The word ‘Manava’ signifies, ‘a being with a mind’. It is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Manas’ which implies a ‘thinking mind’ capable of making it’s own decisions. Education is trains, disciplines and directs this mind towards health, prosperity, growth and peace. Besides, a child 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 for all.
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
