About our College

Bharat Education Society, Rukadi (converted into a Trust and renamed as Balasaheb Mane Education Trust in 1991) was established in the year 1984 in the loving memory of Late Sambhajirao Mane, the only son of the founder president shri. Balasaheb Mane, (then the M. P. of Ichalkaranji). Earlier in his life, Shri. Balasaheb Mane had to struggle hard, as he hailed from a moderate family background. He climbed up the ladder of success starting from the sarpanchship of Rukadi to the position of the M.P. of Ichalkaranji constituency that gave him the opportunity to reach the masses and read their genuine difficulties and the reasons thereof. He had been a keen observer who could understand that helpless, poor and unenlightened masses could be relived of their socio-economic problems only through education.

Our Motto

The motto of our Trust is Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktye meaning knowledge is the only thing that liberates humans. It signifies that the tradition of ancient India denied some people knowledge as they were treated to be unequal, viz., the untouchables and the women. Those who were economically poor went automatically away from it. Hence, a hierarchy was created in the Indian society and those who were deprived of education were chained to it.

This practice stopped their progress and they were further marginalized. Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj and Mahatma Jotiba Phule tried to break this vicious circle by opening new horizons of knowledge for all, as they knew by experience; knowledge only has the power to free all from all bondages.
