KLE is poised for celebrating its centenary commemorating that defining moment, the day on which 'Seven Dedicated Teachers'The Saptarishis' founded an Anglo-Vernacular school at Belgaum. That day, the 13th of November 1916, set in an event that changed the course of history in this part of India. These enthusiastic young graduates, overwhelmed with an ideology that filled their visionary minds, resolved to do something rare that would help the farming community in coming out of the gloom of educational deprivation that surrounded them. Although Shri S S Basavanal, Shri M R Sakhare, Shri H F Kattimani, Shri B B Mamadapur, Shri B S Hanchinal, Shri P R Chikodi and Shri V V Patil initially aimed at providing basic literacy to the children of the farming community, yet their historic feat was destined to grow into an amazing educational organization of 211 institutions today. Indeed, they were fortunate to have had the unstinted support of Rao Bahadur Rudragowda Artal, Shri V G Naik Bahadur Desai of Chachadi and Rao Bahadur Vaijappa Anigol in their mission. Despite many disadvantages, the perseverance with which they built the KLE is an inspiring history in itself. Since their efforts were selfless and the sacrifice was for a noble cause, people from all walks of life blessed them with their generous support. . view more »
