Shanta Bai
It was on Oct. 6, 1935 that Smt. Ratan Shastri and Pt. Hiralal Shastri  founded
Banasthali Vidyapith to fill up the vaccum caused by the sudden
death of their highly talented and promising daughter Shantabai .

Our sweet lovely flower
withered before its hour.
Joy descended sorrow flew.
From the ashes garden grew.
ShantaBai is not a name to be cherished.
It is a conceptual symbol of
an educational and social philosophy
dynamic in approach,
rich in content ,
full of realism,
freshness and vitality
