Maharashtra Mandal’s Seth Dagaduram Katariya English Medium High School

Late Capt. Shri. Shivrampant Damle, the Pioneer of Maharashtriya Mandal, established this Institution with the group of young and fit people in 1924. During those years it was found that the Maharashtriyan youth had to be directed to enter the services i.e. the Armed Forces, in view of IInd World War. With this motive in mind, Capt. Damle took it upon himself to educate and encourage the youngsters in this direction. The mission was to develop and inculcate an attitude towards wellness, which is the quality of life that one leads. This enabled to nurture healthy, strong, courageous youth who were free of any vices and who had a sense of commitment towards the society and the nation. This led to the setting up of special coaching classes for the NDA entrance examination. All this required to educate and produce good dedicated and committed teachers of Physical Education. An initiative was started in 1932 with the permission from the Government to start a College of Physical Education. This resulted in the establishment of College of Physical Education in the year 1977. It took 45 long years to complete and convince all the authorities. This shows the commitment and dedication of Capt. Damle of Maharashtriya Mandal in achieving his mission.
