Media coverage of Banasthali University, Banasthali Vidyapith Rajasthan, Rajasthan
Banasthali is a unique, fully residential women s university which offers an integrated system extending from the primary to the Ph.D. level.
The origin of Banasthali is unique in more ways than one. Banasthali owes its existence neither to the zeal of an educationist, nor to that of a social reformer. It is also not the creation of a Philanthropist s purse. It has arisen like the fabled phoenix from the ashes of a blossoming flower Shanta Bai that had withered before its bloom. It is a spontaneous filling up of the vacuum caused by Shantabai s death.It was on October 6, 1935 that Smt. Ratan Shastri and Pandit Hiralal Shastri founded Banasthali to fill up the vacuum caused by the sudden death of their highly talented and promising daughter Shantabai. They had high expectations that she would work for women s cause when she would grow up. Love, eternal love has been the fountainhead of all the thinking and action and this spirit has been the motivating force.
Over these seventy one years Banasthali has developed into a National Centre for women s education. Banasthali s educational programme aims at an all-round development of the student s personality. To achieve its objective of synthesis of spiritual values and scientific achievements of the East and the West , it has evolved Five-fold Educational Programme (panchmukhi) comprising of the following aspects : (i) Physical, (ii) Practical, (iii) Aesthetic, (iv) Moral and (v) Intellectual. This way the students develop an integrated and balanced personality.
Banasthali is one of the five universities in India meant exclusively for Women. This institute has made full use of the autonomy provided under the deemed university status and has innovatively restructured the courses offered which include subjects ranging from the traditional as well as the areas to the emerging areas to the highest level of research (leading to the doctoral degree). Recently Banasthali has been accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC ) with A Grade (Five star Rating). Banasthali is a recipient of SANTBAL Award in the year 2000 for the services in the field of all round education of women.
The rural ambience is very conducive for promoting the ideology of simple living, and for imbibing and internalizing the values of self-reliance and tolerance. Following the philosophy of the balanced Panchmukhi system of education, the institute provides ample opportunities for integrated development of the personality. The stress on the positive aspects of the Indian heritage has resulted in a climate which has contributed significantly to the task of the upliftment of women to enable them to take on leadership roles with confidence.
Vision and MissionThe concept of Banasthali took form in an ethos of dedication to the nation. It also had before it a vision of Indian Culture. Therefore Banasthali s whole architecture stands upon the twin foundation pillars of Nationalism and Indian Culture.
While the Banasthali University was very clear about the perspective in which its educational efforts were to be made, it did not have a clear picture of the form and pattern of educational programme which was to be adopted, except that it should be able to promote development of a balanced and harmonious personality of the students and so should be different from the form of education prevalent at that time which emphasized book learning to utter neglect of all other aspects of education.
The Banasthali Universities aim of a full and balanced development of students personality got concrete expression in the form of Panchmukhi Shiksha which evolved out of initial experimentation. Panchmukhi Shiksha attempts a balance of the five aspects of education, namely Physical, Practical, Aesthetic, Moral and Intellectual.
The Banasthali University aims at the synthesis of spiritual values and scientific achievements of the East and the West. Its educational programme is based on the concept of " Panchmukhi Shiksha " and aims at all round harmonious development of personality. Emphasis on Indian culture and thought and simple living including khadi wearing are hallmarks of life at Banasthali.

Panchmukhi ShikshaFive Fold Education (Panchmukhi Shiksha)
Banasthali University aims at the synthesis of spiritual value of the East and scientific spirit of the West. It encourages the development of balanced personality through its five-fold educational Programme, known as â€˜Panchmukhi Shikshaâ€™. This programme, which evolved from experimentation, attempts a balance between five aspects of education: Physical, Practical, Aesthetic, Moral and Intellectual.
The main thrust of all the activities of the Banasthali University is the development of a complete personality. The institution firmly believes that the personality consists of interdependent components, each being equally important requiring equal attention. The â€˜Panchmukhi Shikshaâ€™ addresses the following aspects.
Physical: Under physical education programme various activities like parade , shooting, riding, flying, girl guiding, bulbul, swimming, yoga and various modern and traditional sports like kabbadi, kho-kho, hockey, basket ball, badminton, long jump, high jump etc . are included.
Aesthetic : After learning music & painting up to class v, students can choose either music (vocal or instrumental) or painting. Dance education is being provided to all levels.
Practical : Under practical education sanganary printing & dying, batique, bandhej, tailoring, embroidery, craft, papermache etc. are included under domestic education. Students are supposed to perform cleaning and washing and collective Shramadan.
Moral : The aim of moral education is to develop personality of the students, so as to cultivate in them the feeling of respect for all religions. It is achieved by the means of weekly prayers, talks, Veda, Geeta & Ramayana path etc. The common evening prayer and Udbodhen program is unique.
Intellectual : Intellectual education is being given to the students in order to avoid the relative aspects of modern education. Natural and social sciences with languages and Maths are being taught with sciences from the beginning . Education methods are adopted with the help of projects related to social and natural environment. Banasthali University never believes in examination-based education system. It gives emphasis on practical education.
This way the students develop an integrated and balanced personality.
