The Quit India Movement was started by Mahatma Gandhi in August 1943 during second world war asking for an end to British rule in India. Due to second world war, the entire world was hit by economic depression and civilization which took centuries to build up, collapsed. Though the movement united the Indian people against British rule and by the end of the war, Britain’s place in the world had changed dramatically; the demand for independence could no longer be ignored. This resulted in the independence of India on 15th August 1947.
The pre-independence era was the period of dilemma regarding the old education system for the educationists. However, under the able guidance of Gandhiji, the new and practical education system was accepted by the eminent educationists and experimented everywhere in India. Shri Chandravadan Shah, one of the freedom fighters during his Nasik imprisonment welcomed the idea of this new education system and with consultation of his co-prisoners, one of them was Shri Vallabhbhai Patel and other freedom fighters, came up with an idea to start a school which resulted in laying the foundation stone of an organization named “Jeevanbharti”.
