"Art is long, and Time is fleeting", means that the work given to us is vast and time consuming, but time, like a river, never stops and waits. Though our hearts are brave and stout, at other times we fear death and our heart beats when we realize that death is a certainty. This situation of our heart, is being compared to the beating of drums at the funeral march. The underlying message conveys to us, that we should utilize our limited time span to the fullest, instead of wasting it in the thought of inevitable death.
"Do something great for the society, feel proud to depart, keeping behind teary memories in the hearts of people."
Shri Pankoj Kumar Sarkar, a Chartered Accountant by qualification and with a professional experience spanning 27 years, laid down the foundation of his dreams to build a premier institution of excellence, dedicated to his beloved mother "Late Saraswati Devi Sarkar", as a tribute.
It is his commitment, prudence and visionary approach towards school education, that has redefined the meaning of education. Armed with an ambition to change the educational landscape of India, our chairman through his rigorous research of over a decade, is creating an institution with world class infrastructure catering to the needs of the 22nd century.
He is a man who believes in walking on a road less travelled. He believes, that any dream can be turned into reality. For him, education provides for the complete development of a child. Education is meant to make a child learn about the intricacies of life. Mere upliftment in academics is not sufficient for the complete development of a child. A child should be suitably equipped to negotiate all the hurdles of life.
"In the world's broad field of battle, In the bivouac of Life, Be not like dumb, driven cattle! Be a hero in the strife!"
He is a strict follower of the maxim, "Hard work has no substitute" and it is his deep desire to implant this simple formula into the hearts of little children, so that they can be successful in their lives even after passing out of school.
With a smile & warmth that is extended to the entire fraternity of SDIS, Mrs. Piyali Sarkar is the most vital link between students, faculty & the management. A highly decorated lady, a master's holder in philosophy & with well-established business ethics & communication skills, Shrimati Piyali Sarkar believes in being a life long learner.
"Lives of great men all remind us, We can make our life sublime And, departing, leaves behind us, Footprints on the sands of time"
The lives of so many great and successful men remind us that even we can achieve those heights through a strong desire coupled with our willpower and if we do that, we would be living forever in our works, in the hearts of people. Immortality here is being compared to footprints, on the sands of time. In other words, we will not be living forever here, but we can leave our mark on the infinite flow oftime through our good work, to inspire later generations to follow in our footsteps.
It is my utmost pleasure as a Director of the school to tell you that the city of Bankura will now be illuminated with the colours of education, culture, sports, heritage and music. In the honour of his beloved mother late Saraswati Devi Sarkar, our Chairman Sir CA Shri Pankaj Kumar Sarkar is going to set up a premier Educational institution "SARASWATI DEVI INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL" with modern facilities catering to the demands of the 22nd Century. It is built on international lines maintaining the world wide accepted protocols for educational industry. Saraswati Devi International School is an educational hub, integrating students, teachers and renowned educationists from various corners of the world.
Education is not mere learning through books and appearing for exams. It has a bigger domain. Education is something that provides for complete development of a child right from academics to personal development. A child should have moral values and discipline, that will guide him throughout his life, to achieve success. True education is something that transforms a child into a good human being and allows him to prosper in life.
Apart from academics the school has professional coaching for renowned sports like archery, rifle shooting, horse riding, skating, gymnastics, basketball, lawn tennis, table tennis, yoga, swimming etc. As a director, I visualize every student securing a good position in co-curricular activities and sports, apart from academics.
The philosophy of our school is to permit and facilitate the achievements of subjective individuality. Thus, this School attempts to extract the uniqueness in each individual and nurture their growth. Our goal is to teach students with innovative strategies and modern technology, so that they perform well not only in CBSE exams but also in various competitive exams. Our focus being discipline, a caring attitude, personalised attention, instilling a spirit of humility in the minds of the children in order to enable them to meet the challenges of this millennium, so that they excel with flying colours.
I warmly welcome you to the domain of Saraswati Devi International School, Bankura.

We do not Just Teach but Create Learners. We are not an Industry where manufacturing takes place, but a follow concept of Creation, Differently with Freedom of development.
"Every corn has its own puffing time". All flowers of a single plant even don't bloom at one time. If at all, the shape and size may differ. Believe in power of TIME and have patience to enjoy the spring.
With a revolutionary dream "Education is not just the need of the time & society but should be the Priority" I with my entire team am committed to chase unless it is achieved. I do not feel regretted in failing to achieve and keep on retrying again & again, unless the goal is fully achieved.
I would request all parents to gift their children with their "Time" Dash Mr. Manas Ranjan that by far remains the best present. I always lay emphasis on the importance of your "Presence" rather than "Presents" and I would like to stress upon the significance of quality time spent together. As sensible parents, we should not burden the children with their own patronizing ambitions and longings. Children in all honesty want supportive hands that can assist them to identify their own latent talent and groom them to be what they wish to be. For this purpose I request you to partner with us and join hands to provide our children with effective tools of learning that help them to make their own identity rather than be predecessors of geniuses.
I am very proud to be the PRINCIPAL of this school.
