Mr. F. G Pearce, better known as Mahatteya among his colleagues in the schools he worked, was a man of distinct goodness and sincerity. He helped Scindia School sprint in the path of progress when he it was just taking baby steps.
Being an Oxfordian and a person who had a penchant for public schools, Mr. Pearce gave Scindia a healthy Indian background to grow on. He was responsible for laying the foundations of a culture that is better known as “Scindian” to this day. Stories and incidents of him and his tenure at the school are till date legendary anecdotes that echo in the chambers and the corridors of the school and the barracks.
