Ramjas College Wikipedia
Founded in 1917 by the great educationist and philanthropist, Rai Kedar Nath, Ramjas College is one of the oldest colleges of Delhi. Beginning from the humble precincts of Darya Ganj in Old Delhi. The College was named in memory of Lala Ramjas, father of Rai Kedar Nath, the founder of the college. In its starting days, the college was run by the Ramjas Foundation - an educational foundation that runs schools and educational institutions in Delhi. When University of Delhi was formed in 1922, there were three colleges to be first established and brought under the University, Ramjas College, Hindu College and St. Stephen's College. Ramjas College has since been a humble part of the University. After formation of DU, the college was brought under government control but Ramjas Foundation kept looking over the administrative works of the college.
In 1924, the college moved to a new campus at Anand Parbat (which was then called Kala Pahad) in Delhi. The college was then inaugurated at its new location by Mahatma Gandhi, who was also a good friend of Rai Kedar Nath. But during World War II, the college had to cede its campus at Anand Parbat to Allied forces. In the same period, at time of Quit India Movement, a group of Ramjas students went ahead and joined the freedom struggle which resulted in them being arrested and jailed. A plaque with their names inscribed on it has been put up near the college auditorium gate in memory of the brave students.
The college relocated to its current location in 1950. Dr Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India inaugurated the present building on January 17, 1951. He even sent his daughters to study here. After the death of Rai Kedarnath, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, the architect of Constitution of India and first Minister of Law and Justice of India, acted as the Chairman of Governing Body of Ramjas College, the only College in Delhi that had the honour of having him in its Governing Body.
The college's red coloured building is surrounded by trees and foliage which has earned it the title 'Rainforest'. A Seminar Room and a Conference Hall form the nucleus of all the academic conferences, events and proceedings of the college. It has volleyball, basketball, football and table tennis facilities.
