Hon. Prataprao Bhosale (Bhau)
President & Trustee, Janata Shikshan Sanstha, Wai

 

        Janata Shikshan Sanstha’s Kisan Veer Mahavidyalaya, Wai, affiliated to Shivaji University, Kolhapur, has a very long glorious tradition. Kisan Mahadeo alias Abasaheb Veer, a veteran Freedom Fighter, took initiative to establish a college at Wai in 1962 in order to impart quality education to the students residing in the remote corners of Wai. Koregoan, Khandala, Mahabaleshwar and Jaoli Talukas. Before Janata Shikshan Sanstha was duly registered, “Arts and Commerce College, Wai” had been run by Pradnyapathshalamandal, Wai headed by Tarkateertha Laxmanshastri Joshi, a renowned Sanskrit Scholar. When Janata Shikshan Sanstha was duly registered on 12th July 1967, the college was transferred from Pradnyapathshalamandal, Wai to Janata Shikshan Sanstha, Wai. After the demise of Abasaheb Veer in 1979, the college was renamed as “Kisan Veer Mahavidyalaya, Wai” in order to commemorate his contribution to the establishment and development of the college.

During the last fifty six years, the Management has taken steps to introduce such courses as M.A. (English, Marathi, Hindi & Economics), Science Faculty, Yashwantrao Chavan Maharasthra Open University, Nashik Study Centre, B.C.A., Entry-in-Services Coaching Centre, M.Sc. (Organic Chemistry), and such facilities as huge playground, Students Co-operative Store, Parking, Canteen, Women’s Hostel, Indoor Sports Hall, Wrestling Complex, etc. The Management has shown a great sense of social commitment by constructing “Jai Kisan Boys Hostel” for the students belonging to the families affected by the suicides of the farmers in Maharashtra. All the stakeholders of the college have provided financial assistance to the construction of this hostel. The Management now plans to construct a State-of-the-Art Library with the capacity of One Lak books.

            Currently, the college provides, along with conventional graduate and post graduate education, Short Term courses such as Basic Beauty Culture, Fashion Designing, Harmonium, Tabala, Guitar Playing, Singing, Army and Police Pre-recruitment Training, Library Management Certificate Course, National Cadet Corps, National Service Scheme, KRISHNAI Magazine, Cultural Department, Students Council, Scholarships, Freeships and Students Aid, Earn and Learn Scheme, Shivaji University Students Welfare Fund,  Alumni Association, etc. It has also made available training and facilities for playing Cricket, Volley Ball, Handball, Archery, Kho Kho, Wrestling, Badminton, Table Tennis, Kabaddi, Mallakhamb, Dandpatta, Lathi-Kathi and Lezim.
