Shri Bhagwandas Todi College,
Lachhmangarh is a Tehsil headquarter of Sikar district of Shekhawati region of the State of Rajasthan.
Till 1964, the town was quite backward and students of this area had to go to distant places for achieving higher studies or were compelled to give up their desire for it. Though the lack of facilities for achieving higher education were felt, nobody came forward to fill the gap perhaps due to lack of motivation, inspiration and determination. However, Late Seth Shri Bhawgandasji Todi took the problem deeply for the first time and decided to establish an Institution for providing higher education.
With the establishment of Shri Bhagwan Das Todi Charitable Trust in the year 1960 in Mumbai, the seed was sown for the birth of an Institution of higher education in this town. The then State Chief Minister, Shri Mohan Lal Sukhadia, inaugurated the College on 8th July 1965 thus, fulfilling the dream of Shri Bhagwandasji Todi.
The unique emblem has two circles and in the space between them appears the name and place of the Institution i.e. SHRI BHAGWANDAS TODI COLLEGE, LACHHMANGARH-SIKAR. In inner circle there is a lamp stand having three lamps and on top of them are the words “ASTO MAA SADGAMAY”.
The emblem symbolizes the main object of the College. The stand of the lamp indicates the stand of life and the number of lamps indicates three main objectives viz.:
- To lead from darkness to light.
- To lead from untruth to truth.
- To lead from death to immortality.
The lamp always gives light meaning thereby light of knowledge, which comes through education. The main objective of the college in the region of Shekhawati of Rajasthan for last 47 years has been to spread such education that enables a man to achieve the main objective of his life.
