The Banaras Hindu University is the first truly residential Indian University established in 1916 on the pattern of the universities at Nalanda and Taxila. The university owes its existence primarily to the toil of the Mahamana “the prince among the beggars, who begged not for himself but for a cause dear to him” The confluence of oriental and theological learning with liberal arts, science and engineering, Ayurveda and modern systems of medicine and agriculture made BHU a unique Capital of Knowledge wjere East met West. The students passing out of the portals of such a Capital of Knowledge not only possessed professional skills but were also imbued with a deep sense of Indianness. The excellent infrastructural facilities, many of which were ahead of times for India, model campus life and the magnetic personality of Pt. Malaviyaji made BHU the most favoured destination for the talented students and learned faculty from all parts of the country. Although designates as ‘The Benares Hindu University’, the National University has all along bee a truly national institution open to persons of all classes, castes, creeds and of both sexes without any discrimination whatsoever. A large number of home-grown future Builders of the Nation received their training at BHU. It is remarkable success story of the fructification of the dream of a great nationalist visionary Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya.
