Late Shri OP Jindal,
former Member of Parliament, philanthropist, industrialist of Haryana had a
vision for a progressive state where men and women would be equal to each other
and in their equality lay the secret for the state's advancement.
The result of this
vision was the birth of Vidya Devi Jindal School, a girls residential school
at Hisar in Haryana (India). It was the maiden venture of the Vidya
Devi Jindal Rural Development Trust established in 1981 by Shri OP Jindal. The
school became functional in July 1984 and was granted affiliation by Central
Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the same year.
The motto of the
school is enshrined in the Sanskrit words ‘Vidya
Jyoti Jeevan Jyoti’ which means 'the light of knowledge is the light of life'.
All efforts are directed towards the achievement of this objective considering
that education is a social vehicle, which must drive you to forge ahead and be
a carriage for new ideas.
