The most important function of education at any level is to develop the personality of the individual and the significance of his life to himself and to others.

With this note, I welcome the students to the portals of Bhavan’s Leelavati Munshi College of Education and wish them memorable and rewarding study tenure and emerge as professionals with a distinctive edge. Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has come a long way in its quest for fostering quality education in Indian society, education which is deeply rooted in our age-old traditions and culture. I would urge the future educators to study with passion and work hard to reach their goal.
The basic purpose of education is not just imparting knowledge as is generally perceived but also to enable students to understand and discover themselves, realize their complete potential and be a complete human being rooted in our age old traditions and values. At Bhavan’s Leelavati Munshi College of Education, students would progress through increasingly empowering stages, from harvesting information to gaining knowledge, to reaching understanding and finally to forming convictions.
Our objective of imparting professional education, combined with fostering innovative thinking, application of knowledge, inculcating professional ethics and consciousness to social responsibilities, I am sure will be met at Bhavan’s Leelavati Munshi College of Education in an integrated form completely .
I extend my greetings to Delhi Kendra for initiating this endeavour and extend a cordial welcome to the students joining the college and wish them a very promising and successful professional career and life ahead.
