Indian culture and civilization are considered the world’s oldest and most ancient civilization and culture. Since Mahabharata period, our country was fully developed in terms of education, culture and civilization. Manusmriti has a stanza
एतद्देश प्रसूतस्य सकाशादग्रजन्मन: |
स्वं स्वं चरित्रं शिक्षेरन् पृथिव्यां सर्वमानवा : ||
It means, at that time the condition of woman was respected and prestigious and vibrant. There is the description of near about twenty five female sages who knew the mantras well. Gargi, Maitreyi, Sita, Anusuya and Apala etc. were the main example of the advanced stage of women. That is why the whole world believed India to be Jagatguru.
But since the Mahabharata period, the all-round decline of this country began to take place and the condition of women went down day by day. Our mythical narrow ideology made this decline even more dynamic. The excellent scholar of the Vedas and Upanishads, Aadi Guru Shankaracharya did great work for the restoration of Hindu and Indian culture, but he also did not understand the importance of women and denied the right to education for women by saying- “Stree Shudrau nadheeyatam”. In time, during the reign of yawans and foreign invaders, the honor of women was hurt more. As a result, the woman became a commodity or a footwear in the general society.
At the time, when Maharshi Dayanand came on this land, the condition of woman was not up to the mark. He had experienced that without the upliftment of women, the salvation of society and nation is not possible because the women are also an essential part of the society as men. Maharishi Dayanand revealed the secret that the person without education is incomplete. Women can not be aware until they become educated.
The knowledge that was locked in the vedas, providing the key to the lock not only to the men but also to the women-
यथेमां वाचं कल्याणी मावदानि जनेय: |
बह्म राजन्यायां शूद्राय चार्याय च स्वाय चारणाय ||
(That means, The God has given the light of human beings only.)
The absence of literacy or proper education has been the main reason for all problem related women. At present, we are continuously trying to change the condition of women. This college is a little contribution to make the campaign for the awakening of women worth while, provided by Swami Dayanand Saraswati.
To prove the ideals of Arya Samaj this college was established for the education of women and was established as the first college of Purvanchal for the same purpose.
Since its establishment, the college has made an invaluable contribution for the multifaceted development of girls. In the arts and cultural field of education, the college has constantly waved its glory, which is a matter of pride. Various academics and non-academics activities are conducted throughout the year in the college. The college students participated in different competitions increase the pride of the college with confidence. May the college run continuously on the path of such progress, wishing this from the God and best wishes to the family of the college.
