In the early thirties Malleswaram was a beautiful locality with tremendous serenity and fine elevation. It was during this time Sri M L Srinivasa Sastry and Smt. M.L Sundaramma settled down for a purposeful life. On 31st December 1933, HYMAMSHU was born. His searching questions exhibited his thirst for knowledge. Hymamshu was considered as a child prodigy.
Unfortunately at the age of three he fell into the grip of Bilious Infantile Cirrhosis. He was snatched away fro the world on 28.03.1936. This created a great void in the life of the young Shastry couple.
A great zest for life coupled with an optimistic philosophical bent of mind and a spirit of service led them to think of a fitting memorial for the departed soul.
Educationists and men of letters of the decade like Dr. M.V. Gopalaswamy, Sri. B. Sundareswara, Sri. H. Yoganarasimham, Smt. Saraswathamma, Smt. R Kalyanamma and many others persuaded and prevailed on the Sastry couple to start a Kindergarten in their compound to serve the cause of children’s education. The inspired Sastry couple commenced a Kindergarten, a Vihar for the children of the locality.
The institution was perhaps the first of its kind in Bangalore when Nursery Education had just made a beginning. A significant feature is that Kumari Chithra, the younger sister of Hymamshu was the first pupil of the Vihar.
Year Established: 1900
