The concept and Aims of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan
The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan – founded in Mumbai in 1938 by Dr. K.M. Munshi, a visionary and multifaceted personality, conceptualized Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan as a comprehensive national organization. It has grown from small beginning into an all India intellectual, cultural and educational movement. Its aim is to revitalize India’s intellectual, cultural and educational ethos. It seeks to preserve the ancient values of India i.e. Bharat and harmonize them with the changing needs of modern times. Bharaitya Vidya Bhavan has a nationwide network with 125 Centres.
It has extended its activities abroad with seven International Centres with the avowed objective of building up a commonwealth of faith, hope and human values. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru once referred to it as “a very fine institution which deserves every encouragement and support. The Bhavan is an adventure in faith.”
Bhavan’s Pune Kendra commenced its activities on 2nd October 1983 with Shri. M.R. Yardi, ICS as its founder-Chairman and was inaugurated by Swami Ranganathanandaji Maharaj of Ramakrishna Mission of Bellur Math.
