===== A Brief History =====
When Mr. Ganpat Prasad Sah (Founder), the great visionary thought about a ‘dream work’ then only thing that came to his mind was “Publication”. Years later when we think of writing a successful history of this firm and researched for the same, then we come to know that the inspiration of the founder for that must be the soil of which he belongs, that is Bihar.
Bihar, a place where,
- Prince Gautam attained enlightenment and became the Buddha,
- Guru Gobind Singh who installed the final version of Guru Granth Sahib which finally became the Holy Scripture and the final Guru of the Sikhs was born,
- Maharishi Valmiki original author of the Hindu epic The Ramayana lived,
- Kautilya (Chanakya), the author of Arthashastra & Nitishastra lived,
- Nalanda and Vikramshila the oldest residential universities were established,
- Lord Mahavira, the founder of a great religion, Jainism, was born and attained nirvana;
And a lot more name & places which are associated with the great tradition of spreading knowledge & culture not only across India but across the world.
So, it was quite obvious why a publication like Kiran Prakashan Pvt. Ltd. takes birth at Patna in Bihar more than 45 years ago and later on became a right choice for all those students who are searching jobs in Banking, Staff Selection Commission, Railways, MPSC, GPSC, BPSC, etc.
The Founder and the Chairman, Mr. Ganpat Prasad remains a man with the great ideologies and under his guidance this publication nurtured in such a way that for so many years uncountable numbers of career oriented students are getting success. He never thought about a business but as a true follower of Gandhiji he always dreamt of a smiling Indian and who smiles when he/she gets a good job. Thus he started this tradition named “Kiran Prakashan” for all those people who are searching for a good government jobs.
