For Dr. V.K Bhatnagar, establishing a school meant finding an institution whose roots lay in Indian values. With tangible ideas and a great vision, he started a unique concept of providing meaningful education to the children. This all began in a rented rook of old Rajinder Nagar, Double Story where he was joined by Mrs. Mamta V Bhatnagar and a few teachers to help him realize his dream of giving quality education to the children. The concept of ‘Manav Sthali’ advocating universal brotherhood first took shape and cut across all barriers of cast, color and creed. The doors of Manav Sthali were first opened on Oct 2, 1957 a great day for Manav Sthali to take birth wherein the horizon had to be deep enough to embrace multi cultures of a society divergent in its traditions and colorful in its customs.

To accomplish anything great one must first dream, then believe and finally act. As early as 1957, Dr. V.K. Bhatnagar has envisioned an institution that would impart meaningful and quality education to our children—a new vision of education to harmonize the ancient aim of self knowledge. To meet these aims the school has a holistic perception of an all round development of a child. A congenial environment is provided for nurturing students: physically, mentally, emotionally, morally and aesthetically under the enigmatic and dynamic guidance of Mrs Mamta V. Bhatnagar, Director and Founder Principal. Emphasis is laid on the enrichment of the human spirit which alone can bring about social transformation and the creation of a new consciousness that would enable the students to meet the challenges. They are provided with unlimited opportunities to pursue their interests, be it academics, co-curricular or sports. In the changing global scenario, when barriers and boundaries are crumbling down, promoting world peace and cultural harmony is the underlying philosophy at Manav Sthali. For same, various international exchange and interchange programs are organized. School keeps pace with the changing times and technology in order to provide enriching learning experience to students. Latest equipments are made available to enhance the teaching-learning experience such as smart boards. New subject streams with well equipped labs such as media studies, fashion studies, biotechnology have been introduced. In order to preserve and bequeath our culture and tradition, the school celebrates various festivals like Janamashtmi, Diwali and Christmas. The hearts and minds of children are ignited with a patriotic fervor during the celebration of Independence Day, Republic Day etc. Children are taught to work together, to preserve and enhance natural environment and to become sensitive towards social issues. The school believes in adding that little extra of everything—hard work, commitment, dedication and sincerity, which, when combined with the ordinary makes the school extraordinary.

Genio- The Kung Fu Panda

Genio- the Kung Fu Panda is the first official mascot of any school ever in Delhi. Genio, meaning genius in Spanish, epitomizes the spirit of the school. This mascot symbolizes courage, persistence, hardwork and a never say die attitude just like Po, in the film Kung Fu Panda. Po, in the film Kung Fu Panda overcame every hurdle that came in his way to become a Kung Fu fighter and it was with the same idea that the concept of Genio was developed. During competitive events, Genio stands as a morale booster for the students. He provides them with the encouragement that every contestant requires on the field. Genio is not simply a mascot, he is the symbol of inspiration and motivation providing a drive to every student to strive and become the best they can.
