Founders Of Mahila Vidya Peeth

Smt Nagamma Patil and Padmashree Sadar Veerangouda Patil

The first lady M.L.A. from Bombay-Karnataka, Smt. Nagamma Patil, and Padmashree Sardar Veerangouda Patil created MAHILA VIDYA PEETH in Hubli in 1934 under the name Harijan Balikashram. In Karnataka, Sardar Veeranagouda Patil was a seasoned figurehead for the freedom movement. He was a renowned Gandhian and constructive worker who contributed greatly to the cause of educating women folk and the freedom of war Harijans. His selfless dedication and sacrifice in the fields of education, Harijan upliftment, and freedom struggle are all praiseworthy. He began his career as a Life Member of the Karnataka Lingayat Education Society, Belgaum (K.L.E. Society), which is today one of the largest educational organizations in Asia, with the goal of advancing the cause of education. He was one of the K.L.E. Society’s first seven members.

Cofounder of mahila Vidya peeth

Smt Leelavati magadi and Shri Venkatesh magadi

The contribution of the Magadis to the freedom movement in Karnataka is unique. Leelavati, the only daughter of Shri. Veeranagouda Patil by his first wife Sundaratai inherited the graces, beauty and determination of the one and the sense of social services and sacrifice of the other.
So the choice fell on Shri. Veerangouda Patil. From her very childhood, Leelavati breathed the air of independence and patriotism. She accompanied her father in his tour of the country. In 1927 he visited Shantiniketan. He was so much impressed by the atmosphere of the Niketan that he decided to admit there, Leelavati who was just seven years old. He asked her whether she would, and her quick and firm affirmative answer settled the matter. That is how Leelavati came to be influenced in her early children by the teaching of Ravindranath Tagore. Later she was admitted to the Kanya Maha Vidyalaya, another national school in Jullundar. Though she spent much of her time outside, the national activities that were carried on in Karnataka were not unknown to her, both her parents being in the very thick of it. Prabhat Pheri, Picketing, boycotting the foreign goods, spinning, and the frequent visits of the police, the arrests and the release were part of her life. 

She usually spent her annual summer vacations in Hubli. It is during that time, she came into contact with the young band of Congress workers like Venkatesh Magadi, Shirrang Kamat, Narasimha Dabade and others housed to frequent their house. Venkatesh Magadi was treated as good as a member of the family.

She and Venkatesh Magadi decided to marry. The course of true love never did run smooth. There were objections to the marriage from different quarters for different reasons. Shri. Patil himself was not happy about it. He did not want his daughter to go in for a life of instability and suffering and deprivation. Their marriage, however, did take place on January 26, 1942 in a very simple manner befitting freedom fighter. On august 9, 1942 both of them plunged into the Quit India Movement. She was arrest and kept in the Hindalga jail for eleven months as a detune. After her release she was helping the underground workers. In freed India her services and sacrifice came to be recognized and rewarded, so to say. She worked as Deputy Minister in Jattis ministry. After the Congress split in 1969 Venkatesh Magadi decided to join the Congress (R) while Leelavati chose to remain in the Congress (o)for some time. They remind one of the Kripalani.


Foundation stone laid by Dr. Babu Rajendra Prasad On 27-4-1949

Construction of this stunning auditorium and prayer hall cost Rs. 15,000,000 (fifteen lakhs). Dr. Babu Rajendra Prasad laid the cornerstone on April 27, 1949. As Mahatma Gandhiji’s Holi Chita Bhasma is maintained in this auditorium, the edifice bears his name. (In reality, Mahatma Gandhiji’s advise and inspiration were what led to the founding of this organization.)
