Company Details

Shri H.K. Arts College Ahmedabad, also known as Shri Harivallabhdas Kalidas Arts College is managed by Brahmchari Wadi Trust of 155 year old Gujarat Vidyasabha. The institution  was founded by Sir Alexander Kinlock Forbes an English officer in 1848. Initially known as Gujarat Vernacular Society, it aimed at the development of Gujarati Language and Literature. Renowned Gujarati poet Dalpatram was the first secretary of the institution. This institution has been fortunate enough to get the services of scholars, men of letters and social workers. The institution has pioneered many activities in the field of Literature and Culture. The credit of starting the first newspaper in the state, the first girls school and the first monthly magazine “Buddhiprakash” goes to this institute. A Library is basic to any education institutions, so the institution  took an initiative of translating important books from all disciplines in to Gujarati. This institution has published more then a thousand books. It was this institution that saw the dream of establishing the Gujarat University under the leadership of visionaries  Late Shri Anandshankar Dhruv and Late Shri Dadasaheb Mavlankar the first speaker of Indian Parliament. They also played an important role in translating this vision into reality.
