INDIAN SOCIETY was in cultural, social and political chaos when Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati was born in 1824. He grew up in an environment of political subjugation, where he witnessed extreme casteism, superstition and wide spread illiteracy and inequality. During his lifetime he openly stood against evils such as discrimination on the grounds of caste, creed, sex, economic status and social bigotry. Unfortunately, the task of social resurgence was too vast to be completed during his lifetime and when Maharishi attained Samadhi in 1883, the Indian society was only partially reformed, with the onus of completing this unfinished task falling on his followers.In 1885 the first DAV SCHOOL was established at Lahore, which was subsequently upgraded to become the first DAV College and in 1886 the DAV College Trust and Management Society was established and registered and since then there was no turning back. It is not surprising, therefore, that in a very short span of time over 586 Public schools have come up in a various parts of the country and abroad under the management of the DAV College Managing Committee.
