Read more about how it all began

Brindala Ananthram hails from the family which conceptualised the iconic Amar Chitra Katha comics. G.K.Ananthramji hand-created the first 10 ACK comic books, incidentally, in Kannada. For decades, it has served as a magical portal for children to know about our country’s heroes, culture, folklore, History, Gods and heritage.

Now she has taken it upon herself to build a unique play-based early years' Learning center which blends the best of Western pedagogy with Indic Knowledge system, and our cultural values. 


Virchus is in the midst of a verdant environ in the heart of Whitefield. The wonderful biophilic campus is  studded with murthis, that are straight out of an ACK comic. Our learning spaces are designed to evoke a sense of wonder. The goal is to provide a large Education-platform where children learn the first principles of life, happiness, value creation and serving the community at large.
