laid at the Hingane- Khurd Campus…
In our endeavour to impart professional education to the youth we have in our Campus well equipped and well furnished infrastructure.
As the Sanskrit adage says: Tamso ma jyotirgamaya… which means from darkness lead me to light; our aim is to dissolve the darkness of lack of knowledge with a lamp of knowledge we call ZEAL…
Zeal implies enthusiasm and it can be experienced in every nook and corner of Zeal Education Society.
It gives me immense pleasure to see the joy on our students’ face when they create a Map of India with a human chain or compete in a Drag race- their joy knows no bounds. This is what we stand for pure energy in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and exemplary academic performance.
We are blessed to have with us a Team of Faculty and other members who are the Zeal family. Together we have grown over the last two decades and there is a long way to go.
To quote Robert Frost we the Zeal Family… have promises to keep and miles to go before we sleep…

To quote Winston Churchill “We shape our buildings. Thereafter, they shape us”. We shape our words, thereafter they shape us..
With the goal to structure the “Education experience”, to make the stereotypical walls of conventional norms both penetrable and scalable thereby transferring the ownership to the end users here our students to foster in them a sense of belonging and ownership, we at Zeal have established Center of Excellence in various departments.
The lifestyle priority of the millennials is defined by experiences, convenience, comfort and access. With this in the background at the forefront we have Zeal Fitness Club and Yoga Center.
We have a Music studio, Dance Studio, Recording Studio, Gymnasium, Archery, Shooting Range and Basketball Court.
The comprehensive development of an individual happens at mental, physical and spiritual level and so we have established a Zeal Meditation Center.
To quote George Bernard Shaw: “This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose you consider a mighty one, the being a force of nature, that the world will devote itself to making you happy.”
For me the purpose is to promulgate education in a refined manner to bring forth a paradigm shift in the quality of life of individuals. Through the contribution of our students we have undertaken certain projects in villages so as to facilitate better lifestyle through rain water harvesting, tree plantation. Under the Swach Bharat Abhiyaan our students clean villages. They guide people on energy conservation. Our students collected food grains for the drought affected farmers- these altruistic virtues are what make us ZEAL.
Come join hands with us to be the harbingers for change in the field of education… from KG to PG.

Vidya Dadati Vinayam, Vinaya Dadati Paatrataam, Paatratva Dhanamaapnoti, DhanaaDharmam Tatah Sukham … (विद्यां ददाति विनयं,विनयाद् याति पात्रताम्।पात्रत्वात् धनमाप्नोति,धनात् धर्मं ततः सुखम्॥)
Implies Knowledge begets discipline, from discipline one gains worthiness, from worthiness wealth is generated , from wealth an individual performs good deeds, which in turn leads to happiness.
I always attempt to listen to what is emerging from the students, to the course of being in the education system to augment; to bring it to reality as they desire. This aids in the process of achieving academic excellence. The more we talk to one another, the more we encourage our students and Faculty to express their views, the more we feel that it harbours a sense of belonging in the fraternity. We promote a positive synergy between participative and reflective openness.
Crystallizing intent requires being open to the larger intention and imaginatively translating the intuitions that arise into concrete images and visions that guide action. With this at the background we strive for perfection through redefining processes and focusing on both Faculty and Student development.
We are striding towards freeing up the learning curve.
Heartiest congratulations to the Zeal Fraternity for progression over two decades and warm wishes for the green future to come!
