Late Rajulmati Mataji

SHRAVIKA SANSTHA was established in the year 1923 by Rajulmati mataji (Rajubai Devchand Devchand Shah of Gunjoti) at Solapur. Rajulmati was daughter of late Umabai and Devchand Ramchand shah-Nimbargikar. She was married to Devchand of Gunjoti. Rajulmat’s brother Nemchand and sister-in-law Hirubai took care of widowed Rajulmati and encouraged her to take further education. He also availed her opportunity to observe and learn work of various social organizations at Poona and Mumbai.

At the same time Seth Gulabchand Revchand Shah of Gunjoti (distant relative of Rajulmati), in loving memory of his mother Chaturbai started a school to educate women by name CHATURBAI KANYA VIDYALAYA in 1912. Rajulmati’s intense desire to help women, especially widows and destitute of the society and free them from their sufferings she joined Chaturbai Kanya vidyalaya and soon she plunged herself in its work and started shouldering its major responsibilities. She devoted her widowed life to this school soon she sensed the lack of residential facilities for the women who desire to get education in Sholapur.
