About the founder

The Gandhi Vidya Mandir was established in 1950 envisioned by Shri Kanhaiyalal Dugar, on the Gandhian ideals, who later embraced sainthood.

Gandhi Vidya Mandir was the vision of Shri Kanhaiyalal Dugar. He was born and brought up in Sardarshahr, in the erstwhile princely state of Bikaner. Although he belonged to a very distinguished and wealthy family, he had a spiritual inclination since his childhood. He idolized Mahatma Gandhi and much of those ideals are embedded in the University. Shri Dugar went to Wardha and consulted Acharya Vinoba Bhave and other Gandhians like Kaka Kalelkar, Kishorlal Mashruwala, Krishnadas Jaju, Shriman Narayan Agarwal and Madalsa Ben. Vinoba Bhave who said ‘Spread Light Where It Is The Darkest, Spread Education Were Illiteracy Is The Highest’; the reference was obvious – Kanhaiyalal’s home town of Sardarshahr, in the starkest desert region of Rajasthan. The project was conceptualized there and the name of Gandhi Vidya Mandir was decided. Later on, Shri Dugar consulted some other prominent personalities like Dada Ravishankar Maharaj, Swami Sharnanand, Hanuman Prasad Poddar, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Acharya Tulsi and Jayaprakash Narayan. Sardar Patel had promised to lay the foundation stone of Gandhi Vidya Mandir but he died. Devised as India’s first Rural University, its foundation stone was laid in 1955, by Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India.
