Bharati College, Delhi was established in the year 1971, Bharati College, Delhi is affiliated to University of Delhi
A constituent college with permanent affiliation to the University of Delhi, Bharati College was founded by the Delhi Administration as Bharati Mahila College in September 1971. It started functioning from the premises of a Government Senior Secondary School for Boys located on Link Road in Karol Bagh. With 241 students and 13 members of the staff, spread over six disciplines, for the first two years the college would start only at 12.00 noon after the boys’ school gave over. By the third year, however, the College had taken over the building full time. Situated tantalizingly next to the erstwhile Naaz Cinema and the Mata Ka Mandir on the one hand and the Bhuli Bhatiyari Ka Mahal and the Buddha Gardens on the other the College was barely a kilometre from the main Karol Bagh market on the one side and 3 kms. from Connaught Place on the other. In many ways, the location also defined the College, the 'Pahariwala College' as it was known in common parlance.
The three years that one spends in College, between school and the larger responsibilities of life, are the most magical years in the life of any individual. It is a time of growth, of change, and of realizing one's potential. Moving in the right direction, making the right choices and laying a firm foundation will ensure a vibrant and productive future. Bharati College promises to provide as many facilities as possible for the full development of both, the psychological as well as the intellectual development of its students. But you must come forward and sieze the opportunity. Nobody will either push you or wait for you. But if you take the first step yourself, we assure you that the effort will be well worth it. Even though I have spent the better part of 30 years in teaching, I continue to be pleasantly surprised at the transformation that occurs in our students over the three years that they spend with us. It is facinating to watch timid and retiring young girls bloom into confident, assertive and mature young ladies with a voice of their own! So Come, prepare for a fulfilling life, no matter what you do, where you go...
When it began, the College offered courses only in the B.A. Programme (then known as B.A. Pass) and a few vocational courses like Office Management and Tailoring & Dress Designing. It has since expanded to include honours courses in English, Hindi, Sanskrit, History and Political Science besides offering instructions in B.Com (Pass) and B.Com (Honours) courses. Job oriented courses like Computer Applications, Family & Child Welfare and Office Management and Secretarial Practice are also popular courses under the B.A. Programme. Part-time self-financing courses in foreign languages such as French, German and Russian; DOEACC level computer courses and certificate courses in Journalism are open to the regular students of the College as well as outsiders.
Since its very inception, the College has boasted of an exceptional NCC Unit which won the Vice Chancellor’s Trophy for the Best Women’s College in NCC in 1980. Our cadets have distinguished themselves at All India Competitions as well as at the District level, winning positions in Para Jump, Home Nursing, First Aid, Drill, Sliding, Trekking, Archery Judo, Firing and Civil Defense.
The College was allotted 8.6 acres of land in Janakpuri in 1976-77. Since building could not commence immediately, jhuggi–dwellers took over the site and it was only in 1985, after a massive drive that the College could re-possess the land. Construction of the College building started in 1994 and in 1998 the College shifted to its new location at C-4 Janakpuri. Toady, situated amid undulating gardens in an eco-friendly environment, with 23 classrooms and 46 tutorial rooms, a seminar and conference room, a studio theatre and 3 Computer Labs with over 120 computers, the college also boasts of basketball and volleyball courts, kho-kho and throw ball fields and a full-fledged cricket ground. Our very pro-active NSS Unit and Eco-Club look after the Rain Harvesting System and garbage disposal, maintaining pits for wormi-culture and a herbal garden. The College now produces enough manure to not only take care of the needs of the College gardens but also to be able to sell it at a reasonable rates to members of the staff interested in gardening and to any other takers.
