99 Golden Years of Prestigious Educational Tradition Since 1922
Shri Gujarati Samaj has contributed largely to the educational scenario of Indore. Its 99 years old history tells the tale of the sacrifice and devotion of the elders of that era. It has no match in the present.
A few Gujarati families made this place their home in the 2nd decade of 20th Century. Their aim was to earn a living. At that time they realized that their children would be cut off from the Gujarati language, culture and tradition due to lack of a Gujarati medium school. Keeping this thing in mind a small school was opened in a single room at the Jail Road in the year 1922 with just 8-10 students. In due course of time, it occurred to them that even the localites were lacking a proper school. This fact motivated them to push the thought of income in the back of their minds and established/numerous educational institutions one after another. Thus a small seed sown in the direction of giving education to Gujarati Children some 98 year is back grew into a large tree with branches in every field from primary schools, middle schools to colleges of different subjects.
At present Shri Gujarati Samaj is a large educational organization dedicated to the cause of education. It represents, not only the City, but entire Madhya Pradesh. Presently it is running 9 colleges and 6 schools . The Samaj has also made its foray in the medical field with onset of Homeopathy Medical College and Research Center . Similarly career oriented courses have been included in Professional Colleges. The Samaj started B. Ed. College in July 2005 and a new college namely Shri Gujarati Samaj Innovative College of Commerce & Science (English Medium) in July 2006.Shri Gujarati Samaj College of Pharmacy started in the year 2007.
Around 1500 teachers and other employees are serving to the cause of imparting education and near about 22,000 students are taking education under the aegis of the Samaj. It is a matter of pride for the Samaj that amongst every 7 students of the University one student belongs to Gujarati College . Shri Gujarati Samaj has given Political Leaders, Ministers. I.A.S. Officers, successful Industrialists, Scientists etc to the nation. Another achievement of the Samaj is that the MP Minority Commission has also recognized the educational institutions run by Shri Gujarati Samaj as educational institutions run by the Linguistic Minority Community and given it Linguistic Minority Certificate.
