According to a Chinese proverb, “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for the lifetime, educate people”. This sums up the entire philosophy of the time and life of Shri K.L.Gupta Ji, a visionary and inspiration to many. With his sheer hard work and lifelong dedication, he built up the entire GNIOT Group of Institutions – a name that is taken with reverence and admiration.
Shri K.L.Gupta Ji was born on 18 th February, 1961, in Village Karsindhu, District Jind, Haryana, to father Late Shri Ramchander Bansal Ji and mother Late Shrimati Bhanpati Devi Ji. He lost his parents at a very young age and then he along with his younger brother Shri Bishan Lal Gupta Ji and five sisters moved on with their lives with courage and confidence. In 1978 he got married to Shrimati Kamla Devi Ji and had two sons, Shri Rajesh Gupta and Shri Gaurav Gupta.
With his far sightedness, devotion, and his zeal to do work which touches more than one lives, in the year 2000, Shri Ram Educational Trust was established. He realized to put our country forward, we must make our youth technically sound. Engineering is one domain where the youth can take constructive steps in order to strive for a more capable and advanced nation. Opening up an engineering college and providing the students and even the teaching fraternity with opportunities that would help them to strive for the best and achieve the same too, was his only dream. It was this drive and passion that saw him to found and run the GNIOT Group of Institutions for over a decade.
Taking this thought one step ahead, Shri Krishan Lal Gupta Ji realized that in order to transform the education system, it would be more imperative if we start working on it from the very beginning. This lead to the opening of primary and secondary schools for children so that they get proper guidance and mentor-ship at the earliest.
Though he is not with us today, he is and will always be the guiding star in all our progressions.
We miss him dearly.
