Born on 1st January 1960, Dr. Gadiya comes from a humble background. Son of Sh. Nand Lal Gadiya of Bansi, a village in District Chittorgarh, he nurtures a sense of pride in his roots that lie in the great tradition and glorious history of Mewar. He started his life in a very remote area and gradually rose to become one of the pioneering educationists of Rajasthan. He has established many educational Institutions in Chittorgarh, Delhi NCR and Ghaziabad to spread education among the young generation, belonging to rural areas, and more specifically, to underprivileged classes of society. He strongly believes that the young generation is truly sincere, dedicated and keen to adopt new practices of learning. They can enter any challenging arena and achieve success if they receive focused attention, inspiring atmosphere and a bit of extra care.After obtaining a degree of Bachelor of Commerce from Rajasthan University in 1980, he completed his CS (Inter) from the Institute of Company Secretaries of India in 1984 and Chartered Accountancy from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, New Delhi in 1988. He has also obtained the Ph.D. degree from Mohanlal Sukhadia University, Udaipur, Rajasthan under the supervision of Prof P.K. Jain, Director FMS, Mohanlal Sukhadia University, Udaipur.
Dr. Gadiya has made a distinct contribution to modernizing and revitalizing the existing education system that had lost its vigor and become rusted over time. Dr. Gadiya`s name should feature at the top for reinvigorating our education system as well as for offering modern but value‐based education to the young generation.
He is of the view that in order to educate the young generation in the present scenario, the education providers (teachers) should also be regularly updated, trained and motivated. Only then there is a possibility to convert the young generation into responsible, confident and self‐reliant youth of the country.
Therefore, he has developed a new mechanism to train the teachers in his institutions on a regular basis. His idea is that teachers should become mentors to their students. Mentors refer to such personalities who stand apart from the rest by virtue of their deeds and achievements, so that students get pepped up by looking up to their mentors and their stupendous feats. However, mentors not only leave their lasting footprints on the making of a society but also, and more importantly, inspire others to follow in their footsteps and attain bigger goals for the common good of mankind. Therefore he has developed counseling/ mentoring system in his Educational Institutions.
From time to time, many eminent Indians from all walks of life have come forward to show their mettle. It gives me immense pleasure to state that Dr. Gadiya is the Founder of Mewar University, which has emerged as a unique seat of learning and higher education in a very short span of time. It further adds to my pleasure to bring to the notice the fact that the University has been able to achieve its avowed purpose of making higher and technical education accessible to the weaker and deprived sections of our society in such a short period.
This is testified by the University’s track record so far – out of around 11500 students enrolled, 75% belong to the weaker sections (SC, ST, OBC & Minority community).
Dr. Gadiya has always been at the vanguard of the social and value awakening movement that has exercised a tremendous impact on the minds of conscious individuals. At the very early stages of his career, he realized that national renaissance could not be achieved through the narrow gates of politics but through reformative education. That is why he kept himself away from politics and instead devoted himself to the field of education. He is a true educationist who has always been in search of new and innovative methods of teaching that would create interest in the minds of the young generation.
Dr. Gadiya always likes to discuss with the students the purpose of education, which, according to him, is not merely to pass examinations after learning a few facts and acquiring some skills, but to understand the complexity of life. He urges the students to appreciate their role in the creation of a ‘new’ world that will exist without fear, conflict or contradiction. This can be achieved only if ‘right education’ is provided in an atmosphere where intelligence and goodness could be nurtured without any fear.
Dr. Gadiya has an indefatigable spirit. He is aggressive in his style of working, vigorous in pursuing his objectives and always committed to put all his energy and resources to work till the goal is achieved. He is courageous and works with utmost passion, honesty, dedication and integrity. He gives due respect to all others around him possessing similar attitude.
He is a keen lover of music, fine arts, dance drama and philosophy, and he always likes to involve himself with students’ academic and cultural activities. He is truly a social reformer. He likes to promote cultural activities and performances that portray our national heritage, tradition and values and spread feeling of nationalism, cooperation, love and kindness among the people. In his journey to enrich personal wisdom, he was first inspired by his mother, who epitomized the Indian culture, tradition and values. As he entered the arena of higher education, Sh. Gunwantjee came to him like a beacon leading him to greater realization of the essence of pure life. Dr. Gadiya is also inspired by great saints of India such as Swami Vivekanand and Swami Dayananda Saraswati.
He works round‐the‐clock with determination, dedication, discipline and devotion, and to him, ‘work is worship’. A strong believer in team work, he ensures the involvement of all team members in the process of decision making. He takes up all assignments with great enthusiasm and shoulders the responsibility for the outcome of all decisions. He loves to work with the young generation so as to help them emerge as confident, responsible and self‐reliant citizens of India in future. He has a special fascination to be in touch with honest, patriotic, courageous, hard working and sincere personalities, making their contribution in public life or in government departments.
In his professional life, his source of inspiration was Shri R.P. Bansal. In his social life, he has been immensely influenced by Shri Ram Bahadur Rai, an eminent journalist and Dr. Mahesh Chand Sharma, a social worker and ex‐member of Parliament (Rajaya Sabha). Besides, our true national heroes such as Maharana Pratap, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Mahamana Pt. Madan Mohan Malviya have always been guiding lights to him in his journey to serve the society.
He worked with Shri R.P.Bansal, Senior Advocate (High Court and Supreme Court) and got expertise in Law practice during 1986 to 1990. He is the Founder Member and Senior Partner of M/S Anil Ashok & Associates, Chartered Accountants, Delhi since 1988. This professional Chartered Accountant firm is engaged in the practice of Direct and Indirect Taxation, Audit, Company Law matters and Project Management and Financing. The firm has its Head Office in Delhi, three branches at Mumbai, Udaipur and Hardwar and has more than 100 qualified staff on its rolls. Besides, he is also the Founder Member and Senior Partner of Mewar Associates (Loss Assessors & Insurance Surveyors).
