The Group

Sunbeam was founded in 1972 by Late. Dr. Amritlal Ishrat Madhok and Late. Mrs. Deesh Ishrat Madhok, who felt the need of a private educational institution to cater to the holistic educational needs of the students fraternity in Varanasi and thus was born Sunbeam. Sunbeam started its momentous journey in a small rented apartment. Armed with a vision plus boundless energy and gaining credibility by the day, giant strides were made and the young institution grew rapidly in enrolment, quality and community recognition and soon outgrew its place of birth and it became obvious that a new location was needed.

Late. Mrs. Deesh Ishrat Madhok (Founder Mother of Sunbeam)

“A Saga of grit and determination, Of daring to dream, Of turning dreams into realities, Of having an impact over thousands of lives, Of shaping destinies…”

Late. Mrs. Deesh Ishrat Madhok was born on 10th September 1933 in Sialkot, had her preliminary education from Loreto Academy, Lahore that shaped her modern outlook towards education. In 1954, she met Dr. Amrit Lal Ishrat; a Persian scholar and got married to him on the 25th of May. She accompanied him to Iran and this is where the academician in her got a chance to prove her mettle. In 1963, they returned to Varanasi, a city, which since time immemorial has been a traditional seat of learning. In 1972, she started the Sunbeam School. The school intended to provide the students the best of the missionary school educational delivery system and that of the traditional schools prevalent during those days. The story after that is phenomenal. From 40 students in 1972, Sunbeam today has come a long way to the largest educational conglomerate in eastern U. P. with more than 11,000 students on roll. Mrs. Deesh Ishrat Madhok passed away on June 2003 but her legacy lives on in the temples of learning that she conceptualized and in the smiles and satisfaction of thousands of students who have found an anchor in their quest of knowledge exploration in Sunbeam, all thanks to her resolve and vision. She was indeed the lady who lit the lamp of modern education which illuminates Eastern UP today.

Late. Dr. Amrit Lal Ishrat Madhok

Late. Dr. Amrit Lal Ishrat Madhok was born on 2nd November, 1930, in Lahore. He pursued Master degree in Persian. Later on, he also pursued Master degree in History; Urdu, as well. He was awarded a scholarship by the Govt. He remained in Iran from 1961 to 1963, where he earned a D.Lit degree from Tehran University for his research work titled Shr-e-Farsee-Dar Hind. In 1972, he was awarded a Ph.D. degree by the Banaras Hindu University, for his research work titled Urdu Shaeyri Aur Punjabi. He served as a Prof. of Persian in Banaras Hindu University Dept. of Persian language. Thereafter he remained a continuous source of inspiration and the main driving force, behind the setting up of the Sunbeam Group of Educational Institutions. It is due to his patronism, coupled with hard work and devotion, that this Institution has reached the pinnacle of glory and has set a tradition throughout Uttar Pradesh.
