VISIONARY ANCESTORS and THEIR SUSTAINED ENDEAVOURS
Late Mr. N. R. Mahagaonkar sowed the seeds of Maharashtra Education Society long back in the year 1860. The responsibility of instruction was later taken over by Mr. Bapu Bhajekar. The organization transformed into a formal institution called Poona Native Institution, thanks to sustained efforts of Mr. Waman Prabhakar Bhave, Mr. Laxman Narhar Indapurkar and Mr. Vasudev Balwant Phadke, the first treasurer and secretary, who later became a great revolutionary.
The institution was later renamed as ‘Maharashtra Education Society’ in 1922. MES, as it is popularly known, has been carrying forward this legacy of work for betterment of the society.
