About Bhavan

History Of Bhavan

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan : Head Office, Mumbai

“Bhavan is the brain-child of Dr. K M Munshi, a visionary, who dreamt of the moulding every Indian into an ethical citizen rooted in rich ethical values of this great nation.”

Founded in 1938, it had its objectives of promoting and propagating Indian values and culture spanning literature, music, dance and other fine arts. A versatile personality donning various roles as lawyer, creative writer, constitution-maker, freedom fighter, administrator, organization-builder and champion of Indian culture, Dr. Munshi looked upon himself as a "sea shell thrown up by the mighty flood of Indian renaissance."

With the wholesome blessings of sage-like personalities like Mahatma Gandhi and Gurudev Tagore, Dr. Munshi straightway set forth broad-based schemes towards the fulfilment of its ideals. The schemes duly exfoliated, the Bhavan has today grown into a multifaceted, worldwide organization with branches spread the world over.
