Anadi Anant  

Anadi Anant was established in Stoke on Trent by Mrs Mishra, who comes from a long family line of Vedic and Sanskrit scholars, authors and university professors. Her family lineage can be traced back at least twenty five generations.

She is the daughter of the late Dr Jayakant Mishra, former Head of the Department of English and Modern European studies at Allahabad University, India. Dr Mishra was the inspiration behind Anadi Anant in the UK and for the Vidya Kendra in Allahabad.

Mrs Mishra is the granddaughter of Mahamahopadhyaya Dr. Umesha Mishra (1895-1967), a renowned Sanskrit scholar and author. The title of Mahamahopadhyaya is the highest honour available to scholars of the ancient Sanskrit language.

She is the great granddaughter of yet another renowned Sanskritist Mahamahopadhyaya Pandit Jayadev Mishra

Mrs Mishra's brother, the late Professor R K Mishra was Head of the Sanskrit Department at Allahabad University.
