F r o m t h e E d i t o r ’ s D e s kLet us Talk...
There has been a long felt need of dialogue between the members of SVKM Parivar. In the past,
members have often voiced their desire to have a common platform during meetings and par-
ticularly, during AGMs. With this in mind, this house journal has been introduced only for pri-
vate circulation among members. The Editorial Team is glad to introduce the SVKM newsletter
once again after a very long gap. This newsletter will display -
- What was SVKM
- What is SVKM
- What will SVKM be
By designing various sections, we have made a humble beginning to connect the history, the
present activities and the future vision. The section ‘Past Presidents of SVKM’ will give details
of each president right from the beginning, whereas ‘Down the Memory Lane’ will revisit the
history of SVKM. ‘Looking Ahead’ will consist of the future plans of SVKM and the rest of the
sections will keep you updated about the ongoing events i.e. the present.
While this is a launch issue, the editorial team looks forward to presenting many more issues on
a quarterly basis in the years to come. In fact, we are already planning to introduce a
Gujarati section in the next issue. We shall strive to improvise each issue and bring forth the
best before you.
Shri Bhagwandas Girijashankar Bhatt
Shri Bhagwandas Girijashankar Bhatt were the first president of Shri Vile Parle Kevalvani Mandal.
He served the mandal as the president from 1934 to 1937. He was very committed to the cause
of the Mandal and did his best to work towards the betterment of the trust. He presided over im-
portant matters such as the establishment of the Rashtriya Shala, the formation and the registra-
tion of the Mandal as an education society among many other
commendable things that occured back in the day. SVKM has come a long way and from one
president to another, every single one of them has devotedly contributed to the cause. They have
all together created the history the mandal now so fondly remembers.
Shri Bhagwandas Girijashankar Bhatt remains one of the many jewels embedded firmly into the
history of SVKM.

has always been a step ahead. Our Food & Beverage department is managed by Mr. Kaikobad Bokdawalla
and Mr. Varzavand Kermani. The department looks after the eateries across the institutions of SVKM. The
contract for NMIMS, Mumbai and DJSCE has been given to F3 whereas that of Mithibai Building has been
given to Aditi Fast Food. Shree Sukh Sagar serves at CNMS, Goklibai, NMIMS Shirpur, NMIMS Bengaluru and

with friendly waiters and incredible chefs. The employees and students of SVKM have so far been happy and
satisfied with the canteens.

has already begun at SVKM School and it shall upgrade to primary from 2018 onwards. Mrs
Sunanda Menon is the founding principal of this highly facilitated English medium ICSE School.
As of now, the focus is on building a child friendly environment with the help of pedagogy experts.
SVKM University will be spread across 250,000 square feet of land. It will have amenities such as
playing fields, open air theatre, cycle stand etc. The recruitment for teaching and non-teaching

The campus of NMIMS Bengaluru is SVKM’s effort to spread southwards. It is located in the heart
of the city and is spread across an area of 8.5 acres. The campus is also divided into phase 1 and
phase 2. While it is highly-facilitated, it also blends with nature in every way. For, the engineers
have designed it such that, that there is in-flow of natural light and air and at the same time the
students have access to everything from wireless LAN to video based classrooms. Apart from that,

to focus on innovative programs customised for the state of Indore. Recognising the fact that the
state has a large number of tribal areas and is an agricultural state, the subject areas are going to
be Biodiversity, Renewable Energy etc. Other than that, it will also have regular programs such as
BBA, B.SC Economics etc. This campus spread across 25 acres of land is definitely bound to
flourish. The project has taken a while to go operational but now that it is on the floors, things
are progressing smoothly.

Sri Bhaidas Bhuta
1934 –Sri Bhaidas Bhuta made a handsome donation and at the same time, SVKM was regis-
tered as an education society. Shri Jinnabhai joined Rashtriya Shala as the Principal.
Down the Memory LaneThe First Decade!
1922 – The foundation stone of Rashtriya Shala was laid by Srimati Kasturba Gandhi
1930 – Rashtriya Shala was registered
1932 – The school was under pressure from the British Government. In the wake of the Charkha
Movement, they were asked to shut down. Mr. Khan, the local police chief who had a liking for
the educational institution and didn’t want the school to close, suggested that he formally
arrest two members who will accept the responsibility of conducting illegal or objectionable
activities while the shala kept running.
Srimati Kasturba Gandhi
Sri Jinabhai Desai
1936 – Srimati Goklibai donated INR 50,000 to Rashtriya Shala. Thus, the school was renamed
Gokalibai Punamchand Pitamber High School as a mark of respect for the donation. Honorary
Secratory Shri Sunandan Divatia was kind to let us know that Shri Bhaidas Bhuta had a significant
hand behind convincing Goklibai to make a donation.
1937 – The proposal of shifting the location of Goklibai High School to Dadabhai Road from
Rashtriyashala Road was met with resistance since it was inconvenient for the students to travel
to Dadabhai Road which wasn’t very developed back then. Shri Jinabhai Desai was also given a
teary eyed farewell by one and all.
1939 – After the Mandal members offered to resign and said that they’d be happy to let others
run the mandal, the residents saw that the intent behind the shifting was good and hence,
relented to it. Thus, Goklibai stands where it does today! Honorary Secratory Sri Sunandan
Divatia also told us that important trustees such as Shri CT Sanghvi and Shri Chatrabhuj Narsee
have been the alumni of Goklibai.
