Our founder chairman, Sri M S Ramaiah was a firm believer in the saying ‘what we do for ourselves dies with us and that we do for others remains and is immortal’; walking the talk, he perceived that - for the nation to develop, investment in education and indigenous skill development was the way forward. Further endorsing this thought, he established the M S Ramaiah Educational institute in 1962 and M S Ramaiah Medical College in 1979. Ramaiah Academy of Health and Allied Sciences established under the Gokula Education Foundation soon branched out into seventeen educational institutions & two medical colleges.
Carrying his father’s legacy forward, Dr M R Jayaram has been extensively involved in providing quality education & healthcare. Dr. Jayaram was instrumental in integrating 19 institutions which are a part of the Ramaiah campus into one single identity – The Ramaiah Group. Ramaiah Group today encompasses the Memorial Hospital, the Medical College Hospital, the Dental Hospital and the Indic Specialty Ayurveda Restoration Hospital. Standing as a testimony to the values and ideologies of the founder, the group comprises an elite bunch of people who advocate commitment & excellence in their respective fields.
Jnanam, Vijnanam Cha Bhaktisamhitam
My oars of curiosity
Propel forward my boat of knowledge
On the river of wisdom
Towards the horizon of enlightenment
The energy of this universe is devotion
Devotion to my Guru, my teacher
Devotion to the quest
Devotion to the unreachable horizon
I may never arrive
Yet I forever move forward
For the loftiest goal
Is the journey itself
