Mr. Lalit Gandhi, a name that resonates with diligence and perseverance has been associated with the school since 1959. In his comprehensive study of Mumbai city, he displayed immense foresight, as he chose an ideal location for the school. It was under his guidance that Greenlawns School shifted from Anand Bhavan to its exotic present site, of Worli Seaface. The school has grown from strength to strength and stands tall, as one of the most sought after schools of India.
Mr. Lalit Gandhi is a Chartered Accountant by profession and venturing into this unknown field of Education required a lot of grit and prescience. His confidence, perception and the depth of understanding grew many folds as he succeeded in establishing two branches of the school in a very short span of time. In 1965 when Mrs. Daphne Clare Fraser Thomson decided to leave, Mr. Gandhi took over the reins of the school completely, as his relatives lent a helping hand, he made History as by 1966, two schools were functioning at two different places almost independently of each other.
It is through his sheer strength of will power, to tide over the odds and weather the storms, that he has succeeded in an unexplored territory. It is no mean feat. He has always gone that extra mile to raise the standard of education of both the schools, provide the best infrastructure and resources to witness both the schools blossoming and reaching the pinnacle of success.
Despite the success he enjoys, he is truly humble and down to earth. He is a very kind person. He has defined the character of Greenlawns School and this holy shrine of learning has prospered due to his scrupulousness. He inspires us and leads the way as his rich experience is like the bright sunshine in the darkest hours. He is the rock on whose strength we rely on and he stands by us like the rock of Gibraltar. We feel truly blessed and privileged to be guided by him.
