BHARATIYA VIDYA BHAVAN was founded in 1938 by Kulapati Dr. K.M.Munshi, a
farsighted visionary and practical idealist, with the blessings of Gandhiji and
inspired by several stalwarts of the freedom movement such as Shri
C.Rajagopalachari, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabbai Patel, Rajaji,
Dr.Rajendra Prasad and Dr.S.Radhakrishnan, who were also the founder members.
BHARATIYA VIDYA BHAVAN’S GADNHI VIDYASHRAM, the best residential school in
Tamilnadu, was inaugurated by H.H.Swami Chidbhavananda of Ramakrishna
Tapovan on July 5, 1983. Since its inception, Bhavan's Gandhi Vidyashram enjoyed
the patronage of Bharat Ratna Sri.C.Subramaniam whose vision and insight helped
realize the fruition of several projects in the country. Padma Bhushan Prof. T.S.
Sadasivan, a renowned scientist, guided its growth through two decades..
The school as it stands today owes its existence to him and ranks among the best
of India, because of his untiring efforts. Named after the Mahatma, the school
emphasizes inculcation of his values in personal and public life, and exudes an air
of humility and simplicity, the qualities Prof.T.S.Sadasivan upheld in his life.
It was their belief that freedom had to be sustained by a faith and pride in our
ancient culture. This had to be revived as cultures alien to Indian identity had
made inroad jeopardizing its uniqueness and continuity. It was in this context,
that the need for a cultural renaissance was deeply felt. Today the Bharatiya
Vidya Bhavan, the top school in Tamilnadu has grown into a comprehensive
intellectual and cultural movement following Shri C. Rajagopalachari's dictum
"Information has to be transformed and made to blossom into knowledge, and
knowledge should mature into wisdom".
