Glimpses of history of Trust and schools
Every community has its own literature from which one can evaluate ts greatness of culture and civilization. It is a matter of pride that our Sindhi community occupies a high position in this respect. Sindhi community possesses great ideals and royal heritage of the world. We Sindhis the heirs of Sindhu civilization have been the victims of one of the larges migrations at the time of partition of the country. Sindhis had  to sacrifice their mother land, their shelters their properties and belongings. None of the other communities except Sindhi community has sacrificed so much for the nation.
Having left the entire Sindh and facing many challenges of life the vicims of this great community rehabilitated themselves in the refugee camps provided for them in various parts of India. Among them Deolali Camp was one of the refugee campwhere we started standing on our feet and began to earn our bread. But the great thinkers and well wishers of our community started thinking about educating the children whose education was disrupted. In those days the children also has to earn to share their household expenses of help their parents in their work. To facilitate such student they thought of starting morning shift school. Hence they organized a trust viz. Nav Bharat Vidya Mandal. The dignitories who worked hard to start school were the roaring lion of Sindhis Dr. Choithram Gidwani, Padmashri Dada Jivanlal Jairamdas, Shri Mansng Chuharmal, Shri G.H. Jodhani and others. The trust started a school in south Deolali under the name of the Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.Subsequently in 1949 this school was shifted to Ahmedabad where it was run in two areas (i) Kubernagar  (ii) Sabarmati Ranip. In main School at Kubernagar the classes for Std. V to XI were started Std. V to VII classes were started in the open space of the garden in Sabarmati camp. For a few months the school in Kubernagar was run temporarily in Beggars’ Home. Then it was shifted to vacant plots of Bunglow  Area by errecting the class rooms of bamboo chips. While the pupils of Sabarmati branch had to seek admission in Kubernagar for Std. VIII to XI by crossing the river and walking a distance of 10 to 12 kms.
In 1953 this school was shifted to  military barracks of New ‘G’ Ward Kubernagar where classes for Std. V to XI were started. Having got the plots on cheap rate, central government aid, financial assistance of some public institutions and the loan amount taken, a Pakka airy building was  constructed.
In 1958-59 Mrs. Suchyata Kripalani and Acharya  J.B. Kripalani recommended the central Govt to sanction funds from Prime Minister fund for plot and building for M.G. High School building including the stage was built with the co-operation and voluntary services of the Students. A lot of development of the building is being made constantly since then.
It was a matter of pride that M.G. High School got approval to start Higher Secondary wing consisting general stream as well as science stream. The School started both the streams and big laboratories equipped with modern facilities were provided for physics, chemistry and biology.
In 1980 the principal of M.G. High School Shri A. M. Khatwani and the Principal of Dr. C.G. High School Shri K.T. Bhatia got plots on lease for 15 years.
The new generation having the craze for English medium the strength of Sindhi medium students has been decreasing since the year 2000. Naturally it affected the number of classes. Looking to such circumstances Dada Mahadevbhai Kheskani after taking the charge as President of Nav Bharat Vidya Mandal proposed to start English medium classes simultaneously. Hence English Medium was adopted along with Sindhi medium in both the schools. The number of English medium students in increasing day by day and the totl strength of such students in both the schools has reached to 1600.
To improve the standard of English medium various training courses and the classes like SCOPE were started. The concerned teachers are being sent to renowned English medium schools to take the visits and observe their good qualities and implement them in the schools. The infinite contribution of Shri S.P. Uttamchandani an active educationist and our trustee plays an important role in this aspect. He dreams that the standard of our Schools should be as good as that of International Schools as such both the Schools hae been linked with E-learning connectivity which was the earnest desire of our Nav Bharat Vidya Mandal.
In 2009 Sindhu Sewa Samaj with its financial aid built up a nice and magnificent dome known as Dada Jivanlal Memorial Hall in the open plot of Mahatma Gandhi High School which includes a wide stage with pious atmosphere all around. The inauguration of the hall was held on 3-1-2010. This is an unforgettable act of Social Service for which the credit goes to Dada Mahadevbhai Kheskani and Shri Sudhirbhai Khurana. The plot lying in the back yard of the building has been resurfaced and an open air theatre with a stage has been built. Beside the beautiful dome in the front side of te building a rich library hall on the line of Sindhology of Adipur and  Sindhu Bhavan of Ahmedabad has been built in the loving memory of Shri Varandmal Galani. It has been a neck rising memorial for our community. Art of living inspired by Shri Shri Ravishanker Maharaj and various other activities are run in another spacious hall named Shri Gurmukhdas Somani Hll. Apart from these halls Nevandbhai Mangharani computer room and Santwani Memorial Hall are also beautifully constructed which add to the beauty of the school building. With the construction of these halls the scarcity of halls experienced herebefore by the local public has been solved to a great extent.
During these six decades the population of Srdarngar township having grown extensively, many new schools came into existence. Most of their organizers, principals and members of staff are alumni of schools of Nav Bharat Vidya Mandal.
