JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME
Today, Aakash is a name synonymous with the most premium and successful coaching institute in India. It is a brand known for delivering focused and quality coaching and is a leader in the whole paradigm shift that happened in India when it comes to competitive exam coaching. It is all down to Dr. Chaudhry’s persistent hard work and vision that he had for Aakash. Born in 1949 in a small town of Haryana called Hathin, Dr. Chaudhry always dreamt big. His humble beginnings only strengthened his desire to do something grand in life. He focused hard on his studies and completed his Master’s degree in Science (Botany) from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science(BITS), Pilani, Rajasthan in 1972.Soon after completing his studies, he started his professional journey as a teacher at Vaish College, in Bhiwani, Haryana. He taught at the college from 1972-73 and then he moved to New Delhi where he taught at the Hansraj Model School. He then moved to Delhi Administration schools where he became the Principal through the UPSC in 1993. It was during his journey as a teacher that he realized that there was a huge gap in the coaching segment in the country. At the time, coaching centres were not at all known in India and it was an extremely unorganized sector. Dr. Chaudhry saw it as an opportunity to carve his niche and started Aakash in his house with just 12students. In his first batch only, 7 out of 12 students cleared the tests and word spread quickly about his small setup. Rest as they say is history.

A few years back he decided that he wants to take it up to a bigger level and spread this knowledge and awareness. For most establishing a giant like Aakash and keeping it consistently on the top for decades is the dream run.
