“Throughout my life, I have been deeply influenced by the values and cultural heritage of India, Europe and the far East. This School is a culmination of my vision to merge the finest educational practices of these worlds. Here, each Sagarian is encouraged to become confident, inquisitive and independent minded, while acquiring the virtues of excellence, discipline and respect.” Late Dr. Vidya Sagar
A barrister from Lincoln's Inn and a doctor of law from the Free University, Berlin, Dr. Sagar earned a reputation as one of the country's most formidable legal minds soon after admission to the Indian bar in 1952. He took over the practice of Remfry & Son in 1973 (renamed Remfry & Sagar in 1991) and with his unique talents steered the firm to become the Indian face of Intellectual Property law. His consuming passion for developing young talent also found expression in The Sagar School, which he nurtured so lovingly. Of sharp mind, strong will and unmatched vigour, uncompromising in his insistence on the highest standards of professional integrity and conduct, he was unfazed by difficulties. He was a visionary but a rather unassuming one as he shunned the limelight. For all those who had the privilege of knowing him personally, none can forget the sheer range of his experiences and the depth of his curiosity.
