A Chinese proverb asserts that a journey of thousand miles starts with the first step and the first step for Annai College of Arts and Science was taken on 14.06.2001. It was the dream child of KKO. Mohamed Ibrahim Education & Charitable Trust which is in reality the vision of the four sons of the Founder, Mr. KKO. Mohamed Ibrahim. While M.Anwar Kabir, our Founder Chairman, dreamed the concept of a college, his elder brother. M.I.Abdul Gafoor, our Correspondent gave a concrete shape to Annai College. Another brother, M.I.Humayun Kabir, Secretary, continues to be our Brand Ambassador through his excellent contacts with the outside world. The youngest brother, M.I.Ahamed Yasin, takes care of the Engineering College. Our management has handpicked the faculty, the best available in the university area and decided to provide always the best educational service to the student community. It is this combination of committed faculty, visionary management and participative student community that has produced the wonder that is called Annai College of Arts & Science . This 17th Year Old College is 5000 students strong and it is already a leader among the colleges in our neighbourhood. Annai College of Arts & Science is run by a Charitable Trust and it lives up to the original objectives of its creation by catering to the economically challenged students hailing from rural segments of Kumbakonam. The course fees is fixed low enough to benefit our students from the rural backdrop. The generous management, in deserving cases, further reduces or totally waives the course fees. Though from a purely financial accounting standpoint, it may be construed as losses, our visionary management deems it as an investment in the emerging future of our great country! The synergy produced by the proactive management and the persistent teachers teaming up (Together Empowering to Achieve More) was responsible for the plethora of University Rank Holders year after year continuously. Welcome to the new experience called Annai College of Arts and Science.
It gives me an immense pleasure to provide Quality Education to Remote and Poor People. We are not restricted to academic excellence. But do we believe in nurturing Patriotism, eco education, good deeds with human values. “Annai Marumalarchi Thittam” is a revolutionary concept which is provided education over hundred poor students. Our eco education namely “Annai Green Revolutionary” is an added value for our academic.
In the beginning of the 21th century a revolution is taking place in education. It is becoming an internationally traded commodity. Because of internet, Educational providers are increasing in large numbers. Global providers are setting satellite computers across the globe. Now education is becoming part WTO and GATs. In this race, ethical and moral values have taken back seat. This has defeated the basic purpose of education.
Our College logo is represented by three birds flying across a rectangle painted grey with blue border. The small bird at the boundary of the rectangle represents the students entering our college. This bird is portrayed unsighted, because students at the point of entry into college are blind to the deeper meanings of reality. But once a student comes under our guidance, he is taken through the learning process and gains insight into the world of knowledge. The third bird with eyes open, flying out of the rectangle represents the fully rounded personality that our outgoing students acquire as a result of our quality education in the classroom and extra syllabus education outside the classrooms.
