The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, conceived and founded by Dr. K. M. Munshi in 1938,as a Trust, Society and a Non – profit organization, with the hearty blessings of Mahatma Gandhi and active support and co-operation of several eminent mass leaders like Sardar patel, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Sri C. Rajopalachari, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan and Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, has today grown into a comprehensive pan-India intellectual, cultural and educational movement. It is totally apolitical. Its founder Kulapati Dr. K.M. Munshi looked upon the Bhavan as an ‘Adventure in Faith’, a faith in India’s past, present and future.