The College takes pride in the fact that Shri Sahib Singh Verma, erstwhile Chief Minister of Delhi, started his career as a Librarian with Bharati College in 1971. Distinguished theatre director Anuradha Kapoor also started her teaching career at Bharati College and today one of her students, Danish Iqbal, trained at the National School of Drama and a fellow with the Charles Wallace Trust in the U.K supervises the Drama Society of Bharati College, Chilman. Dr Asha Gupta, Reader in the Dept. of Political Science at Bharati College, today heads the Directorate of Hindi Medium Implementation at Delhi University. Shri L.K. Advani was the first Chairman of the Governing Body of the College and Dr (Mrs) Lalita Panigrahi, drawn from the Dept of History, Lady Shri Ram College, its first Principal.
The Students’ Union of Bharati College was affiliated to the Delhi University Students Union in 1984 and though the collaboration has not always been a happy one_it led to a number of strikes and violent reactions over the years. It also produced some outstanding student leaders like Amrita Dhawan, who was Vice President of the Delhi University Students Union in 2005-2006 and President in 2006-2007. In 2008, however, a majority of the students of the College voted for disaffiliation from the Delhi University Student's Union and today the Bharati College Students Union follows its own trajectory.
Bharati College Students have done well in practically all walks of life and wherever you go in Delhi, you are bound to bump into an ex-student. It is also particularly heartening to welcome back in our midst, as colleagues and teachers, our own students, like Ruma Sinha and Sonia, who have joined the English and Commerce departments respectively of the College.
‘Bharati’, meaning speech, is also the title of Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of the Arts and Knowledge. The College has as its motto the saying ‘na hi gyaanen sadrisham pavitramih vidyute’ meaning nothing in this world is more sacred than knowledge. The College endeavours, constantly, to live by both, its name and its motto.
Bharati College, one of the only two women’s colleges in West Delhi, is a constituent college of the University of Delhi and caters to about 1500 students, offering instruction in ten disciplines in the Arts and Social Sciences.
Besides the BA Programme, where students can choose from 4 languages (Hindi, English, Sanskrit and Punjabi) and 7 Discipline Courses (Economics, History, Political Science, Computer Applications, Office Management and Secretarial Practice, Family and Child Welfare and Music) the College offers courses in
B Com Pass and B Com Honours, as well as Honours Courses in English, Hindi, Sanskrit, History and Political Science. The College also admits students keen to pursue a Master’s degree in Hindi.
Besides their academic commitments, students must also choose one co-curricular activity (out of NSS, NCC and Sports). The College has a very active cell of the National Service Scheme as well as a very capable and enthusiastic wing of the National Cadet Corps. The NSS works with physically and visually challenged students, inmates of the Tihar Jail, as support staff for the nearby Deen Dayal Hospital and with many other agencies.
The NCC parade takes place on Thursday afternoons and on Saturdays. Many of our NCC cadets go on to sit for the ‘C’ and ‘B’ Certificates, making them eligible for employment in the army and other wings of the government.
In sports, the College has extensive fields with a state-of-the art basketball court, a volleyball court, kho-kho and throw ball fields and a fully developed cricket ground. Any student interested in sports is welcome to join the various teams, even if she has not been admitted on the sports quota.
The College offers a number of avenues for personality development and nurturing of talent through extra-curricular activities in theatre, dance and music as well as debates and literary and cultural activities and departmental societies. Chilman, the dramatic society, the Eco-Club and the Gandhi Study Circle also motivate students to be actively involved with their environment and the world around them.
The College also offers a number of facilities to its students, amongst them a fully digitized library, three computer labs with more than a hundred computers with broadband connections as well as access to a number of portals under the UGC-Infonet E-journal Consortium, a seminar hall, a committee room as well as a studio theatre. We are also equipoped with a photostat and phone booth, a large canteen and an extension counter of the Punjab National Bank in the College premises.
There is a fully equipped medical room, manned by a medical doctor, as well as a counselling centre for those who need psychodynamic counseling in the colleges premises.
The College also offers part-time, self-financing courses in foreign languages (French, German and Russian) as well as computer courses and Certificate Courses in Journalism to prepare students for the world of work. These courses run in the afternoons after regular classes are over, are manned by highly trained personnel and place great emphasis on practical training and hands-on instructions.
