Resume of Dr Jagdish Gandhi
Dr Jagdish Gandhi was born on 10 November, 1936 in a poor family in the Barsauli Village in district Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India. Influenced greatly by Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave and others, a young and idealistic Jagdish Gandhi ventured in 1959 to create a new mindset through education. With just five children on roll, no personal wealth, and the equivalent of Rupees 300/- (US $10) in borrowed capital, the motivated Dr Gandhi began his own personal experiment in Lucknow, India, some fifty one years ago in the name of City Montessori School.
