Shri Rambhai Ratadia (Founder)
The 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.
But 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.

Aims of the Institution:
1. To provide education right from the Balmandir to higher education in the field
    of action of the Trust.
2. To conduct non-formal education and adult education centres for youths and old
   - deprived of education.
