Starting in 2008, SAI International School is now counted as the fourth best school of the country and number one of Odisha by Education World’s Top School Rankings for India, 2017.
At present, his school has 4,300 students, 600 teaching staff and 1,000 non-teaching staff. They charge around Rs 8,000 per child and the school is now till class 12.
Born on 1 June, 1963, in Bhubaneswar, he was the second of two siblings, with an elder sister.
His father was into a smalltime business and his earnings were barely enough to keep the kitchen fire burning.
He started his education from DM School, from where he cleared class 12 in 1980.
The fee was negligible as it was run by the central government. He then took admission at Ravenshaw College in Cuttack and graduated in 1982.
According to Bijah, – “I was good at studies so I was awarded a scholarship of Rs 600 per year, which helped me pay the tuition fees and look after other expenses,” he says, while sitting at his office in SAI International School. “I also used to give tuitions during my college days to look after my day-to-day expenses.”
In 1982, he enrolled for Chartered Accountancy and went to Kolkata for articleship with a private company. He was paid a stipend of Rs 600 per month.
“I had the responsibility of my family on my shoulders, as my father’s earnings were not enough,” he remembers.
“I wanted to save every penny of my stipend, so I used to share a room with a watchman of a post office at Princep Ghat Street in Kolk ata. I used to pay him Rs 100 every month as rent. It was a small room of around 10×8 sq ft with a common toilet. There were days when it was difficult to even manage two square meals a day…” – he once revealed in a media interview
