About Banaras Hindu University & the Mahila Mahavidyalaya: –
Banaras Hindu University, the largest residential university of Asia is an institution of repute, ranked no.-5 in NIRF ranking of universities and one of the twelve institutions of the nation declared ‘Institution of Eminence’. Since its inception in 1916, Banaras Hindu University has been striving for the education of women. Its visionary founder Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya foresaw the immense importance of women’s education and the vital role of women in the development of the country. However, the current social environment proved to be a deterrent. Mahamana decided to address this by opening a college – exclusively for women, in which an amalgamation of Vedic ideals and modern scholarship would work towards shaping Indian women to play their roles as capable citizens. In his convocation address on 14 December 1929, Mahamana announced the establishment of the Women’s College of the Banaras Hindu University.
