Priyadarshni Academy was set up in the year 1985. It is a non-profit, socio-cultural and educational organisation which was established by Founder Chairman now Chairman Emeritus, Mr. Nanik Rupani with the association of a group of people like Mr. Murli Adnani, Prof Popati Hiranandani, Mr. Jamnadas Lalwani, Ms. Kaushi Mirpuri, Mr. Ramkrishin Advani, Mr. Chander Manghnani, Mr. Madhav Balwani and Ms. Anila Sunder.

Priyadarshni Academy will be completing 32 years of its endeavours on 19th September 2016. The Academy was started with the aim of rendering service to humanity. Mr. Nanik Rupani believes that service to mankind is the best work of life. Since we have taken so much from the society, it is our duty to pay back.

The Academy has successfully met its goals consistently since its inception. We are happy that we have been able to provide educational assistance to deserving and needy students. The Academy provides opportunities to talented artistes in the fields of classical music and dance, painting and sculpture, to give them recognition by organising shows and also promotes awareness programmes on Vedic Research amongst others.
