The word ‘Manava’ literally means, ‘a being with a mind’ from the Sanskrit word ‘Manas’. It refers to a ‘thinking mind’ capable of making it’s own decisions. Education is nothing but the training, discipline and direction of this mind towards health, prosperity, growth and peace. A son of the soil of this land of Bharat would be Bharati. The Message of MANAVA BHARATI therefore, is to make every student a ‘Bharatiya’, a harbinger of happiness to humanity at large.
O Child !
The spirit of Innocence, love incarnate
Thou art messenger of peace and harbinger of harmony,
In thee I see the glory of His
Who made the life and is the life
Thy very existence is the sure sign
That the lord of life has not forgotten
The Earth of ours, bequeathed to man
With all its grandeur bounty and beauty
Though greed, jealous, fear and selfishness
Have filled the earth with tears and agonies.
But the day is not far when Man shall realise
The purpose of Life, the power of love
The need of harmony in words and deeds
These and all such these would be part of life
When the power and potentialities enshrined in thee
Are felt and adorned with faith and dignity
