Overview


After independence lack of quality educational facilities for Hindi speaking students, particularly in the Burrabazar area was engaging serious attention of several enthusiastic social workers of the Marwari community. Founder Members of Gyan Bharati namely Sri Hari Charan Garodia, Sri Nathmal Bhuwalka, Sri Matadin Khaitan, Sri Purushottam Kejriwal and Sri Nathmal Kedia took the lead in the matter. Several eminent persons like Sri Sitaram Seksaria, Padma Bhusan, Sri Anandi Lai Poddar, Ex-mayor of C.M.C. and M.L.A. and Sri Rameshwar Lai Tantia, the then M.P. were also associated. As the first step, Gyan Bharati Society was formed on 24. 12. 1959. On 13th September, 1960 the foundation stone of the school building at 64 A, Nimtolla Ghat Street, Kolkata-700006 was laid by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, an eminent philosopher and educationist and the then Vice-President of India. He spelt out the basic doctrine for Gyan Bharati as 'practice of truth is the real education'.The different schools under Gyan Bharati started functioning at different points of time. Gyan Bharati Vidyapith and Gyn Bharati Prathamik Vidyalaya were the first two schools which started functioning on 26th January, 1962. Keeping in view the paramount importance of girls' education a separate school for girls namely Gyan Bharati Balika Vidyalaya was established in 1967. Similarly with the growing importance of English medium education, Gyan Bharati Vidyalaya (Eng. Medium) was started in 1986 as a co-educational school.

Additional Details

Gyan Bharati's emblem is a glowing lamp symbolizing the light of knowledge that dispels the darkness of ignorance. The motto of the Institution is "Aroha Tamaso Jyotih" i.e. graduation from darkness to light. Providing excellent education to the students is of course the most important mission of Gyan Bharati. However, our aim is not only to prepare the students for brilliant results in public examinations but also to equip the students for effectively meeting the challenges of the competitive world that is emerging. Adequate initiatives are taken and necessary opportunities provided for character building and all round development of the students' personality so that they can become worthy citizens of our country. Creative thinking by the students is encouraged and they are so nurtured that they imbibe moral and aesthetic values, a keen sense of duty and responsibility and a genuine concern and loving care for others and a strong urge for betterment of the environment. Swami Vivakananda said, "Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man" and that is the kind of education Gyan Bharati seeks to impart.
