Prof. M.S. Pillai
Memorial Scholarhsip

A small write-up about the Prof. M.S. Pillai Memorial Scholarship by our beloved Founder-
Chancellor, Professor Dr. (Col.) A Balasubramanian in his golden words –

“Prof. M.S. Pillai was an innovator and an extraordinary professor and management educationist. He was a genius, known for bold initiatives in management education. I happen to be one of his blessed students. After I retired from the army when I came to Symbiosis, Prof. M.S. Pillai was leaving for a Kerala-based institute. But soon he came back to start SCMHRD while I was running SIMS. There was a healthy collaboration between us and we complemented each other, resulting in growth, both for ourselves as well as our students.

Prof. M.S. Pillai introduced meditation and Vipassana as compulsory subjects for his management students. He also mentored many corporate leaders. He was a good learner and a great teacher, totally devoted to his students. He was a kindhearted but tough disciplinarian. An excellent counselor. Thousands of students have benefited from his training and guidance. Above all Prof Pillai was known for his humility and humanity. He was a role model and as his disciple and chancellor of SBUP I must cherish his memory through the Prof M S Pillai Memorial Scholarship.”

Bhimrao Ramji alias Babasaheb Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956) was an Indian jurist, economist, social reformer, and political leader who headed the committee drafting the Constitution of India from the Constituent Assembly debates, served as Law and Justice minister in the first cabinet of Jawaharlal Nehru, and inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement after renouncing Hinduism.
