BHARATIYA VIDYA BHAWAN

The Prakashan Mandir, the Publication Division is by and far one of the most important of the 35 and odd Constituent Institutions of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. Kulapati Munshiji significantly christened it the Book University. The primary aim of the Bhavan’s Book University is to publish books and periodicals which provide modern knowledge, inculcate ethical and moral values are taught to us by our great cultural heritage, help build up the character of our young boys and girls and release their creative energy in an absorbing, fascinating way.

Within fifty-seven years (1951-2008) Bhavan’s Book University has grown from strength to strength.

The Bhavan has so far published over 1,800 titles,, all intended to promote education, art, culture and ethics. It is a heartening sign that right from its inception in 1951 the Bhavan’s publications received very wide welcome in India and abroad and the sales have now crossed over twenty nine million copies. An impressive record by any standard! When the one-lakh mark was crossed in 1957, Rajaji said: “That the Bhavan’s books and periodicals devoid of sex, smut, sensationalism crime and gossip are selling so well is proof positive that the soul of India is still sound.”

Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, a great ;lover of literature and one of the Founder Members of the Bhavan releasing the one hundred thousandth copy of Rajaji’s Ramayana and Mahabharata said in 1957 that the Bhavan has made “publication history” in India and predicted that Bhavan will herald much needed wholesome “Book Revolution”.
