A Doctor who had a care for the economic illness of the land. A visionary who could visualise schools, colleges, hospitals and bank on a barren land. A leader who could motivate a generation to believe in him. A man who had courage to dream and the conviction to realize his dreams. Dr. T.M.A. Pai was all this and more.
Dr. T.M.A. Pai Foundation, a Konkani Linguistic Minority Trust, was established in 1981 to perpetuate the memory of (Padmashree) Dr. T.M.A. Pai, physician, educationist, banker, philanthropist, an outstanding Konkani, one of the greatest visionaries and the Founder of the internationally famous Manipal Educational Institutions. The Trust was established with an objective to support and promote the advancement of educational activities and promote the Konkani Language and the culture of Konkani speaking people.
