It would be instructive to remember that Kulapati Kanhaiyalal Maneklal Munshi founded the Bhavan a full decade before the advent of Independence. 7th of November 1938 was the beginning of an 'Adventure in Faith'. A faith in India's Past, Present and Future. The founding of Bhavan was based on the preservation and propagation of Bharatiya Sanskriti (Indian culture) and Sanskrit, the mother of languages, the akshaya patra - the inexhaustible reservoir. This unpretentious endeavour was backed by Kulapati Munshi's amazing pragmatism. Over the years from being a modest Indological research institution, it has steadily grown into a comprehensive, co-operative, apolitical, national movement with an international outlook. It seeks to inculcate a value-based life. The promotion of ethical and spiritual values in everything that it does.

The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, an internationally reputed institution dedicated to the promotion of education and culture, is a charitable public trust founded by Dr. Munshi on november 7, 1938. The founding members of the Bhavan include Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of the Republic of India, Shri C. Rajagopalachari, the first indian and last Governor General of India; Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of free India; Sardar Patel, Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister, several distinguished scholars, statesmen and leaders of modern Indian renaissance. From small beginning, the Bhavan has grown into a great intellectual, cultural and educational movement with 112 Kendras in India, 8 overseas Centres (in United Kingdom, United States of America, canada, Portugal, South Africa, Kuwait, Maxico and Australia) and 280 constituent institutions, besides a number of affiliated colleges.

Good morning friends, now answer sheets have been sealed and locked and so is our result. Discussion is good but no need to fretter about & do the autopsy of each question. Each has worked hard and each to his understanding has answered to the best of his knowledge and state of mind during those two hours. We all have made judicious choices and silly mistakes. Its normal to be anxious about cut off but now let the ‘God’ do his part. Just relax for 1 or 2 days more and get back to mains and those who have cleared their respective state CSE or other exams please also do not ignore those mains too. God is there and something are best left to him. Never underestimate the power of Prayer and keep moving. Perspiration and persistence never goes waste but we shall have perseverance too and thank you Vinay sir, Insights has helped me organise my skewed preparation for CSP-15. Now help & guide us with mains too because I am totally clueless and directionless now. God bless us all.

A fine opportunity for a grand settlement was missed. Both Mountbatten and his Chief of Staff Lord Ismay pressed Jinnah to return their visit and come to Delhi as Mountbatten’s guest, at least for a day. The Quaid-e-Azam would have returned to the city of his achievements as a head of state. The morale of Muslims in the city and beyond would have lifted. An overall settlement would have spared the subcontinent the bitterness which the endless Kashmir dispute has spread for decades to this day. Hyderabad would have been spared the invasion and the massacre that followed. In the deal, safeguards for the Muslim minority and the composite culture of Hyderabad could have been stipulated. Kashmiris would have lived in peace and with dignity. A democratic solution, rather than one based on force and duress, would have been accomplished. In a plebiscite Jammu and Kashmir would have voted for accession to Pakistan. No one then talked of a regional plebiscite. Jinnah’s oft-stated ideal of the two states living as friends would have been realised. The minorities’ fate would have been different. History would have taken a far saner course in a land that has known nothing but strife and bloodshed. That was not to be. Jinnah willed it otherwise .
