J Krishnamurti rightly said – “Right education is to help you to find out for yourself what you really, with all your heart, love to do. It does not matter what it is, whether it is to cook or to be a gardener, but it is something in which you have put your mind, your heart.”


“ Educational advance among women is the only means to social reform… the treasures of philosophy, literature, science, art must be thrown open to her as to men. … Women’s wisdom as well as men’s is needed to dig deeply and build strongly the foundations of the New India.” 

These words of our founder Dr. Annie Besant reflect the commitment of this Institution towards women education as the cornerstone for making a strong and vibrant India.
