About Mahajana Education Society
Mahajana Education Society was started in the pre-independence period in 1937, when the failed students were not being admitted to High Schools, run by the Government. To provide education to such children, the great freedom fighters of Mysore of that time namely Sarvasri. Ramachandra Jois, M. N. Jois, G. Ranganna, H. Anantharao, Agaram Suryanarayana Pandit and other well wishers led by Sri. Ambale Subramanya Iyer laid the foundation to Mahajana High School in Lakshmipuram, in Mysore, which finally led to the present Mahajana Education Society over the decades.
The school which started with only 17 students, for want of space was shifted to this place as the number of students seeking admission increased. Presently we are here at that location, where from it grew and progressed to the present level.
In the sixties, with the leadership and liberal donation from Sri. Rattehalli Ramappa, Mahajana Pre-university College and the First Grade College were started. There were many more who donated liberally.
In the eighties the institution expanded further with the leadership of Sri. R. Vasudeva Murthy, Sri. T. Muralidhar Bhagavat and Smt. Dr. T. Vijayalakshmi Muralidhar. It is presently well equipped to offer education to children from Kindergarten to Post Graduate levels. It includes facility for Education in Law, Tourism, Hotel Management and Research. It has two comfortable hostels for girl students at safe and convenient locations. The Society’s activities are spread in a total of 30 acres of land from two campuses.
A Health club and Gymnasium run by the Society also serve its students and the community around.
Mahajana Education Society is built with the assistance from the ‘Mahajana’ for serving ‘The Mahajana’. Value based education provided by our institutes makes them grow into well equipped responsible citizens of the country.
The students who were educated in Mahajana have occupied highly respected positions in life. We are proud to state that Sri. B. Rachaiah, former Governor of Kerala, Sri. Tulsidas Dasappa and Sri. S.M. Krishna, former Central Ministers. Sri. N. Ramanuja, former Chairman and Managing Director of H.M.T and presently the Chairman of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Karnataka, are only a few of the several Mahajana’s old student achievers.
More than 5000 students, of which about 200 from overseas are currently on the rolls of Mahajana, second only to the Mysore University campus. More than 500 employees including from all levels and all its Institutions, are serving it, fulfilling its goals.
Having celebrated the Silver Jubilee in 1962, Golden Jubilee in 1987 and Diamond Jubilee in 1997, the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations were took place during August 2012.
There have been big groups of humanity, who made us what we are today.
The involved students, dedicated teaching and Non-teaching staff, have served the society relentlessly. Also the parents of its students, the officials in related Government and University Offices and many well-wishers have provided periodic guidance, thus helping in its growth.
Over the decades, the Managing Committee members of Mahajana Education Society have consistently stood-by, supporting its good work.
