The Journey …

Sometime during 2005, two young minds thought to contribute significantly, for a place where world of competitive exam was in infancy and professional education was about to begin. The initial journey was not so encouraging, but it was thought: “why to curse darkness, it’s better to lit the lamp” (अँधेरे को क्यों धिक्कारें, अच्छा है एक  दीप  जलाएं) and Zignasa Education was born. Later, it became a family and finally a destination for a greater success in almost every segment of 12th standard competitive exams be it prestigious IITs, reputed Medical colleges or brain storming KVPY and Olympiads. Zignasa has proved its credentials almost every sphere of professional training. Finally, it acquired the shape of Zignasa Education Service Pvt Ltd in June-2013 with supports of many successful students, dedicated faculties and committed School Principals, who entrusted upon us in shaping their gems.

The two like-minded young technocrats Sasyesh and Qayum were instrumental in carrying forward the legacy of success during the last decade. Dr. A.Qayum, belongs to 2004 Batch (B.Tech) of IIT Kanpur ( and he was earlier in IIT Delhi which he left because of inapt department as per his interest, and reappeared at IIT-JEE exam and consequently moved to IITK. This is the prime reason that he decided to guide and counsel students so that an ill-informed student can chose his college that best maps his/her potential. Later, he completed his Ph.D. on Bioinformatics and presented a research paper funded by Dept of Science and Technology, Govt of India in London, UK. He has published dozens of the research papers in peer reviewed national and international Journals. He believes serving fellow human beings is absolutely one of the most important things that we can do on this planet.

Mr Sasyesh Chaturvedi is an entrepreneur in recognition, academician by work and philanthropist by character. He was selected in various competitive examination including IITJEE, and due to of his keen interest in teaching and love of the Physics subject, he chose his Graduation with Physics from ICFAI University and Post Graduation in Information Technology from Don Bosco University. He earned entrepreneur certificates from the SP Jain Mumbai and Stanford University California, USA. However, as per the belief system which Mr Sasyesh carries, “the highest acknowledgement is hundreds of IITians and Medicos which he has jointly produced with help of their parents and the concerned schools”, especially his first batch of IITJEE 2009 where many students for the first time from the Diamond city, made it to IITs (Roorkee, Delhi and Bombay) along with several into NITs such as NIT Trichi, Surathkal, and SVNIT Surat. Having compassion for the fellow countrymen, both has contributed a lot in nation building by being active partners in social projects (Udaan and Gifted30) by teaching financially deprived section of the society by teaching 100+ students free of cost in Varacha Surat regions. At Zignasa, we believe that “every child is unique” and IIT/Medical Entrances are not difficult but different, which requires specialized training.
