History of Veda Vyasa

Veda Vyasa Vidyalaya is one of the premier educational institutions in the country. The history of this famous school can be traced to the Vijayadashami day in 1981. The ‘Vidyaniketan Nursery School’ (the initial name of the Vidyalaya), under the auspices of the 'Bharatiya Kalakshetra' was a dream come true for the then Swayamsevaks who were keen on starting an educational institution in Malaparamba wedded to the rich cultural heritage of the nation.

The school had its humble beginning in a thatched hut near the house of Sri P. E. Subhash Chandran. It was renamed as ‘Vedavyasa Shishumandiram’ in 1987-88. The school started functioning officially from its present site in 1991 under the name Vedavyasa Vidyalaya. While the venerable Siddhinathananda Swamy laid the foundation stone of the school, Padma Vibhushan Parameshwarji inaugurated it. This important decision was taken at a meeting held in the house of Sri Subhash Chandran on the instructions of Sri Nandanan Master, the then district coordinator of Bharatiya Vidyaniketan. Valuable guidance was given by manya Chandrasekharji, in charge of the education wing of RSS.

This is an important milestone in the history of the school. Incidentally, Sri K. P. Madhusoodanan, who attended the meeting, later became the mainstay of the school. In addition, Sri Dr. K. P. Sivadas, Sri Colonel Ayilyath and Sri Madhavan master also led the school from the front. Late Sri A. V. Bhaskarji, Sri NCT Rajagopal and Sri A.C. Gopinath also played a stellar role in the overall development of the institution. The piece de resistance was a visit to the school by the then President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. The presidential visit will always be remembered as an event written in golden letters in the history of the school. The renowned institution continues its triumphant journey by scaling new peaks of excellence.
