Humble Beginning

Bharati Vidyapeeth had a very humble beginning. Bharati Vidyapeeth had its birth in a small room in a remote corner of an old part of Pune City. The onlookers then could not digest the word "Vidyapeeth" (University) in the name "Bharati Vidyapeeth". A newspaper once sarcastically commented that this Vidyapeeth borne in a congested lane of Pune City, would meet its natural death there itself. But that was not to be so. Bharati Vidyapeeth flourished and flourished extensively.
