Mangalam Group of Publications and Educational Institutions is the brainchild of Late Sri. M. C. Varghese (1933–2006), Mangalappallil, Kottayam, who was a visionary leader and adventurous entrepreneur. From its humble beginning in 1969, Sri. Varghese raised the flagship company of the group, Mangalam Publications India Ltd., to one of the leading publishing houses in India. Today the Mangalam Group publishes the Mangalam daily newspaper, several weekly magazines and an online newspaper. Mangalam TV and Radio Mangalam, both begun recently, are also slowly ascending the popularity graph.
An enthusiastic entrepreneur, Sri. M. C. Varghese diversified into the educational realm in 1985. He acquired a 30+ acre lush green campus at Mangalam Hills, Vettimukal, Ettumanoor and launched a prestigious English Medium Residential School there under the banner of Mangalam Educational Society. In 1995, he founded Mangalam College of Education (B.Ed/M.Ed) in the same campus. With the founding of Mangalam College of Engineering (B.Tech/M.Tech) and Mangalam Institute of Management (MBA) in 2002, Mangalam Group became a by–word for “quality education near at hand”. The CBSE School, M. C. Varghese College of Arts & Science and Mangalam School of Architecture and Planning (MASAP) begun in subsequent years became permanent memorials for Sri. M. C. Varghese who passed away on 9th January 2006. After his demise, his family has taken over the baton. Currently his youngest son Sri. Biju Varghese is propelling the institutions ahead as Secretary of the Mangalam Educational Society and Chairman of the Mangalam Group of Educational Institutions.
