original founder of the Amarbharti
institution Shri Rambhai some
time reached the boundary of some
village. There was a ‘Vav’
seen on the boundary. Stones fixed
to the Vav and the architecture
marked on the stones became a
centre of interest for Shri Ramabhai.
Deep well on outskirts of the
village and the basin of that
well saying yesterday’s
story. He would feel bricks of
some dilapidated building hardly
seen as extraordinary.
That place was like a ‘tribheto’.
There the boundaries of Amdavad. Kheda
and Sabarkantha meet. There villages
of Dahgam. Kapadvanj and Bayad Taluka
seem to stand as if side by side.
That place was known as ‘Radhuma
bhoyara’. The popular talk –
the rumour was that there are charus
of gold in the its inner part. The same
popular talk has created various fears
also, about that place.
Rambhai found and declared that it was
only an old ‘nagari’, of
the time of Mahmud Begda, pressed and
buried under the footprints of time.
There is a fort of Rajput tradition
of the thirteenth century ! O, it was
simply ruins breathing its existence.
The importance of that fort was great
in the researching eyes of Rambhai.
As love arouses for man, So also for
land. Ramabhai was crushing and trampling
the jungles for his Ph.D. study. At
that time he had no idea that the good
fortune of burning fire pit on this
land has been created for him. At the
time of research of the fort he lived
at the Kedareshwar Muhadev. There was
no facility. He used to eat potatoes
cooked in fire (lit on ground) on the
shore of the river. He used to stay
in temple at night and take bath in
the river. One shore of the Vatrak river
near Pavathi village in Amdavad district
and the other shore of Kedareshwar Mahadev
- near Telnar village in the Kheda district.
A big frightening jungle near Kedareshwar
Mahadev. At that time, wild animals
like the tiger, the wolf were living
there. People of the surrounding villages
were afraid of passing through this
jungle. Thieves and robbers of the Kheda
district used to come on the opposite
shore of Vatrak for hiding, while thieves
and robbers of the Ahmedabad and the
Kheda district used to go lo ravines
of the opposite district to hide.
People were dependent on the sky-farming.
They used to bring fishes from the river,
they didn't know farming. There were
no vegetables seen. They would brew
wine, drink and lie idly. Rambhai studied
this region. He felt, really I should
work in such economically, socially
and educationally backward class people.
The soul of Rambhai who was coloured
with the Gandhiau thoughts in Gujarat
Vidyapith cried aloud that I want to
sit here liting fire. He left the business
of photography in full swing in the
city. He left the further study of Ph.D.
and determined that: "I should
do the constructive work here'. He formed
the three agriculture societies (inandalis)
through the Gujarat State Rabari - Bharvad
rehabitation scheme and purchased the
land for conducting constructive activity.
The festival was celebrated at the Kedareshwar
Mahadev Tirthdham under the chairmanship
of Shri Harisinh Mahida, the then co-operation
Mantrishri of the Gujarat State. On
this occasion workers of the village
- uplift co-operative activity motivated
by Gandhiji and the workers coloured
with sarvoday activities also were present.
As said by the poet Shri Sundaram, if
there are dreams of desires then they
descend as achievement. On that basis,
the Trust named Amarbharti was registered
on 10-9-1979 at Ahmedabad with the target
of constructive activities of education
culture and Jankalyan.
